After the darkness of “The Hole in the Heart” the tone of “The Change in the Game” was decidedly lighter. Last week could have been a finale; it had the drama, the big events and a certain amount of closure. For fear of spoiling anyone who hasn’t seen the last two episodes I’ll just cut to the jump right now.
“The Hole in the Heart” was about death; Jacob Broadsky was back and aiming to kill Booth and the Jeffersonion gang by his warped code of ethics and sense of duty to rid the world of bad people, and the people in his way. Booth is the protector of life; he has emotional scars from his time as a sniper but has chosen to deal with these feelings in a positive way, becoming an FBI agent and choosing happiness, life.
Last week I started to bug out a little over the lack of forward momentum in Bones these days. There was pretty much zero forward movement this week too, actually, with Brennan’s absolute cluelessness she seems to be going backward. At least there were a few adorable clueless moments. Luckily the lack of actual hook ups wasn’t as noticeable since there was less focus on the Booth/Brennan coupling and more on the case and Canadians.
Unless you forget your long john’s it’s a piece of cake
We get it Hart Hanson; you’re Canadian, and so is Kathy Reichs, the author of the Temperance Brennan novels…
…and as a Canadian who loves a good shout out when she sees one, good on you – this was a fun one.
We’ve had a number of episodes where the team has been stuck in the Jeffersonian for one reason or another and must solve a case while inside. This time the building has shut down (and lost power) due to a massive blizzard that hit Washington. I’m attempting to approach this review without sounding too bitter towards the show, I continue to enjoy Bones week to week, but the lack of progress is starting to get to me (and after 6 seasons I’d like to think I’ve had the patience of a TVshipper saint!).
