Here’s a question to start out our week; is Brennan actually the center (as in “we’re the center, and the center must hold”)?
Beyond the “The show IS called “Bones” after all argument, and within the context of the actual characters, is Brennan the actual center around which the other characters ‘revolve’?
Does it just so happen that Booth revolves the closest to her? If they are all tethered to Brennan by some length; he’s just the tightest? Or is he an equal 1/2 of the center?
Does anyone else tether to Booth, or is that tethering an extension of the tether that exists to Brennan? Is the only reason that Booth ‘fell away’ from the center (in the season five finale) because Brennan had already stopped ‘holding’. Was his breakaway only a result of hers? Or was hers a result of something else he had done, making him still part of ‘the center’?
I’ve been thinking on this, and I’m curious for your thoughts.
Peace, Love & Bones,
