Do you remember this?
I was thinking about it the other day (and the subsequent article), especially the part when the interviewer asked them which one would be on top, “They’re both alpha,” he (or she) said, regarding Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth.
ED and DB answered that it would be a compromise, or something like that. But it had me thinking this week…are B&B still both alpha, or have they been watered down to some sort of acceptance?
Is what we see now the broken down/lost the edge and grasping for one another B&B or is this the refined “No shiny baubles” mature and ‘all that alpha stuff was just a cover” B&B?
In other words, have B&B lost something good that makes them…them, -or-, are we seeing something more along the lines of Brennan’s season four birthday toast to Booth–that the quiet man (or woman), the one who cares for family and friends is the real alpha?
Namby Pamby or comfortable in their own skin with nothing really to prove?
Peace, Love & Bones,
