This week, Booth took a few steps that made a pretty convincing argument that his intentions are genuine.
First, he noticed the changes that she has been making within herself. Her willingness to crack jokes (as bad as they may have been) and to call forensic evidence "crap" marked interesting points of growth for Brennan. She's loosening up, and in doing so, opening up. Second, he showed her what she means to him. She knew he was having a difficult time with his marksmanship. She knew that he was nervous about his upcoming evaluation, but she thought that he needed to practice more. But according to Gordon Gordon, Booth's frustration with not being able to be with Brennan caused him to have difficulty firing his gun (gotta love the innuendo!). So, on Gordon Gordon's advice, Booth asked Brennan to attend his evaluation as a favor and she did. With her looking on, he nailed the shots one after another. And the significance didn't seem lost on Brennan.
And now, here's this week's edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:
THE GOOD: GORDON GORDON!!! It was so wonderful to have him back. I love his interaction with Booth and with Brennan. He has an uncanny ability to bring out the truth in people -- even as a chef! His scenes with Sweets were fantabulous as well. Much love to Gordon Gordon.
THE BAD: Hodgins having to sift through all that "crap" from the sink hole. Just thinking about it is tedious!
THE UGLY: Booth in the wrestling ring. It wasn't pretty for anyone involved!
