So, how are things? How did you like this episode? I liked it a lot, and I just want to take a quick moment to remind everyone that Bones Theory is spoiler free. I know the promo for next week is a heart-stopper, but there are some people who don’t even watch them, so let’s keep the discussion today centered around “Sin in the Sisterhood”, okay?
Thanks a million!
I’d love to know your thoughts on this episode, and specifically, I want to talk about that car scene between B&B. Okay, yes, it was a Toyota plug, but like we talked about before ( Excuse Me, Your Avatar is Blocking My Prius ), at least Booth wasn’t driving and extolling Toyota as great as an American Federal employee, right? The thing is, though, the car-talk was not the only thing that was awkward about that scene.
At first, it seemed very sweet. Booth made Brennan laugh, and it was beautiful. He sort of called her on it, and she apologized, and that was B&B-esque, still sweet and kind of fun. And then Booth laughed, and they both laughed…and it was still fun.
And then it kept going. And going. I was thinking,”‘What the heck? Maybe, if we’re lucky, that ‘Toyota-sensing the car in front of you function’ will not work and you will crash…that would be better than all of this weird laughing going on”.
Haha. I honestly sort of wanted that to happen. Not that I want them to crash, but I really just wanted it to stop. Then…like a good theorist, I took a step back and re-examined it, and I realized it was exactly as it should be, or “it’s all good”, as Smurfs taught us on Monday.
There was this edginess to the scene, like neither Brennan nor Booth wanted to stop having fun with the other one. They kept callling themselves bad or terrible, but that was just to cover up the fact that they were really enjoying each other’s company. It was almost manic laughter from both of them, leading me to believe that they were both sort of surprised by how much they were feeling in that moment.
So..am I way off base? Or is it still true that they had to be bad to be good? Thoughts from you?
Peace, Love & Bones,
PS…here’s the link to my GMMR review, if you are so inclined. You should note that people mentioned next week’s ep in the comments there. So it’s not completely spoiler free!
