A few random, disjointed thoughts:
To go meta for a second, I think the theme of this epi was truth and lies. More on this later.
I love this show. Sure, it's clichéd and predictable at times. But it's got real, honest to goodness heart; that's why I watch and why I'll keep watching.

The gift exchange scene was heartwarming. Truly. I just wish we'd gotten some dialogue. What a riot that Hodgins was given a framed picture of a bug.
