Quick Bones thought before bed

Wow... does Bones have emotional issues or does she have emotional issues?

I mean, I know she does, this just makes it all the more scarily obvious.

It does kind of explain why she always gets so into the undercover/role-playing stuff they do... the Vegas ep, the circus ep... next week, apparently. It's a way for her to try those human connections on for size and then be able to take them off again at the end of the day.

My folks were remarking on the Murphy Brown similarities, but having never watched that show (before my time) I can't really compare. All I know is, every time someone reassured Brennan that she would be a great mother, I kinda cringed. I know it's possible that her mothering instincts would take over and she would be able to provide the emotional support and stimulus a child needs, but it's just as possible that it wouldn't.

Oy, it makes my head spin.

And I'm still wondering how they're going to screw us over next week.

My theory on next week? It will all be going on in Booth's head, either as he's in surgery or while he's recovering.

My first instinct when the scenario popped into my head was to throw it out, simply because there's no way the writer's would do something so lame... and then I remembered how they handled Zack and how they handled the Gravedigger and any number of other things this season. And, well, it's currently back in my "best bet" spot for what we're going to see next week.
I'm preparing myself for something horrible like that, because then I'll be pleasantly surprised if I'm wrong :\ was an interesting episode and as much as I kind of love Tempe, she'd suck as a Mom--at least as she is currently. Thank goodness Booth realized he'd have to be involved, but I guess not a problem! Just the whole brain tumor thingy now and the rather curious teaser of teh secks.
I felt so sorry for Booth through this whole episode.

I'm sort of glad they finally dealt with all the hallucinations Booth has been having, though, because otherwise it seemed that he must just be going nuts ;) Although Bones saw the dead friend too...
