Bones Season 8 Romance: Who Is Cam's New Love Interest? You Tell Us!
Mon Jul 16, Illinois, USA Bones Thought I'd check out this episode over my lunch break and write up some thoughts.
Bones The Movie in the Making - TJ Thyne
I'm usually conflicted about this type of episode. Its premise is that a film crew follows around the characters for the whole of the episode, capturing their behaviors and - in lovely moments - their emotions or innermost thoughts. I'm sure we can all name shows where we've seen the characters being followed around by a camera crew. An episode like this can feel self-conscious and sometimes even self-serving.

It can feel like the show is putting on an act, trying to be funny, trying to be cute, trying to "tell" rather than "show" their storylines. Sometimes it works anyway, because the characters come off as trying too hard or acting awkwardly in front of the camera, unused to being followed around, unused to having to be careful about what they say.
It can also be an interesting new lens for viewing our beloved characters. And this episode caught many of those moments: We got to see a really adorable moment shared between Booth and his daughter, as he bundled her in protective gear and tied a pillow to the front of her and then taught her how to play hockey.
We got to see a moment at the end when Booth and Brennan played "car salesperson" with Christine, who - earlier in the episode - had declared over dinner that she neither wanted to be a hockey player nor a forensic anthropologist; she wanted to sell cars like her friend's dad.
Just seeing Booth and Brennan using toy money to outbid one another over the rights to own one of Christine's toy cars all laid out like a car lot with appropriate "Christine's Cars" sign was pretty sweet.
And it was great to see how a case has many parts and that it takes many people examining the evidence in many different ways in order to find the answers and capture "whodunnit.
You know, homicides, they're not solved by scientists. They're solved by guys like me asking a thousand questions a thousand times, catching people telling lies every time.
You're great at what you do, Bones, but you don't solve murders It would seem neither of them has learned anything since the pilot because they kept arguing all the way to the final scene in this episode, about which is better - gut or science - but in actuality they're both right and wrong.
In the end, the episode showed us that it takes more than one or the other. Both are equally important in getting to the heart of the case. As we learned back in season two with Aliens in a Spaceship, it's not just one person: You take one of us away, and you and Hodgins are in that hole forever.BONES
We also got to see intimate moments: Saroyan" while on camera and Hodgins' baffled eye-rolling response, LOL - Hodgins giving Cam a hilariously incredulous look when Cam mis-guesses about what a particular piece of evidence meant Confused by what Hodgins was telling her, she asked if it meant the victim had been beaten with a fish, LOL; Hodgins stared at her and said, "What?
And when she dismisses him from her office, he wheels away, but not before muttering, "Beaten with a fish Brennan even tells the camera crew that Hodgins once referred to himself as the King of Egypt referring to the room where he and Angela used to hook up -- to which Angela marvelously declares, if Hodgins is the King of Egypt, then she is the Queen, LOL - My favorite humorous moment: Hodgins going on and on about the majesty of the mass spectrometer, and then making me laugh really hard when he sighed happily and said he was thinking about getting one "for the home" I seriously had to pause the episode, I laughed so hard at his earnest and wistful wish These little touches throughout the episode are what made the episode for me.
However, the episode is not without its issues. As stated above, any episode that shines a light on itself via a "documentary"-style approach can come across as winking at the audience. That can be cute and meta or it can seem like they're trying too hard. In this case, there were pieces that I felt the episode leaned on too hard in an attempt to force moments rather than creating more organic reasons for us to see the "behind-the-scenes" stuff. For example, there is NO WAY that a documentary camera crew would be allowed into a Gamblers Anonymous meeting, and certainly not be allowed to pan over all its members.
I suppose if you really want to stretch, you could say that the camera crew talked with each member ahead of time and got them to fill out some sort of release form, allowing them to film the meeting and show their faces. But I really, really doubt they'd be given such access.
This is Bones, where the ridiculous is everyday. Which you know because they are all bald and tattooed. And only accept cash. Even Brennan wants in on this pie action. Obviously these two would decide to order a pie to take home instead of questioning their suspects. Also, this bakery is the same set from t he hipster butcher shop from season 8. This manager dude is so totally the killer because a second person questioned in the murder and b dude has a serious case of crazy eyes.
Brennan says a cash business must be tempting for ex-cons because of course she does. Oh Brennan, you beautiful idiot, you. At this point, I suspect everyone. Doling sass and taking names Seriously, I love Brennan, so hard. I feel like that is the perfect internet meme line. Brennan has no time for your bullshit.
I do appreciate both points — that Cam is vulnerable enough to admit that Arastoo leaving for Iran affects her too. But, I am kind of with Arastoo, too: Jesus, these people at the lab are more compartmentalized than The Container Store.
Again, there is an essay to be written on the similarities between the two women. Someday… LOL, I love when suspects are happy the victim is dead. Calling it like it is, folks. Despite the name, beetles actually prefer wheat to tobacco.
Wow, you sound like your husband. Wow, someone put on their special bitch pants this morning! I mean, I get where Cam is coming from, I do.

That being said… That was awkwardly inserted. Well since you and Arastoo were spotted looking really intense earlier, everyone else is already talking about it. I bet you Angela has already tweeted about this on her secret account I decided she runs last week. Aw, I do like that Cam opens up to Angela. I enjoy how their friendship has developed in the last few years. That being said, I love all the sciency science happening between these two genius ladies right now.
I do not care anymore though. Hell, of this season! Lo and behold, the show proved me wrong! It is so fabulous that my fashion-oblivious father stopped the episode and rewound it just to see the coat in action again.

Look at Cam and Booth riffing on the case! A lot of people are good at hiding [their addiction]. Be still my fangirl heart. I fucking LOVE this you guys.
Cam needs a good friend. Which is the role Booth used to fill for her. She becomes more private and much less willing to discuss her life outside the lab with them, for one thing. None of this is a criticism of the show, by the way. One of my favorite relationship arcs on the show is between these two. Brennan, when were you planning on telling me? Because you are not merely my superior, you are also my friend.
The thought of hurting you…clearly this is not my area of expertise, and for that, I apologize, and hope that you can forgive me. Yeah, I keep mentioning that, but I loved it a lot.
It no longer matters, though. About the time the show started to tell the story of his brother in Iran, I realized I was actively rooting for them. Her love for him is never clearer than the speech she makes in his defense in The Murder in the Middle East: Because your son drank?
