One thought on “Episode Reviews

  1. I have so many problems with the type of episode structure where one of the main characters is set up to be the villain (Booth) and the other (Brennan) to be the hero.

    Not only that but tearing down one key characteristic of Booth’s , his understanding of human nature , just to highlight Brennan’s evolution in a subplot.

    Does anyone for a hot minute think that Booth doesn’t understand grief or how grief affects people differently? That he hasn’t dealt with all walks of life and knows when people are in denial or need time to react? He has been dealing with this for years. Years before he met Brennan. He certainly doesn’t need to be shamed or undermined by his wife on this matter. And for what? We already know Brennan can relate to people.

    Then we have Booth, the victim of child abuse himself by his own father, who was going by the wrong information given to him by his wife, the squints and Sweets that this kid was a victim of child abuse and he was confronting the father on this, the father who is a viable suspect at this point, who shows no emotion, no respect to Booth as an FBI Agent, insults him: Booth was doing his job and somehow he’s in the wrong in Brennan’s eyes and a lot of fans too. WTF!!!!!

    Brennan doesn’t know this Doctor from Adam but all of sudden she has more understanding and compassion to a stranger than her own husband. Instead of taking a minute and trying to see where Booth is coming from how the case may be affecting him, she has the Doctors back, a stranger and someone she has no evidence on whether he is innocent or not . But just because he is a man of science that means he gets the benefit of the doubt . Even in the interrogation room she was out of line taking Doctor side over Booth’s, who at this point she didn’t know if he was the murderer or not but that doesn’t matter just undermine Booth at his job, in his domain. WTF!!! A previous time when she thought men of science couldn’t be capable of murder was in Season 3. And she was wrong. They did commit murder. But lets not use reason or logic enter this episode.

    Then at the end of the episode lets just ram it home even more that Booth is in the wrong and Brennan is right by having Booth say sorry and give a lame excuse to why he is upset. And not only that make Brennan be petty and actually take pleasure in knowing she was right and Booth was the big bad FBI Agent just doing his job. And then instead of having Brennan discuss what the root of the problem was with her and Booth’s approach to this case as a team, lets just have Brennan be more concerned with running of to make sure that doctor she hardly knows is alright. GEEESH!!

    This episode was more concerned with making sure that Brennan connected with a guest star than her actual husband…. If I didn’t know any better and except for the token B&B near end scene, I would of thought Brennan and Booth could hardly stand each other. And it wasn’t just big bad Booth being snippy, it was on Brennan too.
