Timeline:  Set after Brennan accosts Booth in his bathroom.

Mirror, Mirror

It isn’t until she’s back home, alone, staring at her reflection in her own bathroom mirror, that Brennan smiles. Where did Booth find that ridiculous contraption he’d had perched atop his head when she’d stormed the steam-filled bastion of his bathroom?

The smile edges into wild laughter echoing off the walls and clanging in her ears. She braces her arms hard against her stomach.

Hold it in. Hold it in.

The futile admonishment ricochets ‘round her brain. She gasps. Within the space of one peal of laughter, dubious humor alchemizes into saltwater; she nearly drowns in it.

Booth is alive.

You have just redeemed that scene in my mind.

OMG, but freevortexis absolutely brilliant in saying that you have redeemed that scene.

I hated it, then after re-watching maybe 6 times, understood it, but still hated the hat, the cigar, and the graphic novel as totally OOC!Booth.

Now, however, it's clear that these are a reflection of Whimsical!Booth.

Given his military background, I can maybe buy Booth smoking a cigar to relax. I can even accept that he reads graphic novels, though I know the fact that it was an issue of The Green Lantern that he was perusing was a shout-out to DB's voiceover. But that Steelers beer helmet? I just don't buy it.

As I said to freevortex, I'm not sure anything can redeem that scene. *g* But I do appreciate the sentiment.

Thanks for reading and commenting!
