'Hero' ep reaction

Have had time to re-watch and digest - hope my ramble makes sense...

Spoilers up through 'Hero' .... (won't mention future spoilers TT!)

My favorite ep in a while, the action was great and this was low on the cheese scale.

Loved Booth's comments about Rebecca, and Parker.  Which of course led to my favorite line re:loving someone and not telling them :)

I've decided that just because Bones doesn't believe in ghosts, Cpl. Parker was still there and she could see him even though she didn't know he was a ghost.  Booth was the only one that knew that.  Plus, because of their connection she could see what Booth saw.  :)

Thrilled about Jared coming through at the end.  Booth deserved him putting his career on the line for him.

Violent!Bones is awesome.

My squee is totally back for this show.

I SO agree!! The Jared-redemption bit was possibly my fav part of the ep - besides the fact that both Booth and Brennan had people telling them they loved someone ;)

Oh definitely. The Jared stuff really worked for me. I was so disappointed in him before, that he was not a better brother to Booth. I doubt we'll see anymore of him - just as I decided to like him!

I'm finding it completely amazing the way reactions on this ep seem to be so at odds. This really seems to be one of those love it/hate it episodes.

Personally, I think that I may have been let down a little initially, because I have so much love for AitS, and I had really high expectations for this. But I rewatched last night, with an eye to seeing it for it's own merit and I found that I really loved it. For all the reasons you mentioned and a few more.

Glad to hear that your squee is back for the show!

I think because Booth was more Serious!Booth in this one, I liked it better. I really hate Goof!Booth and this didn't have any of that, plus gave us some great backstory on him.
