Show/Episode: Bones 10x10, “The 200th in the 10th—Feels like the First Time”
Ship: Booth and Bones
**Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Bones, including last night's 200th Episode.**
Right off the bat, we're not in Kansas anymore, as a 1950s' style newsreel presents us with vintage versions of Emily Deschanel and David Boreanz celebrating their tenth movie together. What strange new world have we fallen into?
It's the 200th episode of Bones, a Hitchcockian minimovie with a midcentury flavor. Just go with it. We're talking total alternate universe here and the attention to detail is gorgeous. Booth is a jewel thief and Bones the cop hot on his tail, in more ways than one. Bones follows Booth to a posh mansion, where a dead body turns everything upside down. Bones gets called on the carpet by her boss, police chief and dad, Max. He wants her gun and badge, but she's adamant to prove herself as a good detective anyway. Her first stop? Waiting for oh so suave Booth in his bachelor abode. Oh the classy chemistry, so smooth, so restrained, but still smoldering. Bones knows of the perfect way to save her career and Booth's life; they can work together to find the real killer. The unlikely allies toast to their new partnership.
