This title is a little shoutout to all the ANGEL fans out there. And hopefully you get it, or I’ll feel really dumb. But I must first add my thanks to pal @ShepHerdsTV for recommending it (by way of Eventually…Now) to me when I told her I was doing Eventually Week. I knew she’d have creative ideas, and she did not disappoint!
She described how it might work to take a look at moments in the show that COULD have been eventuallys but might have ruined the ‘real’ eventually if they’d actually been the eventually. How about that, yeah? I LOVED the idea, but couldn’t actually come up with five!
I asked four of my oldest (as in I’ve known them longest (almost three YEARS!), not because we’re all 29 and 365/365ths at least!) BONES pals what eventuallys they think we HAVE seen and what they still WANT to see.
I’ll weigh in with my own, and then you all can weigh in with yours.
First, from Jen:
“Eventually, I want a morning after scene, and I think we have seen them both acknowledge their feelings to the other…just w/really crappy classic B&B timing.”
I completely agree! Maybe that’s what I meant yesterday when I asked if their confessions were them catching up to their own realities (aka…eventuallys)…not that they missed their moment necessarily. I also would love to see a morning after as well…as well as the ‘before’. Oh yeah.
“I think Brennan is finally ‘open enough to see it’…that’s an eventually we’ve seen. And I’d like to see B&B have an honest discussion about all the things they assume about each other…even if it’s painful”.
Ah, I hadn’t put two and two together…the “someone for everyone/open enough to see it” moment alongside of her acceptance of the universe. As for the conversation, I couldn’t agree more. I think B&B are honest with each other, but are they always honest ABOUT each other to each other? Not sure.
And now from Steph,
“I want to see B&B really try the romantic relationship, even if it doesn’t work out (NOT just have sex). And I think that even though she didn’t say it outright, one eventually we got was Brennan basically admitting that she loves Booth, which means Brennan knows and accepts that she was wrong about her feelings…and her ability to feel them.”
I agree! Of course, I know you and I know we’d both REALLY like to see their romantic relationship work out…but I agree that I still want them to give it a shot…an honest to goodness shot.
“One eventually we have seen is Brennan admitting her feelings. I always thought it would be when Booth was available though. But I like this better J AND it wasn’t just about her feelings for him, but how HUMAN she seemed in that moment. Finally!
I can’t think of an eventually I want to happen, probably because I accidentally came across spoilers the other day, so I lost my ability to dream ahead. Unless it’s Daisy getting run over by a steamroller. I can always envision that…”
Haha! I swear I didn’t pay Lauren to say that. Okay, I am going to cheat and do two. You can do as many as you want! Here are two of mine: things I want to see and then the things I think we have seen.
First of all…I would love to see Max back, and while yes, I’d love to see him have a heart to heart with Brennan, I’d also love for him to have another talk with Booth where he lays it on straight and just makes Booth feel good about himself.
I did already lay out a few things I want to see…a B&B baby being one, but another thing I want to see is more of this kind of thing.
I want sweetness between B&B. I love their struggles and their strength, but what I want for them is an ability to have all of that and still be sweet with one another. Their sweetness should be reserved for one another; that’s what I want.
What have we seen?
Besides things like Booth in fatigues (mmmmm, so good), we’ve seen Brennan admit to Booth (and Sweets…sort of stuck right in the middle there) that she imagined a life with him when she was in Maluku:
Is anyone able to watch that scene WITHOUT flinching like Booth and Sweets do? I know it’s coming, and I still can’t quite believe that she says it.
We’ve also seen (earlier in the series) that Brennan hosts the team (along with Max and ‘Maggie’ as Booth calls her (totally a Booth thing!), aka her ‘family’ for Christmas. I love that, and I think her role as the head of that ‘house’ (whether it’s the house of reason or a ‘family’) will be a defining point in this series.
Okay…enough from me. What say you? What eventuallys HAVE we seen? Does that make you feel good about the eventuallys to come? Let’s discuss!
Peace, Love & BONES
PS…I’m totally cheating…but here’s one more I want: The “Someday” Pops talked about, and Brennan telling Booth the truth and holding him afterward!
