I need to chew on this ep a bit more before I know how I really feel about it. But I think I'm going to leave the in-depth meta to other folks and save the words for fic -- at least for now.( Cut for Yanks in the U.K. spoilersCollapse )
ETA: Please consider this a blanket notice that you are welcome to squee AND criticize Bones (or anything else) in my journal. Some fans are bothered when they read other fans' criticisms of the show; I'm not one of them. If you're critical, I won't call you a bad fan or say, "Dude, you're harshing my squee," or "Why do you keep watching the show if you dislike so much about it?" or my favorite, "It's only a TV show." I'm a writer; I get that people can have complicated relationships with fiction. *g*
Same goes for pure, unadulterated squee. If you love something, great! Don't be afraid to speak up. Your opinion is your opinion, and my opinion is mine. We don't need to agree on all possible points -- or even any of them. Feel free to be honest here, for better or worse.
