Welcome to Season 10, Bones fans and haters. I’m back for another season of unabashed snark and secret fan-girl-ing. My own week was full of Bones-style adventures – mystery human remains and an FBI agent! So join me in knocking back a couple dirty martinis while we hatelove on a new year of Bones.
|"I think I see some conspiracy in this corpse!"|
- I don't think that a fancy-CT-scanner-computer thing meets the Daubert standard for positive ID.
- Unclear why Hodgins saved two flat bones for a marrow study; why not a long bone that had lots of marrow?
- I know they're married, but can Brennan really take some of Booth's money and buy a house? He might want to get that retitled in both of their names when he has a minute. You know, protect themselves in case they get sued.
- Too many confusing parking garages in this episode.
- Why are Cooper's bones not being studied inside the fancy central ring that people have to swipe a card to get into? They seemed to be in a room off the front door.
- I guess Sweets' death is supposed to be unclear, because they're going to solve it later in the season? But that choice made his death seem capricious. At least Nigel-Murray was killed by a serial killer angling for Booth; that made a senseless murder make some narrative sense. Although I love John Francis Daley, his death didn't feel as unexpected or crappy as Nigel-Murray's did.
- Also, how did Booth and Brennan get to Sweets before the ambulance did? It's not like they were anywhere nearby.
- Carla Gallo is (was?) actually pregnant, which was pretty obvious from her face.
- Brennan on Booth's injuries: "You've clearly suffered trauma to your greater trochanter and sacrospinal ligaments." (Although I'm not sure how; I didn't see Booth getting his butt beaten.) "Your coracohumeral ligament is strained."
- "There's some logic behind the pseudoscience you practice." - Brennan to Sweets
