They're mixed. The ending definitely floored me, but the amnesia can't possibly last longer than a few episodes, if it is in fact amnesia. I don't like the twist, but after getting over my initial anger I've decided to like the first part and not even think about the second. I think it was low to lie to us and let us go in with hopes that were naturally gooing to be shattered.

I did sincerely love the rest of it though. I loved how fun and light it was. For the first time in ages I cared about the mystery and was intrigued by the plot. I loved seeing all the characters as well. Booth and Brennan were hot and adorable, AU or not. I never really expected them to hook up for real so I enjoyed all the cute moments anyway.

I loved what it all said about Brennan: writing about her and Booth making love, being married, having children etc. She really does seem to have come to terms with love which made the ending all the more heartbreaking.

So yeah, overall first 97& - A- and last 3% - D-

I am sticking to my guns about him not having amnesia, just disoriented.

Oh, I hope you're right... either on this point or that if it is amnesia, that it won't last too long. Part of me wouldn't mind seeing a well-written arc that includes the amnesia and the ramifications of Brennan finally realizing her feelings just as Booth has forgotten his. But... the likelihood of getting that kind of thoughtful contemplation is not very high.

Not that I'm complaining really, I mean, I continue to love the show, even with the changes and the edging toward lighter hearted Rom/Com... but... with that direction in mind... I feel that exploring something with the kind of depth that would do justice to that premise... might be a little too much to expect.

However... having watched the episode numerous times now.. I find myself more and more charmed by this version of B&B and more hopeful that even the ending was done with a very specific purpose in mind. I think that they would like to explore a different dynamic for the couple, even for just a little while... and I'm really looking forward to seeing how they do that.

Of course, I could also be totally wrong about all of this and next season opens to find that this has all been addressed off-screen during the summer and we're back to the same old same old. *sigh* I hope that's not the case.
