Consider me your top suspect

So, the season finale of Bones . . .

First of all I have to say that it was fun to see all of Bones’ assistants together in one room!  It was so nice to see Eric Millegan back as Zack, even though he’s not the Zack we all know and love.  All the characters from the past season were well-represented in this episode.  The writers also did a great job of incorporating important past storylines (Gormogon, the Grave Digger).  The use of “The Lab” as a club was nice. 

The general mood of the episode was pretty light, and it seemed like everyone was having fun playing these new characters.  The relationship between Booth and Bones felt natural.  Thinking more about it, their relationship is pretty much just like it is now – without the sex and marriage certificate!  The other characters were in roles much less like their regular characters, but it worked for them.

The thing is, I’m not quite sure I liked this departure from the normal for the season finale.  I’m all for the occasional light-hearted episode in a series, particularly when it helps reveal more about the characters that we’ve come to know and love, but as a season finale, I’m not sold.  Where are the bones?  The investigation?  The questioning of suspects?  The interrogations?  I miss Bones trying to learn something about social interaction and Booth not fully understanding a scientific explanation!

I think what I disliked the most about this episode was that it was so predictable.  It was easy to guess that this whole storyline was a dream that Booth was having after his brain surgery.  The biggest question in my mind was “how long was his coma?” (it was 4 days, F.Y.I.)  Then having him wake up and not know who Bones was . . . well, if the producers and writers were expecting that to be a dramatic moment, they completely failed. 

Perhaps I’m not being fair though.  My two favourite shows this season were definitely Bones and House, and compared to the season finale of House, which I had very strong feelings about, the Bones season finale just didn’t measure up.  But is it fair to compare the two shows like that?  Is it fair for any show to compare to House? 

Did you watch the Bones season finale?  What did you think?  What were your thoughts on this season in general?
