Bones, I love you but what am I going to do with you??

Last night’s Bones episode. Honestly, I’m not sure what it is, but I can’t take TV heartbreak like this anymore. The only thing I can think of is, I’ve exceeded my life’s allotment of sadness and just can’t take any more, even if it’s only tv. I won’t say more. I don’t want to spoil it for people who haven’t seen it, and for people who have, you know what I’m talking about. I know I’m insane. No need to point it out.

That said, the writers of that scene and the actors did a great job. I don’t know if there’s anyone left who is insisting that television can’t rise to the level of great art (anyone worth listening to) but last night was a terribly poignant expression of what is most difficult in life, saying goodbye to this, for all that sucks about it, saying goodbye to those we love, saying goodbye period. But still, don’t fucking do anything like that ever again everyone over there at Bones. Oh God. Remembering the character’s last words. Now I’m mad again. Yeah, I’m insane.

Look at the top of this building! What an enchanting place to live.

  1. I thought of you the minute that happened! I knew you would not be happy, but no, you’re not insane. Pretty intense thing to have happen on this show I must say and so very sad. Cute singing ending though to lighten it up a bit, just a bit? And yes, those final words….really hard to hold back the tears, well impossible.

  2. Yes, the singing was sweet, very sweet, but still. That was so hard. I love that character and him begging to be able to hold on to life and stay, oh God.
