Bones Season 5 Episode 16 ‘The Parts in the Sum of the Whole’ Recap

   Posted by: admin   in Recaps

Thanks to the mistake Sweets made in his book, we were treated to a flashback with backstory for our favorite squints and co., including Zack, as well as finally getting to see Booth and Brennan’s first case. Of course, these reveals were all overshadowed by the real question of the week: Do Booth and Brennan really truly love each other?

How interesting was it to see Brennan and Booth’s first encounter and see how they worked together on that very first case. The flashbacks scenes showed us how Brennan and Booth were six years ago and it helped highlight how much they have changed since then.


Booth went from “a young and rebellious FBI agent,” as FOX describes him in their official episode description, who had a gambling problem to a more grounded and ex-gambler agent. As for Brennan, she grew a human bone over the years.

I always thought Booth and Brennan’s first encounter was supposed to have been terrible so I never expected them to kiss under the rain and then almost hook up in the past! WTF? is what I said to my TV when I watched the episode, especially since Brennan and Booth didn’t understand each other back then as much as they do now. No matter my reaction, this showed that right from the start, the duo was more than just colleagues.

Back in the present, Sweets pushes Brennan and Booth to make a decision about their relationship. Booth is ready to gamble and take a chance on love. Brennan is not that inclined saying that he needs to be protected from her and that she can’t change. I would have loved to see them hook up in the present as it would have offered the show a new storyline to explore.

However, I understand why the writers decided to have them remain colleagues and friends as the sexual tension will remain and viewers will come back in the hope to see if the duo will eventually take the leap. For sure, both of them, especially Booth since he told Brennan he wanted to find someone who would love him, will resume dating. What’s your take on the relationship? Are you happy with the decision of having Brennan and Booth go their separate ways romantically?
