Good morning! Happy Finale Week!
Back in November of 2010, we held our own election here at Bones Theory: Rock the Vote: 2010. Six candidates for “Shipper-in-Chief were narrowed down to two, debates were held, and when all of the votes were tallied and the results were in, Angela was named B&B Shipper.
I was kind of shocked at the time, but I was okay with it. After all, the people had spoken via votes, and so that was that. It wasn’t that I don’t think she still wants B&B together, it’s more that I just wasn’t sure just how MUCH she cared. Every once in awhile, she might comment here and there, but she seemed, in the past couple of years, more concerned about her own personal life than the sheets-status between the two partners.
Then again, it’s not as if she had to devote her entire existence to getting Brennan with Booth, and perhaps she understood that it had to happen at its own pace, despite what we all wanted. Perhaps she saw from both of them that mentioning it too much would make them each skittish. Or perhaps she just figured that after all these years, one or both of them wasn’t interested.
Either way, now she knows something we don’t know…and I couldn’t help wondering: Does she deserve that honor?
It’s always possible that Angela knows exactly what WE know…that nothing else happened between B&B except for what we saw. Or it’s possible that Brennan was vague, and Angela knows just slightly more than we do. But I don’t think so.
I’m jealous of Angela, I guess! But at this point, I don’t mind her knowing–if there is something to know. Well, I should say, I mostly don’t mind her knowing. If someone gets to know, I want that someone to be me is what I’m saying 😀 . If that person is not me, I’m okay with it being Angela. I pretty much want to know one way or the other (though with Bones…there’s almost never one way or the other, haha! Lots of possibilities, I suppose!). I also am interested to find out what Booth’s reaction might be if he finds out that Brennan told Angela. Did Angela tell her Vice-Shipper (Hodgins)? Will Sweets be bummed?
I’m not trying to get into the “what’s between us is ours” debate again… but I do wonder how the scene might have played out differently if it had been Sweets checking in with Booth in his office, and then Booth just tells him, “Bones got into my bed last night.” At which point, any person who attempted to interrupt that convo would be shooed away Hodgins-style (except maybe Caroline. Sweets never quite manages to shoo her away, haha, right?) I guess I can see it going that way too. What if Booth had told Caroline, and Sweets tried to interrupt? What if Brennan had confided in Max, and Angela tried to interrupt and Max shooed her away?
Is it significant, I guess is my question, that it’s Angela who was chosen, of all of the characters?
Peace, Love & Bones,
