Well, it’s not Tuesday, but I thought I would do a little list of my favorite moments from season 8, and then, as always, the comments will be open for you to share yours!
So without further ado, let’s get to it. My favorite five S8 moments, in no particular order…..
1. The Method in the Madness: Admission, Cleansing, Celebration
This might end up being one of my all time series moments– I just loved, loved, loved it. I’m feeling a scene study possibly! I loved how Sweets wanted to be there, how Brennan was so confident and gorgeous, and Booth was just as confident NOT participating. And that he knew everything about it makes me think Brennan has performed that ceremony on him.
2. The Ghost in the Machine: the B&B POV.
I loved this episode, very, very much, because it gave us true one-on-one time as the audience with each character, and that was very special. And I loved seeing B&B in their home, at night, and their interactions. And it was special, the way each one resonated with the skull of the boy.
3. The Shot in the Dark: B&B 4 Life.
I love the little moment when he kisses her forehead, and I love the end scene, where they tease each other and kiss with happiness, but I really love the moment when she is being wheeled in for surgery, and he can’t quite let her go, despite her reassurances that she will be fine. I love the mirror to the Critic in the Cabernet there. So good.
I also love that this scene could be anywhere in the series. Not with kissing, of course, but the intensity of them is the connection they share and have always shared. Not to fanfic on you, but I’ve read before that idea of how B&B might have given into their attraction for one another because at the end of the day, nothing would change about how they felt about one another. There was too much to lose, and so much at stake, but that wasn’t going to change, whether they were together or not. Glad they are, but this ep reminds me of the intensity Booth feels for Brennan–and that’s nothing new.
4. The Patriot in Purgatory: The Squinterns Go America on Everybody’s A**
Sorry to refer to a crude allusion on this one (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, if you’re wondering)! There is so much good in this episode, and the writers and acting staff did a great job of keeping it just this side of cheesy. I loved the B&B interactions, but also enjoyed seeing the scenes between these guys here, and later when Arastoo goes off on Finn about religion. Well done, show.
5. The Party in the Pants– Alluring, Alluring…
I love this little conversation between them because, again, like earlier, this feels like a conversation they could have had at any point in their partnership. I love that Brennan tells him he has an alluring personality and an excellent physique, and that she confesses to doing a burlesque act with fans. Booth gets all tight in the collar about it and just wants to focus on the case and everything else. But I gotta believe that in private, he likes her little fan routine. Good times.
Okay, so that completes my list of 5. There are other moments I also enjoyed very much, but now it’s your turn. What were your favorite 5 (or more) moments from season 8? The comments are open, so sound off!
