Hello and Happy Friday!
I know, I know… I should stick with English and not try mathematical equations, but I couldn’t help it. This is a question that is sort of swirling around in my mind, and it likely won’t be until season seven before we have answers (and please, let us get some answers!) on it. But, basically…did B&B have a one night stand? Perhaps that’s not the best phrase for it, as it seems crass. But…was one night all it took (so to speak), or have they been sleeping together since the night Brennan stayed at Booth’s apartment, and one of those instances is when Brennan got pregnant?
I was firmly on Team Didn’t, and I still sort of lean toward Team I Don’t Think They Did That Night But Maybe Another Night. But I could be swayed either way, which is where you come in.
Is it possible Booth and Brennan slept together before that night?
One last thing, and this is just my personal opinion. I’ve noticed in the fandom that there has been some speculation about the fact that Brennan might have a miscarriage—that it might make for a logical plot point to bring B&B closer together and ‘solve’ the issue of not really having a baby on the show, that sort of thing. No one here has been ‘eager’ about that or anything like that—it’s more just something I’ve seen here and there, other places, etc. I’m not explaining this well, but I guess my appeal is just this: let’s (all of us) make a point to not be flippant about a miscarriage storyline. A lot of us haven’t experienced the challenges B&B (and other characters) have faced: abandonment or abuse as a child or teenager, gambling addiction, service in a war, murder solving, victim counseling, etc. Some of us have, sure, but I think the idea of a miscarriage (besides being a bit spoilery) is a little more universal — a very real, non-fictional sadness that many, many, many, many people face. I don’t want to narrow that pain down to a fictional plot point.
Okay, off of my soapbox now!
