FInale Reaction - SPOILERS

So.... deep breath .... I think I'm okay with the ending, but a little sad.

I thought there would be more of a cliffie, maybe something more dramatic right before the screen went black. 

To skip right to the end, because that's what we're all going to remember ...

- SidePart!Booth takes my breath away.  Just when I think I'm immune to DB's hotness, he puts on desert fatigues and boots and rocks the side part and I'm a quivering mass of jello again. 

- Cam's "Oh My God" made me lol, because I said the same thing just then.

- Of course I wanted them to kiss.  And for a second I thought it was going to happen.  But then I remembered what happened the last time Booth gambled with his heart and realized he wouldn't do it a second time.  

- Her plea for him not to be a hero actually made me tear up.

- And the hand holding?  As much as my shipper heart wanted a kiss, the hand holding and plan to meet a year later was perfect.  That's where they are - that's what their relationship is - and it felt true to them, as much as I wanted to see more.

I too really thought that they were going to kiss for a moment. I even think that they thought that too, but it took like a second to decide not to. I have to say that I'm disappointed that they didn't kiss!

The hand holding was the best we could get if they weren't going to kill though. But I also wanted a hug. But I'm okay with just the hand holding.

When they walked away, and then they both stopped and looked back, I was so sure that Booth was going to run to her and give her an EPIC kiss too, but that didn't happen, they just kept on walking! Pffft!

Oh well, like I said, I was okay with it. I was just expecting more.

I loved it. I'm gonna paste in what I'm saying everywhere because I'm getting RSI here..

I LOVED it!! I've been struggling internally with the battle within me between wanting BB together and believing Brennan is ready. I loved the honesty of the 100th ep and I loved the honesty of this - it was her line about needing objectivity. I really believe she needs, wants and loves Booth, but that she needs the space to realise that.

When, not if, they are together in the future, I think I'll believe it better because she's had this space.

Oh show, I love you!!

Definitely. The more I think about this the more I think the time apart is exactly what she needs. She has said several times in the last few eps that she needs her objectivity back and I think when she steps back and looks at the facts she'll realize she loves him. And then we get to see her struggle with her feelings for him, which will be epic.

Yes have seem some people have been saying that line meant that she is going to go and rebuild her walls, but I really think it meant she wants to spend time finding a way that she can have this relationship she wants on her terms and in her time.

The fact that they arranged a time to meet? I mean GOD. Be still my beating heart! I just re-watched that scene and when he steps in close right before he holds her hand, she has this look on her face like, 'OMG he's going to kiss me and if he kisses me I don't think I'm going to be able to leave' - ED and DB just KILL me with their facial expressions, btw!

I really LOVED the hand hold because to me it was like anything else and they wouldn't be going anywhere - you know?? Guh.

This is pretty much exactly how I feel, bb! Finally got to the weekend and free of school obligations, so was able to watch the finale this afternoon, and now I think I need to go read fic to fix this, but. Show!!

I totally lol-ed @ Cam's OMG too, it was so my reaction as well and it was just funny too to realize that basically the whole lab was there watching BB just like we were - they've all become shippers lol! :)

The looks on their faces at the end scene was sort of beautifully achy-sad, and I loved the hand holding. Heartbreaking and sweet at the same time (the meeting place, OMG). ♥

The hand-holding was heart-crushing in it's simplicity. That was the most perfect goodbye - even if I did scream at the tv for them to kiss:)

Yeah, Cam and Angela looked like they would squee if they kissed just like the rest of us!
