Fantastic Bones Episode! And "The Host"!!!  
Wow, what an episode!  Such a beautiful and touching ending, and such a wonderful balance of humor, drama, and emotion throughout, with excellent performances all around!  A top 5 episode for sure, and especially perfect for someone like me who watches only for the character development/plots and storylines, since there was literally NO mystery--all stuff about her father and the murder from "Judas on a Pole" (another fantastic top-5 episode, which this episode really made me want to watch again, especially with all the flashbacks to it here)!  Though I am kind of curious now as to how that guy in the beginning ended up in that position....:P

But yeah, I loved the emotion and suspense, and the way the defense was finally able to win, against all odds--substituting Brennan into all those scenes was so creepy and cool!  And Booth and Brennan were just too damn adorable in this episode, and so wonderful sweet and NATURAL--thank you writers!  Like when they kept whispering to each other in the courtroom (lol! and awww! Like little kids almost), and kept having coffee together between breaks, and Booth's "heart" speech, when they're teasing Sweets on the bench, saying, "I think he likes us...." lol! They're such a unit, it's beautiful......and yeah, I thought he might kiss her for a second there at the end (though I knew rationally the mean producers wouldn't let them yet) when I saw the lean, but the hug was almost as good, it just felt so real and full of emotion, and was so appropriate in that moment. It was also so poignant when he insisted Bones would never murder someone, the way he looked on the verge of tears and was all choked up....oh man!  You can just see how much he loves her there.....very well done, and great acting on DB's part!  My friends and I cheered and clapped when her father comes out in the end.....man, I was so worried he'd be convicted and executed when I heard someone might die next week, but I guess not.....but yeah, I was constantly squeeing during this episode, as well as laughing and wanting to cry....and Angela and Hodgins (the look he gives Angela!) and Zach were all great too, and Caroline (hilarious and amazing as always, though I was pissed she put Angela on the stand when she told Caroline up front she wouldn't testify!).....And that guy who worked for the defense, who I didn't recognize until half-way through as being the one who almost replaced Zack in the beginning--I loved how he knew a trick Zack didn't!  

This actually would have made a good season finale!  I hope next week's epp can match it, though from the promos it doesn't look like it....I feel disgusted that they're going to mention/promote American Idiot on Bones after all the crap that AI has put Bones through over the years.....>:(  It makes me sick, and would only be okay if, in response to Brennan's, 'What's American Idol?" (seen in the promo), Booth candidly replied, "It's that stupid show that's always pre-empting us!" :P

But yeah, I'm just so full of Bones love at the moment after this epp....and that's after I was so full of Moonlight love after Friday's epp!  I hope Gossip Girl's epp (which I have yet to watch, since they decided to air it in Bones' timeslot) this week is better than last week and equally as exciting.....I have an idea of what's going to happen given the title! ;)

And "The Host" is finally out!!! xD  I picked it up today at lunch, and can't wait to read it later.....if only I had more time to do so this week!

I really like the Booth/Bones 'ship, I think it really makes the show, although I'm torn between loving the tension and yelling "Ah! Just kiss already!" at the TV.

Wow... I really missed the best part of the episode. That was awesome.

You REALLY did! One of my fave scenes ever....just so beautifully done! We all cheered when Brennan's father came out and waved to her! It was funny because Sheila and others were telling us we had to go for that Sign Language fireside, but we were like, "NO! SHHHH--it's almost over!" :p
