Favourite Episode: 17 – The Doctor in the Den, 20 – Mayhem on a Cross
After the chilling season finale of season three, it was hard to see how the Bones cast would return for season four. But, the expansion of the ‘family’ was brilliantly done and actually made me love the series even more. Zack was gorgeous and easy to love, but having the flexibility of multiple interns gave the stories in each episode entirely different and unique flavours. The variety drew me in beautifully.
With the removal of Zack from the storyline and the introduction of the squinterns, this season was able to delve further into the complicated relationship between Booth and Brennan. Their cat and mouse game of love picks up pace and their ability to support and nurture one another is highlighted beautifully throughout the crimes that they investigate.
My least favourite episode of this season is the finale – I struggled to understand its importance and relevance to the rest of the story. It seemed a little contrived and as though the writers were just trying to shake things up.
