Folks, there's no way to get around it. "The Woman in the Whirlpool" is a sobering episode, if you'll pardon the pun. We're dealing the aftermath of Booth lying about his resumed gambling activity and Brennan asking him to leave The Mighty Hut, 2.0, right? There's no way we could have a comedic piece after an upset like that. So, what do we do? We hunker down and look for the good in what is before us because there is good in this episode, and it's more than the quality of the portrayals, Hodgins' latest toy, or a solid case built around some interesting remains. There are some nuggets to hang onto and look for as you sit down (without your dinner, unless you want to be wearing it) to watch Bones' 20th episode of season 10.
In accordance with tradition, I have several teases for you that are cryptic enough to preserve the element of surprise, yet (hopefully) intriguing enough to get you excited about your first viewing of "The Woman in the Whirlpool."
