One thing I love about BONES is that I’ve met people from literally all over the world. Of course, when I say ‘met’, I mean that we hang out online and such–I haven’t actually met any of you! So crazy! But the point is that it’s cool. We’re cool.
I had to smile when as soon as November arrived, people’s Facebook or Twitter statuses would indicate it. It’s November! was posted with more joy than is usually dedicated the month! At least, I think so! But yeah…it’s November…kinda exciting!
We’re ready for Season Five here at Premiere Week, and I’m *channeling Sweets* wicked pumped that HiaF fell on this week’s Top Five Tuesday. It is my all time favorite BONES premiere! There are many, many wonderful moments, and not just this…
There’s this eager ‘we’re almost on the same page’ vibe with B&B that hadn’t really happened before (or since) in those early season five days. There are too many moments to choose from, but I did manage to narrow it down to five. For now!
1. The Hug:
As so many of you have mentioned before, it’s fun that Brennan refuses a hug from Cam, is shocked into one by Hodgins (and doesn’t really respond), and then openly hugs Booth when she sees him (also after she sits on him, which is just…adorbs!). The subsequent scene, where Angela calls them out on not being so forthcoming about the fact that Brennan was pregnant in their little shared reality thingy is also awesome.
2. The Chat
I could use a little more Booth and Cam friendship moments (like the one in season six, also, where she comes to ask him for relationship advice). But this one is special, because Booth doesn’t deny that he is ‘in love with Dr. Brennan’, and Cam smiles happily.
Plus she calls him a ‘Sweet, kick-ass, FBI murder-solver with a hard fists and a lion heart’! Love it!
3. The Visit
Cyndi Lauper’s acoustic version of “Fearless” moved to the top of my list of fave ‘songs used in Bones eps’ with this episode, and the music is so haunting as Booth studies the newspaper clippings of his success with Brennan (though who in the heck took that photo of the two of them making fun of Sweets? I get annoyed by this stuff. Ignore me. haha). Then he goes to visit her, presumably around 2 AM or something, when she is digging around for clues. They are both so hesitant around one another–Booth because I think he’s considering telling her that he loves her, and Brennan, because she’s trying to make sure that he has fully recovered. He tells her he hates this part of their work, where she is working, and he’s just sitting around. She tells him she has something work-related for him. He immediately goes into work mode and leaves the area. Brennan asks him if he wants to get breakfast (which I also love, because the way she asks leads me to believe this is a common occurence), but he says no. She is confused by his actions. And Ms. Lauper keeps on singing 😀
4. The rescue
“I got you, baby!”
I’ve mentioned before how I was annoyed with Bones after the season four finale, and I spent that summer trying to just not think about it. I had not seen this episode before it aired in the US, and as I watched, and this scene happened, I totally gasped and hit the rewind (aka did that REALLY happen?) button. And it did! I love Brennan’s reaction in the scene, and Booth’s as well. It was like…instinctive, you know?
5. The realization
I know words like ‘eventually’ and all of that get overused in Bones-verse sometimes, but “dazzled” was immediately one of those words–the minute it was used to describe Brennan, and Booth’s feelings toward her.
Good call on the part of the writers to have this information come to Brennan via a psychic, someone she was less than eager to give credence to. And also well done to have it be that Booth was dazzled by the ‘truth’ of her–which is incredibly more meaningful than her work or her beauty, or any other standard Brennan might hold herself up against.
I love it.
But there are more great moments too…so feel free to add them in the comments!
Peace, Love & Bones,
PS…I hope you’re voting for your top Bones Episode Ending EVER! (Well, from these 16, that is!)
