BONES: 4.16 “The Salt in the Wounds”
Ok, ok. No, High School Musical did not go preggo, but how can you resist such a heading when a certain Monique Coleman (Taylor from the HSM movies) shows up pregnant? Not only that, but her baby daddy is another Disney Channel brat?
So last night’s episode sounded very familiar. A pregnancy pact in high school? Where did I last hear that? Oh yeah: The Gloucester High School pregnancy pact! Of course!
Talk about ripped from the headlines. At least a murder wasn’t involved.
The murder itself was a little convoluded. By the end, I had some trouble connecting the dots. But I did enjoy seeing Angela and Sweets try to be a married couple. I think we’ve learned never to have them do that again.
Speaking of Angela, what’d we think about her relationshippal status change this week? I really want to see her and Hodges back together, but sadly, I dont’ think it will be happening any time soon. I’m glad they hooked up, though; my first question when they dashed off together was, why would you want to see your ex-fiance right after you got dumped?
Her reaction to Bones’ agreement, though, was different. She was really disturbed that Bones, who is less emotional than a pile of bricks (yes, I’m using the bricks analogy a lot lately), agreed that Angela was living her life correctly. This was a wakeup call for Angela, who might not want to be as detached as Bones. I wonder if we’ll be seeing a different Angela–or maybe just a morphing Angela–from here on out.
I must say one other shout-out to the new intern this week. I thoroughly enjoyed him, though I thought Bones’ treatise on his religious practices was unnecessary.
The best part of the episode, though, was Booth’s chat with the father of four to-be babies. It was really a wakeup call to this kid, and you know, it really needed to be said. Not just to him, but to many kids out there. Not that I think he was trying to be Mr. After School Special to the viewing audience, but it really did hit home. This kid had no idea what he had done and how his future could be changed.
Plus, perhaps it’s something we’ll be looking into in the future. Foreshadowing baby daddies and such. I’m not spoiling here. I’m speculating.
I can’t spoil when the spoilers I hear are vague!
