Hemorrhage In My Hands

Jack slides from beneath Angela’s arm, escaping his dark bedroom.

In the kitchen he considers taking two beers up to Zack’s apartment.  Remembering, he pulls onions from the pantry instead.

Papery skin gives way; Jack makes the first cut.  

As the Syn-propanethial-S-oxide hits his eyes, tears well.  

“What’re you doing?” 

Her sleep-slurred voice snares his attention, but the blade keeps moving.  “Making onion quiche.”  He barely falters when the knife kisses flesh.

“It’s 3:00 in the morning.”  Warm fingers clasp his wrist.  “Jack, stop.  You’re bleeding.”

Jack stares at their hands.  “I never taught him to drive.”

Angela's fingers tighten.

This is beautiful. I really believe that Hodgins is going to carry the MOST guilt of all of them and he's such a softie. So sad.

Thank you! Hodgins doesn't have any living blood relatives left; I'm convinced he considers Zack family, and with him locked up in a psych. facility, that's NOT going to be easy for him. I don't know whether the show will show the repercussions in any depth, but from a character perspective, Hodgins has to take it hard.

I hadn't even processed the family aspect, but you're totally right.

I've heard a TINY tidbit re: next season and Hodgins (which doesn't contain any new data). Would you like to know, or do you stay unspoiled?

Spoil away! :D I read somewhere that Hodgins and Angela will break up, but I think that's all I've heard about him.

There was a line in a side that someone shared where Hodgins is talking to one of the candidates for Zack's position (or someone) and saying (and I can't find the exact quote), "I had a friend who worked here, and he got into some really bad stuff and got locked up. And I miss my friend."

So...my impression? They're going to address it at least somehow.
