    The writing in this episode and the characters did not flow. There were too many underlying story plots trying to be told. Stick to the basics . murder and bones) and stay away from trying to speak on social issues.
  • Not up to par.

    I really liked this episode. Mostly because the tension between Brennan and Booth felt realistic and so did their resolution. The mystery was boring but the character moments really sold me this episode.

    It used to be the eccentric behavior by Booth and Brennan that we loved about this show, but in this episode, seeing the two whining and complaining, that's what irritated me. Also, the marginalization of Hodgins as to simply a geek who gets oddly excited in the lab room continues to be an odd writing move.



    A rushed ending too. Just not what we expect from this show.

    I love me some vintage. Vintage cars, vintage clothes but apparently not some vintage Bones



    It's absolutely true, this felt like season 2 all over again...problem is, the writers have been teasing us with Bones actually evolving into a person with an ounce of social understanding. Hell, she even made a Wil E Coyote reference. She then proceeded to act like a petulant genius child with zero comprehension of social dynamics. In season 2, this was hilarious. In season 7, it's played out shtick



    I don't know if the writers are intentionally making Bones cringe worthy, but from the last couple episodes of last season to now, I'm finding her harder and harder to watch while my sympathy for the characters around her turns to apathy since their expectations of her should be near rock bottom. If it's intentional...kudos, you're doing a great job
  • Feels like vintage Bones

    Watching this episode was like taking a trip back to season 2 (only with B&B together). While I enjoyed the fluff of S7, it feels like Bones is returning to it's roots. And that is a very good thing. Also, loved the last scene, very in-character and masterfully done
