Haha! Okay, first of all, good morning, but second of all– yesterday! Ha! The crazy thing is that I actually did that post twice even! I wrote it up on Sunday night, set a reminder to make it live yesterday morning, when I went to make it live, it wouldn’t post–there was nothing there. So I wrote it up again, published it again, closed the site and went on my way. It wasn’t until much later that I figured out the body of the post was as good as posting a picture of a polar bear in a snowstorm.
Here is a recap about what I talked about in yesterday’s post, which was basically the following:
1. I’ve been MIA, but in my defense, I’ve been reading The Hunger Games trilogy (still am, so please no spoilers)
2. Yesterday’s ‘tomorrow’s’ post (aka, today) is going to be about when I fell officially in love with Booth.
3. Booth sure does act certain ways when he feels like he is not in control of a situations (aka–when Rebecca lets her boyfriend spend time with Parker).
Okay then, on to today!
As I mentioned before, this is the episode where I officially fell in love with Booth. I certainly liked him before this episode. I was probably falling before this episode. I’m sure I had a big crush on him and liked his smile, and all of that. But…you know that moment where it just hits you? For me, my stomach sort of gives out and drops, it gets serious up in the house for a minute as I try to frantically figure out what I’m thinking, and then I realize it? Yes, that is what happened to me the first time I watched the end of this episode.
For me, attractive people grow less attractive if they are cruel or rude. Less than (the generally accepted view of) attractive people get a lot more attractive to me the kinder and more compassionate they are. That’s how it works for me. So of course on that scale, Julie Andrews is just…the hottest. Haha! And Atticus Finch. That’s about the standard right there. 😀 😀
And, of course, compassionate, good, sexy in a suit, Seeley Booth.
I really do love a LOT about this episode. The guest actors are very, very good, the case is interesting, it deals with a lot of Brennan’s past in foster care and the stigma she resents from it. It helps Booth and Brennan grow closer together. Brennan and Cam sort of work things out. And I LOVE the moment in the diner where the wife turns in the gun to Booth for killing her husband.
But there was just this moment…
Booth is doing his job, and he’s escorting Alex away, but he also just puts his hand on his shoulder in encouragement. Booth could have been a big jerk about it, but he just wasn’t. He’s a good person and he doesn’t abuse his power over people. I love that about him. I loved it then and now.
But what about you? Do you like this episode? Do you have a moment where you just fell in love with Booth (in any episode)?
