This episode has a lot of action in it, not just Booth in bed 😀
I’ll always think it’s cruel if this series ends and we’ve seen Booth and Brennan in bed with other people more than we see them together in bed. That’s a different story, and one that hopefully won’t be answered for a year or so. But I found this episode interesting this time around for a couple of different moments. One of those moments was this look on Booth’s face as Rebecca is walking away from him for presumably the last time.
It’s unrealistic, in my opinion, to think that the writers had the season six “You can love a lot of people in your life, but there’s always one you love the most” conversation in mind when season two was happening. But this scene with Booth and Rebecca, and then later Booth and Cam does play in to that theme. I’ve seen people say that Booth loves the one he’s with, and I can see that in some ways. I also think that Rebecca’s earlier conversation with Brennan about the fact that she (Rebecca) and Booth missed their moment–the moment that sparks–stuck with Brennan as important in some way.
Some argue that the end of season five is B&B missing their moment–that it could never be as good as it could have been. Sure, they are together now, but they missed their moment.
What do you think about that? It hasn’t been expressed on screen from either of them (that I recall), but do you think the writers set out to prove that these two COULD miss their moment and still get together?
Here is the B&B of the Day:
