I just watched this past week's Bones episode. I'd say that was sufficiently creepy, more than your average Bones episode. Even though I knew what Booth was doing before they strung up the body, the way they lingered on it was pretty creepy. As was the final scene in Booth and Brennan's house, with Christine going toward her closet. Every young kid's nightmare. *shudder*
What I didn't like was how they barely used Hodgins. It felt a little like, "Here's Hodgins' token crabby scenes, to further show that he's being a jerk and pushing Angela and everyone else away." And then we never see him again the rest of the episode. What kind of storytelling is that?
I know it's supposed to be months of physical therapy gone by, so Angela has lost her compassion for him, especially when he keeps making everything about being paraplegic. But I feel like because we didn't get to see those initial months after he first got injured and found out about his paralysis, we aren't getting to see his struggle. Instead they're just treating him like, oh, that's Hodgins, such a jerk, everyone be mad at him, Angela's such a victim being yelled at by her jerk husband, let's all feel sorry for her, not him. I just wish we'd see at least one person - if not Angela, because it's too complicated for her, then someone else on the team - trying to reach out to him, speak up to him without sarcasm or attitude like he should just get over it already. Even if Hodgins still pushes back and isn't ready to be receptive, I just wish we'd see someone trying to be on his side. But once again, it's more about Angela and her pain. And Hodgins is just "being a jerk." I don't like that. I want to see more of TJ. And I want to see his character's story. Not these brief snippets. It feels like something's missing. They're not focusing on him, even though it's his story.
It's not enough focus on Hodgins!
(But then that's nothing new. It's never enough Hodgins for me. *GRIN*)
