This episode aired as part of a series of episodes that aired very closely together…there were four new episodes that aired within 9 days of one another:
Cinderella in the Cardboard: April 15
Mayhem on a Cross: April 16
Double Death of the Dearly Departed: April 20
The Girl in the Mask: April 23
I can’t remember now, but I think the schedules got moved around because of a sporting event and also a presidential address maybe? It doesn’t really matter except that in the scheme of getting four episodes in a row, that this one was sort of…too peppy for my taste at the time was quickly glossed over because it was such a whirlwind of episodes.
When I see this episode now, I enjoy it a little bit more. I think it’s another one of those episodes where in the series, B&B seemed to be moving SOOO much closer together, and this one almost gave a little bit of whiplash because it didn’t *seem* like significant moments at the time.
But I think parts of the episode hold up pretty well, especially the end.
Here is your moment of B&B:
PS…did a scene study about 3 years ago, discussing this end scene and whether or not it was possible that Booth was telling the truth when he said that Brennan had said the best thing anyone has ever said about him. Here’s the link.
