A girl could get used to this double-dose of Bones every week! Because, let's face it, one night with Booth and Bones just isn't enough. Here's a look at this episode's Good, Bad and Ugly.
There seemed to be a bit more emotional growth on the part of Brennan. She all but admitted that her lack of close, intimate relationships has to do with her fear of abandonment because everyone she has loved has left her. She asked Booth and Det. Nakamura (not to be confused with Hiro Nakamura) about losing someone they loved. For Booth, it was the hypothetical scenario of losing his son. Her question -- Is it worth it? Those of us who have loved know that it is, and I think that both Booth and Det. Nakamura were able to get Bones thinking about what she's missing out on by protecting herself from hurt. I don't expect her to connect better with others, but I do think that she may be starting to get the whole "someone to come home to" concept.
Although it made for some interestingly awkward scenes, I thought that the speculation about Dr. Tanaka's gender was a perfect pick for this week's "BAD" category. Until Angela raised the question, I hadn't thought that gender was up in the air. I (mistakenly) thought Dr. Tanaka was a female, but in my defense, the actress playing the role is female. Anyway, it doesn't matter. I thought that this subplot was weak and a little over the top.
Alright, you guys can probably guess this one, but it's definitely the pimp's decision to put Det. Nakamura's sister's mask-covered head on a bamboo pole in the roommate's apartment. Now, that is something you DO NOT want to come home to!
