  • Season 6, not that bad at all?

    Very emotionally intense episode of Bones.

    It looks like the best episodes are being saved for the last part of the season. "The Signs in the Silence" is another uniquely structured episode that keeps you guessing until the end. The young actress who played the "deaf and uncommunicative" kid does a good job and is believable in her role. The case made Brennan and even Booth revisit their past, and forms a deeper connection between them i suppose. The BIG question: is this the start of an emotional build-up, that leads to their getting together in the next episodes? Fingers crossed. The last scene where the girl's parents arrive is very touching. Overall, it's a very satisfying episode. Good direction, and good music, without the forced jokes and less screen time for a squintern (writers take note). Oh and how can we forget Caroline! The best of the season? Well, the season hasn't ended yet. Looks like the positive Bones momentum won't stop until the finale as the promo for the next episode suggests. And i have a feeling the finale won't disappoint this time. More fingers crossed.
