“I just need time, that’s all. I just need time to kinda hang back and find that inner peace before I, you know, get back out there……you and me, and love. Happiness and life and fate…”
~Seeley Booth, Blackout in the Blizzard
First of all…that Father’s Day card. Guh! GUH! I had been doing strong…maybe a little eye watering here and there, but…just imagining the sweet and eager Booth we get glimpses of now as a small child, and his sweet and eager offerings…well, the show got me…that’s for sure. I’m not complaining. I like eps that make me cry. Like Owl’s great system of measurement, it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me think. Yay!
Last night’s ep, Male in the Mail, conjured up some resolution to the Blackout in the Blizzard episode, in terms of Booth finding out that his dad cared for him on certain levels, but I also thought it was interesting that Booth’s ‘peace’ was referred to again here. Booth has always had a few edges, and don’t mind me if that gets me kind of hot and bothered at times. But he also deserves good things, and don’t mind me if I like seeing him at peace with the troubles in his life 🙂
But here’s the question for today, and feel free to expand…could Booth have come to that peace of mind without Brennan? She pressed him to deal with his emotions and recognize them, so in my mind, I’m thinking…he could not have. He said he was at peace with things, in the SUV, but I was not convinced (nor Brennan, I don’t think, haha).
Okay, enough from me…what do you think? Let’s discuss!
Peace, Love & Bones,
