Bones Season 1-Episode 3

A Boy in a Tree

Booth, Brennan, and Zack go to a private school on the outskirts of the city where a body was found upon the grounds of.    Both Brennan and Zack know the latin on the sign but I like Booth’s response about it more.   The remains are up in a tree hung by a noose and fall to the ground seconds later, the headmaster and everyone else involved with the school want the body taken down as soon as possible with no regard for finding out what happened and why.     The boy had a Cochlear implant which is used for hearing when you are deaf and has a unique serial number for reasons just like this probably.

Booth keeps interrupting Brennan while she is trying to tell him that it might not be a suicide and after he gets off of the phone Booth demands knowing who is all at the school teachers, staff, and students.  Once again Agent Santana wants them to find out what really happened and he wants them to solve it now because a lot of important people want it shoved away as suicide.   They push Bones into a corner to declare that it is a homicide even though she doesn’t have enough evidence yet to say conclusively that it is.

Nester was supposed to be going with a friend to Nova Scotia and yet he ended up hanging from a tree.   Zack is still bothered by what he did right or wrong with Naomi and basically Hodgins suggests that he talk with Angela.  The psychologist is saying that Nester could have killed himself because he was depressed and lonely.    The school is very adamant that it was a suicide almost to the point that it appears as if they are hiding something and of course they are.     They introduce Sid and his restaurant officially in this episode but it goes away pretty quickly replaced by a diner which fits the show better.

Bones interviews the roommate and as I am watching this I remember what happened in this episode but I’ll keep watching so I can tell you exactly what is happening.   The roommate, Tucker lied for his friend and sent out an email so that he could help his friend cover his own lie.   Now it is possible for sure that Nester could have killed himself, the mother Ambassador Olivos comes and shows a video of her and Nester when the boy gets his implant for the first time to show to Bones that her son would not take his own life.

Booth tells Bones to stay there and she runs ahead of him and stops the guy and then Booth stops him a swell when he still doesn’t go down.   The man is security at the embassy to prove that someone could get in and kill her son.     They take a look Nester’s things and find a DVD that has something o it, namely Nester Olivios was with a girl.    The sextapes are common and the students swap them with one another all the time.    The girl’s name is  Camden and she has no idea that she was being video taped (or did she dun dun dun!)

There is a tape with Melody, Camden’s mother who is sleeping with Nester’s roommate Tucker and his parents are claiming that he was raped which he wasn’t, the point being that him and Nester both were going to blackmail the mother over the tape and Tucker still believes that Nester killed himself.      Brennan finds a way that the hyoid could be cracked by suicide and Booth is made because she says that it could be a suicide and he wants to believe still that it was murder but Bones still isn’t sure even though she doesn’t want to believe it is suicide.   If the facts point to it she has to go with the facts not with her gut.

There is a scene with Nester and Camden and Camden rolls her eyes for the camera knowing that she was being filmed the entire time it turns out.   Booth and Brennan both talk with Camden and Tucker again and it comes out that Camden and Tucker planed on Blackmailing the mother and also using Nester.   Camden believes that Nester committed suicide because she broke his heart.  In the end Booth and Bones say that she killed him and they have proof and it turns out that her and Tucker did it together, they killed Nester and made it look like a suicide.

At the close Hodgins gets a real meal that he doesn’t select himself.   Zack gets advice from Angela and she tells him to go to Naomi and tell her that he doesn’t know anything about love-making and she will teach him for sure.   Booth doesn’t like everyone else coming to his place but the are all there, at least for now they have a place with a regular patron.  I am still not sure why they got rid of Sid and his place as no one really explained it….it just went away after the first season.

We close on Booth getting his own access pass into the Jeffersonian.

Quotes:

“She said, ‘take a hint’ but when I asked, ‘what hint?’ Naomi said if she told me what hint, then it wouldn’t be a hint anymore-it would be a statement.”  -Zack really has trouble relating to the opposite sex in any form or capacity especially if he likes the girl.

“I’m going to need an evidence bag.”  Body falls to ground following head, “I’m going to need a bigger bag.”  -Bones.

“You have no idea how open my mind is.”  -Angela.

“So uh what part of this is mine did you not understand?” -Booth to Bones when she sits beside him.

Tidbits:

-Angela and Hodgins are both already enjoying being murder investigators and want new cases, this is why these characters stay together on the show they all love their work.

-I like how Booth doesn’t quite know Zack’s name and calls him Jack instead.

-“Don’t call me bones.”  It’s hard to say when exactly she stopped caring that he called her Bones.

Overall  A

This episode was a deeper one than the one before it, dealing with Booth and his problems with private school and also with the squints themselves.   Brennan also starts in this episode to learn how to relate to other people, to actually sympathize with them on some level though she is no where near where she is by season five.    The best episodes are the ones where the cases work with what is happening to the characters as well, the two working around one another and this is one of this episodes.   Enjoyable from beginning to end.

Bones Season 1-Episode 2

The Man in the SUV

An Arabian man with scars all over his face in an SUV drives crazy and as he parks his car explodes starting an all new episode of Bones.  The mystery is what was this man doing and why did he have these scars on his face.

A man named Masruk was in the SUV and he worked for the white house and was also a member of the Arab Friendship league.  The question is was he a terrorist or was someone else involved.    The wife of course is instant that it is not her husband and the brother has the same strange marks on his face though not as obvious, it all points to a clue about what is really going on.    The agent from Homeland security wants to know everything that is going on while they try to figure out what happened and who the man was.

Hamid apparently had Lupus, at least that is what they say.  Brennan will only work with Booth because she doesn’t know how to break to the wife and she also didn’t want to give it to Agent Gibson because she doesn’t entirely trust someone who she hasn’t worked with before.  Turns out that Masruk had a bomb planted under his car by someone else and he was set up by someone.   Was Masruk’s wife having an affair a lot of evidence was pointing that way for sure if you are one who can read humans and what they do and for what reasons.

Hamid Masruk’s brother Farid converted to christianity at some point when they came over to the Americas, and he knew that the wife was having an affair as well as the wife.  This is where we meet another man named Ali Ladjavardi, who was the one having an affair with the wife.     Homeland security planted Ali Ladjavardi into the Friendship league to find potential terrorists.   Thus Agent Santana takes the man away from questioning because he was working for them and he checks out as in he wouldn’t have done something like this.

The start of Hodgins and Zach working on re-building things and doing experiments is in this episode, and also their competition with one another regarding who is the king of the lab a recurring thing between the two of them over the course of the seasons of the show.  Angela goes and meets with Booth’s current girlfriend Tessa to size up the competition for Brennan.   I had forgotten during the first season that Angela was trying to get Booth and Bones together.    This was one of the first realizations that Booth and Bones belonged together but after five seasons they are still not together, perhaps in the following season we will see something.

The Masruk brothers were poisoned by Dioxin.   It turns out that they were slowly being poisoned.  Again we see the strange holograph machine that is only used in the first season of the show.   It’s a little unbelievable and I am glad that they dropped it once the show officially became a hit.    Bones is one tough woman and she will do what she has to do in order to get her answers especially if she’s sure that the person won’t say anything about her to someone else.    The wife is guilty as far as Booth can tell but there are a lot of holes in the theory.

The bomb was made in Woodley park and that leads to Farid who was making the bomb of course his brother found out that he was making it and Farid put the bomb under his brother’s car to kill him so that he could keep his.   It looks like Farid is going to blow up a peace conference.    Booth and Bones start looking for Farid and find him as they are up on the floor above him, Booth doesn’t want to fire until he see’s a face and Bones makes the man look so that Booth can shoot before he explodes the bomb and kills a bunch of innocent people.

Like all episodes of Bones this one ends with the afterwards, not just with the solving of the case.     Usually these moments involve Booth and Brennan sitting together talking about what happened.   Over the course of the show more of the main characters begin to come to these little after the case meetings though sometimes its still just Booth and Bones.    In the end Bones goes back to work as Booth goes back to his girlfriend who will be one of many over the course of the series.

Quotes:

“I think he likes you, if I were you I’d buy a ticket on that ride.” -Angela discussing Booth to Brennan.

“I think she’s having an affair….personally.” -Booth to Bones regarding Masruk’s wife

“You can always count on the dead.” -Bones

“Fanaticisim and Logic don’t go hand in hand.”  -Booth

Tidbits:

-the Flesh Eating beetles cleaning the bones is a pretty cool scene and is actually something that is done for real if one was trying to study the bones.

-Brennan doesn’t get out much and socialize in this season.

-Looking back at season one really makes you want Zach back on the show.

-Booth is dating a woman named Tessa who only lasts a few episodes.

-Bones knows the traditions of burials for muslims probably for a lot of other cultures as well, it would be a part of her job to know.

-I love that Angela is so curious about Booth’s life outside of work and she’s doing it because she believes that Brennan has a thing for Booth.

-Apparently beetles are sautéed in peanut oil in thailand…remind me not to go there for vacation!

Overall Rating:  B

One of the weaker episodes of the first season, though it was interesting and it did help cement the characters more the episode ultimately was a little too heavy on Terrorists and a little predictable as well, and one thing was off why did Hamid have Dixon poisoning if he wasn’t involved in the making of the bombs, he didn’t live with his brother after all!!   Oh well, over all a good episode.

Bones Season 5-Episode 22

The Beginning in the End

(Season 5 Finale)

A boy is jumping on a bed and it’s snowing, although it’s not good snow at all and then the ceiling collapses and there is a dead body on top of it all as well.   Turns out the man up in the apartment above was a hoarder and they’re going to try to figure out what happened to him.   Bones meanwhile is fascinated with a dig site in another country about ancient bones and its pretty obvious that she wants to go over there and see whats going on.   We all know from last week that she is getting tired of murder after what happened with the Gravedigger case.

Ah Sweet’s fiancée is back this week, Daisy.  I like Daisy she’s so chipper most of the time and does her job really well also.  She’s also been accepted to go to the Maluku Islands which is somewhere that Bones herself wanted to go and she is really depressed now that Daisy is going where she’s not going and she’s always wanted to go.

Its becoming obvious right away that Brennan wants to go to the islands and study the history of humanity.  Meanwhile turns out that the Rangers want Booth to come back and train men for his country.   I could have sworn that working in the FBI was working for your country?   Sweets actually goes out in the field again to see the apartment in person and figure out why the man might have been killed.   Angela’s father shows up this week as well, which I love because her father is one of the members of ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons himself!

It’s becoming obvious that both Booth and Bones are going to be moving on by the end of this episode, perhaps to a different direction for the following season, either that or time off during the summer break.    It’s also obvious that Brennan wants to go to the Maluku islands and I think perhaps that Booth wants to work for the military training others to take down insurgents.    This episode is not about the murder that much, its more about what is going on with Booth and Bones and their feelings of wanting to do something else.

Booth spends time with Conner, I like Conner he’s aware of things now, more grown up which isn’t surprising when you’ve seen five season of the show.   Daisy is trying to convince Sweets who is her fiancée to go with her to the islands, I’m not sure how he’s going to feel about it, or even if he’s going to go, it’s for a full year.    Is Bones going to pick up a year after this season next season?

Billy Gibbons has come to ask Hodgins for a favor.   Turns out that Tim the man who died was an accountant who started becoming a hoarder and was also agoraphobic as well and he was offered 50 thousand dollars for something and Brennan discovered that the man starved to death after he was hacked up.   Brennan was also offered to head up the Maluku dig.     Sweeets agrees to help Hodgins get Billy Gibbons car back because he’s “Mr. Adventure” he’s already thinking about going to Maluku.

THey use a modeling program from Angela to help determine what in the house was changed before the collapse.  Bones and Booth go and talk with one another.  Both agree that they are going to go do what they need to do, for bones that is going to Maluku and for Booth its going back to the army to help train troops in Afghanistan.  It’s obvious that Caroline doesn’t want either Booth or Bones to go but she’s not going to try to stop them.

Hodgins and Sweets go to get the car, this has to be one of the funniest sequences ever filmed for the series.  Especially when Sweets starts meowing at the dogs.   Then Hodgins gets in the car with Gibbons and they drive away in the car which I loved, that was a great sequence of light funny stuff compared to the rest of the episode dealing with Bones and Booth both going off to do other things beside working for the FBI and Jeffersonian.    If this was the final season it would be a horrible series finale but as a season finale its a good one.

In the end Elaine killed Tim on accident and Hodgins and Angela decide to go to Paris for a year.   This summer is going to be painful.  Daisy and Sweets basically break up and Camille says goodbye to Bones which I hope doesn’t mean that she’s leaving the show or something, but a year is a long time and they are playing it like they are going to be gone for a year.

Quotes:

“Maybe we all value things that are essintially worthless.”  -Bones

“(shrieks) That wasn’t a scream. That was a yelp. It’s pefectly understandable.   This is a…crime scene, so technically no one should be here.”  -Hodgins to Gibbons when he appears out of nowhere.

“I’m so turned on by her brain I’d like to see her brain naked.”  “that’s so disturbing.” -Hodgins and Sweets.

“Mr Adventure is here ready to kick some biker ass.”  “Please don’t explain.”  -Sweets and Camille

Tidbits:

Brennan wants to take a step back and examine her life, take a rest, and she has a feeling that Booth does as well…I’m seeing season finale cliff-hanger here!

-they are breaking bones and Booth apart for a year after all over the summer break, this is good for change and it might help the show with something next season..but its going to make waiting a whole summer break hard to weather..good thing I’ve got reviews to write!

-The look between Booth and Bones at the end of the episode was wonderful.

Overall: B+

Not one of the best episodes of the season  but it does leave a lot open for what can happen in the next season of the show.   Will Daisy be back? Will Booth and Bones be able to reconnect with one another?  How do these people still have jobs??!!! LOL just kidding on that last part.   Keep up dated with me on the first four seasons of the show….I’ll be reviewing them and the first 20 episodes of season 5 as well over the summer!

Bones Season 1-Episode 1

Pilot

-Let me get this out of the way first off, Bones is my favorite show hands down on television now that Lost is finished. I love the interaction between Bones and Booth-

The Pilot episode of Bones is like most pilot episodes, it’s designed to introduce you to the characters of the show, and this one does that really well, starting with Angela, whom I loved from the first moment that i saw her, when she whips her shirt apart and flashes her under garments in order to get the guy behind the counter’s attention, and then of course we meet Temperance (Bones) Brennan herself.   Immediately Brennan is introduced as someone who doesn’t take anything from anyone, including a guy from homeland security.

She is held for illegally transporting human remains, and this is how we meet Special Agent Seeley Booth.   The casting is spot on with this Bones is played by Emily Deschanel who is cute just like her sister and also Agent Booth is played by Dvaid Boreanaz who was the best thing in Buffy and Angel.   It turns out that Booth and Bones already have a history with one another, and it shows in how they talk to one another, apparently in the past Bones never got full participation and she always wanted it and now she’s going to get it before she will work with Booth again.

We meet Zack Addy at the site, who is Brennan’s assistant.  I love Zack, he is one of those guys who is so smart he is just out of touch with the world around him.   It’s been awhile since I’ve seen the show,but even in this first episode the characters were well established, it felt as if Bones and Booth had a history with one another, it felt as if their characters breathed in the real world and we were going to discover how they worked as the series went along.     Over the years the music has changed, gotten less shocking but the cases have gotten better.  The first episode deals with a young woman who was weighted down and was a tennis player which Bones can tell by the wear on her wrist.

We meet Jack Hodgins next, who is the scientist that is also the bug guy who helps determine death.   Hodgins is also a conspiracy nut which I love, he believes in conspiracy and sometimes this leads to some hilarious stuff later in the seasons.    Have I bothered to mention yet that Emily Deschanel is beautiful??  OKay I won’t mention it again in this episode review!

Bones wakes up in her house and is ready to defend herself within a matter of seconds, but it turns out to be an ex-boyfriend named Peter who was coming to get his television which is when we finally learn that Temperance Brennan was adopted.    We see Angela’s computer program which thankfully in later episodes even of the first season this machine gets changed to look more realistic and Angela does stuff more with drawing things and this is better than the first episodes representation which was a little too scifi-ish.

Turns out the girl in the water was a girl who had an affair with a senator.  Her name is Cleo and she was murdered so the only question is who killed her and why?    There are two possible people who could have killed her, the senator and his assistant who was her boyfriend, and then there is the strange stalker guy as well who is possible.   I like that Booth wants to tell the parents before telling anyone else, or even questioning the three guys that might be responsible.    I like how Bones always tries to analyze things to the people they are talking to and Booth is always the sensitive one.

It turns out that Cleo was pregnant with a baby the only question is was it the Senator’s baby or someone else’s?  Hodgins is convinced that the investigation is going to end because the senator has so much clout that he’s going to get it covered up, Hodgins is usually wrong about these cover up things.  We also learn that Bones and Angela are best friends and they know one another really well, though they probably hadn’t been friends for very long before this episode began since Brennan seems to have a problem opening up to people and really showing her true side.

I love how Bones takes the gum from the trash canister that the Senator throws the gum into.  She went to the senator all on her own to get the DNA.  It funny that the FBI doesn’t want Brennan out in the field after this and well she ends up out in the field for the next five plus seasons of the show!   Brennan and Booth go to see the stalker to find out if he might be the one who killed Cleo.   Turns out the stalker claims to be Cleo’s friend and that he loved her and never would hurt her.  He comes off as less than authentic.

Bones points out to Booth that he’s afraid of the senator and that he doesn’t believe the man is capable of murder, she basically challenges him to prove to her that he’s a man and a cop and that he’s not afraid.    Booth got a warrant to search the senator’s place and wants to bring Bones with him, I think because he believes she can do the job.    They found the hammer but no crime scene and no physical evidence.   Bones figures out something and runs off to Ken Thompson’s place without Booth to stop him from destroying evidence and she even breaks into his house to stop him.     She pulls a gun and even shoots him, which leads to the conclusion where Bones finally figures out why he did what he did though not the reason why he did it.

Both Bones and Booth tell one another at least one small truth about the other.  In the end Booth wants to catch bad guys to make up for what he did as a sniper and Bones wants to help because of her own reasons.    It’s a great beginning to the first season of Bones.

Quotes:

“Look I’m sorry if I embarrassed you in front of your friends, but next time you should identify yourself before attacking me.”  -That’s Bones all the way.

“If you drive one more block I’m screaming kidnapped out of the window.”  -Bones to Booth

“Is it paranoia that Monica Lewinsky was a KGB trained sex agent mole?” -Hodgins always good for a laugh

“You expect me to declare war on a United States senator..based on your little holographic crystal ball?” -This is one of the reasons why I think the hologram thing went away it didn’t seem real.

“Stalk me Oliver and I will kick your ass!” -Brennan

Tidbits:

WE learn that Booth and Bones have a history with one another, we won’t learn till season 5 just how this relationship really stated.

-Bones History:  both parents disappeared when she was 15, and her brother abandoned her as well.

-Booth was a Ranger Sniper for the military and is now a FBI Agent.

-Instant even in the first episode…attraction between Bones and Booth.

-Wow you can tell that scene at the end at the funeral is on a blue/green screen.

Bones Season 5-Ep 21

The Boy with the Answer

Tonight’s episode of Bones deals with the Gravedigger from season 2 and season 4 who was a serial killer that ended up being US Attorney Heather Taffet just in-case anyone reading this review needs a refresher on what happened in seasons two and four….and now onto the new episode regarding the Gravedigger…

Brennan has a pretty creepy dream sequence to start the new episode which even includes her being buried alive by the Gravedigger I have to say this is a really good opening sequence to the show.    In case we all forgot they remind us that Booth, Brennan and Hodgins all were taken by the Gravedigger.  Season 2 was great due to the gravedigger and it wasn’t even resolved until season 4 which was wonderful as well.

At the beginning most of the evidence against Taffet is thrown out by the judge because the warrant that got it was obtained illegally.   Taffet challanges Brennan right before the break to find some evidence that was hidden, something she missed while they were studying the original case.    The most surprising thing about the Gravedigger was that she was a female instead of a male, very few serial killers are females, they are less likely to kill in a pre-meditated way, just in case you wanted to know some interesting facts about serial killers.

Hodgins and Brennan are both still suffering from dreams of what the Gravedigger did to them.   WE also get conformation that Hodgins and Angela are married but they haven’t told anyone yet as Brennan and Booth continue to look into the whole thing about the numbers that Taffet spoke to Brennan about.    Bones is also afraid that having relationships is taking away her edge, making her less effective.   I am pretty sure that Booth would agree with me, having friends and being close with them makes her stronger.    Taffet used a phone number as a GPS location to where the grave of the ten year old boy she was seeking the ransom on…she led them there the only question remaing of course is why?

Bones convinces Hodgins that they have to drop the charges in order to move forwards on the case of the boy that Taffet killed.   Booth of course agrees and is looking into other avenues to find out how she got the boy.   Brennan reveals her dreams to Booth and its become obvious this season more so than any other that the two of them are more than friends but Brennan is still not ready to release her feelings for him or believe in love.    Taffet meanwhile drills Boothe on what was the likelihood that the number would have been put in her file…by someone else..this is a no brainer it was a phone-call record, how could it have been accidently placed in the file and also lead to the boy.

Max tries to kill Taffet but Boothe stops him and the two of them have it out.   Booth of course tells Brennan what happened and of course Boothe put Max into jail.    Booth’s comment on how preteen boys would bite if they were fighting lead Brennan to trying to find tissue of Taffet left behind in the boy’s molars.    Angela’s deconstruction of the voice is a good one but it’s not enough because Taffet was expecting it and had already worked another demonstration out.   THe truth of voice modulation is that it can be manipulated to sound like anyone if you know how to make it do that.   In the end I knew Angela’s testimony wasn’t going to be enough, they NEED Brennan to find something and time is starting to run out.

Brennan again doesn’t start showing any emotion or showing anything but when Taffet tries to interrupt Brennan shoots back and continues to reveal what she knows.    Bones even speaks about being buried alive and Taffet comes back with questions about this to Taffet.  She gets her good with the fbi psychologist….but this is where they mess up in how Lawyers and Judges and court rooms work.  The Prosecutor is ALLOWED to do follow-up questions after the Defendant questions…but regardless Hodgins finds a dust mite that has DNA evidence of Taffet.     It all comes down to rather or not the Jury decides to believe the Jeffersonian or Taffet and also believe on what is right and what is wrong.

I can see what’s going to happen with Bones already, she’s growing tired of the whole catching killers thing which had to happen eventually, I would not be shocked if she decides to quit doing it in the season finale in order to add some kind of a cliffhanger for the final episode of the season, its been coming for a while.    Caroline Julian and Taffet both give good closing speeches in the episode, but Taffet’s is a better closer and I can tell that the Jury perhaps believes her more than Julian.    While they wait for the verdict Hodgins and Angela reveal that they are married.

Taffet was found guilty as the Gravedigger, and we all know that she really is the Gravedigger, we have great proof in the way she acts but also in the facts that were revealed in the season four episode.   In the end Taffet will pay for her crimes…but I don’t think its the last we’re going to hear of her.

Next week is the season Finale and it looks like we’ll get the answer finally on rather or not Bones is going to leave the Jeffersonian and her uh show…yeah she’s not leaving the show is named after her!  Although they might flirt a little with it in the following season, we’ll find out next week!

Quotes:

“If I loose, I’ll send everyone a note of apology.”  -Caroline Julian

“That assumes a just world.”  -Sweets to Cam

“Hey Honey, I need you to bail me out.”  -Max to Brennan

“I don’t want you to kill for me.  By me a sweater like a regular dad.”  -Brennan right back to Max.   THese two were funny.

“Now your honor, I learned everything I need to know.”  -Caroline Julian..hmm she’s had some good lines this episode.

Tidbits:

Brennan is tired of fighting bad guys and dealing with them-this is what the season finale is going to be about.

-So when are we going to see Angela’s dad again….oh next week cool!

-Prediction for season six-Angela is going to get pregnant.

Bones Season 5-Ep. 20

The Witch in the Wardrobe

This week’s episode begins with a house fire and the discovery of a body within a wardrobe, which leads to the calling in of Bones and Boothe.   Angela and Hodgins both came to the investigation which isn’t a normal thing but it is a nice little change of pace, usually Angela doesn’t come out into the field…and as they investigate they find another body with red shoes on it, very Wizard of Oz like, could these women be witches?

So the woman under the house with the red shoes on (the wicked witch of the east) was killed by someone…and the second body, the one in the wardrobe was a witch who was tortured during the Salem Witch Trials era and probably buried somewhere and dug up.

Hodgins and Angela are still having issues with one another, you can  just by watching them talk with one another that their feelings for one another are starting to get in the way again.   I was always disappointed that they broke up and now it’s looking like they might be getting close to being together again.    I love that the cop  from the crime scene pulls them over when Hodgins messes with the Prius and crosses the double lines and he doesn’t take anything from either one of them.

The name of the dead woman under the house with the red shoes on was named Cheri Byrd and Booth brings in the brother to interview him and quickly it appears as if he might be a suspect because of their history with one another.  Then again Cheri appears to have changed in the past ten years..and changed her name to Zephyra.   Back at the lab Edison tries to do an experiment like Hodgins but it has mixed result and Hodgins and Angela are locked up in jail because of their incident with the Prius.

Booth interigates Mario Trivisonno, who claims that Cheri Byrd put a curse on him that caused him to lose all of his hair.    The clues that Edison uncovers for Bones show their need for Hodgins.   Sweets gives Bones and Booth more information about how witches work and also wiccans.   The sequence with Hodgins and Angela in the jail cell is wonderful, where he gives her a massage, you can kind of see the sexual tension between the two of them and of course just as that’s going on Cam shows up to get them and the evidence.

I loved…loved….loved the local cop in this episode, every time he talked I laughed.   Booth and Bones go out to the area where the witches-sorry Wiccans -are meeting so that they can speak with them and also so that they can observe them.

After the ceremony Booth and Bones meet with two witches, one named Rowan is played by Kate Vernon (Battlestar Galactica) and she lays out the fact that Cheri was into some bad things and doing bad things for some bad people so that is where Booth and Bones start looking.    Sweets is going a little over board on the Salem witches and his passion with witches and wicca in general.   Murry Huddler’s wife was wearing the same dress that they found at the burned down house and Murry Huddler hired Cheri Byrd to curse his ex-wife.

I love when Hodgins realizes that the bones are of a bat that was stuffed down the woman’s throat and Clark just shuts him off with the push of a button before he can say anything else.   Hodgins and Angela finally in this episode are getting some alone time together with one another, and it shows that the two of them are still so in love with one another and all that we (the fans) want is what happens here, the two of them kissing one another finally again but its interrupted of course by the arrival of the Judge.

Turns out that the Salem witch in Cheri’s wardrobe was an ancestor of Ember one of the coven members and they bring her in to talk with her about Cheri.  Turns out that the witches were performing a ritual with rye flour and it caused the entire coven to hallucinate because the rye flour can have LCD in it and they believed that Cheri was a demon.

I was surprised about what happened next with Hodgins and Angela shocked me….I couldn’t believe it I’ve wanted it for so long….so long and there they are getting married in a jail cell finally finally Hodgins and Angela are married and I cannot be more happy it feels as if finally something wonderful has happened.   If we can’t have Booth and Bones together at least we get Hodgins and Angela together!

The Brennan/Booth relationship is one very complex relationship, we all believe that they belong together and they also believe it but neither one of them can actually admit it to one another and next week we see more from the Grave Digger case which was one of the best cases from the last few years of the show…next week should be good!

Quotes:

“We aren’t in Kansas anymore.”  -Hodgins when they find a woman under a house with red shoes on which comes from Wizard of Oz.
