Bones Theory

Vintage Bones: The Beaver in the Otter


Good morning (or good afternoon)!

I like most of this episode, from the case to the Booth, Brennan and Sweets interactions, to the Jared & Booth stuff, to the end scene with Booth and Brennan.

(notable dislike: Arastoo is still using his fake accent)

Probably my favorite thing is that after Jared leaves the bar, Booth moves to another seat, and then Brennan just appears, because she’s been waiting in the wings so to speak for whatever happens next. 🙂 🙂 🙂


What do you like or not like from this episode?

In the meantime, here is your moment of B&B:

  1. This episode is kind of a roller coaster for me. Animal House parody – funny! College flashbacks – horrifying!
    Agreed on fake accent Aristoo – but “Dr. Brennan said to be especially nice to you when the science was difficult. ” HEE!
    Good car scene – frontal lobe the size of a raisin…these two have seriously good car conversations…Doctor in the Photo, Lynchpin convo, one about Brennan loving her dad. Sorry, I digress.

    🙂 Happy Thursday!

  2. Question about the accent…did they intent the fake accent storyline all along? Or did either the actor himself, or the writers, decide that they wanted to change it after they realized he was going to stay on as a rotating squintern? Because to me, it seems they wanted to make him a more traditional Muslim man, with accent and his devotion to his faith. It feels that over time, he’s become more “American”, with no accent, and entering into a serious relationship with Cam, is very nontraditional. Is there any interviews or facts floating out there about it? It just feels like Arastoo’s character has been written all over the place at times.

  3. This one was fresh in my mind last week (Thank you TNT) — the joy and laughing of the dine & dash… I was wholly bought in to the eventually, did not see 100/Hannah speedbumps coming. But in the end, that’s all they were, speedbumps.

  4. When I rewatch this episode I’m always amazed at how far Jaime Alexander has gone with her career and I love the scene with Professor Twardosh. I wish they’d done more with her. Booth playing the cool college frat jock is always amusing and Brennan actually worried about having a frontal lobe the size of a raisin even though she knows that it isn’t exactly true shows just how profound an influence Booth has on her. I, too, am so glad that Pej got rid of that phoney accent. It made him a caricature rather than a character.

  5. I enjoyed the dine & dash but didn’t really think that much of this episode. I enjoy the Jared-Booth interactions and wish there had been many more of them. Booth made good progress with Jared with Brennan’s help but never really made it all the way as far understanding Jared’s traumas and scars the way Brennan did with Russ. Booth did protect Jared but he couldn’t protect him from everything. That would have been impossible, which is why Jared is an alcoholic and why he is the way he is. Jared came a long way as far as we got to see. A lot was left undone with the Jared-Booth relationship, even with the Doctor/Ditch episode. With Brennan’s help when the chips were down, Jared did do the right thing. That’s something.
