Review - Bones Season 5 Episode 15 The Bones on a Blue Line

It seemed much longer than two months, but Bones is back. The much anticipated 100th episode is next week which should be interesting. The episode goes back to the beginning and Zach is in the episode!

After a huge flood in the subway system, a skeleton washes up. The body is Martin Aragon, a blind man who wrote anything for anyone from legalese to love letters. His love letter gets him tangled up in a love triangle. Overall, it was a standard case involving regular people who let a situation get out of hand. Daisy is now my second favorite intern after Vincent Nigel-Murray. She has absolutely no filter which makes for the funniest moments.

We've never known much about Brennan's books except that they are popular and Brennan earns lots of money. A Japanese reporter interviewing people at the Jeffersonian for an article seems to think the books' success is based on the character relationships. I thought it was a great meta reference. Brennan insists it's a the science stuff, but who really cares about all bone jargon? We learn that a lot of the characters have sex, and it wasn't even Brennan who wrote the scene. In fact, it was Angela who read the books and made suggestions relating to the sex. The notorious page 187, was something she'd done with Hodgins. At the end of the episode, Brennan gives Angela 25% of her earnings, an astounding figure that had to be in the hundreds of thousands.

Sweets having the leukemia-less guy die in his arms was a good moment, but the rest of the episode built up to the obvious conclusion that he would propose, so dialogue Sweets and Daisy was going around in circles. Did anyone not see that coming?

Score: 9.0/10
