They are one of my fav ships. It’s the angst,the love, the chemistry and how everything works together that made me fall in love with them. For my first scene, I chose the rose scene. They don’t say anything but their facial expressions say it all. He wanted to be there for her by offering her rose. For my second scene, I chose the one after Hodgins was buried alive with Brennan. It shows his vulnerability and her comforting her. For my third one, I chose how they assure each other that together they are stronger and can face anything that come in their way. For my last scene, I chose them fighting and how much anger he had post losing his ability to walk. I think this scene symbolized that now she wanted to be there for him versus the first scene i chose where he wanted to be there for her.
i just finished watching Bones & tho im emotional and sad it ended i feel some sort of peace? I think it has to do with the fact that the finale was perfect. It was so beautifully wraped up that i’m happy about how this amazing characters ended their journeys, and i have like 0 complaint or dissapointmeant. Booth & Brennan ended together, walking those Jeffersonian gardens like in the pilot, having their perfect family and loving what they do. “Where you go i go, always” that line was so them, and not to mention Booth’s speech which was perfect, It was the summary of all those little details that made them who they are and it was a reminder that they never should forget about that “This is you, Temperance Brennan, you are my partner, don’t forget that”. Brennan, who lost a family and thought she’d never belong to one again, found herself with one of her own who loves her uncondicionally. Booth found that person he wanted to spend 30, 40 or 50 years with. Angela & Hodgins have another baby on their way, and Hodgins is oficially king of the lab! Cam is starting her own family. Aubrey stayed in D.C and got promoted, and despite being sad that he didn’t end up with Jessica (i truly do not understand why they did that) im okay bc at least they made it seem like he still had someone. They mentioned Sweets, and how he knew, because as Booth & Brennan said he was the reason they got togehter, and i love how the story makes it evident how without Sweets none of them would be where they are in many ways.
Im gonna miss this show so much, and i know i haven’t been as long a fan as some other people but it stil hold a very meaningful part of my heart. It’s truly a fantastic journey to ride in, and i loved it.
They were a couple (MARRIED!), happy and in love, with not one but two kids, for HALF of the show. No breakups, no cheating (not even suspected cheating), no jealousy… just outside drama that they tackled together.
Even with the gambling storyline, it fit with the character of Booth, and they did not split. He just had to get help to be able to come back home. That was completely realistic and Brennan was there for him to encourage him every step of the way.
For a drama that was centered around a will they/won’t they couple following the era of X-Files and Moonlighting, that is massive. Hell, most COMEDIES aren’t this lucky either. And Bones had not one, but two long term couples.
Bones beat the Moonlighting Curse with to a bloody pulp and Brennan buried it, without a trace. LOL
Hodgela ❤️ Yet another couple who have been through hell and back together, and have come out stronger despite the odds. What I love most about Hodgela is that while their journey from friends to lovers to an engaged couple happened in such a short timeframe, no one questioned their love or commitment to each other back then because they too, were always meant to be. Of course, an ex husband, a break up, Roxie, Wendell and several eons later, these two realised that themselves and thankfully, got married (in a jail cell no less). I have to say, that the day they spent in the jail cell represents some of my favourite Hodgela moments of the series, and their pregnancy arc in season 6 is a definite favourite, along with Hodgins’ paralysis storyline of course. I am so glad that after everything they’ve been through, particularly recently, they are now as solid as ever, if not more so. ‘We’re gonna live together and we’re gonna love together and we’re gonna have so much fun, and a little pain, and we’re gonna live a life that’s gonna make other people die with jealousy, wishing they were us.’ Hell yeah you two are ❤
