Hello and Happy Friday!
One of these days I’ll actually have a question in the title of the MAQ posts 🙂
But anyway, I admit that when I saw the synopsis for this episode, and one of the previews, I dreaded it a little bit. I like Aubrey, and he is growing on me for sure. But to hear he also had issues with his dad made me think “Really? Another case of childhood trauma? Like, does anyone work at the FBI who doesn’t have this?” haha. So I was glad when it was financial fraud and abandonment (nothing to laugh at) and not necessarily physical abuse (like Booth and Sweets experienced), because I think it was a nice fresh take, and it allowed Brennan to be the one to help Aubrey a lot (all orchestrated by Booth, which was also nice).
Do you think Aubrey’s dad issues will continue and/or will B&B be able to help him?
PS… I started a little side tumblr project, called This Day in Bones History, with posts on the calendar dates on which episodes first aired. It has been very fun to look down memory lane and find some cool coincidences (especially due to the show switching nights so often). For example:
1. No episodes have aired in June or July, and only one has aired in August: The Titan on the Track- 2006
2. Season finales for seasons 3, 6, and 9 all aired on May 19th (2008, 2011, 2014)
3. Most dates have 1 or two episodes, a few have three, but four episodes have aired on April 19th: Player Under Pressure, Predator in the Pool, The Finder, Nail in the Coffin
4. Yanks in the UK Parts 1 & 2 aired on the same date (September 3rd, 2008), but there have been two other dates that held Bones double features–and BOTH included B&B undercover:
Double Trouble in the Panhandle and Fire in the Ice also both aired on January 22nd, 2009
The Diamond in the Rough and The Archaeologist in the Cocoon both aired on January 14th, 2013 (Along with The X in the File).
Symmetry revs me up, it really does. So I have loved seeing all of these little coincidences. If you’re into that, come on over to Tumblr and check it out and follow (if you want of course!) . Also, if you’d like a copy of my spreadsheet of findings, just for your own interest, I’m happy to share. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll forward it along.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
