Gooooooooood Morning, Bones fans! A quick shout out to your awesome selves for rocking BT here in the past 24 hours! I loved all of your ‘questions’ yesterday and the post ep chat inspired me to consider doing them in season seven!
We’re going to do TWO MAQs today. This one is a little more lighthearted, and the other one is a little more ‘realistic’, so to speak.
Here’s the link (not that you can’t just look about five inches to your right, haha, but still…)
But what I want to hear about here is “Where you were” when you watched the finale–specifically the ending perhaps, or this…
Ack! But you know how sometimes, there are moments in your life, and you’ll always remember where you were? I think I’ll always remember where I was when Booth smiled at Brennan on the side of the street, you know? And I KNOW that Adele singing “Make You Feel My Love” will always make me smile and nearly cry a bit.
Last night, I watched the finale at my parent’s house. When that happens, I sort of end up in the living room on my own–most of my family tolerates Bones at best, and since I have to watch the eps with my laptop on and pause the eps every minute or so to write what happens for my GMMR reviews, it would be annoying for the casual viewer…for sure.
So I was watching alone, getting into it, laughing and liking it mostly. And then my dad came in, and my sister, and they were sort of sitting in the back of the room. This is about ten minutes till the end of the episode on the DVR, so probably about 10 PM exactly in real time. My dad and sister were talking about something, and I just remember pausing the ep, saying “I don’t want to be rude, but will you please GO AWAY?!” haha!
They sort of laughed and apologized and whispered, and then my mom came in the room, and she was like “Do you know what happens?” and I said, “NO!” and she was like, “Oh, well, I”m going to watch you watch it.” And did. And my sister and dad are laughing, and I’m thinking, “GO AWAY!!!” and yes, I’m 31 years old, but it was like I was in middle school, and Bones was Growing Pains or something… 😀
So then, and you know, because you saw it…the ep was REALLY getting intense– the baby is about to be born, and all of that. And my dad says, “What’s with the blind thing?” So I have to explain THAT, and my sister asks if it’s going to be blind, and I say, “I DON’T KNOW!” and say that there was a promo for something no one expected, but since they’d talked about it in every ep, I didn’t think it would be the blind thing. They were asking me questions, and I’m thinking, “I don’t really have time to teach you BONES101 RIGHT NOW. Read the 100DaysofBones blog or something!”
Meanwhile my mom is laughing, because SHE watched the ep upstairs in her room in real time, so she’s sitting there, already brushing a tear away, and I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT IS NEXT.
So then, we’re all sort of trying to figure out what it is. My thought is twin blind babies (so bad), but my mom just laughs and says no. Then I tell everyone to just be quiet, and I push play, and it rolls through, and just before Brennan says “I’m pregnant”, I thought…oh man, and wrote “She’s pregnant” down. And sure enough! LOL!
So I’m sitting there in just SHOCK! My dad is sort of nodding and making a humming noise (He and I were both firmly on TeamDIDN’T!), and my sister is still laughing about the fact that my mom knew before me.
And I think I’ll always remember it, just like that!
So how about you?
Peace, Love & Bones,
