New episode of "Bones"! (For me, at least.)

For as big of a "Bones" fan as I am, all two of you might be surprised to know that I didn't watch the show until this past March. As a result, I missed three episodes that have not appeared online until now, when they aired as reruns. This proved to be incredibly frustrating during spoiler season since so much information about the killer Gormagon was presented in next week's rerun, "The Knight on the Grid." This week was "The Boy in the Time Capsule," which I also missed, and I'll finally get to watch that one tonight.

None of this "new" evidence will convince me that Zack Addy should have ended up as Gormagon's apprentice, but the writers had noe even made the decision until after the strike, and that first returning episode was "The Verdict in the Story." Pre-"Verdict," Zack's really underused and comes off as much different than the Zack of previous seasons, reason obviously being Iraq. In last week's rerun, "The Intern in the Incinerator," a line that Wendy said supported her Zacksplanation seemed to illuminate Zack's feeling of being unnecessary:

"I was being precise. You used to appreciate that."

Now, as I mentioned, Wendy and I are mostly blind to what is taking place in each other's scripts. But I'll definitely say that Zack's post-Iraq behavior is pretty consistent with PTSD. It's clear the writers wanted to address this, then, soooooo regrettably, let it fall by the wayside after the strike. Such a casualty.

That line even more heavily plays into what I'm going to say about Zack's feelings toward how Brennan has changed and grown away from her roots and how he neither understands or supports that. But...I'll shush now =)

It's been a while since I made my last visit to this blog (right in the end of Bones season 2) I lost a lot. But I will read all posts after that. I got a little surprise to found out all this buzz about Zack destiny. I need to read it all!
