BONES 10×16 Debriefing: “I Bet This Was Delicious Once”

(c) FOX

Bones just made history by airing its 206th episode. As studio head Gary Newman pointed out in the cake cutting celebration for the 200th, at 206 episodes, the show becomes the longest running drama FOX Studios has ever produced. If you know some anatomy, you might also know that 206 is the number of bones in the human body.

Pretty cool, huh?

The show celebrated the milestone by mentioning every single ones of those bones  during the episode.  FOX, for their part, had a really fun way to complement this:  #BonesBingo! (Did you play along?)

The episode itself was a solid outing that gave us some behind-the-scenes glimpses at Booth and Brennan’s beloved Royal Diner. It also, surprisingly, touched on all the recently launched storylines and offered us some surprising developments.

While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.

BONES 10×13 Debriefing: “Make sure you come back”

One of my favorite things about Bones is that there is always some thematic connection between all (or, at least, most) of its stories in an episode. Tonight’s episode made sure to remark that, even the apparent worst situations might not be what they appear, and can have some good in them. Booth (David Boreanaz) and Connor (Mario Perez) were innocent men who went to prison and were changed by it; Arastoo (maybe naively) idealizes Iran, saying there might be virtue outside of the government. The first two men went to prison, whereas Arastoo (Pej Vahdat) is now risking his own freedom. (Another theme in tonight’s episode? You don’t turn your back on family.)

Combine that with an intense case, and you get a good episode — I am kind of intrigued to see where this storyline goes, if it comes back again.

Follow me along for a recap of what happened tonight.
