BONES 100th Episode Review "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole"

I had the opportunity to watch the first two episodes of the second half of season five of BONES episodes, "The Bones on a Blue Line" (airing April 1st 2010) and "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole." While "The Bones on a Blue Line" was enjoyable, I am going to skip reviewing it and go straight for "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole" which constitutes the 100th episode of the show.

Now, usually, the 100th episode of a TV show is celebrated with some really cool guest star or a cool storyline that makes for some good promos; rarely do we get to have an episode that changes a show in the most fundamental way. "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole" is one of those episodes that will stand out as being a rare gems that changes the show forever.

In "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole", Bones and Booth go to see Sweets who has just finished his book and concluded that the pair is in love and destined to be with each other. While they disagree with his interpretation, they are actually there to correct him on something else. It turns out that the first time that Bones and Booth worked together was not during the pilot episode but in fact it happened a year earlier. This news frazzles Sweets who then urges them to tell him the whole story to which they oblige. We are then treated to a flashback episode.

During this story telling, we find out a great deal of things about not only B&B (Bones and Booth - yes I am calling them that) but also about the whole crew at the lab as well. It turns out that the first time B&B met, there was some real chemistry there. That chemistry even lead to some intense moments (and when i say "intense", I mean "OMG I can't believe I just saw that" intense). We also get to see how Angela and Brennan started becoming friends. We also get to see Hodgins and Zach before they became best buds. Finally, we see Cam, who oddly enough was pretty much the same person that she is right now.

This is one of the best eps i have seen. At last, no more BS! I can't tell you how old it was getting for Booth to keep his feelings a secret. The ending may not have been the fairy tail ending but at least we didn't get jibbed with another lame dream or fantasy story line. Something needs to spark a few truths for Bones still but for now it's a step in a positive direction. Well done! I really enjoyed the flash back!
