    A conspiracy in the FBI and other levels of government is not that far-fetched. Hoover was head of the FBI for a long time and we know that he did not do everything above board and legal. Recent scandals like the IRS is just a reminder that with power comes the temptation for abuse of that power. Delta Force operatives may be trained in rescue, but that training includes all manners of deadly force. And you have to remember that there is a conspiracy. That means that these operatives have either been blackmailed themselves or actually agree with the beliefs at the core of the conspiracy. DB did an awesome job directing and the action was heart bounding. If anyone thinks that Brennan seems weak now they did not see her wielding that shotgun like she had been doing it her whole life. It was pretty powerful.moreless

    Does anyone remember how Brennan used to be really strong and confident in tough situations? How about all the times she used her fighting skills in the past, kicking down bad guys or kept it cool in heated situations. This episode was not like her at all. I miss the old Brennan, the Angela that used clay and some small amount of technology, Caroline with balls and most of all the humor and awkwardness in the dialog.moreless

    Bones is the best show in the world next to Bonanza. I just hate how long we have to wait for the next one.

    Man I'm sorry, you come across as one very unhappy individual. It's TV, it's fiction - nothing is perfect, i can't name a TV drama out there that is 100% true to life. It's called entertainment and sometimes that means adding a little fluff here and there. Life's too short to take time picking apart episodes of a darn TV show like that. But having said that, you are totally entitled to yr opinion of course just as we are free to agree or disagree with it,



    My review is 10 out of 10 because I thought it was fantastic to FINALLY have the intense angst ridden action and unique villains back like the show used to be in the first 3-4 seasons. Before it became more comedy and fluff than drama and action. LOVE DB as Director & the awesome actor, great job! Though it ticks me off when they will & always do a dang time jump for Season premiere epi - one because that format has been done to death on Bones and on NCIS, two because we never get to see Booth struggle through recovering from injuries sustained in finale (RITR, Wannabe In The Weeds and The End in The Beginning).moreless
