I hope you are having a great Monday so far! It’s been awhile since I updated this series, and now it’s time for “A Kiss”.
I think my favorite all time B&B kiss is still technically the one she plants on his cheek in Knight/Grid, but this ‘first’ kiss is also very perfect.
Some people might argue that they are very naive at this time, but I’d prefer to call it happy and not-weighted down.
It’s sweet and hot at the same time, and I love the way their eyes alternatingly flutter open and shut. I think if they had slept together, it would have not been good. Okay, okay, it would have been *good*, but afterward would not have been good for them. I don’t see Booth not following her around and I don’t see Brennan wanting to get into it with him. Maybe they needed to have a fight so they could meet up again later on a purely professional level and sort of hem and haw themselves into the ‘partner zone’ as Nicole called it a few weeks back.
But all of that is not even a twinkling in their imagination in this moment, when they both (yes, not just Booth) know that they really, really, really like the other one. And in that moment, Brennan asks him why he thinks what they have is going somewhere, and Booth tells her that he thinks he’s going to kiss her. We’ve each probably got several other moments throughout the series where we think he wants to kiss her and she wants to kiss him, and it never really happens. But this time it did, and it only took us years to find out about it J
We talked last Thursday about whether or not ‘the chase’ is officially over—that is, that B&B are on the same page and while there will still be a lot of give and take, it’s not like it’s always been. If that’s true, do you think this kiss (and then Brennan gently pushing him away as he breathes out a ‘wow’ and smiles incredibly) is the beginning of that chase?
Thoughts? Either way, where does this kiss rank on your list of all time B&B lip locks?
Peace, Love & Bones,
