So it’s really happening. Angela and Hodgins are moving to Paris. On the one hand, I’m very happy that Angela’s dreams are coming true. But on the other hand, I don’t want to see her go. They are a big part of the show, ‘Bones’ won’t be the same without them.
We finally know Angela’s real name, Pookie Noodlin! Why on earth did her dad name her that?! Now we understand why she didn’t want anyone to know. She must have had a horrible childhood growing up with that name.
The case was really going on in the background this week. Booth’s 30 day sobriety was a big fixture. Everyone wanted to make a big deal about it except Booth. Aubrey was trying to commend him for his work with everything going on and mention his 30 days, but he didn’t want to talk about it. Booth wouldn’t even invite Brennan to go. It wasn’t until Cam said it was okay for her to leave to attend that she even realized she should be there. It was nice that in the end she went.
Booth and Brennan were getting back to a better rhythm this week. They almost forget they were separated when they were eating pie.
The big thing in this episode was of course Hodgins taking the plunge and buying the house in Paris. I don’t know which was more heartbreaking, Angela telling Brennan or Hodgins and Angela telling Cam.
Brennan couldn’t wrap her head around why Angela would even want to leave. Everything she knows is here, she said. Angela has been there through everything for Brennan and even offered to postpone moving until Booth and her are doing better. It was hard to watch. Brennan really doesn’t want Angela to go.
If Brennan’s reaction wasn’t hard enough, Cam was also heartbroken. The look on her face just crushed me.
Angela and Hodgins aren’t gone yet, maybe there’s still hope! They are still in the season finale and they will be facing an old foe. Pelant is back, but wheat can he do from beyond the grave. Booth also declares that this is his last case. So how will there be another season with no Booth, Hodgins or Angela? There must be something to pull them all back in. Take a look at the promo:
