  • Absolutely brilliant ending!

    I really loved this episode for two reasons but then again it wasn't the best Bones I have ever saw.

    The two reasons I loved it where simple. The ending blew my mind - it was completely anti-climatic in a brilliantly creative way - I mean the ending itself, some people could of gotten annoyed at but it was nice to see that all evidence sometimes leads in a direction but it turns out one small over-looked piece of information is the key to the whole thing. It's also nice to know that sometimes shows like this that always follow one lead can get it wrong - and I think the moral in that was that not always every time has got some detailed plot behind it - sometimes it's simple everyday crime.

    The second reason was the simply stunning piano pieces in it and the musical aspect.

    The reason why this episode didn't get ten in my books was that it really dragged in certain areas. I mean sometimes I was wishing for it to hurry up and I'm not normally like that in Bones.
