Bones' Rationality Falters

This episode was not a bad one, but there was something that continuously bothered me throughout the episode: The fact that Bones was so set on informing Sweets about Daisy's supposed affair. Bones is a rational person and is continuously telling her coworkers not to jump to conclusions in the cases that they work on, yet she does exactly that when she sees Daisy trying on wedding dresses. The fact that Booth thinks that it could be infidelity makes sense because he often does jump to conclusions in his line of work, but Bones assuming that Daisy is cheating without investigating the facts makes no sense to her characterization what-so-ever. I do feel, though, that her determination and decision to finally tell Sweets was in her character. Her view on psychology and her belief that if people choose to be monogamous they should be honest, makes sense rationally, just not the way she finds out about the supposed infidelity. I don't know how anyone else feels, but it was a pretty big flaw in the writing of her character for this particular episode and I hope they get it right in future episodes.
