I love this episode. I know that not everyone does, and I respect that. I try not to let what happens in future episodes ruin how I feel about this episode (or any before it). It is not easy, and it definitely does happen. But I love the sweet and eager nature of B&B’s first interactions with one another. If the series had ended with this episode, they absolutely would have gotten together during that end scene at the FBI building. I think this episode was handled well, but the aftermath in future episodes was handled pretty badly (which is a discussion for future posts!). But that doesn’t mean this episode didn’t work, at least in my opinion.
I do think Sweets was totally out of line in suggesting that Booth should be a gambler (WTF?) especially in a professional context.
But I enjoyed the sort of revisionist history that we got. I thought it worked.
How about you? What do you like or not like about this one?
Here is your moment of B&B:
