You guys know I love me some Sweets, especially when he's combined with Booth and Bones. As you can imagine, I LOVED their interaction this week. Here's a closer look a the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Pretty much anything having to do with Sweets as well as Booth and Bones's disagreement on whether or not to tell him about what they saw at the bridal store. Of course Booth and Bones being, well, Booth and Bones, they automatically assumed Daisy was engaged and cheating on her "fiance" with Sweets. Keeping with the whole "assuming makes an 'a$$' out of 'u' and 'me'" theme, they were wrong (as I figured -- notice I did not "assume") and Daisy was merely shopping for a dress for her cousin since she was out of town during the sale. Luckily for Sweets, Daisy is the forgiving kind who thinks that her boyfriend's jealousy is a term of endearment so no real harm was done. But, it did make for some great scenes between Booth and Bones and between Booth, Bones and Sweets. That scene at the Founding Fathers restaurant was worth tuning in for alone! Runner-up in this category -- Bones recognizing that her views on love and relationships are practical and scientific, but they aren't necessarily the path to happiness.
This is going to sound completely out of character for me and completely out of the spirit of the show, but I'm going to have to go with the series' repeated use of the "you two would make a great couple" theme. Sure, it's amusing that everyone can see it except Booth and Bones, but the point has been driven home a bit too much that it's beginning to feel like overkill. There were two, count them, two of these moments in this week's episode. The first one, with the plastic surgeon asking if he needed to be there while they worked out their "relationship issues," was hilarious. I LOVED it. The second one, with the bridal shop lady, was just too, how should I say this?, anvil-ous for me. Perhaps the writers are trying to lay some groundwork in these final episodes, but it's just feeling a bit heavy-handed to me.
The manner of death. First, she was deliberately mowed over and then, she was deliberately driven over and crushed so severely she had tire track-pattern bruising. That's some serious hate! Or in this case, hurt. Runner up in this category -- the victim. She was engaged and yet, she was still actively participating in the "Date or Hate" dating service. She was pretty vile.
