In tomorrow’s Top Five Tuesday, we’re going to look at the Top Five Scenes that should have ended with Booth and Brennan in bed. I’m pretty excited about it, I must admit. But what got me thinking on it was the idea that sometimes, I just don’t know HOW Hart Hanson and the BONES writers would manage to get themselves out of scenes, if they were writing books instead of TV episodes. These are the dorky things I wonder about when I’m driving to work each day. If these were books instead of TV episodes, where they can flash from scene to scene, there is NO WAY they could just…end a scene like they do sometimes. A lot more on this tomorrow.
But then it also got me to thinking about how…since we are all assuming Booth and Brennan have not ended up in bed together yet…what DOES happen between them when their special moments are over?
And here is what I think might happen.
I think Booth may have said to Brennan… “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
I don’t really have proof of this, and it’s possible that I’m wrong, but I can just totally see it being his thing, that he says to her, whenever they part ways. So then, fast forward years and years to after the GraveDigger trial, and Brennan is feeling anxious, but in a way that Booth can’t solve. Right? That was sort of the first time we’d ever seen that, and I think we can take from Booth’s actions and re-actions that it was the (if not one of the) first times he’s really seen that. So he goes along with her, just to sort of appease her. She hails a cab, and he says, “Let’s get you into a cab,” as if he’s the one in charge all along (this is just so…him all over, as Brennan would say) and everything is just totally fine and normal. And then he leans in and says, “I’ll see you tomorrow,” and she doesn’t reply. And that’s…I don’t know, that’s when he knows something’s really not right. That’s really the “End in the Beginning” or whatever, right?
But let’s fast forward almost a year later, and Brennan has just watched Booth accept the gift of the phone from Hannah, and she’s decided to go home for the evening to let Booth and Hannah be alone. What does she say to sort of signify that everything is fine on her end?
“I’ll see you tomorrow.”
And it’s THAT statement that sort of pushes Booth into action…more than any other thing we’ve really seen this season, it’s that that makes him follow after her. Do you agree? It’s almost like in the middle of all of the things we think are their things…this one sort of slipped past us and is right there!
Is that even possible? Not that Brennan was giving Booth a secret message that she wants him desperately or anything. But do you think it’s possible that “I’ll see you tomorrow” is what they’ve said to just encourage one another over the years?
What do you think?
