'Bones' Fan Columnist: Cam's New Man: Love Him or Hate Him?
On last week's episode of Bones, "The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle," we saw a lot of things.  We saw an incredibly jealous Dr. Brennan, some sparks between Angela and Hodgins, and the introduction of Cam's new man, Dr. Paul Linder.    

Considering I've already talked about Brennan's jealousy and the overwhelming probability of Hodgins and Angela reuniting, I feel it is now time to take a more in-depth look at Cam's new love interest. 


Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


First, I just have to congratulate her.  It's about time she got a new man, don't you think?  What with Booth dating Catherine, Brennan dating Hacker, and Angela and Hodgins on the verge of rekindling their romance, I'd say it's about time Cam got some action.  

Now, I do have to say that he wasn't really what I was expecting.  Yes, he was Michelle's gynecologist until he and Cam started dating and then Michelle ordered Cam to find her somebody else as that would be too weird for her, but, that's not what really surprised me. 

No, what I found very intriguing was that Dr. Paul Linder just didn't really seem like Cam's type.  Maybe it's just me, but when I think of Cam with someone, I typically think of a Booth-like person; someone who's strong, charismatic, and confident.  Someone who can be there for her and support her, especially given what she does. 

Initially, Dr. Linder just didn't seem like this kind of a person to me.  But then I started thinking.  Maybe this kind of guy is good for Cam.  Maybe she needs a change from the norm.  Besides, Dr. Linder does seem like a very sweet, thoughtful, and loyal guy, and isn't this what we all want for Cam in the first place?  

Also, he and Cam seem to have a lot in common.  What's more, they seem to understand each other.  They both have jobs that you typically don't tend to share with other people, and, most of all, they have that all important instant chemistry.  

So, I must conclude that I like their relationship.  Yes, it's not what I expected, but I think it's a good one, and I'm very happy for Cam.  It seems like she's found herself a good guy.  But, that's just my opinion.  What does Tamara Taylor, Cam herself, have to say about her new love interest? 

Well, it's not really her opinion as much as it is what will happen.  For those of you who are about to read this, I will tell you that it's not very spoilerish, but rather very cryptic as usual.  

In an interview with Zap2It, Tamara Taylor said, "Cam gets a love and it's like love and loss...Not the loss of love but you will see [what I mean when the season finale airs].  There's not much more I can say.  The season finale, it's going to leave people wondering what happens next." 

So, I for one am stumped as to what she means by this, and I guess we will just have to wait until the season finale to understand what she is talking about.  However, if anyone wants to pose a theory as to what you think she means, feel free to leave a comment below!  Also, give me your feedback on Cam's new man.  

Oh, and just to let you know, the season finale really isn't as far away as it seems.  Right now, we've got 16 days to go.  Pretty incredible, right?  Let the countdown begin!
