Bones – Season 9, Episode 8: “The Dude in the Dam”

Bones: The Dude in the Dam

After nine seasons, why is it that Brennan still doesn’t understand that some people may find her rude?  Between Booth and Angela, I know they’ve talked to her about it 1,000 times.  She is too smart not to realize that her logical truthfulness doesn’t always sit well with people who don’t know and love her.  I find her confusion at how she is sometimes perceived to be a bit far-fetched.  However, her “feud” with Tess Brown was amusing.  When Sweets said she was up to something, my first thought was that she was trying to boost her sales.

Yay, Wendell is back!  He’s my favorite of the Squinterns.

Okay, Hodgins and the bot fly was just gross.  I squirmed every time they showed that thing on the back of his neck.  Blech!  So totally Hodgins though.  His reasoning behind it was pretty solid.  For a scientist who loves insects so much to have to destroy them so often must be difficult.  Sometimes it’s hard to remember that the Jeffersonian’s purpose is not just to be the forensics lab for Booth’s cases.  Unlike the lab techs on CSI, these people are scientists first.

So, Booth has gone from not really minding if Brennan kills off Agent Andy to wanting him to be a superhero.  I love the fact that the show has named the heroine of Brennan’s books after the writer of the books the show is based on.  I started reading Kathy Reichs books because of the show.

Favorite Lines:

  • “No one appreciates the power of the mollusks.” — Hodgins
  • “Are you really going to give birth to a bug because I saw The Fly and it did not end well.”  Wendell
