Well I have to say I think the Bones and Booth relationship just cranked it up by a smidgen of a degree... "Do all boys keep their masturbatory aids in their shoes or is that just you?" "Well that's for me to know and you to find out" little bit risque anyone? And then as if that wasn't suggestive enough we had Wendell Bray standing a little to close to the bone table when under the impression his new boss was trying to seduce him. The boy who played Wendell deserves extreme kudos for this episode, underplayed and perfectly bemused Michael Terry's blank stares and panicked remarks to Angela had me blowing Irn Bru (a kind of Soda) through my nose. And trust me that was just the peak of the ice berg in terms of hilarity in this episode, I smiled from ear to ear throughout; it was heart warming and confirmed my belief that "Bones" is back where it should be.
What I found even more satisfying was how all this mirth was punctuated by sad moments like Hodgin's meeting with Zack in the asylum,then there was poor Hodgins and his inability to move to Zack's space or be nice to Cam... Wendell leaving the examination area knowing he could never keep a job there and When Zack had to leave the Diner
Now the big theme in this episode was Zack. I was a little shocked at how happy everyone was to see Zack, I think it's strange that there is no conflict whatsoever in the Jeffersonian the only person who seems to see Zack as a killer is Sweets and ironically he's now the only one who knows that he isn't. Which brings me along to say "WOW" I never saw that one coming... I was taken aback and quite pleased to know that although Zack went along with a cannibal mad man and made him some creepy dentures he never actually killed another human being. Does this mean that this robotic yet endearing anthropologist could be returning to the Jeffersonian in future seasons?
The ending... it was perfect, it was one of those oh so electric moments between Booth and Bones that reminds you why you started watching this show all those years ago.
This was a quick sharp episode which held my attention, made me smile and most of all made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. Sadly this episode held up to the first two of the season only goes to show how poor they are in comparison.
