So I needed an outlet. Super badly. I'm warning you, if you don't read spoilers...stop reading this right now.
Let me just start this off by stating the obvious: What the HELL are they doing to Booth's character?! I really valued his character and admired him because despite Brennan's hyper-rational tendencies, he rarely showed frustration toward her and that was part of what I really loved about Booth and Booth/Brennan together. I loved the fact that he was so protective of her and careful with her and he was really sensitive toward all of her vulnerabilities. That was a lot of what makes them so amazing. But in season 6, Booth seems frustrated, impatient, and at times RUDE to Brennan. He rarely looks her in the eye which is the most hypocritical thing he could do since according to the season 5 finale, he taught Brennan the importance of eye contact. Also, last episode (I'm sure you guys all understand my frustration here) was ridiculous. They completely went against Booth's character. Leaving all of his friends, including Brennan, for SEX?! and being okay with Brennan lying to them for that reason?! Old Booth would NEVER be okay with that. He'd never be that selfish and he would never be okay with lying. He can't pretend to be surprised? MY ASS, BOOTH.
Next, if you guys read spoilers, there is a new one out that says Booth and Sweets are ring shopping. There is also a script out and during that scene Booth says something like: "I don't care what you do, Sweets. I love Hannah and I'm going for it. That one. I want that one." This is what prompted me to write this article. A few of us --- ;) --- are about to explode because we are so angry. Not only are they ruining Booth's character, they're making people HATE him. I, for one, don't think THIS^^ Booth is worthy of Brennan. I'm starting to really get frustrated and I actually wish that Brennan will get a love interest.
Oh, and episode 9 is supposed to be big and Brennan is supposed to do something that causes tension between Booth, Hannah, and herself. What is this? They LOVE toying with us. Apparently it can't be TOO big since a few episodes later, Booth is ring shopping for Hannah. I swear, I will shit a brick if they have Brennan tell Booth she wants to be with him and he denies her. I WILL BE CRUSHED. It's truly disappointing. I can't even look forward to episode 9 anymore because I know that apparently it doesn't even make a difference what Brennan does. And don't even get me started on how unbelievably CLICHE this is. I guarantee everyone reading this can think of a situation they've seen on TV where the girl or guy in a couple denies the other (even tho it's obvious they love them), they "move on" (but not really), the other comes back and realizes they made a mistake in not taking advantage before, the person is too afraid to be vulnerable again (plus their pride is hurt), so they propose to their current gf/bf to avoid being hurt again--EVEN THOUGH IT IS PAINFULLY OBVIOUS THAT THEY ARE STILL IN LOVE WITH THE FIRST PERSON. The couple I think of that had this is Leyton. I always said 'nooo, they'd never do that..it's painfully unoriginal"...Well apparently i'm wrong and it's looking like Booth will propose.
ANND. I'm beginning to just really want Brennan to move on. I can't stand her being in pain any longer. :( I hate it and it'll be the death of me.
I've been saying that 'HH has a plan, keep the faith, he'll make all of this suffering worth it'. I still believe that, but I now believe that people are going to stop watching before that plan becomes apparent. It's stupid that those of us who are sticking with it no matter what and SUFFERING THE MOST, are not going to be able to be rewarded because viewers are dropping like flies. People are done waiting and I believe an engagement between Booth and Hannah will be HORRIBLE for the show. People WILL give up on it. I'm not one of those people because I cannot just stop watching since I KNOW that B&B are meant to be, but people who have two shows that they love that are airing at the same time aren't going to watch Bones when we're getting stuff like this. It makes me so madddd!
I am now even more frustrated than when I started, so I guess it didn't work. :S
Well, I need a spark of hope SOON. I'm not gonna stop watching, but I might have to be checked into an institution soon. Thanks Hart Hanson and writers, you're responsible for my insanity and depression.
