They need to get Carla Gallo back on the show more. She's insanely funny in her clueless ways of thinking she is part of the inner circle. Love it whenever she over-shares what is on her mind making everyone uneasy about what she is talking about. More! As for the episode, as it has been the case the past few seasons, the crime scenes are the least interesting things about the show. It's all about the interpersonal relationships and I was waiting for Bones to be able to crack the exterior of Booth and figure out that Pelant is behind the fact that Booth can't marry her. The final shot of the episode shows that Pelant is in fact still watching them through their kitchen appliances.

Cool seeing Freddie Prinze Jr. pop up on this one. I get the feeling that his character may be a recurring one and that Booth will call on him to help track down Pelant once and for all.

Decent episode. Best part of course was Booth and Bones heading to a Marriage Retreat undercover, using their alter-ego Tony and Roxie to great effect. A couple of hams for sure, enjoying playing 'Italian' stereotypes. It was funny for sure. The crime itself wasn't all that engaging. But I did like the the eventual killers turned out to be the old Happily married couple, who don't quite fit the profile of killers. Not sure what they are doing with Sweets as he is leaving on 'vacation' time. My guess is that he will spend this time hunting down Pelant on his own.

Even though it was obvious that the kid would turn out to be the killer, it was still a solid episode. As for Sweets, I'm hoping that it's just good writing that is making it appear that he is leaving for good. I don't want the character to leave and John Francis Daley brings a lot to the table as to why the show is as good as it is. So, that's why I'm hoping that the end was just a way to throw off the viewer by making it appear that he is done with the FBI, but in fact he is working to find Pelant.

Kinda shocked that they resolved the Pelant arc so soon. I had it in my head that the entire season would be a cat and mouse game between both sides, culminating in the Season Finale. The other thing that took me by surprise was the revelation that Pelant was in love with Bones and that his endgame was to get her to love him instead of Booth. I knew that he admired Bone's mind, but I never suspected it was more than that.

It's very rare that we get to see the victim throughout an entire episode of Bones. Because we get that here, we are able to sympathize and take an even greater interest in solving the case. It's one thing to "have a face" from Angela, but it's another to see the actual victim talking throughout. Steven Eckholdt was great in the role. I haven't seen him in anything since his time on Friends. Anyway, I liked his 'Bucket List' involving Chuck "The Iceman' Liddell. Funny stuff. Great to see Dr. Wells return. Awesomely annoying intern, which in itself creates more humorous situations since he doesn't have any kind of filter and just rubs people the wrong way the moment he opens his mouth.

I'm really not a fan of 'Wedding' Episodes because they seem to happen all the time on every show I watch and they are all pretty much the same. But every once in a while, someone gets it right and in the case of Bones, they nailed it. Loved how the opening shot with Brennan walking down the aisle to Cyndi Lauper singing 'At Last'. She was phenomenal. I also loved how the scene was shot and edited together. Great callback scene when Brennan addresses the episode where she and Hodgins were buried alive. Her 'letter to Booth' was awesome. Great inside joke about 'Angel' as well.

Also making this episode a memorable one was the return of pretty much everyone. Ryan O'Neal, Ralph Waite, Joanna Cassidy and the entire Intern Crew, marking on the second time the entire crew shared the same scene. Well, there was one missing. The clothes they all end up wearing to the wedding was funny......and perfect for the occasion. Nice casting choice in getting Emily's real life husband David Hornsby as the Priest.

Meh. Episode was okay. But I will give the writers props for switching it up at the end and having the Mortician as the killer of the Nazi and furthermore, making it so they were related to each other. I was certain that it was the young, hot wife that killed him. But beyond that, there really wasn't much else in the episode that added to the story.

Severed heads. Charred bodies. Decomp soup. But the most disgusting thing this show has ever produced was a "cute" little fly coming out of Hodgin's neck. Next Halloween, I will be going as a giant Hodgin's neck, because there isn't anything scarier than that. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarf. Nasty!

I find it humorous that in cases than not, the accused murderer will protest his innocence for pretty much the entire episode all the way to the very end and then cop to something that he thinks is innocent and won't come back to bite him / her in the ass. Sure enough, the Soccer player who is under house arrest admits that he snuck out of the house using a disguise, just so that he could "get some air". Is there really anyone this dumb in life that would actually admit to this? It's one thing when it's a character, but I'd be stunned to learn that these admissions happen in real life.

Gross. This is making me reevaluate the idea of ever buying another canned food item ever again. Easily the best part of the episode was seeing Bones, Cam, Angela, Daisy and Caroline dressed up in tacky Cowgirl outfits, ending up in a Biker Bar and throwing down against Biker Chicks. Something I never thought I'd see on the show. Me thinks they are setting up a possible romance between Dr. Wells and Daisy, which is both odd and totally right for the show.

Best part of the episode is the final scene where the father who is a physicist maps out his daughters entire life by way of equations on a chalkboard. I have no idea if what was written on the board was really reflecting this because mathematical equations of any kind is so far out of my realm. But the idea of what the scene represented was touching, especially seeing how it affected both the father and Bones herself.

A great episode that ends with a thud. What the f*ck! The ending is one of the most ambiguous endings ever. There was no resolution at all and when it was over, I was expecting it to cut to a commercial or at least a title card that said ".....to be continued". So, I'm really at a loss for words in how they chose to end it. With that said, the only explanation I can think of is that the Wife is in fact the Ghost Killer and will be on another killing spree, which would mean that she can't "get caught" in this episode. My theory is that it's either the wife or the female Gardner being the Ghost Killer. I only say the Gardner, but I think the Wife is just too obvious a choice.

Seems that Bones isn't immune from the idea of capitalizing on the popularity of Country music. The episode itself was okay and surprisingly is has nothing to do with not liking country. It was kind of a by the numbers mystery. Wasn't bad, but it wasn't entirely memorable either.

I'm normally not a fan of the premise that uses the "rich girl fakes her own kidnapping to extort money because she has Daddy issues" plot line. But I gotta hand it to the writers of this one for making it somewhat original, especially her demise and how she ends up buried. When it played out, I immediately ruled out that she was behind it, given that she was basically DOA. I really liked the B Story involving Hodges finding out he has a long lost Brother. The final scene with them bonding was pretty good.

Average episode. But it was a nice change of pace in giving Freddie Prinze Jr. a somewhat sizable role, even if the case at hand was meh.
