Hero in the Hold Promo

In case you missed it, here is last night's Bones promo for "The Hero in the Hold." Remember, it airs in 2 weeks, on February 5th!

OK, I'm being picky and I KNOW that it's Bones I'm talking about with her vaunted ability to compartmentalize but...

I HATE her delivery of the "your brother has been kidnapped" line. NO emotion. NO sense of urgency. She might as well follow it up with "and also I'm having tuna fish for lunch."

Where is the "freaking out because her man is in danger" Brennan that I fully expect to show?? Weird line to choose for the promo.

Sorry rant over. :(

I think because that is such a short sound bite and we're only seeing her face for a split second that it may not be getting across the emotion. Just a thought. I bet the whole scene will play better. :)

I am excited for an intense Bones. I miss the eps like this that played more in the earlier seasons.

I agree Chariot. Sometimes these promos take lines out of context and it ends up sounding differently in the actual episode. At least I hope so!

Dani said...

Brennan doesnt like Jared anymore after he made her think that Booth was a loser... perhaps that explains the seeming coldness of the line...

i cant wait for the episode...

That's true. I think that especially with her history of having been through it, she couldn't be unemotional.

Man, this will be an amazing episode! So much potential for emotion from Angela, flashbacks of fear for Hodgins and Brennan, and the bond in the teamwork that we love so much in the show.

Anyone know who the intern will be?

Look at how many lines they used out of context in the Double Trouble promo. I hate it but they do it on purpose. If she's that unemotional in the actual epi then I'll be annoyed (read: p*ssed).

Louise said...

I actually think Brennan will appear quite unemotional for most of the ep ... but in her efficient "we have to find Booth, I don't have time to be emotional" kind of way. I'm hoping we do see some glimpses of how worried she is though. And I'm hoping for a few references to Brennan's and Hodgins' experience.

All in all, I'm just really excited for this ep ... just can't believe we have to wait two weeks! How many Bones nights have we had in the last 2 months? 3?!

em-jay said...

Really good point, Louise. That would be Brennan's way.

Louise said...

Here's the press release ... love the idea of them having to examine Booth's apartment...

This one's like a film trailer! I agree with Chariot13 and Louise. The line is cut and Brennan would probably be even more focused - freaking out would waste time!

Well, I think she does seem unemotional there. But,

1- I thought she was pissed at Jared... Maybe she wasn't telling him something and he was pressing her... and she finally admitted what was bothering her and that's why she seems... plain.

2- this is a case that goes deep emotionally. For one thing, she was kidnapped by the GD too. Also, Booth's kidnapped. She must be feeling so many things, must be so nervous and anxious, that all she can do is fall back to her defenses: look as dettached as she can. After all, it's her very outlet, the one person she trusts to *feel* with that's in danger.
I wouldn't be surprised if we got to see only a couple of outbursts of emotion during the ep.

Shep said...

By the way, why the two week wait? Haven't they done enough preempting already!

Stephanie said...

The two week wait is due to American Idol. It's on three nights next week. You know Fox, American Idol time rolls around, and it always takes priority over all of their other shows.

I, too, think Brennan is just being detached and trying to distance herself from the situation to be able to solve the case. When her emotions get too heavy, she withdraws from everything, just like in "The Pain in the Heart." Plus, she's probably still not a big fan of Jared's, haha.
