Bones Season 9 Episode 2 Review – The Cheat in the Retreat

Bones Season 9, Episode 2
“The Cheat in the Retreat”
Air Date: September 23, 2013

A body is found in a trash container when two Animal Control officials attend a call of a bob cat. When they caught the bob cat they found he is actually eating a human arm.

Meanwhile, Cam and Arastoo are stopped on their way to work by a very racist official. When Cam starts to argue with him, he asked for her ID and found out she is wanted by the authorities, accused of check and credit card fraud and is arrested.

Going back to the case, Booth and Brennan got to the crime scene where Hodgins, as usual, is digging into the trash container examining the remains, and Brennan found out that the skull is missing; with that Hodgins informed her that sometimes bob cats climb trees and hide the food, so they find the skull up on a tree.

Cam got to the lab and informed everybody there (Arastoo, Angela and Brennan) that she has been victim of identity theft … poor Cam goes through a lot of stress because of it, thinking she has to go through it by herself, but soon, everybody shows her it doesn’t have to be that way.

Because the bob cat destroyed almost the whole face it is hard work to make the facial reconstruction, but they found out that the victim suffered from a disease very rear in the United States so they investigated in the Department of Public Health.

They identified the victim as Adam Pak, a married Korean guy. Before this, Sweets made a wrong analysis of everything they found and when Booth gave him the correct information Sweets started feeling overwhelmed.

The investigation leads Booth and Brenna to a couples retreat, something a little bit awkward given the situation they are going through, because it is a married couples retreat.

In Cam’s situation, Hodgins offered her the services of his lawyer, that way, he can help her to solve her situation, but Cam keeps denying anyone’s help.

In Brennan’s house, she and Angela keep talking about the situation with Booth. Brennan said to Angela that she is being mean with him and Angela asked her why she isn’t. The most awkward moment came when Booth got home and found Angela there… it really seemed a very awkward moment, they don’t really talk to each other, she is mad at him and he is mad at her putting Brennan against the wall.

As soon as Angela left their house, Booth and Brennan start to talk about the case. That’s when they agreed they have to go undercover to that retreat undercover as Tony and Roxy characters… I have to say, I love every time they go undercover, but God, Tony and Roxy are my favorites. The way they talk with that Jersey-Italian accent, how they dressed and even the way they walk is so funny and sexy.

At the retreat Tony and Roxy (but most of all Booth and Brennan) start to talk about their “secrets”. When the guy said to Brennan… Roxy in this case that maybe he uses her brain more than her heart Booth thinks the guy just made the point.

When all the couples at the retreat gather, Brennan and Booth found out that the victim and her… partner, who ended not being his wife, have a lot of problems and secrets between them.

“Everyone have something they’re afraid to tell their partner, but if you find the courage to open up is always for the best”… here is when the shaman actually touched a very sensitive point in Brennan giving her the opportunity to talk, and, as Roxy, she said that Tony has secrets to her.

In one of the funniest scenes in the episode Roxy said that she has a secret to share, telling “Tony” that she dislikes when he wears the beer hat in the bath, making him look foolish and making her feel that she married a child… I think I’m not the only one who thinks that it was a complaint from Brennan and not form Roxy, and the best part is when he answer “Are you kidding me” and she said “No Tony I ain’t” with that “Tony and Roxy “accent.

Once “boys and girls” are separated they go to have girls and boys talks.

Brennan, as usual, can’t hide her scientific talk when one of the girls started to talk about the toxins they are sweating, causing that the girls to almost catch her but, saving the talk with a distraction. I think this scene is really funny, because Brennan made some kind of ritual to call one of the girl’s ancestors, it really made me laugh the way she start to shake pretending she is actually calling the spirits, just to get some information of the victim’s “girlfriend”.

In the lab everybody is working in the case but also, they are trying to find a way to help Cam, so, Angela started to search into Cam’s finances, to see if she can help her solve her problem. I think this was one of the sweetest things in this episode, because, even when Cam kept denying that she needed help, her coworkers didn’t give up and keep working and searching, and Arastoo really gave his support to her.

Is in this episode when Sweets started to think that he wants to leave; he talked to Angela and told her that he wants to leave for a while – something that doesn’t really like to her. He thinks that at the moment he is not really doing what he’s supposed to do, help people, individuals, and referred to himself as a healer. Obviously the whole thing with Pelant affect too much to Sweets, making him think about leaving, and feeling guilty just like anyone else.

Back in the retreat Tony and Roxy had to participate in the exercise of trust and communication. I have to admit, I stop breathing watching this scene. Booth dressed like a sumo wrestler going through a course guided by Brennan. It was so funny to see Booth that way because, his character can be funny with some things, but watching him like that was something I would never expect.

After Brennan finished the course, she discovered that the course could be the murder scene, so they interrogate the shaman finally telling them who they actually were.

The shaman said they have no jurisdiction there, but it didn’t stop them so they kept searching but now out of the retreat.

In the sweetest thing that Arastoo could do, he took some lunch for Cam, knowing that at the moment, her finances are not the best. I love the scenes between Cam and Arastoo because they are so romantic to each other and Arastoo support so much Cam at that hard moment.

Later Angela went and talked to Cam saying what she has being doing to help her causing Cam to cry, I think of happiness because she realized she’s not alone on the problem.

Sweets at the end, decided he’s taking time off and announced it to Booth with a letter, something that doesn’t make Booth so happy.

Related to the case, the team discovered one of the couples of the retreat, the Schumachers were the murderers. The lady hit Adam in the head with an eight ball and when they saw he tried to run the husband ran him over.

At the end of the episode Booth and Brennan tried to put in practice something of what Brennan learned at the retreat.

I have to say this episode was amazing, it was so fun, form beginning to end, I laugh a lot, but also I felt so sorry for Cam, though, it was great to see the whole team working to help her go through the situation.

Bones Season 9 Episode 1 Review – The Secrets in the Proposal

Bones Season 9, Episode 1
“The Secrets in the Proposal”
Air Date: September 16, 2013

Well, after a very painful hiatus Bones is back with season 9. The first episode “The Secret in the Proposal” brought us a very hurt Brennan and a very mad, angry, furious Booth.

The episode started with Booth going to “confession” to a former priest, Aldo, an old friend of Booth from his time in the military.

“I lied to the woman I love” were Booth’s words to him, and the only words Booth felt secure to say in front of all those technologic devices, obviously feeling no kind of trust, knowing that Pelant is “watching him”.

Personally, I would have the same thought that Aldo has… this guy is paranoid, but after Booth confessed everything to him he started to understand the situation and how dangerous Pelant can be, advising Booth that the best thing to do was find him and kill him.

“Have you notice that a dead body always saves Booth from confronting his demons”, Sweets told to Caroline when they try to “Confront” Booth about what is happening.

Related to the case, they found human remains inside a fan from a hotel. At the scene we just found Brennan and Cam but when Booth got there the situation turned a little awkward between them. What I didn’t understand was why Booth was the one who acted a little mean to Brennan, avoiding her and unable to answered her phone calls.

The investigation leads Booth and Brennan to the hotel room where the murder victim was staying, where we could see more awkward time between them; first of all Brennan trying to avoid working with Booth something hat he notice, and making him try to explain why he didn’t answer her calls giving Brennan the opportunity to tell him that Angela say he is lying. Even when Booth said those words, “I’d die for you, I love you” Brennan wasn’t even able to believe in those words, and who could blame her, his actions spoke before his words.

In this episode the squint there was Daisy. I don’t really like her but I love when she and Hodgins make their experiments to find out what happened to the bodies. In this case, they have to “clean” the big fan, take out all the remains and try to find some evidence. They found an artificial stapes giving them the chance to identified the victim; Jonas Sidell, a worker from the State Department.

In this episode we also saw the hard situation between Booth and Angela. Many people could think that Angela is being mean to Booth, but, honestly, she is doing what anyone in her place would do, she is Brennan’s best friend, she knows she is hurt and , even when she doesn’t know Booth’s reasons, he is the man who hurt her friend.

Meanwhile, Brennan and Booth, mostly Brennan starts to feel desperate about the situation between them, “We will pass trough this” Booth told to Brennan causing her to react in a very understandable way asking him what are they gong through and making Booth have the desire of tell her the whole true, but realizing is not possible at that moment.

When Booth and Sweets go to check at the victims apartment they found Danny Beck, another of Booth’s army buddies who works for the CIA, and with this they found the murder victim was working for the CIA.

“When Temperance finds out you put her happiness ahead of the lives of 5 innocent people how will she react”, that question popped up in Aldo’s head to Booth, and that’s true. But is also true that Booth is a man of justice and, unfortunately he would do anything to protect anyone from dying, even if he has to sacrifice his own happiness or that of the woman he loves.

Brennan and Daisy found out that the cause of death was two blows to the head and Angela found a photo of the victim with a woman whom turned out to be the victim’s assistant.

After dig on evidence and interrogate suspect after suspect they found out that the murderer was a coworker of the victim who was in love with the girl he slept with, saying what everybody says, I didn’t mean to kill him… well at the end he killed him.

Getting back with Brennan and Booth, Brennan went to Aldo’s bar and he found out she was “Booth’s girl”, thank God for that man because he kind of convinced Brennan to have faith in Booth. He told her Booth wants to marry her more than she does, and that he has his reasons for what he’s doing. I think it was also Cam who helps Brennan’s trust return, because at the end, Brennan came home and gave Booth the most beautiful speech I’ve heard, though, he thought she was leaving him, that almost, broke my heart, his face thinking that was so sad, but the she said:

“I have absolute faith in you, I trust you… I know you love me and Christine and… I’m sorry I lost sight of that temporarily; you’re a good man, you have your reasons and when you can you’ll share them to me… I’m sorry.. but we’re fine… but next time is your turn to ask me to marry you…”

It was a good ending, everything most of us were expecting, Brennan getting again her trust in Booth and understanding that, he did what he did for a good reason, even if she doesn’t know that reason, but that is love, trust in your partner right.

The bad thing of the end, Pelant makes himself present, changing the time at the clock (the magic number 4:47) and we all realize he really has something to do with this number.

At the end I think it was the perfect season premiere episode.
