Bones for the win!

Fantastic episode.  David Boreanaz can fucking act; his court scenes in this ep are a prime example of one reason why I feel so cheated when they have Booth clowning so much in these later seasons.  He's capable of so much more, as is everyone else on this show.

I'm not saying anything else about The Verdict in the Story right now, as I don't want to spoil anyone.

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

This episode made me ache for S1 Seeley... but a glimpse is more than I was hoping for, and I'll hang on to it.

The squints were all marvelous, too. Dare we hope for more...?

*g* I was SO wondering what you thought of this ep.

Yes, Seeley and the squints ALL hit it out of the park. Angela and Brennan were so beautiful together. I understand why people ship them, I really do. There's a lot of love and loyalty there.

Episodes like this feel bittersweet to me because they make me long for more, and I'm disappointed when the next excessively infantile moment(s) occurs. Don't get me wrong, I'm not humorless; I just HATE that they go for the cheap & easy laugh so ridiculously often. I don't want Bones to be a sitcom.

Dare we hope for more...?

Hope springs eternal... *crosses fingers*

*dances you around* Loved this ep.

David Boreanaz was amazing this episode. He was so dramatic and it felt so real and that you were sitting in the murder trial. Just amazing he is.

Yes, he really was terrific.

It was stellar. Truly.

And I know what you mean about having lots of thoughts. I suspect there will be a fair amount of meta coming out of this ep.

I so agree with you - tonight was such a showcase for all of them. Incredibly well written story with a twist I did not see coming. Very well done. The whole episode was a strong showing of them all, but Booth sitting in that witness chair, "that's a lot of heart, Bones" - oh, it rocked my night.
Can't wait to see excellent post-eps fic. . .hint hint. :)
BTW - I am a lurker reader - love your fic and your Booth/Brennan.

Hello again, and thank you. :) I remember you; you commented on a chapter of Come Undone.

Exactly. I totally agree.

*g* It's coming; there was a lot to digest in this ep.

great episode, and everyone's said why so much better than I.

I heart Bones, I heart her so much.

It really was a wonderful episode; I enjoyed it so much. :) And yes, Brennan was unbelievable. Bones has such a talented cast.

Yes, the look at the end! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I fell in love again with this amazing, amazing couple on this amazing, amazing show.

Although really that pretty much goes for the whole episode.

*joy*

I still think Aliens in a Spaceship remains the best episode the show's ever done, but this was a solid resolution to the Max/Russ/Temperance story arc. What I appreciated, and continue to appreciate about this show, is that despite all the information and equipment and overall GENIUS the Squint Squad has at their disposal, the cases they work on still utlimately have to go through the justice system, and the system doesn't always work the way we think it should. Which they did here - Max did it, and everyone knows it, but nobody can prove it, not even us viewers, since all we saw was Max setting fire to Kirby's corpse. (very clever on the part of the producers, too) I'm not going to lie - a part of me wanted Max to get convicted.

Goodman was right - Brennan's learning curve is disturbingly steep.

This was an amazing episode on so many levels. It was a return to the dramatic tension that we had in earlier seasons and like you, I feel we'd been cheated out of a lot of Booth's depth of emotion.

Don't get me wrong - last week's flufferall was sorely needed in my life and I really enjoyed it. But I don't want that every week - I need a bit more emotional connection that just "aww, lookit! CUTE SQUEE THUD" (although that doesn't hurt ;)

Those court scenes? Unbelievable. And the final scene? It's amazing how much Brennan and Booth can communicate with just their eyes. So much was said in that look alone. Amazing.

This episode was made a wonderful! I adore David Boreanaz's portrayal of Booth and the depths of undercurrent he projects. It absolutely reminded me of The Man in the Morgue when you could almost physically feel the depths of feeling he had for his partner, or, of course, Aliens in a Spaceship. As much as I love fluff Booth, he is WAY underused as an actor.

I completely agree! He's an amazing actor. I feel that they don't use him to his full potential very often. Sure, I love him clowning around and goofing off, but I love him even more when he's serious and defending something that means so much to him. Toward the end, when the attorney was grilling Booth, he looked like he was about to cry...and of course I wanted to cry with him! To me, the way Booth looked at Brennan there and at the very end on the steps of the courthouse said much more than any words could.

You've stated it perfectly; I can't put it any better than that. Pivotal moments in this ep.

For sure!! What an amazing episode. :D
