Nothing like an awkward and emotional personal side story to distract me from the case of the week. In fact, I don't even remember too many of the details to this week's body in the meth lab outing. Nevertheless, let's revisit it together.
Bones's relationship with Booth's brother, but not for the reasons you're thinking. Clearly, I didn't want them together and was quite against it from the get-go. BUT, this relationship (if you even want to call it that considering they went out on one long, late-night date) brought out all sorts of things between Booth and Bones. At first, I thought they were going to need to spend the rest of their lives in counseling sessions with Sweets just to sort it all out, but they seemed to pull everything together at the end. I found myself once again thinking, "Boy, these two are blind! They can't even see what's right in front of their faces!" But, I digress. The best moment of the night, though, was Bones knocking "Booth Lite" off that bar stool! You go, girl!!
Bones's relationship with Booth's brother. No, I'm not going crazy and yes I realize that I also listed this as one of the "Goods" for the night, but as good as it was for the results it brought, it was equally bad because it had "ill-advised" written all over it. In fact, I was reminded of Cold Case's Vera warning Scotty that entering into a relationship with Lilly's sister was "ill-advised." It applies here as well and for all the same reasons. I also didn't like Booth being Booth and giving up the credit on that bust in order to save his trouble-ridden brother. I know he was only looking after his brother, but enough is enough. I was happy to see him finally cutting him loose at the end. "Booth Lite" needs to learn about actions and their consequences for once.
OK, I laughed when the state trooper cadets used tear gas to blow up a meth lab and a body was suddenly propelled through the air only to land on a parked police cruiser (and OK, I'm laughing now just recalling it), BUT this does NOT mean that it wasn't totally yuck. Therefore, yucky head on the windshield is the winner of the "Ugly" award this week.
