  • I actually loved it.

    YES- The episode did break my heart. But what do you expect? They need to leave us on a cliffhanger for Season 9. And, if you've been reading the spoilers, Pelant causes the show to have a lot of interesting storylines this season. So don't give up so soon. I haven't, and never will.
  • The worst episode ever.

    1.0
    The episodes with Palant should be a reason of canceling this show. Waste of time. The worst episode ever.
  • What a Miss

    1.0
    Delighted I missed this episode judging by the reviews. I put the box on to record this episode but something must have happened as it did not record. Don't think I would have been able to handle that ending. Love this program and the way Bones is so sure of herself.
  • Someone please just shoot Pelant in the head. With a shotgun. Multiple times.

    I can't agree more with the review by Ariella and some of the others below. The finale episode of this season should have been the end of Pelant, he's been dragged on FAR too long. After getting shot in the face by Booth and being able to drive away in a blood splattered car without any kind of detection earlier, his exploits are now beginning to make Tony Stark look like a teenage geek in a Halloween costume. I love this show, more then I love the original CSI, and that REALLY is saying something. As other reviews have said, the Pelant story line has just turned into something out of Supernatural written by a writer from Marvel!? This is not a comic book story! If it was I could except it. If they had used the final episode or two to have finally finished off Pelant (as I'm sure most of us would have wanted) I would have been very happy. However, the final 'twist' in Pelant surviving and screwing with Booth and Bones, I'm sorry, but whoever came up with that idea just took a steaming great dump on the entire history and all 8 seasons of Bones. I love the show and always will, but up until halfway through the final episode my happiness/enjoyment levels for the season were over a 9, but in the space of 20 minutes, purely on the way they handled Pelant and the utter ridiculousness of the "don't marry her", my face plummeted and I was left with just outright anger on how they screwed in up! The only way I see this being recovered is to finally catch and kill the bastard off in the first 2-3 episodes of next season! Having to sit through season 9 with a sour backdrop and tension of Bones resenting Booth over the 'rejection' will ruin what should otherwise been another undoubtably brilliant season.



    The episode as a whole deserved a 9 or 10, but due to the MONUMENTAL screw up in Pelant (or Tony Stark if he's already changed his name) sill being alive and the pathetic "you won't marry her", this episode can't receive more than a 2.moreless
  • Noooo.

    Oh man I can't believe that pelaunt made booth take back brennan's proposal, that's so sad.

    But at least none of the main cast members were killed so far. I wonder what next season will be like. I hope they catch pelaunt soon and just kill the sh*t out of him lol.

    • Angela: (about the proposal) Yeah, wait a minute, why now? What happened? And this is crazy and great.
      Brennan: I used simple evidence-based logic. When I thought about living with Booth for the rest of my life, my phenylethylamine and ghrelin levels were clearly elevated, but--
      Cam: You could just say it felt right.
      Brennan: It did. It does. It's clearly irrational, but I feel I could never find a better man to spend my life with. And I'm--
      Angela: Happy.
      Brennan: (chuckles) And I thought that should be recorded for the world to know.

    • Booth: Okay, look, I'm gonna be fine.
      Brennan: I know. I mean, I don't know, and neither of us know. We hope. I mean, I could be the target, or you could die of a heart attack, or I could get hit by a bus.
      Booth: Okay, just slow down for a second. Just, will you just slow down.
      Brennan: The point is, I want to marry you. Will you marry me, Booth?
      Booth: Are you serious?
      Brennan: Yes. I've been afraid, I've been stubborn, and I've been in love. And marriage would make you so happy.
      Booth: Are you sure? You're not just saying this because of Pelant and everything that's going on here?
      Brennan: Positive. All this just made me see things more clearly. I love you. I want you to be my husband. I want to- I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Say something.
      Booth: Yes. Of course. Yes.

    • Brennan: I just know that men are dying. Men like you.
      Booth: I am not going to die. Understand? Sweets says that Pelant sees this as a game. That is why he called me.
      Brennan: He called to say that the rules were changing.
      Booth: Yeah, okay. If I'm gone and you're gone, then the game is over. We have to focus on winning. Okay, look. He's just trying to throw us off? W-We're smarter than he is. Well, you're smarter. Look, you're the smartest person in the world. Ever. I mean, since the beginning of time.
      Brennan: Stop.
      Booth: It's true. Oh, except for that one guy. Uh, Gary from old-time Greece. (chuckles) He was smarter than you.
      Brennan: (after kissing him) You are not allowed to die. Do you understand?
      Booth: Yeah. I understand.
      Brennan: Good.

    • Booth: What do you want this time?
      Pelant: You, uh, you crossed a line when you shot me, Agent Booth. I thought, I thought we were working so well together. I never did anything to hurt you guys.
      Booth: You think this is some kind of a game?
      Pelant: Of course. Now the rules have changed.
