Anyone else notice that Brennan’s wedding ring is fancier and not as practical in her story as in real life?
Yes and Booth isn’t wearing a wedding band. I recently watched this episode just because I wanted to hear Booth say “My wife” a few times. I’m already used to Brennan saying “my husband”.
Well, it was definitely a “what if” episode. I did wonder why Mr. B didn’t have a wedding band while she did. But Bren had never even seen a dead (or at least murdered) body before! Totally not her. But Mr. B had been to war.
Which leads us to believe that she could imagine herself married and having a different life but she didn’t want to change Booth too much even in her fantasy world. She loves him the way he is.
Yes, but on a sad note that also meant that she felt like she had to change who she was. So maybe she was really kind of saying, maybe if I were a different person, I could have that kind of relationship with Booth. Because that’s what it all came down to in 5x16. Thinking she couldn’t change, that she didn’t have an open heart, that she would only end up hurting him.
A++ for the comments guys :)
wow, I never thought about this but it makes perfectly sense.
ACTUAL MESSAGE OF (500) DAYS OF SUMMER THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REALIZES
Kristen Stewart @ MTV’s Sneak Peek Week | May 2012 +
First Reviews are coming in….
A young woman joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small-town roots. Instead, she ends up as a new guard at Guantanamo Bay, where her mission is far from black and white. Surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive squadmates, she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees. As two people on opposite sides of a war, they struggle to find their way through the ethical quagmire of Guantanamo Bay. In the process, they form an unlikely bond that changes them both.
Intricately constructed, Camp X-Ray is a case study in the power of performance. At still a young age Kristen Stewart has long been much more than a movie star, and with this nuanced and internal performance, she continues to prove she has serious acting chops. Opposite her, Payman Maadi delivers a riveting performance as a man caught in limbo, reaching out for reason. Burrowing past the politics and into the humanity of the infamous detention camp, writer/director Peter Sattler provides a fresh perspective on the discourse of the war on terrorism and achieves one of the great virtues of film—creating empathy.
