What is on page 187?! That will be a question the cast and crew of Bones will be asked at every fan-attended event from here on out. Could we actually publish the answer, I’d reach out to the writers myself. But alas, family website. So, we wait.
Two big storylines last night: In an opening that made me physically angry, Sweets watched a young man who battled leukemia for half his life (and just found out he’d beaten it) die in a freak subway accident after an earthquake broke a water main, flooded the tunnel, and caused a derailment. He’d told Sweets about all the exotic women he was going to sleep with in exotic places, and it got Sweets thinking about what he wanted out of life. The show did an excellent fakeout making us think it wasn’t girlfriend Daisy. He didn’t want her to comfort him, he didn’t return her calls. She became even more annoying in the lab, and Cam made Angela take the self-proclaimed sexual dynamo for a ride to find out what was bothering her. Daisy was convinced Lancelot was going to be the first man to break up with her. Cut to Sweets finally coming to her in the Bone room. Seeing her standing on the ladder was the first time it hit me that maybe he wasn’t going to crush her. He’d been deciding that he didn’t want to spend another minute apart from her. He knelt and proposed using his mother’s ring — which represented 60 years of love. I cheered. I’ll admit it. It could be because the idea of making a strange setting suddenly romantic with a ladder reminded me of Singin’ in the Rain, or because I can’t wait to see if Daisy tries to make Brennan, Cam, and Angela a part of the wedding party.
