Some thoughts from last night’s episode:
Well, we were finally introduced to Booth’s new girlfriend and she seems nice. However, I don’t know if I like this addition just because it takes air time away from the actual case. The good news is I’m pretty confident it is a relationship that won’t last and Hannah will either decide she would rather be working as a reporter on the front lines, will get jealous of Brennan or will either be murdered or will end up being a wanted criminal.
For you House fans out there, Hannah actress Katheryn Winnick played the rape victim in the season 3 episode “One Day, One Room.”
One thing I’ve noticed so far this season, which I like, is the Jeffersonian team once again has to spend more time solving the mystery of who the victim is before they can figure out who the killer is. I don’t know about you but I prefer it when they use forensics to determine someone was a recovering alcoholic, giving them the idea to check out the local alcoholic anonymous meeting rather than them finding the identity in a matter of a few minutes through finger prints, dental records or the FBI.
Another thing I liked about this episode is how it introduced us to the killer and mentioned the motive but did it in a way that kept the “who did it” part a mystery until the very end. Once again, that is very similar to what the show used to do but got away from the past couple seasons.
Was it me, or did this episode seem to throw in that first suspect just so Sweets could get some air time? Well, at least he shaved off that beard he was wearing in the season premiere.
I decided to back off my whole “bring back Zack” argument. But, I do think the show needs to get rid of some of Brennan’s interns and just focus on one or two. I personally would keep Wendall, because of his blue collar background, and Daisy because of her secondary role as Sweets’ love interest.
