Hello and Happy Friday!
This episode is a memorable one for me. It marks the time when I pretty much gave up spoilers for good. I was so appalled that a cartoon, Stewie Griffin, was going to be a guest star. I’m not saying it was my favorite plot point ever, but the reality of how the show handled it was pretty good, and I realized I had definitely jumped to conclusions. I’m also not a fan of the season 4 finale (more on that next week), which sometimes sours me a little bit toward this episode, which isn’t necessarily fair.
Yes, I know.
The ‘Brennan wanting a baby’ storyline was somehow simultaneously in character and also completely out of nowhere. In the episodes leading up to this, there were conversations about family and relationships and all of that, but the way they executed this storyline…
…was kind of rushed, I guess. At this point, I was also annoyed that Booth having some sort of medical crisis was being used as merely a plot point. AND Brennan attributed Booth’s earlier hallucinations (of Luc Robitaille and Teddy Parker) as the same thing he was experiencing with Stewie, which sort of retroactively soured those respective moments from Fire in the Ice and Hero in the Hold). This was coming off of the way season 3 ended where the Booth got shot storyline lasted as long as it took for Brennan to bust into Booth’s bathroom basically! So I was not a fan of Booth basically experiencing trauma for Brennan’s personal/emotional character development/gain.
But I digress 🙂
I liked the case, and it was interesting to see how all of the characters responded to the idea of Brennan having Booth’s baby. And I do think the end scene is special.
Enough from me. What do you like or not like about this episode?
