Two weeks of Bones have passed now with nary a word about Brennan being shot. No mention, still, of Hodgins' lost fortune, and he seems as chipper as ever.
Yes, Bones season 8 is the season of the standalone, asynchronous episodes, it seems.
I know that previous seasons of Bones have consisted of season-long story arcs that aren't mentioned week to week, like the Gravedigger, interspersed into the case-of-the-week episodes - but there's something about this season in particular that continues to make the entire season feel disconnected from itself somehow. It's disconcerting.
Despite the disconnect, as far as independent episodes go "The Fact in the Fiction" was at least fun. Maybe the most fun episode to date.
