Bones Season 8 Episode 23
“The Pathos in the Pathogens”
Air Date: April 22, 2013
First of all, congratulations on surviving tonight’s episode! Second of all if you guessed Arastoo as the poor lad to be hit with this virus then you are also correct!
So what did you all think of this episode? Did you enjoy the drama? The energy? The love? The vulnerability? It was all pretty exciting wasn’t it?
Lets put on our hazmat suits and begin shall we? The beginning of this episode was very intense! Leaving us wonder during the commercial weather or not someone will be in danger during the episode so I think they handled that very well! Everyone is working very fast and seems off the edge, but that is only normal when working with a very poisonous virus right? They find out it isn’t airborne so no need for the hazmat suits and biohazard tent! Unfortunately it is blood borne and could still effect someone!
In the Next scene, yes, we see that Arastoo was helping out when he accidentally cut his finger on the remains and since we know the virus is blood borne this will not turn out good for him. Cam is very worried about Arastoo and Booth is worried about Brennan being in the same environment as the virus!
They set up a bed in the bone room for Arastoo so they can take care of him while still researching the virus he has contracted. The key to saving Arastoo’s life is finding the killer or the victim. ( I’m on my edge just talking about it) Arastoo is getting worse his temperature is rising, heart is racing, he starts shacking intensely and everyone is very tense! According to Brennan’s bone scan he only has 4 hours to live. Hodgins made a medicine himself to help out Arastoo and it seems to help a little bit. Apparently he was infected with a bacteria and a virus. WOW! They find the man with the medicine to cure Arastoo. He won’t tell Booth anything without a lawyer, even after Cam expressed her love about Arastoo to the man. Brennan was very upset at him and couldn’t take it any longer so she grabbed his neck and injected the man with the non-deadly version of the virus. Then he finally confessed.
In the end of the episode, everyone is happy to see Arastoo doing better. Booth expresses how lucky he is to have Brennan and they both agree to go out for a drink to celebrate! All in all this was a very dramatic and intense episode which I enjoyed! Now all we have left is the season 8 finale! Are you ready for this? I know I am!
