…I figure it’s time to talk about something just as important. And that, of course, is all of the times B&B should have ended up in bed together. Okay, okay, not all of the times…just five.
First of all, don’t get me wrong. How many episodes are there? 110? There are easily 110 moments that should or could have ended with Booth and Brennan in bed. But these are moments that are almost implausible in that they didn’t. Am I saying I’m annoyed that they didn’t fall into bed together?
…………No, I’m not annoyed. Okay, okay…sometimes, I might feel slightly annoyed, but for the most part, I’m cool with the journey. But here are five times when I really wouldn’t have complained.
- The ending of Glowing Bones in the Old Stone House
It’s not hard to imagine. Brennan had already told Booth he had to clean up. He’d smiled, but you know Seeley Booth makes good on his promises, in and out of the kitchen, if you catch my drift. So, Booth, with a smile and an apron, stands at the sink and washes the dishes. Brennan dries them, making sure to point out that she’s doing half of his job. Booth tells her he did more than half of the eating, which makes them even. Brennan says that doesn’t make sense, but she laughs. Booth laughs too, and they stare at one another. When the last dish is washed, Booth dries his hands on the towel in Brennan’s hands. She starts to pull back, but he tugs her closer and kisses her, just in thanks for dinner and for being awesome. She wraps her arms around his neck and…yada yada yada!
2. After Booth is drunk on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial
Booth isn’t a prude, I’m sure, but it wouldn’t surprise me if a little alcohol would make him a little more inclined to satisfy his biological urges. And I’d like to think that tipsy Booth makes Brennan want him just a bit more. And they’d just gotten done talking about how he had no direct knowledge of how good she was in bed. Come on, you KNOW Brennan was dying to prove it to him. So, she invites him back to her place (he really shouldn’t be driving after all. It’s only rational), and she invites him to crash on the couch (which lasts about 10 seconds). In the morning, he might be a little stunned, wondering if what happened really happened. But when she turns to him and gives him that small smile that proves it was all real, he’ll lean over and kiss her and it will all be good.
3. The ending of The Man in the Outhouse
Surrogate nothing, just dinner and drinks. Good conversation, social setting. Just gotta be open enough to see it. Seeley Booth was in the zone that night. And Brennan was beyond gorgeous. She was pretty the entire episode, but in that black dress, and with that vulnerability? Impossible to resist. Booth doesn’t stand a chance. He walks her to her door, and she pauses, and he knows exactly what that means. He smirks a bit and she eyes him with haughty disdain. But after she unlocks her door, she really looks at him, and his smile fades. Then he swallows and tucks her hair behind her ear, leaning down to kiss her just at the corner of her mouth. Brennan shudders and falls back against her door. But because she’d opened it, it falls open, and they pretty much trip over the threshold. And then, as pal Smurfs would say, “Shut the front door”, because it would be all over then. Nothing but trails of clothes on the living room floor.
4. The ending of Bond in the Boot
This one is almost too easy. Have they ever been cuter? Possible, I guess, but seriously…
Her shirt is wet; she has to borrow one. Hmmm… ‘come on back to the bedroom, Bones. I’ll get you one’. Easy peasy. It’s the weekend. Booth’s feeling like a man and his plumbing’s gonna be fine (insert your own joke here).
5. The hug scene in Boy with the Answer.
How does this scene end without them kissing and more? I’m completely serious. I don’t care what else has happened between them in season five. Brennan has confessed her vulnerability. Booth walks toward her, promising her that everything is going to be okay. He promises. Brennan falls right into his arms. Then what…they pull back? Booth says “I’ll see you tomorrow?” (I’m mocking myself here, I know it). It’s the only scene on this list from the middle of an episode, but it’s also the reason this list even exists. I honestly do not even know how they could have written themselves out of this scene without B&B kissing.
Of course, them kissing doesn’t mean they are going to fall right into bed with one another. But I gotta think that it won’t be far after. Oh y’all, it’s so going to happen sometime. Glug Glug Freaking Woo HOO!
Okay, okay, now it’s your turn. With 105 other episodes to choose from, I’m sure there are moments you like better than the ones I’ve chosen. And with a topic like this, I can’t WAIT to hear what they are. Talk to me!
