Hello and Happy Monday!
Here’s a question that certainly can apply to more than just this season one finale (sidenote: Woot for completing a season!), but since this episode deals strongly with Brennan and her family, I think it’s worth asking here: Is Brennan better off because of her family experiences?
Russ tells her that she turned her back on him (he called her every year on her birthday, but she never answered), and she made herself a new family. We have talked about that idea being a shock to Brennan (in the “I have people?” category), but I think he is correct.
Would Brennan be as successful as she is if her family had remained intact? I think it supposes a couple of things. If her parents had been criminals AND kept the family intact…I’m not sure. If they had remained out of trouble and remained intact…possible. Her parents were pretty encouraging, it seems, but it’s hard to say.
