If I thought season 1 was amazing, it's follow-up season was even better! It felt tighter and so much more action packed. And now, since there's no need for introductions, we get a lot of movement on the love lives of the pairings in the show too. Plus new characters like Cam (whom I thought I'd hate but love) and Sully actually make me love Bones even more!
2x01: The Titan on the Tracks
Seeing the gang back together and having Camille brought in the picture was a really good move. I love the tension between Camille and Bones and how Booth is trying to deal with everything. Camille calling Zack Zackaroni is cute too. Also, isn't the private investigator the devil in Reaper?!
Booth: Yeah, Bones doesn't intimidate. Cam: Then...what? Booth: Have you seen the way she stares at human remains before she makes a decision? Cam: Yes. Booth: You're human remains and...she hasn't made a decision yet
2x02: Mother and Child in the Bay
Cam and Bones competing and making sure they one up each other is quite amusing. I love seeing Bones challenged cause she's been at the top of her game. Also, it's interesting to see how the rest of the staff are trying to tread middle ground between Cam and Bones.
Cam: What do you want? Angela: George Clooney naked on a white sand beach.
2x03: The Boy in the Shroud
The victim in this episode is kinda cute! And the little boy (suspect) is actually really adorable too. Seeing into the foster child situation of Bones a child is nice too. And Booth, don't deny it, you still have the 'Savior complex' now and you're no longer a teenage boy. Too bad Bones isn't waiting to be saved.
Cam: Booth, if Dr. Brennan were to quit. Booth: What? Cam: If she were to leave the Jeffersonian Booth: Well, the squints would flee this institution like the French army. Cam: And you? Booth: Well I do as I'm ordered. Cam: No you don't, Seeley. Booth: Okay here we go. What's going on Camille? Cam: What if I fired her? What would you do? Booth: I'm with Bones, Cam. All the way. Don't doubt it for a second.:
2x04: The Blonde in the Game
The dogs in the start scare the crap out of me. Meanwhile the pig Booth gave Bones in the end? Really adorable. These two are too cute! Also at first I thought Caroline Epps was Amy Adams -- not apparently. And Howard Epps still scares the shit out of me. He needs to die now.
Brennan: Are you on some kind of medication? Booth: Bones. Caroline Epps: Dr. Brennan, I'm not one of those crazy women who falls in love with death row killers. Brennan: Obviously, that's exactly what you are.
2x05: The Truth in the Lye
Booth is getting a lot of lady action in this episode, e?! I mean I appreciate the fact that Booth is getting some loving elsewhere (Rebecca and Cam) but you know I'd rather have Booth and Bones kiss or have any sort of physical contact! I love how Booth finds it so awkward talking about sex with Bones.
Brennan: So, you never said how it ended up with Rebecca. Booth: Well, yea it ended--the only time we'll ever spend together is with Parker. Brennan: You sure that's what you want? Booth: You know what Bones, it might be all anthropology to you, but there are certain people that you just can't sleep with. I mean, you can pretend that it's just sex. You can lie to yourself and you can say that it is all good, but there is just too many strings-too much at stake--too much to lose. Brennan: Yea, I can see that. Booth: So, you know I appreciate you know your support. Brennan: I will, and if you should slip I will keep my mouth shut about it. Booth: Thank you. But I mean it is not like I am gonna Brennan: No, I mean with anybody. I'm sure Rebecca is not your only option for satisfying biological urges.
2x06: The Girl in Suite 2103
Screw diplomatic immunity! The ambassador's son is pretty cute though. And I love it when Zack and Hodgins do experiments. These two are just too cute together! And Booth being paranoid over him and Cam sleeping together? Guilty much! Just come clean to Booth! you know you want to!
Angela: I'm going to hell, aren't I? Hodgins: I'll save you a seat.
Hodgins: I could kiss you! Angela: That requires permission... which I deny.
2x07: The Girl with the Curl
Little girl pageants scare the crap out of me. Even more than Howard Epps. I thought it was really cute how Bones and Booth were really enjoying watching the pageant though. And of course, how can I not include the cuteness that is Angela/Hodgins?! These two are growing on me!!!
Angela : Childhood should be all about swings. Hodgins: Swings? Angela: You know how high can I go, if I twist the chains how fast will I spin. Hodgins: Or if I try and jump off before the swing stops. Angela: Exactly. Hodgins: I miss that feeling. Angela: Yeah me too. Brennan: I miss organic chemistry class, those were good times. Zack: I miss my first microscope. Booth: Great, yeah and I miss normal people can we go on?
2x08: The Woman in the Sand
Booth beating boys up and Brennan pretending to be his fiance is the HOTTEST/cutest disguise ever! When Bones comes out in the hot outfit, the look on Booth's face is priceless. Just come out and tell Bones you think she's hot, Booth! Oh and Bones, counting cards is cheating. Watch 21!
Hodgins: What If I call you a scrawny twit who can't hold a conversation with a ten year old? Zack: I don't have much in common with a ten year old. And although I don't know what a twit is, objectively I am thin and lack muscular definition.
2x09: Aliens in a Spaceship
Hodgins confessing to Bones how much he loves Angela makes me want to die. Who knew I'd love them so much?! And when Booth comes running to save Booth from the car, I'm practically in tears. These two are destined for each other. I wish someone would say something! Lastly, Bones and Hodgins are so smart.
Booth: It was a mistake. The Grave Digger is not God, Bones, because God doesn't make mistakes. Angela: Mmm, I don't know. Putting testicles on the outside didn't seem like such a great idea.
2x10: The Headless Witch in the Woods
The moment Bones decided to hook up with the victims brother, I felt he was the killer. Why? Cause Bones chooses the most terrible candidates for boyfriend-hood, when she could have Booth already! When Bones saw Booth and Cam holding hands, my heart broke for her. Admit it, Bones! You like him!
Brennan: You know I'm just ... I'm just one of those people who doesn't get to be in a family. Booth: (placing a finger on her chin) Listen Bones, hey, there is more than one kind of family.
2x11: Judas on a Pole
How bad ass is Bones's father?! Killing off anyone and everyone who tries to harm his kids? Sweet. I feel so bad for Booth getting suspended too! He's doing this to protect you, Bones! And I like Russ. He seems like he's really reformed already. Zac's makeover is also very nice. Bones + Booth hugging? WIN!!!
Brennan: Yeah, you’re right. Thanks. I wish you wouldn’t keep letting me hug you when I get scared. Booth: Hey, when I get scared, I’ll hug you. We’ll call it even.
2x12: The Man in the Cell
Thank goodness for the end of Howard Epps because he really freaked me out. Putting Cam in the hospital just took Booth away from Bones so not good in my book. I'm glad that thing is over though. And don't beat yourself up over it, Booth! Howard Epps obviously deserved to die. Oh and Parker is getting cuter!
Booth: You know, what happened to Cam happened because we had a personal relationship. Brennan: Had? Booth: Yeah, people who work in high risk situations they can't be involved romantically because it leads to things like what happened. Brennan: High risk situations Booth: Every single day it's with us and there's this line and we can't cross it--you know what I'm saying? Brennan: Yes. I understand.
2x13: The Girl in the Gator
Gordon Gordon + Booth = Really Funny. Booth does have some issues and he needs to work them out. Like say his repressed sexual tension with Bones? Also, I love seeing Booth do manual labor. Yay for barbecue. Meanwhile, Bones gets a new love interest? Sully isn't so bad. He's just not Booth.
Brennan: I thought you said you'd be down on the next flight. Booth: I haven't met with the shrink yet. Brennan: What shrink? Booth: Well, the department psychiatrist has to sign a piece of paper saying, you know, that I am not nuts, before I get my gun back, so I got an appointment tomorrow. Brennan: Great. Now I have to break in this Agent Sullivan? Booth: Sully's a great guy, okay. And for your information, you never broke *me* in.
2x14: The Man in the Mansion
Look! It's Andy from Dawson's Creek! Except she's much older and is also Hodgin's ex-fiance! I love guest stars on this show! I'm glad that Bones didn't let Hodgins resign either. Also, Bones wanting to make the first move on Sully is so her! Work it, woman! And more Gordon Gordon/Bones is more fun for us!
Booth: You just don't get it. Sully: What? I am asking for guy advice. You are a guy. What's not to get? Booth: First of all, guys they don't ask for advice. And secondly, I'm not going to help you get my partner into bed Sully: Why not? It's not like you want her. Unless--Do you want her? Booth: Nah, come on, Bones is you know she's my partner. Sully: Oh, that is why you need psychiatric treatment because you have the hots for your partner.
2x15: Bodies in the Book
Nooo!!! I don't like that things are super serious with Bones and Sully. But I guess it's just fair since Booth also had his share of romping around. Booth and Sully getting together to protect Bones is like a glorified pissing contest. It sucks how Booth gave in to Sully though. I guess he just wants Bones to be happy.
Sully: Well, two hands are better than one, Booth. Booth: Well, last time I checked, I had two hands. See? Angela: Testosterone spill on Aisle 4
2x16: The Boneless Bride in the River
Booth getting Bones out of her vacation with Sully repeatedly throughout the episode was so cute. He's just trying to be a good friend, when you know he wants Bones with him. I wish he'd man up and just say it out loud -- that is if he knows what it is he's feeling. I'm happy Bones didn't go with Sully.
Sully: You know Booth, uh, is a really good guy. Brennan: He says the same about you. Sully: Really? Cause I figured he was the one talking you out of going with me. Brennan: No. He told me to go. Angela did too. Everyone thinks it's a great idea. Sully: Everyone except you.
2x17: The Priest in the Churchyard
Bones and Booth seeking help from Gordon Gordon over their 'difficult working relationship' was so fun to watch. I really love Gordon Gordon. Any time Gordon Gordon observes Booth, it's just hilarious! When Angela tells Bones that Hodgins is perfect, I get all giddy. I never thought these two would be so cute!
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: [after Angela tells him he was wrong about Booth and Bones's issue] I stand by my diagnosis. Angela: You stand by the FBI. Your first priority is to get Agents back in the field solving murders. Dr. Gordon Wyatt: [chuckles] Your romanticism is endearing but as the bard says "Lovers and madmen have such seething brains such shaping fantasies that apprehend more than cool reason could comprehend." Angela: He also says "Journeys end in lovers meeting every wise man's son doth know."
2x18: The Killer in the Concrete
I'm so happy that we get to see Bones go crazy protective over Booth this time. At least we get to see that it's not just one-sided, this partnership they have. We all know Bones isn't exactly a rule breaker so seeing her break it all for Booth is saying a lot. Bones dad sure knows how to get their work done.
Brennan: Yes. This is Dr. Brennan at the Jeffersonian. I just received a call from Agent Booth that he's being held at the Purdue Airfield in Oakville, Virginia. Send back up. I'm going in. Angela: You just lied your ass off to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Hodgins: That is so hot.
2x19: Spaceman in a Crater
The astronauts wives are creepy. Also, the astronaut suspect is kinda hot. Bones and Booth inside the zero-gravity space thing was so cute. The CGI wasn't perfect but they were adorable. And Hodgins asking Angela to marry him in that fancy French restaurant was really sweet of him.
Hodgins: This guy's wearing loafers. Aliens don't wear loafers. Camille: Even if they want to pass unnoticed amongst us? Booth: Before taking over? Hodgins: This is harassment. You know, it's illegal to mock people for their fundamental beliefs.
2x20: The Glowing Bones in the Old Stone House
Of course Bones can get a table at the best restaurant in town. The chef, Carly was really pretty too. And the suspect's husband was so hot. I hate how they always get the hot ones to be either guilty or evil. And yay for Angela finally saying yes to Hodgins! See, third time's a charm, my friend!
Zack: What am I always the murder victim? Hodgins: Sit! Brennan: Zack's always the murder victim. Booth: Oh, okay, look, we know that Ben had sex with Carly in the backseat of that car. But you didn't find any evidence of rape. Brennan: So the sex they had was consensual. Hodgins: *This* part will be left up to the imagination.
2x21: Stargazer in a Puddle
Bones's mom is really pretty. Also, the Angela/Hodgins wedding was so fab! Not a fan of the wedding dress though. Too bad it didn't push through because Angela's married?! What?! The hug that Bones and Booth shared at the altar though? Foreshadowing for the future perhaps? I wish.
Brennan: "I would like to marry you." Booth: Kind of sudden, Bones. Let me think about that Brennan: No, Booth. That's what Angela told Hodgins. Are you joking?
Definitely an amazing season. The ending was pretty satisfying and the entire season itself had a lot of leaps and jumps for the characters so it's nice to see what'll happen to them in Season 3. I'm hoping for more physical contact between Booth and Brennan and a happily ever after for Angela and Hodgins!!! A girl can dream.
