If you were a casual fan tuning in I am not suprised that Brennan is getting hated on. She really did come across that she didn't give a crap to Booth, their relationship or how he missed out on 3mths of his daughters life. Total writing fail.

@wendi Except Booth hater that you are. Your dearly beloved Brennan Bitch said that she hated her life on the run. And it was a prison to her. That's right "got away with murder smarmy smug Max" is so much better. Oh please. Shssh...

I be totally happy if Booth got joint custody of Christine and found a new love. He is way to good for Brennan. Let her live the lonely iife she is drawn to.

What I can't get my head around or reconcile is how Brennan in the premier hated her life on the run. She dearly missed Booth. She showed Christine photos of Booth.........to this selfish insensitive b*tch in the 2nd ep. Who didn't care if Booth was a part of her life. That she would do it alone. That she couldn't grasp how much Booth missed Christine. That it hurt him. What kind of Vulcan is she? SMH

It's about time Brennan rebelled against control-freak Booth. He's so controlling and she's been more than patient, especially since her pregnancy. Being on the run for a while must have been a relief. Her father is much more adept at dealing with her than Booth. His arrogance is far from charming, a trait Max has in spades.

Most of the posters here seem down on Brennan. If one can't stand to see a strong, opinionated, highly intelligent person - who is a woman, no less - they why aren't they watching drivel like Dancing With the Stars? I identify with Angela, she sees the flaws but loves the person. Booth just wants to change her into his "little housewife" ideal.

The conflict is one of the things that make this show but we need more of Angela, Hodkins, Sweets, Caroline, Daisy and the other characters. Take a lesson from the show "Criminal Minds"... all the characters have their backstory and time to shine.

Moxieggirl, Kayla, Sharon, The Watcher, I agree with your points wholeheartedly. It's the subtleties that many who are fussing and angry with Brennan are overlooking.
Brennan is not the same person and neither is Booth-so to the one former fan who stopped watching because he thinks Brennan is still same "clueless" person should take another look! Wow there hasn't been this much buzz on this site for sometime. So whether agree or disagree, it's good that so many are watching and giving feedback! Good job Hanson & co. and great work David, Emily and the cast of Bones!

I thank you for all your comments. I had decided to stop watching the show because it was turning into a "family" program instead of a "crime" show. But if it is true that Brennan is still the socially clueless person after seven years, there is no reason to continue to put up with her week after week. Last year, i was convinced that Hart Hanson was trying to kill off the show so he could devote all his time to developing his new... The Finder. Well that didn't work out, but he apparently has not given up on taking Bones to the dumpster.

Okay, everyone, this is getting a tad bit silly. After all, these actors are simply delivering the lines written for them -- they are not their own words. And they are not really Booth and Brennan, although the fact that you see them as that is a compliment to the writers and the actors. I say cudos to them all. They had you angry and annoyed and I'm willing to bet that was the plan. It's a great TV show and I'm guessing you all like it or you wouldn't be watching it.

I very much appreciated this episode. It was authentic and mature. I'm impressed that it wasn't tied up in a nice neat bow at the end and that Brennan and Booth acknowledge that they still have a lot to work on.

Married 15 years, my husband and I have been where they are though under different circumstances. It's uncomfortable. You don't know if the relationship is gonna make it or how it's gonna work ... but then you get honest and you go back to what you're both committed to and you get through it; not over it, or around it, but through it. And it's messy, sometimes painful, and it affects the people around you. But it is worth it.

It was good that she went to Sweets, reached out for support. It felt like avery mature episode to me. The ending was priceless … and … again … genuine and realistic... amazingly sweet.

My husband would make a comment about farting, too. That was hilarious. The humor between two people who are struggling is sometimes the glue that keeps them together. At least, it has been for us.

I don't know how the rest of the world feels about this episode … but I, for one, give it a huge thumbs up.

Wow! Great writing. After reading the reviews I believe you really got people thinking and reacting. I do think you were trying to show Bones working on being a more considerate person. I watch the same show as these other people and each one of us saw something different. Yes it was human reactions. Yes it was two people working on issues. I didn't like how either one of the B's were acting. That's how people grow, by learning what upsets their mates. I agree with the Watcher and Kayla on their prespective. Hang in there. I really like Mr. Abernathy. love this show. How about letting Brennan grow a little more down to earth?
