Good morning, BONES darlings!
I hope you are getting ready for a great weekend. Things are pretty cold where I live, but one thing that keeps us nice and warm are the BONES reruns on TNT. I remember a few years ago, I made it through all of ANGEL on TNT, and they used to run these promos for BONES eps for later that night, and I used to think…’you know, I really should go back and watch all of the seasons and write about them’…so thanks, TNT, you’re the best.
Last night’s episode (or one of them) was Man in the Mud, which is a special episode to me, because it’s the first episode I sort of watched as an honest to goodness BONES fan. I was excited about it for weeks, etc, etc. It’s also a special episode to me because we get one of my all time favorite Booth lines, “You can play the field and not…plow it.” Disclaimer: Punctuation does not fully convey the Boothiness in that sentence.
Nor would it convey Brennan’s reaction, “That was distasteful.”
Which brings me to another question…Is Brennan really the prude in some ways? Hahaha. I WILL discuss that one day. (I don’t think she is, but she sure does get annoyed whenever Booth seems to show interest in anyone at all!)
Or does it not come until later, like Man in the Outhouse?
Man in the Mud is the episode where Sweets asks B&B on a double date/non observation with his girfriend at the time, April. She seemed sort of crazy then, but at the moment, she seems like amazingness. Haha.
But April dumps him (they’re not blue fish!), and Booth and Brennan sort of console him and lie to him to make him feel better and invite him to the bowling
rink…alley. (Also one of my favorite B&B moments ever).
There was also some discussion the other night at the Bonesology FF book club about whether or not Sweets imprinted onto Booth, Brennan or both. Some seemed to suggest it was Brennan, and Booth sort of went along with it because he’s all about her. Others think it was Booth all the way. Or maybe it’s the ‘both’ part of them he’s so connected to.
What do you think? Let’s discuss!
Peace, Love & Bones
