The perfect Bones (The Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond spoiler)

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.

I too loved this episode. I thought the tension and report between Booth and Bones heralded and return of that which made this series so wonderful in the first place. I am also extatic as to how they opened the possibility of Zack returning - if not to the Jeffersonian, at least to the series.
I have to say though, in reply to the comment that no-one seemed adverse to Zack's presence, that upon review of the episode it is clear that Booth at the very least is not happy to have Zack back in the lab and that Cam is also hesistant at first. Brennan's enthusiasm is understable as she in previous episodes admits to understand how Zack could have become a slave to logic. And Angela and Hodgins' acceptance can be explained by a big heart and a close friendship respectively.
I eagerly await the next instalment to see what shall follow.

the part i loved the most was the end when booth finds bones throwing out her book and then he started quoting some critics and you can tell in their faces that they have something
also i have to note... booth has not had a relationship that we know of since at least season 1. I would like to see that because we have already seen how he reacts to Bones' relationship

I think that this episode was the closest to the standards late-season 3 set for me, as far as the humor goes. Although, Booth seems a lot more protective than ever, and that confused me a little as to why now? Telling off the Agent that was pointing out that there was no head, the publisher, etc. all seemed a little odd to me (but I still loved it!!). And Zack said that he would have to go to jail if anyone found out he didn't do it...Which makes no sense, since if he didn't kill the Lobbyist (sp?), but had only been an accessory, wouldn't his Non Compus Mentus plea still stand, because he was a little out of his mind.
I think Booth's only problem with Zack coming back then was that he had escaped, adn therefore had broken the law. It probably just made him feel guilty. Cam's reaction, to me, seemed a little harsh. "This is bad..." ??? I don't get her problem.
The commercials for this episode were very misleading. I laughed at myself when it turned out she wasnt actually hitting on Wendel.
and Booth has had a relationship...Cam, in season 2.

I loved the tense moment between Booth and Bones at the very end when he finally lets her fix his back. When she puts are arms around him there's just this moment of silence that was so perfect. I'd really love to see Angela and Hodgins work things out though...
