Bones 8.19: The Head in the Toilet

Sorry, couldn't resist.  But the really memorable image from the first part of Bones 8.19 was the victim's head - or what was left it after its incineration - in a toilet, making for one of the best gruesome openers because it was funny as well as gruesome, which is of one the trademarks of Bones.

Meanwhile, the episode itself was delightful, far from being in the toilet, and studded with great lines including Booth "discovering the hatch" (nice reference to Lost), and Booth and Bones referred to as "Mr. and Mrs. Sweets" by the two babes who are shrinks and will be living with Sweets in his new apartment.

Which gets to my favorite part of the story - Sweets moving on to the next stage of his life.  Last time I focused on Sweets, I said I regretted saying that I was glad Sweets and Daisy had split (actually, Sweets left Daisy) because I thought that Daisy was not the best for him.  That is, I regretting saying that Sweets and Daisy were not the right couple, because I was beginning to think I was wrong about that.  And now I'm more certain than ever that they belong together.   And I'm thinking it's just a matter of time - as I said previously, Sweets and Daisy are the new Booth and Bones, needed now on Bones, because the original Booth and Bones are now happy together.   Though, it's going to be hard with Sweets so tempted by his new roommates.  (Yes, he's going to be tempted.  I don't much believe that someone can be just good friends with someone else the first someone finds attractive, and there is no way Sweets won't find his two roommates attractive.  Ok, I'm superficial.)  But the bottom line is I think that Sweets and Daisy will get together in the end.

Back to the other part of the story tonight, it had a good plot, too, with a bunch of survivalists the likely culprits.   Lead cannonballs, animal tranquilizers, and all manner of fine touches abound.   And for some reason, my favorite little touch tonight is Cam and Angela really getting a kick out of Hodgins' test of the cannonball, but not wanting to let him know it.  Ain't that just the kick in the head that's life?
