BONES Recap: The Baby in the Bough
April 29, 2008 by Kath Skerry
Dearest Bones watchers,
That was one cute baby. Apparently they used a set of twins and triplets. Here’s hoping they don’t turn out as psycho as Mary Kate and Ashley. I think they’ll be okay seeing as how Uncle Jesse and Joey are no match for Booth and Brennan.
I thought we’d break this week’s show down Mythbusters style…
Brennan and Booth are looking into a woman’s death when they are called to a scene where a car was run off the road, and they hear a baby crying from a tree…BUSTED…not buying that one, sorry, Bones writers.
The baby quickly swallows a ‘key’ piece of evidence (rimshot) and then pees on Brennan…confirmed.
Once they find out where the baby is from, they go to get him some help. They meet a childless couple who sometimes cared for Andy. The couple tells them where Andy’s mother lived. Booth puts the smackdown on the baby’s deadbeat dad.
Brennan does a little magic with pool fluids to figure out a gun serial number, and she recreates evidence with water…she’s full of tricks… ILLUSIONS!
Maybe I wasn’t paying attention, but there were a lot of people involved, but what was the crime? The childless couple, the deadbeat dad, some guys at the tire factory, a missing city slicker accountant…Booth and Brennan explain it all to me in about one minute, but to find out, you have to watch for yourselves.
A little baby love is going on with the squint squad this week.
1. Angela says she wants a million kids and Hodgins tells her that’s great, and he won’t mind her when she’s mushy and shapeless. Ouch. Angela doesn’t slap him in the face…busted.
2. Cam says she’s not having kids because she’s not ‘giving up this body for that’ …plausible.
I like when Booth calls Brennan “Aunty Bones”. And with this new cash advance, ‘Aunty’ is making some serious bones…seven figs?…not bad. Booth uses his money for food and rent…yes, Booth, so do I…so do a lot of people.
I like Brennan’s growing reaction toward Andy…she shows compassion. There is also a nice moment where Brennan promises to leave if it gets too dangerous. She is thinking of others. Good character development.
I think she is shocked by how much she likes this baby (Dancing Phalanges!). She won’t let Booth take him to child services, and she also opens up a can on the bad guy…that’s an awe inspiring moment of maternal instinct. Don’t Mess!
I think they both are shocked at how good the idea of “our little guy” sounds. I don’t
know if Brennan wants a baby, but it’s clear she wants a family.
Brennan comes up with a good idea at the end on how to use her advance. Booth has some pretty good ideas too. I’m not sure either of them realize that he pretty much included himself in her future…that was nice…confirmed.
Favorite lines of the night:
- Brennan to Andy… ‘Elephants aren’t purple…this is wrong’.
- Booth to Brennan… ‘I’m not talking teats with you’.
Microsoft Word to your mother,
P.S…Next week’s episode is going to be A-MA-ZING…see you then!
Seeleybaby is glad the writer’s strike is over but now has to clear out her DVR for new episodes of Bones, The Office, and Scrubs. She also is still sad Arrested Development isn’t on (COME ON!) and is looking forward to more Flight of the Conchords.
