Bones of contention
Thursday, 8.45pm, Seven
YOU can almost forget the case in this episode of the popular crime drama, which is nearly all about relationship issues.
It begins with the return of Daisy to the Jeffersonian after her breakup with Dr Sweets. While Daisy is trying to take an emotionless, ‘‘Bones-like’’ approach to her work, it’s easier said than done, with Sweets still keen to see if the relationship can be mended.
Meanwhile, Booth and Bones discuss funeral arrangements if they were to die and what they would like to happen to them. It’s a rather gloomy topic, but one made light of with quirky humour.
Bringing about the morbid discussion is the case, in which the Jeffersonian team investigates the remains of two bodies found at the same burial plot: one of a female cancer patient; the other, the cancer patient’s ‘‘doula’’, who was guiding her through her grieving process with the illness. It’s a fun whodunit with plenty of twists and turns.
