I now what you mean about the message. It would have been nice if it had been for Booth. The way the writers handled it was probably meant to show us that finding Brennans and Hodgins location was a team effort and everyone was involved in the process.
true...cause at the end in the Church...Booth said he was grateful for *every1*...not just getting Tempe bk...he knew that without the team effort, Tempe and Jack would sitll be in the car...now to me, that's showing how much the Squints have turned into not just co-workers for Booth, but friends...he told Tempe once b4, 'your people are my people'...and as time has gone on, he's proven it, IMO.
heck, even Zack is getting some respect now!
