Gravedigger Review and spoilers

After last week's episode, there has been a lot of speculation about Ms. Taffett's comment, "This isn't over." Was it just a way of "saving face?" Was it a real threat? What could she possibly be thinking?

Buddy TV went straight to the source to find out if it meant anything. If you are interested only in a review of the episode, feel free to read the first half of the article. She gives fair forewarning of when you should stop reading if you want to avoid any spoilers.

Thoughts? Interpretations? Do you like it? Do you hate it?

I love the idea of her coming back and Booth putting a bullet through her brain!!! If that sounds bloodthirsty, I'm sorry; being buried alive is one of my personal nightmares and the actress who played Taffet played her so well I was cheering for her death through the entire episode. I love the idea of her being a future nemesis because she's such a well-played villain, but that doesn't stop her from beeing skeery! :)

I have mixed feelings about her coming back. Part of me says, oh they already did that with Epps, and that they need to find a new "villian."

However, I loved all of the episodes with the Gravedigger. And hey, who doesn't want to find out what was in that letter?!

On a different note, I thought it was funny that the poll at the end about whether or not Brennan would leave was split 50-50!

If it is the Gravedigger I vote for her escaping and/or getting released on a later appeal and disappearing. She must have a lot of cash stashed somewhere -- I am sure she could make a new identity no problem. And then focus on revenge.

I disagree with her analysis of Booth's feelings. I don't think he had very much fear or left over trauma from being captive. I think most of his emotion during that episode was focused on the vision of his dead friend and not on the actual horror of being trapped. And he got closure with his friend at the end.

He also had a lot more space, sunlight, and physical actions he could take. If he hadn't been able to get out of that tiny little yellow thing that he was in at the beginning... definitely he would have been as traumatized as Brennan and Hodgins.

I suspect the easiest way to keep this plot is going is for the GD's accomplice to strike again with the same MO. If the writers want to perpetuate the exaggerated angst feeling they love so much, have the accomplice get Parker.

The easiest to explain plot device for the return of the GD is to have the accomplice which is acknowledged must exist, stage another kidnapping with the identical MO. Since the writers are always looking to contrive maximum if implausible angst, let the target be Parker.

Ohhh, Aardvark! Parker as the next target of the Gravedigger would make for some awesome tv!!!

I agree with Aardvark and Anonymous...

BUT ONLY IF PARKER WALKS AWAY UNHARMED!!!!!

i always thought it would be parker and, say, angela. talk about some wound up rescue efforts...especially with recent developments.

i've been tracking some hints during episodes this season regarding GD -- nothing really concrete but things to think about.
