Bones Season 8 Review “The Bod in the Pod” – Another Romance Blossoms at the Jeffersonian

Bones Season 8 Episode 7 The Bod in the Pod

In this episode of Bones, called “The Bod in the Pod,” the team hunts for a killer who could have the skills necessary to hide all evidence of their crime, and a new romance blossoms at the Jeffersonian.

Wow, that Jeffersonian place must be one romantic spot. So far we’ve had Angela and Hodgins fall in love there, then Booth and Brennan, and now Cam and Arastoo. I’m starting to think maybe I should buy myself a plane ticket to D.C. and check this place out to see if it’ll help me find Mr. Right.

When I saw the previews for this episode, I got an inkling that maybe Arastoo and Cam were dating. Mostly because they were both talking about romantic dinners and dating but being very coy about just who they were meeting. But honestly I didn’t think I was right, so when the truth actually came out, I think I was probably as surprised as most fans.

Personally, I gotts say that I’m really liking Arastoo and Cam as a romantic pair. Arastoo blew me away in last week’s episode and I was already starting to see him in a new light. Then when he started reading the poetry to Cam, I nearly melted onto the floor. I’m also happy that we don’t have to play the “keep the secret” game for too long and that at least Hodgins and Angela know for now. I do wonder how long it will take for Booth and Brennan to find out though.

Speaking of Booth and Brennan, I still love that Sweets is living with them. I’m in a similar situation right now, living with married friends who have a young son, so I totally get where he’s coming from and what he’s going through. I hope that he finds his own way at some point, but I’m okay if it’s not too soon. The last love he found at the Jeffersonian didn’t work out though, so maybe he should look elsewhere for his next girlfriend.

My favorite bits….

“At first I thought pod people.”
“Of course you did.”

“Let’s just keep it close to Earth there, bug boy.”

The digusting body bringing up warm and cuddly memories for Brennan.

“The decendent is male.”
“Human?”
“Really?”

Not blaming Cam one bit for thinking that it’s awkward to date her daughter’s gynecologist. He’s cute, but….ew.

“You’re no fun.”
“That’s not what he says.” – Oh, snap!

“They had a blood-alcohol level four times the legal limit.”
“I like to believe that the aliens were wonderful hosts.”

The childlike joy on Hodgins’ face when Arastoo said they were going to have to bust out the laser. I gotta admit, that was pretty cool.

Literally gasping out loud when Hodgins put his face into that thing. What was he thinking??

Arastoo knowing that Hodgins was out for exactly 52 seconds.

Brennan pointing out that Hodgins shouldn’t fall into the evidence as it would only add to his humiliation.

“Now, come on, your kindness is looking like pity.”

Booth, Brennan and Sweets all hanging out at home.

“I find I can’t relax until Little Louie is safe.”

“I am currently considering writing a children’s book.”
“Oh, how are you going to fit a murder into that?” – Literal LOL at that one. Oh Sweets, you slay me.

Cam wisely not asking why it smelled like turkey in Hodgins’ lab.

Finding out that Arastoo’s poetry is apparently very sexual. Huh. Never would’ve guessed that.

“You are amazing.”
“What I am is a man who can’t go home.”

“You’re a political exile. That is so cool.”
(Arastoo stares)
“In a terrible, terrible, way of course.”

Sweets and Booth arguing over how to put leftovers in the fridge.

Brennan turning the tables on Sweets and giving him some psychobabble of her own.

“I’m not buttering her up…..you want some more wine?”
“Thank you.”

“I didn’t understand a word of that.”
“I think you did.” – Hodgins’ reaction after that was fantastic.

“I’m a romantic, I know what I heard.”

The whole “Melvin Carville” argument that Brennan and Booth had.

“You are my carburetor.” – Best. Poem. Ever.

Hodgins and Angela catching Arastoo and Cam making out by the fountain. So sweet.

The song that was playing while the techs tore the house apart. Cool to have one that was so upbeat during a montage.

Sweets waking up with a “Who’s there? I have a gun.”

“Who dreams about murder at 3:00 in the morning?” – Um Sweets, have you MET Brennan.

Christine’s baby monitor going off as soon as Booth left Sweets’ room.

“Is this going to be a dirty story?”

Bones using a hair dryer to bring out evidence that was once invisible. That was awesome.

“Melvin Carville thought he cleaned the evidence out of existence.”
“Not on my watch.”

“You made one big mistake.”
“What was that?”
“You pissed off my partner here.”

Brennan getting to say “Gotcha!” to Melvin.

Hodgins reading the horribly translated poetry to Angela.

Brennan trying to name the top three reasons she loves Booth.

“Now you give me your top three reasons for loving me.”
“I don’t have reasons.”

“Oh, man, you need to learn how to lie.” – Actually, I thought that his honestly was incredibly sweet.
