  • The case is only the backdrop to the long-overdue drama between Booth and Brennan.

    Looks like season 5 could be when romance is in the air, this episode cements the relationship.

    Sweets' word play game has a delightful outcome – Brennan wants a baby and for Booth to be the father! What would make Booth feel so much more comfortable if he could be a part of the baby's life, we already know what a wonderful father he is. He's a great choice, even if Booth and Brennan didn't feel strongly for each other. Given that he's her first (and only) choice, she really needs to look hard at why that is. Neither one of them has dated in several months, they should both think about that too.

    Booth having hallucinations is hilarious. Stu from Family Guy is always adorable and they are just some great scenes. Unfortunately, they are caused by a brain tumor. So sweet that he wants her in the theatre, that's how much he trusts her.

    As always, Hodgins' overly enthusiastic experiment goes awry, covering Cam with melon. I love Hodgins and his experiments are always great.

    A lovely and not overly heavy personal episode, which finally takes the next step in Booth & Brennan's blossoming romance.
