I think this is one of those episodes I didn’t really fully appreciate when I saw it for the first time. I know this has happened for me for a lot of BONES episodes–I was always anxiously wondering if each episode could be THE episode. You know, when B&B get together and all.
We talked the other day about that idea of ‘moments’ and when I look back at this episode now, I see a lot of value in it, especially in the end scene (which I would have previously been like “that’s it?”).
But I’m wondering this time around what you think about the Brennan and Hodgins scenes in this episode–and in the series in general. Like a lot of you, I’d like to know what Brennan wrote on her letter, but I don’t think it will ever be revealed. But beyond that, what sticks out to me, especially was the “Dr. Brennan, it’s been a privilege” scene
What draws Hodgins to working at the Jeffersonian? What do he and Brennan have in common, and in which ways are they different? Are there ways the show could do better at highlighting their similarities?
Thoughts? There is a lot to discuss here, and of course, you’re also allowed to discuss anything you like from this episode (ahem, Booth, fierce, flying down the hill).
