4.x21 -" Mayhem on the Cross" - Episode Discussion (April 16th 2009)


Stephen Fry Guest-Stars

2nd of 2 All-New Episodes Airing This Week

When a real human skeleton is found being used as a stage prop for a death metal band in Norway, authorities determine the victim was an American citizen.

As Booth and Brennan venture into the unfamiliar world of death metal music to search for the killer and a motive, they learn about their own team’s surprising musical preferences and gain new insight into Sweets’ past. Meanwhile, when Sweets asks Dr. Gordon Wyatt (guest star Stephen Fry) for input on the book he’s writing about Booth and Brennan, Dr. Wyatt lends Sweets an interesting perspective on the pair’s unique relationship in the “Mayhem on a Cross” episode of BONES airing Thursday, April 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Sweets looks creepy, I wonder why he's dressed like that.
I knew, right from the beginning...
... I'm that guy, Bones I'm that guy....
... I know...

I've just about died with the last scene when Bones decided to share something of her childhood traumatic experiences and pressures Booth into doing the same...
The way he looked at her, the way he asked her "Are you all right, Bones?" and the way she put back into his breast pocket the handkerchief and patted his suit and right after he reached and did the same
And finally Sweets saw the same thing everybody else in his right mind saw... that Booth is enthralled and in love with Brennan and she is most definitely not indifferent (and they are not just suppressing a sexual attraction)

I have to say that for me accepting Sweets in “the family” was the best part of today’s episode. I like the character and his quirks even though I have to say that Bones does make a good point regarding his chosen profession, you know… being ineffective and generally a total crap
Booth & Brennan
“You & me are the center...
... and the center must hold.”

I was suprised when i saw the beginning and they started talking Norwegian (yeah.. i didn't read the eppy description!! lol)
The man was obviously Norwegian. The woman was probably swedish TRYING to talk Norwegian. Atleast that's what it sounded like.

Great episode. The end was the best though. OH MY GOD!!!! They are so freakin' in love....

Norway victim that died in the US shipped to Norway to a black metal band. Ha!
LMAO at Brennan correcting Cam’s pronunciation of ‘skull’ in Norwegian! So cute.

Aww and Gordon Gordon shows up to see Booth, and they just keeeeep shaking hands.
And Booth was obviously disturbed by Gordon Gordon being in town to be interviewed by Sweets for his book he’s writing on Booth and Brennan.

Gordon: It’s just that Brennan and Booth aren’t in any way opposites.
Sweets: Wow, small? What is that? British understandment?
Gordon: Yes, he’s a man. She’s a woman. He’s instinctual, she’s imperical.
Sweets: Opposites
Gordon: Superficial <something effemerant?> Dr Sweets
Sweets: Wow. Okay. What about the sexual component in their relationships? Would you agree that they have both sublimated their attraction to each other out of fear of endangering their working relationship? Because their working relationship is paramount to both of them?
Gordon: At last, I’m afraid I wouldn’t agree with it. No.
Sweets: Wow, which part.
Gordon: Well everything you just said. Yes, one of them is acutely aware of that attraction. Struggles with it daily as a matter of fact.
Sweets: Wow. I’m sorry I keep saying that. Which one?
Gordon: It’s your book, Dr. Sweets. I would never tell you what to write.

And Sweets knew all the differences between Death Metal and Black Metal bands. How funny!

And Booth knew Sweets as Noddy Comet! So hilarious.

And the guy spit on Booth’s badge ID and he just shot out the speakers.
Gordon: Now if you recall it was shooting inanimate objects that had you brought to me for therapy in the first place.
Booth: I thought it was a justifiable shooting.
Brennan: I agree.
Booth: She agrees. See?
Band member: You going to put your gun down?
Booth: Don’t rush me okay? I’m thinking.

And ooooo Booth is on desk duty because he discharged his weapon. And so he speaks in her ear and watches on the laptop.
Booth: Alright Bones. Just ease into this.
Brennan to suspect: What was Mayhem’s real name?
Booth: Or just go at him like a freight train.
Ha ha!
The fake confessions …
Brennan: I am so much better at interrogation than I thought!
Then Sweets comes into Booth’s office and he has to hide the watching bit! So adorable.

Brennan is at the concert by herself and Booth is on desk duty and is worried about her.
Booth: I don't want you there alone, okay? Just get a good look at this guy and get out.
And Sweets is dressed up as the crowd/band members.
Booth: You know what, just tell Sweets to leave Gene alone. Get a photo and get out of there.
Brennan: He’s got a knife.
Booth: Who’s got a knife?
Awww, he’s so worried.
And Brennan ripped Sweets shirt off as a compress and wants Booth to call it in for an ambulance.
Booth: Listen, I'm not hanging up Bones!
She hangs up to dial 911.
Booth: Bones? Bones?
And she tells the crowd: FBI, stand back!
Ahhh, she claimed to be FBI.

Booth: It’s alright to lie during interrogation Bones. It’s a technique.
Brennan to suspect: The evidence is inconclusive regarding your guilt. But I will damn well make sure it’s conclusive.
Sweets: Whoa, what?
Booth: Atta girl, give it to him!
Brennan: I will perjure myself if I have to because you make me sick, PUNK!
Ha ha ha! She was great. During the whole interrogation!

And LMAO at Gordon Gordon giving Booth his gun back, and out in open in the diner! And Booth made him put the gun under the table. Cute!

And awww at the conversation between Gordon Gordon and Brennan and Booth about their childhood trauma’s and Sweet’s childhood. And Booth applauding Brennan for ‘telling the whole diner’ about their traumatic pasts. CUTE.

Booth: Okay Bones and I are going to go in there. What we do not need to hear is a lot of psychological mumbo jumbo in our ears.

I enjoyed learning about Sweets past through Gordon Gordon’s telling.

And the guy sketched Brennan as a grunge black metal girl and called her hot! LMAO. And I loved how the suspect was all saying they hadn’t seen hell and Booth and Brennan just automatically, so matter of factly, each stated their own hell, her seeing the genocide and his being a soldier and cop. THEN they way they tricked the guy with his own pride to admit something about the crime that only the murderer would know.

And ooooooo end scene …. Booth and Brennan and Gordon Gordon listening to Noddy Comet and then discussing Sweets.
Gordon: He’s a good lad, Sweets. But this book he’s writing. He’s using it as the vehicle to get what he actually wants, which is a family.
Brennan: So he imprinted on us like a baby duck? So what do we do?
Booth: Nothing okay, Sweets is not a baby duck.
Gordon: He wants what we all wants. He wants to find out his place in the world.
Brennan: We can find a permanent place for him. Right?
Booth: Gordon Gordon is going to want us to divulge or share or bond or something awful.
Gordon: Look perhaps you might just show the lad that he’s not the only one with scars on his back.
Brennan: But he is. Too literal?

Booth: Let’s go.
Brennan: Where are we going?
Booth: Duck hunting.
Brennan: Not literally, right?
Booth quacks.
They leave. Gordon rocks his music!

Booth and Brennan arrive and invite Sweets to the family style dinner that Gordon was making.
Brennan: My foster parents locked me in the trunk of a car for two days when I broke a dish. I was a very clumsy child. They warned me it would happen but the water was so hot and the soap was so slippery. I still don’t think it was very even though they gave me fair warning. The water was so hot.
Sweets: No it wasn’t fair. At all. It wasn’t your fault.
Booth, handkerchief in hand: Bones, what are you doing?
Brennan: You said that scars on the back was a metaphor. Isn’t that why we’re here? To metaphorically compare scars?
Booth: I came to bring Sweets back to my place for dinner, that’s all.
Sweets and Brennan discuss his scars on his back. And she decided to just share something from her past.
Brennan to Booth: Okay, your turn.
Booth: I came to bring Sweets back to my place for dinner, that’s all.
Brennan’s look.
Booth: Okay if it wasn’t for my grandfather I probably would have killed myself when I was a kid. Okay that is all I’m going to say on the subject matter understand. Are you okay Bones?
Brennan: Yeah, I’m fine. Here.
Puts his handkerchief back. THE LOOKS
Brennan to Sweets: Why are you nodding?
Sweets: Nothing. Just Wyatt made an observation about you two and I think I just saw what he saw.

And the new title of his book: Bones – the heart of the matter.
