Last night's Bones was a 2fer, which means we'll look at each hour individually for this week's breakdown. Our favorite crime fighting duo went from under the big top to on ice through the course of the double feature. For a closer look, here's this week's breakdown:
THE GOODUNDER THE BIG TOP: Booth and Bones joining the circus and all of the hilarity that ensued pretty much wrote itself. And I'm not afraid to admit that I was on the edge of my seat during that knife routine! Booth was very impressive! Of course, the two of them pretending to be Russian was pretty hilarious as well.
ON ICE: Booth confronting a huge skeleton from his past (thanks to Sweets) roped me in right away. He had been struggling with his abusive father's problems with alcohol and whether or not the rage inside of his father lived inside of him as well. It was nice to see it come to a head here as he took some of it out on the ice and got a little inspiration from a hockey star. And of course, I loved the ice skating scene at the end with Booth and Bones. Too cute.
UNDER THE BIG TOP: The return of way-too-much-information intern. While I do find some of his anecdotes interesting, he takes too long to get to the point costing the team precious time when solving cases. And this one is completely superficial, but I wasn't a fan of Bones's circus wig.
ON ICE: Ice fishing in DC?? I live in the DC area and there is no way these two were ice fishing anywhere around here. I guess we were to assume that the lake where Booth's rival on the ice was found was somewhere other than the greater DC area. Still, it was a bit of a stretch for me. I also wasn't digging the FBI agent sent in to replace Booth (seeing as he was the prime suspect and all) nor was I liking the attraction between her and Booth.
UNDER THE BIG TOP: That ambulance-chaser stepfather whose constant need to sue led to the circus covering up the twins' accidental death and disposing of the remains on the Texas/Oklahoma border. And just for Booth, I'll throw the clowns into this category as well.
ON ICE: Pretty much all of the hockey scenes. There was more blood on that ice than a typical Bones murder scene! The one that stands out the most for me, though, has to be the face into the wall right in front of Bones and co. and the blood that ran down aforementioned wall during the rest of the scene. Yup, that one takes the cake.
