Mark your calendars 'Bones' fans, the show will air its 100th episode on April 8! To celebrate this milestone, the cast and crew, as you can see from the picture above, celebrated and the network ensured medias would cover this very special episode by sending a press kit our way.
Shows go out of their way to offer us extra special episodes when they turn milestones such as 100. Can't wait for April 8 to get the dish on this fantastic episode? Here comes my preview!
I've been reading fan comments these past weeks to various posts made about the series' 100th episode, titled 'The Parts in the Sum of the Whole,' and I can tell you expectations are sky high. You'll be happy to know that the episode delivers the goods. However, the last scene may receive mixed reactions from fans.
The episode takes us back the first case Brennan and Booth's worked on together; you know, the one way before the case shown in the pilot episode? The duo recount their first case together to Sweets as he made a huge mistake in his book on Booth and Brennan's partnership.
As expected, the show is mainly set in the past. In the flashbacks, Booth is a young and rebellious FBI agent who still has issues with gambling, Brennan is... Brennan but even with less emotions and compassion, Angela is a street artist who is brought on the case, and Cam is a NY coroner who points Booth in the right direction. As a fan of the buddy relationship Hodgins and Zach had in the past, I particularly liked this episode as it explained how the two came to be a duo and why/how they started to do experiments. Caroline also makes her way in the flashbacks. Sweets remains in the present.
The "past" case of the week is an excuse to tackle the real issue at hand: the feelings Booth and Brennan have or don't have towards one another. As I was watching the episode, I couldn't help myself but think what my answer would be to the question "Do I want Booth and Brennan to be a couple at this stage of the series or not?" You'll have to watch to make your own decision and see what the writers have cooked up for us.
No matter if you are a Booth/Brennan shipper or not, you'll love this milestone episode as it's filled with show mythology and brings Zach back to the fold... even if it's only for an episode.
The 100th episode will air on April 8 so mark your calendars as it is a must-see episode. After it airs, come back to here to read my review and post your comments.
