Bones Season 9 Episode 2 Review “The Cheat in the Retreat” – The Return of Tony and Roxie

In this episode of Bones, called “The Cheat in the Retreat,” Booth and Brennan go undercover to a marriage retreat as Tony and Roxie, Cam deals with some very serious personal financial issues and Sweets reevaluates his life.

After the extremely serious start to the season we had in last week’s season premiere, it was definitely nice to have one of this show’s signature fun episodes as a way to clear the air a bit. Yes, we all know that Pelant is out there and could attack at any time, but it was great to see Booth and Brennan get the chance to dust off their old alter egos, Tony and Roxie, and play with them for a little while. I loved the fact that the fake identities also gave them a chance to explore some deeper issues, but without getting too maudlin about it. Brennan has truly accepted the fact that Booth can’t marry her. She doesn’t know why and though I won’t say she doesn’t care, she isn’t letting it ruin their relationship. That woman is seriously my hero.
