And this brings us the first discussion point of last night’s fabulous episode “The Bullet in the Brain.” What did you think of Heather Taffet’s sendoff? Were you uneasy, like Angela, or overjoyed like Hodgins? I, for one, thought it was pitch perfect. I mean, nobody wanted to see the woman get lethal injection, did they?
So let’s talk about the case. Basically, a lot of talking to figure out that Jacob Broadsky (excellent serial killer name, played by The Mummy’s Arnold Voosloo, a veteran TV baddie), an off-the-grid sniper, is going after our man, Booth. Easily the most exciting thing about the episode was the great chase scene between the two men, which involved a ruggedly handsome Booth sprinting through beautiful woods after Broadsky and culminating in a killer explosion of Broadsky’s trailer along with all of the evidence to tie him to Taffet’s murder. I, for one, am so excited to see how this story plays out, considering Booth’s sniper past. I mean, this guy has been described as the anti-Booth, and I can see why. Booth always tries to do the right thing, and this guy thinks he’s doing the right thing, but is demented. And, how is this going to bring Booth and Brennan together? I can’t wait to find out!
And, while we’re on the subject, what about Booth and Bones in this episode? In a season that has been, to put it nicely, wildly uneven, I thought this was back to the old routine. I’m sure it had nothing to do with a lack of my
As far as the rest of the team in the episode, the standout storyline was that of Sweets, who was having troubles dealing with what Heather Taffet had taunted him with minutes before she died. John Francis Daley did a great job this week. He really showed Sweets’s vulnerability, and it was nice to see how all of the other characters have taken to him, all of them checking on him to see if he’s ok. I also love that it was resident hard-A, Caroline who snapped Sweets out of his funk. Good, good stuff.
So, what did you think of “The Bullet in the Brain?” Are you on board with the sniper storyline? Can you just not wait for the great dumping of Hannah to take place so we can all get on with our lives? Hit me up, let me know.
