  • hannah hasnt taken it well

    8.5
    i disagree with some comments about hannah taking it well about brennans feelings i think she only taakes booths confession well. just because she didnt rip brennans hair out doesnt mean shes fine i think the bar scene where shes almost forcnig brennan to move on isnt her being a good friend is her way of making sure she hhas nothing to worry about. i like hannah but she is way too nice. on a different not the part where cam bones and booth get the nasty shower was so funny and brennans reaction was classicmoreless
  • I understand why people have a problem with this episode, but I wanted to come to it's defense.

    What I was afraid they were going to do with Bones has come to pass. Seely's moved on, but Tempy has realized she's made a mistake. However, I don't feel as annoyed as I thought I would by it, because they've managed to keep their working relationship intact and because Booth's new lady-friend is actually an attractive, likeable, interesting person, who is VERY different from Brennan. It is possible to have a love triangle situation like this, where people remain civil and don't let jealousy take over. I've had a similar experience personally, so it's really not all that unrealistic. It wouldn't make sense, with Brennan's personality, for over-the-top jealousies to ensue, and Hannah seems like she has the confidence to handle the fact that Brennan has feelings for Booth. (I mean, come on! Who wouldn't?) It is totally possible for Booth to love Bones and love Hannah too. He just hasn't figured out who he loves more yet, but he will. Of course, we all want to see Booth and Brennan together, but I, for one, am glad that the writers chose to go in this direction, rather than make Booth's new love some kind of evil harpy. It makes for a situation that is a lot more emotionally complicated and less easily resolved, which, in my mind, makes for more interesting television.moreless
  • Great expectations..

    6.0
    Lead to great disappointments. We've been building this huge excitement around Bones' return mid season and then we have this episode. It was fairly good. But for a show that has brought us such amazing episodes, I have to say that this one surely didn't do it justice.

    The case was very easy to solve, not catching us and making us dread for it to be solved already. But what was most disappointing was the situation between Brennan, Booth and Hannah. How in the world would something like what Booth told Hannah just be resolved in talk in the middle of the street? Doesn't anybody on this show has blood running through their veins? Booth just acts like a total jerk most of the time now, Brennan is more than passive and Hannah is coming out like this unimaginable person, who likes everybody and is liked by everyone as well. It was just terrible.

    Well, but lesson learned. Let's not make a bid deal out of the sniper episode next week and then maybe we're in for something really good without the whole big disappointment afterwards.moreless
  • This episode is indicative of the show's downward spiral.

    6.0
    Once again we had a "snooze-worthy" case, involving a body found in a shower stall. We had to revisit the ongoing plotline about Brennan and Booth not loving each other anymore - which meant, of course, Hannah had to be involved. And watching the person chosen to be Brennan's assistant (Dr. Clark Edison) only made me yearn for the days when Zack was in the lab and the "squints" had chemistry with each other. The acting seems wooden these days - there is no energy of any sort. If I were viewing these characters for the first time, I know I would not become engaged. At least next week's episode brings back the gravedigger - maybe this will liven things up.moreless
  • Good episode.

    8.0
    Okay, may be i'm one of the few who likes this episode. I actually think it is better than most of the pre-Doctor In The Photo episodes. The case is definitely better this time. I couldn't care less about Hannah. However, i agree that the season's been pretty dull. I have always complained that the relationships have taken too much screen time since season 4. There seem to be no hope for that to change. And Brennan, choose your assistant already!! I hope the sniper kills these unnecessary squinterns, and bring back some old characters (Russ? Max? Why don't they ever visit Zack?) and create some more stories about them. Let's hope that the sniper storyline makes up for this season. Damn, i hate to bash this show :(moreless
