After the disaster that was season 3’s overall storyline, and Zach Addy ended in a mental hospital. Dr. Brennan was in need of a replacement lab assistant. Bones – Season 4 is all about testing out her best grad students, in addition to resolving the cases that crop up.
“Well that’s like me saying I don’t want to be a sexy FBI agent. We can’t change who we are.”
Booth after Brennan is having issues with being a writer.
The season starts with Booth and Brennan on a lecture tour in the UK. While there are some story lines coming back from previous seasons, such as the grave digger case returning – ending with the grave digger being caught, there are a lot more stand-alone episodes this season since the Gormagon arc was solved last season.
The episode where Brennan decides that she wants Booth’s baby.
While I loved the above episode, having watched the seasons consecutively – it is such a change from season 1 Brennan. At certain moments, it felt a bit implausible. However, listening to her reasoning as to why, and have it be a part of her character development was fascinating.
The episode stopped the insemination from happening with Booth’s surgery, although his sperm is still frozen for possible future use.
In the Norwegian Death Metal episode, Mayhem on a cross, there is a Norwegian word for skull. Brennan is correcting everyone on its pronunciation, and not perfectly.
Having an episode set partially in Norway was a fascinating thing to watch. The Norwegian dialogue was awkward and had probably gone through an automatic translator. But it is interesting to see one’s own country through the American television production.
The alternative episode after Booth’s surgery, where everything happens in a dream, and he is in love with Brennan.
