First Thing:

** this is the most spoilery thing***

Has my f-list read this spoiler re: the finale, and if so what do we think?  HERE

I just don't know what to make of things, and every pre-conceived idea about what I expected to see is out the window.  For those that are spoiled, I'd love to hear your reactions.


Second Thing:

Fic Rec!!!  For fic that explores what we could very well see in the finale: Here by ygrawn

Seriously... I just can't decide. I have generated so many theories and speculated until my brain is an absolute mush of Bones-ness. I woke up Saturday morning with a theory that I thought was DEAD ON. I was sure that I'd figured it out. Then I read that report from the extra and it totally sunk my theory. *sigh* I came up with another theory... 'cause all I do anymore is think up crackpot theories for how this can possibly work... and you can read that theory here here if you want.

I just... ugh... I hate the thought of them getting together just for the sake of procreation... I hate that there is going to be more misdirection and covering up and not just being freaking honest about how they feel about each other. In one of Emily's latest interviews it specifically says that it won't be about love. So... bleh. I just feel icky about it all right now. I'm trying to stay positive and look at the brightside... but... when I read something like the fic that you linked... it makes me HURT so much for Booth... and I really don't want to have to see that. You know??? It makes my heart hurt to think about Booth having to stuff his feelings down and put his heart in a box.

Plus I just have problems that Brennan is going to resort to sex for procreation when there are more scientifically reliable methods available. I just can't wrap my mind around WHAT is going to motivate that decision. So... in light of that, I'm hoping that SOMETHING happens to make it all make sense to me.

How about you??? What are your thoughts right now?

I'm waaaaay behind on Bones eps, but I've heard a bit about the finale, etc., and all I can say is YES to what you said.

Thank you. There are times when I feel like I'm all alone thinking... Okay... I can understand a woman exercising her right to change her mind about wanting kids. I know enough women who have done that to think that's totally rational. And, yeah... I can even understand her wanting someone as exemplary as Booth to be the dad... but knowing what we do about how Booth feels about not being a full time dad to Parker... I just can't imagine her telling him she wants to have his baby, yet have him not be involved... ESPECIALLY as involved as he already is in her life. He'd be seeing the kid all the time. Brennan can be a little socially awkward, but she's a human being and she KNOWS Booth. So... I'm thinking that the not wanting him involved part has got to be some kind of misunderstanding.

And then there is the ick factor that they are going to somehow decide that the best way to go about getting her pregnant is through sex??? So Booth is withholding his sperm unless he gets sex??? And Brennan agrees??? Okay... that has GOT to be wrong.

And poor you... you just got deluged in one of my rants... and all you did was agree with me. I'm sorry. :-)) Are you getting caught up??? Or are you starting to feel like it's all a lost cause?

I am totally in the "icky" phase right now. Nothing my brain can generate from the spoilers I've read makes me happy. And did you read the ED interview where she mentioned a possible "love triangle" involving Jared? That is positively disgusting.

Her wanting Booth's sperm makes sense to me. I get that. I can even accept her changing her mind about a baby. But the procreational sex - that just refuses to gel.

I know that The Powers That Be have said this will not be a hallucination or a dream but we know that there are hallucinations and that there is a dream sequence. Surely in the midst of all that B&B don't just say, "Hey let's have procreational sex because Booth hallucinated at the sperm bank - oh yeah, forget that he probably has a BRAIN TUMOR - and even though we're work partners and friends and he already has an illegitimate child this will be no big deal."

Am I nuts for thinking that there has to be some huge twist or catch and this really can't happen that way?

I promise I will come back and address the rest of what you just said... but have you seen the promo pics for the finale???

I'm currently resisting... but I really don't think I'm going to make it much longer... EVERYONE is squeeing. I'm weak.

Oh God... I know... the "Love Triangle" thing made me make the biggest WTF face. Just... Ugh... NO!

And we know that he's in surgery at some point during CitC... how is he going to be recovered enough by EitB to be engaging in sex of any kind... much less the fact that DB said on the NHL interview that it was "Aggressive" lovemaking. O_o How??? DUDE you're recovering from SURGERY!!!! So is there going to be some kind of flashforward???

And it just makes me sick!!! Poor Booth takes fatherhood so seriously... Brennan freaking KNOWS that... and while they've had her do some WTF things this season... suddenly she's totally disregarding how much it KILLS Booth to not be a part of Parker's life EVERY DAY, and ask him to make a baby with her that, due to their partnership he'll be in continuous contact with but won't be a part of it's life??? SERIOUSLY WTF WRITERS???

And I know that you're right and HH said no dream sequence, no hallucination, no alcohol... it's real... but HOW??? And WHY??? And am I even going to care at the end... or am I going to be so heatsick that I just give up.

I want to have faith... I DO!!!! And you know... part of me does, part of me is completely convinced that they are the best freaking masterminds of mindfuckery ever!!! Part of me is so totally sure that I'm going to get done watching this and be completely amazed at the originality because it's a twist that none of us saw coming...

But that part is pretty small and keeps getting shouted down by the part that keeps screaming, WTF WRITERS???

That part of me that has faith, etc. is currently being shouted down by the part that wants to write in all caps about this issue so I totally understand :)

I've read loads about the finale - all the sides leading up to it, every interview and I have a pretty good idea of what this is all about. But I don't know if you are that spoiled or want to be.. so I will wait for your OK before spilling the beans!

I think I'm pretty much totally spoiled, but I have skipped a few sides here and there because they ruin parts for me that I really wasn't interested in at first. Please PLEASE share your ideas. I feel like it's a train wreck I can't look away from.

I NEED to write this down! I think I might post about it as other people have asked too - but I won't get a chance to tonight. Have you seen the spoiler HQ pics from the finale yet? They are posted over at 206_bones

I'm trying not to look at them. I really want to abstain and just be completely surprised... but there is so much squee right now that I'm fairly certain that I'm going to fail miserably.

I, too, am dying to know your speculation on what's going to happen.

Don't resist, Britt. The DB hotness is epic. The pics will spoil you if you haven't read any spoilers but if you read the one I posted from the extra's blog then you're cool. Nothing really new from that.

Okay... I just can't stop chanting OMG OMG OMG!!!

Seriously...

OMG.

The dream sequence part is, at least, going to be epic fun.

I'm I just dumb? Not to sound like Bones, but I have a doctorate and the spoilers for this ep still don't make sense.

I mean, I get the dream sequence part. (Or some sort of anesthesia-induced hallucination or whatever.) But what about the baby-making sex? Where exactly does that fit in? That's the part I don't get.

BTW, could DB look any hotter than he does in those HQ pics in that suit? OMG. He needs to be in the new Johnny Depp gangster movie. I would die to see those two onscreen together in gangster suits.

I digress... Post, IM me, reg. old email, whatever. I'll be waiting to hear from you :)

Doc, I have no idea what's going on. I just hope the writers are able to remain true to the integrity, dignity, and affection that I think are at the core of Booth and Brennan's relationship.

L., you probably know as much as me and I'm practically completely spoiled. *g*

I'm just so thrilled to see you back commenting on my LJ I don't care what you've seen or not seen.

And you really haven't missed all that much. You could just start back watching this week and be okay. There has been much ado about nothing around here for quite a while. ;)

I agree with this except you MUST watch Cinderella in the Cardboard, Mayhem on the Cross & Girl in the Mask - you could easily give the rest a miss! Oh - and watch Salt in the Wounds if you haven't already! All important and/or squeeworthy :)
