(Edit: Why does wordpress hate me? Ugh. If you got the email and there was only one random moment, I apologize. Below is the full post)
I apologize in advance that this one will be sort of bare bones, but I do want to just list five moments from this episode that make me (to the lovely Owl’s criteria) laugh, cry, or think. Well, there’s not much crying, but still…
1. Brennan teaches a few things, but also learns about cankles. 🙂
2. Hodgins makes a move. I was looking at my 100Days post, and here is what I said about that.
I had forgotten this was the episode where Hodgins makes his move too, until Angela announces to everyone that childhood should be about swings. You know what comes of that, BONES fans. Of course, like all of our happy childhood memories of swinging in the park, they all crash and burn as we get dumped at our favorite diner, which, in my opinion, was still pretty unfair to the diner. What did it ever do to deserve that? I digress.
Haha. I have issues.
3. Hodgins figures out about Booth and Cam.
I love the moment when Angela figures it out and Hodgins is like “Bingo, baby”
4. The Case
It’s a good one, and the team works together to solve it. It is a harsh reality with the pageants and I can’t help feeling that if it was a case today, it would be done differently–and not in a good way.
5. Thai Food
I have to admit that when B&B say those two words in unison, I cringe. There are other people who love it, and there are people who cringe at the moments I love sometimes. It’s only those two words –in unison– that make me want to back away slowly. Everything else about the scene is nice or at least interesting.
But particularly interesting is the way Cam sort of knowingly looks on as Booth is with Brennan. Do you think, at that point, she is aware of Booth’s feelings for Brennan? It’s not a critique on her character or anything, at least not for me. I think, up to about Blizzard, maybe, I would have slept with Booth if he’d asked me, you know? (Side question: When was Booth officially off the market, in your opinion?)
I think Cam knows it’s just temporary, and she’s okay with that. I wouldn’t have seen it that way when season two aired the first time, but now in hindsight, I can see it.
Thoughts from you?
