Since this is my first entry, I’m just going to let you know, I’m writing as I watch, so my thoughts will come off a little unorganized. Cut me some slack I’m learning this blogging thing as I go. Anyway, onward with the show…
Looks like a bad start to this woman’s day, she has a body not only discovered on her construction site, but dropped on top of her.
A new character is introduced, Booth’s mom, and everything is all sappy and sentimental within the first five minutes. And he hasn’t seen the woman in 24 years and he gives her his address and tells her to go stay at his house while he’s out at work all day. I don’t know about ya’ll but even if she was my mother, after 24 years she may not be as trustworthy as I remember her and I don’t think I’d let her into my house alone so quickly. And later in the episode Booth sings the monkey song, its making me a little uncomfortable, hes way to hot to sing that goofy song.
Back at the construction site, Bones is nice enough to let everyone in on Booth’s personal business. And we discover the victim is a male stripper. In the lab we find the victim has a calf implant?!? WTF, who has even heard of that, let alone wants one. Of all the body parts people are unhappy with I never hear anyone complain about their calves not being thick enough. Well anyway that identifies the victim.
Does anyone else think Angela and Hodgins are way to sexual in the work place? I feel like they would be written up or something at any real company. On the same note, some of Bones observations/compliments? to her interns could easily be construed as sexual harassment, but at the same time if my boss said those to me I suppose I’d be flattered.
Ah, I thought it seemed like Booths mom was trying a little to hard to reconnect, and of course she wants something from him, “walk me down the aisle.” He doesn’t take that so well seeing as she abandoned him as a kid and has been raising her future husband’s kids.
In the case investigation we take a trip to an active strip gig? Sounds like something real cops would do, and predictably the woman mistake Booth for a second stripper and rip off some clothing, but lucky for us they at least get his pants off! I am surprised he let them get so far though since he is wearing his gun under his coat.
Moms attempt at making up comes off more as a guilt trip. I think she should have been a little bit more understanding about why he was mad about her raising other kids though, she could have come seen Him at some point in the last 24 years. Bones talks to Booth about his feelings and she does a surprising good job. Her understanding of other peoples feelings has improved dramatically since her character started living with Booth.
I feel a little disturbed knowing the stripper has bedbugs, I’d be pretty pissed finding out that I shoved my hand into the pants of a man with bedbugs.
The victim was killed for being a businessman or more correctly a legitimate conman.
So Booth does decide to forgive his mom and go see her wedding day and bring her down this aisle. And the episode has a nice sappy ending. Ooh and Bones catches the bouquet. Do I smell foreshadowing?
