Bones: Season 3 Premiere

Posted by BenSpark on September 26, 2007

Season three started out with a bang. Well not really, it was more of a bounce, “Hey what is that” “Bang!” when a human skull slammed into the windshield of the weed-mobile. And even that wasn’t too scary. No need to reach for your portable pulse oximeter with that opening sequence. It was interesting but not something that was really special.

So about 3 or 4 months has passed since Jack and Angela took off from their wedding leaving Booth and Bones at the altar. I’m not sure why anyone would have thought that Booth and Bones would have tied the knot in place of Jack and Angela. But anyway that wasn’t what Bones was upset with all episode. She wasn’t upset with Booth arresting her father either.

It should have been obvious that she was upset about losing ZacK to the military. Bones has this thing about being a big sister and wanting to protect those who are vulnerable like ZacK. We learn at the end of the episode that Bone’s was upset with Booth because Booth didn’t stop Zack from going to Iraq.

But despite finding a new member of the team (I hope this guy gets to stay on) Zack does return from Iraq because he didn’t fit in. And seeing Zack back made me realize that he is even more socially awkward than I ever remember. I think that something big happened in Iraq and we will learn more about that in a future episode.

Another thing we will learn about in future episodes is the serial killer subplot that is starting this season. Wasn’t there a serial killer called the grave digger last season who was never caught? Let’s not get to mired in serial killers or at least wrap up last year’s storyline on the grave digger.

We were very lucky to get home in time to watch the episode. It was a good one and I realized how much I missed the characters. Booth is still my favorite followed by Hodgins. Hodgins sports a whole new look and I like it. I’m looking forward to big things this season.

    I think that a big part of Zach’s insecurities and social awkwardness this episode stem from his feelings of inadequacy from being discharged from this military gig. He was much more confident last year when he was around his fellow geeks in the lab. It’s a big slap in the face to go someplace else and be told that you’re not good enough to fit in…
    Just my $.02.

    Ah very insightful. While someone may not fit in they would have most likely moved Zack around to some other area, I suspect a larger incident occurred. It will take a while to find out more about this. That is my prediction.
