The Wedding On "Bones" Was Both A Gift And An Affront To Its Fans

This is the wedding we haven't been waiting for because what's important is that Brennan and Booth are together. Still, pretty exciting that they're getting married!

But when the team is called in to investigate a murder the day before the wedding is scheduled, Hodgins and Sweets immediately start placing bets on how fast the wedding will be canceled.


"Worst friends ever," Cam says.

It's not really clear why they have to solve the case immediately, since it's an old case. But I guess they do!


Hey, remember how Brennan won first place in her school science fair when she was in seventh grade and lost the medal?


And in Season 6, Episode 19, a professional "finder" found it for her because it was important to her and she was sad that she'd lost it?

Like, she lost something that would actually be important to her. A medal. A medal she won for being a genius. And yet she managed to hang on to some wedding dress picture since she was 8? It's the dress she always imagined she'd wear on her wedding day?

Do the writers of Bones even watch the show?

But! Angela takes the reins of the wedding, and she delivers what might be the hokiest line ever on Bones. If you watch the show, you know that's a pretty high bar.


Cyndi Lauper is back as Avalon, Angela's psychic. She sings "At Last" as Brennan walks down the aisle. It is quite moving.


"You are mine at last" seems like a deeply silly thing to sing to two people who cohabit and already have a damn baby together. Still, beautiful.


Bones makes sure no one misunderstands what's going on with this ceremony.


Brennan of all people would recognize that it actually is one man ceremonially handing over a woman to another man as if she's property, but it's fun that she says this.

Booth had written vows, but he tears them up because he is a man of action and when he speaks, he speaks from the heart.


"We have been chasing each other for a long time," he says. "Chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy."

"We caught each other."
