Good Morning and Happy Post-New-BONES Day!
Brennan is all about evidence and with people telling her things directly and unequivocally. No colloquialisms, no turns of phrase. That being said, I used to think that Brennan always really needed to hear the words of evidence from Booth in how he felt about her – perhaps the direct words ” I love you”, “I will never leave you”, or “I don’t want you to change” or something along those lines . . . but now I’m suddenly thinking she no longer does, that she has all of the evidence that she needs and now it is Booth who needs the direct words from her. Using the closing lines of last night’s episode, he needs to hear Brennan say, “We make sense.” Last night’s episode (The Truth in the Myth) and perhaps the last episode (The Feet on the Beach) indicate that Booth is perhaps testing the waters in order for Brennan to spell it out to him just exactly how she feels.
Is Brennan secure with how things stand between she and Booth? Is Booth? Do they need more evidence to draw their conclusions? What words do they need to hear from each other?
