Hello! How did you like last night’s episode, The Warrior in the Wuss?
One thing I thought was interesting from the episode was all of the ‘stepmother’ talk, and the way Booth asked Brennan to talk to Parker with him—as a family. I hadn’t thought about it before, but I think I was surprised at how Brennan didn’t say she wasn’t Parker’s stepmother. Not that she doesn’t see them as a family, I thought that was sort of clear, but more that I didn’t see her as seeing herself (say that five times fast!) as a stepmother. Does that make sense? Thoughts?
I do like how having a house together has really smoothed a lot of the B&B issues away. I think they are both comfortable there, which says a lot.
There were other things that surprised me—Hodgins spending a ton of budget money on equipment (when he’s been more the MacGyver type in the past) but with no real reason too, and Sweets going off on Booth about taking him on cases just to ask for personal advice. With the Hodgins stuff, I didn’t feel like there was much of a resolution there—why did he want the stuff? And with Sweets, I am still curious too…
Of course, it’s hard to talk about foreshadowing when I also ban spoilers. I really don’t know anything much about the rest of this season (it airs on Mondays—that’s about all I know, haha), so maybe it’s a thing. But between the last episode and this one, there was a difference in the Booth and Sweets dynamic that makes me think something else will happen in the future. Of course, it could just be a result of episode order and ‘writing by committee’. Maybe last week’s writers think Sweets is annoying, and maybe this week’s writers want Sweets to man up a little—who knows?
Okay…enough from me. What do you think?
