This week’s episode went from funny to sad in no time at all, although it did feel like a gradual (and natural) progression. We had the hilarious opening in which a woman is running away, and at first you think it’s another person, but it turns out it’s just a raccoon that’s chasing her. It was a funny, light-hearted way to open up the episode.
We have a serious and touching moment when Brennan shows concern for Max and talks about how they might not have long together, so she wants to be as involved in his life as possible. Especially when it’s to do with things like his health. Despite the seriousness of it all we do move on to the lab in which we see the others teasing Cam (well mostly Hodgins, and a little from Arastoo). This scene genuinely made me laugh out loud. Every time I see them being anything remotely like a family it makes me very happy.
We even get an adorable scene between Arastoo and Cam in which we see him making her smile/laugh and just in general we get to see them be the adorable couple they are.
