Of all the shows that I have viewed this week, this episode of “Bones” was by far the best show on television this week. What made this show so special was its ability to show three different story lines at the same time during the same show. Any one of these could have probably filled the hour but to combine three is something that I am not sure that I have ever seen before. Bravo “Bones” Bravo and thanks to David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel for producing and co-producing such an outstanding show. I can’t wait to see what story lines they come up with next.
Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and his partner Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel ) were on a mission to discover who murdered a young man when his bones were discovered among the bones of slaves and a sunken slave ship. The episode was so moving and definitely a winner for me and others like me who has fallen in love with the show. The chase of finding the murderer was complicated by Booth being reminded of his age in many different ways. This show was sprinkled with humorous moments which kept the viewer light hearted, like the scene where Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) was caught having sex with a fellow worker in his office. Where the show tugged at the heart strings and made a connection with hyper-sensitive viewers like me was watching Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin) sketch the pictures of the lost slaves and the energy she used to bring to life something that seem to appear foreign to many. Along with that was the realization of Dr. Camille Saroyan (Tamara Taylor) connecting with one of the remains found. To see Angie or Angela work so diligently on those drawings and putting a face to those skeletons or disagreeing with her colleague when she viewed the bones as a person instead of just bones was heartwarming but the most poignant points of this show was watching Camille choke back tears and finally speaking the name of one of her ancestors.
