After 12 seasons, Bones is finally coming to an end in only 12 short episodes.
Each week I am going to be having a short chat about the most recent episode, starting with episode 2. But first, a short recap of episode 1, The Hope in the Horror.
The first episode was all about Zach. Although most of the characters were unsure about whether or not to believe that Zach had killed those people, I knew he was not behind it, but was framed. However, I was not expecting it to be who it was. Amongst all of Zach’s ex co-workers, there was Wendel and being the only one not having ever met Zach, he believed in giving him a second thought. By the end of the episode I had a hunch, back when Zach was first sent to the institution he confessed to Sweets that he was innocent but asked Sweets to tell no one. Even so, I think that Sweets had actually told someone, only one person, Agent Booth. Hopefully, if this is true, we can find out soon.
Now for episode 2, The Brain in the Bot.
In this episode there were 4 major things I want to mention. Firstly, Bones’ birthday. Bones turned 40 which, as Booth says, is a milestone and Bones takes the opportunity to throw herself a surprise party. Next, a big congratulations to Angela for receiving the MacArthur genius grant, she was actually nominated by Bones who kept it a secret until the end. Alongside that, Bones also waited ’til the end of the episode to tell Daisy she got the lead anthropologist job at the NFL. Lastly, I need to mention the subtle hit towards what’s going on with Bones’ dad, Max Keenan. A couple of weeks ago I read an article that had the writers of Bones state there will be two death in the final season. Now back to Max, in the final scene at Bones’ party he drops something. their daughter, Christine, picks it up and hands it back to Max. This is where you notice a band in his wrist, a band that looks like one from a hospital. This leads me to think, is one of the deaths going to be Max and if so, who is the other?
As each episode is aired, more and more will be revealed and resolved. Let me know what you think about the first two episodes and your thoughts on what might happen in the seasons future.
