'Bones' recap: Bridezilla and Dr. Burn in Hell

So much to talk about, where do we begin... How many of you had to put down your pasta while watching this episode? Definitely one of the bloodiest we've seen. The case was a dead Bridezilla, who'd been run over by an SUV -- twice. I'm always a fan of the Angelator, but that recreation of the smushed head -- ewwwwwwww. Was it her fiancee or her maid of honor (guest star Mayim Bialik!?, pictured) behind the wheel? No. And I'm sorta disappointed that we didn't get to see Booth seriously interrogate the latter. I miss that Blossom sass. Was it her ex-fiancee, who was named Joe Fillion (a shoutout to David Boreanaz's buddy Nathan, who he thinks is doing a hit-and-run on Bones with ABC's Castle)? No. He just happened to hit a dog the week before, which is why they found a black hair in his tire. (That, and because a guy who broke down talking about the incident wouldn't have thoroughly washed the memory of it away?) Or was it Owen Smith, the last guy the cheating bride met using a dating service that sends a picture of any potential match within 100 yards to your cell phone and allows you to choose "Date or Hate," and if both parties select "Date," then sends you the other person's cell number? Sorta. She said "Date" to a composite photograph the creator of the service forged because he's tired of these women who say they want a "funny, smart, successful guy" not giving him the time of day. (Note: They did not say "honest.") He drove up to meet her in the alley of the Champagne Lounge, and when she flipped him the bird, he snapped and ran her down.

For a minute, I thought the message of the episode was that any kind of dating service -- online or on cell -- was bad. But really, it was that when Brennan behaves like such a dick that you start to dislike her, it's because she's insecure and jealous of someone. At a bridal shop where the Bridezilla got into a shoving/slapping match with a consultant, Brennan and Booth saw Sweets' girlfriend Daisy trying on a gown and hugging a man that was not her "Lancelot." Brennan, naturally, wanted to tell Sweets. Booth didn't. Okay, I know that some groom's do actually go dress shopping with their fiancees (which is just wrong) because I watch TLC's Say Yes to the Dress. But I think the norm is still for most couples to be afraid of the bad luck that results -- or simply to want that great moment when the groom sees the bride for the first time at the far end of the aisle and smiles so big that there's no doubt the couple will make it. Why were B&B so sure that was Daisy's fiancee with her and that she was getting some on the side with Sweets?
