Bones - The Sin in the Sisterhood recap/review

A victim's body was found in cornfield, and Brennan and Booth had to investigate the dead man's three wives. The wives were also biological sisters. Booth and Bones bickered about the nature of marriage, jealousy, and love. They found out the sisters' father had killed the guy. Not a surprise and not a great addition to the polygamy TV canon. Ern was disgusted with the college student who slept with the victim, despite knowing that he had at least one wife. How can you do that? It boggles the mind.

Much of the episide also focused on Cam's frustration with her (new) doctor boyfriend. He wasn't making enough time for their relationship, and, to be fair, neither was she. In the end, they both decided to make their relationship more of a priority. The episode ended with Booth giving Brennan a meaningful look and saying something like, "You can love a lot of people, but you only have one person that you love the most." Which Leeard thought undermined everything he said about Hannah when Brennan confessed her love to him. Makes no sense. However, had Ern been watching the episode, she would've seen the look Booth gave Bones, and it would make sense.

Episode Grade: C-

You can tell by our lame recap that nothing worth going on about happened. Meh. Just your run-of-the-mill procedural episode that wasn't even a very interesting case.


  1. I agree except for the car scene between Booth and Brennan. The best part about this show in the interpersonal relationships. I don't watch it for their clever murders. The books do a much better job of all the crazy science involved.

    This I loved in this episode that made it better than their average:

    1) The scene with Hodgins and Angela in the lab. The teasing, the banter, the "It's the lab coat, isn't it?", and their real happiness with each other... It gives me hope that nerds can find love too! ;)

    2) Sweets giving his two cents about polygamy, not as a a doctor but as a 24 year old. I so enjoy when he is a 24 year old. His scene with Daisy a couple of seasons ago ("I less than three you!" "Semi-colon close parentheses!") was one of his best, and this one made me giggle too.

    3) Wendal in general. He's hot, clever, and funny. Anytime he's in the scene I pay attention.

    4) Ok fine, this is the real reason I liked the episode. Booth and Brennan giggling and coming up with stupid insults, then trying to get serious ("We are very bad, a man is dead.") and then burst out laughing again. This, THIS is why they belong together, not with stupid "perfect" hot blondes who would rather be dodging gunfire in the Middle East.

    And I liked the look... though it shouldn't have come from Booth. If he's going to give her sweet looks and talk about loving people, he needs to kick Hannah to the curb and work it out with Brennan.

    So yes, the plot was a C, but who cares? They squints and their nerdy joy are what make this show. Even if Cam's plot was lame.

  2. That should've been "Things I loved in this episode..." It's cool, I can spell.

  3. Yeah, those moments were good. They just weren't at the forefront. They put the boring bits on stage and kept the good stuff in the peanut gallery.

  4. As a fan of Bones/Booth, I loved the look. As a watcher/sometimes recapper of the show, I didn't like it. Both were exactly for the reason you stated: "If he's going to give her sweet looks and talk about loving people, he needs to kick Hannah to the curb and work it out with Brennan." That car scene was awesome, and reminded us why we like them together.

    This all boils down to one thing: Hannah needs to peace out, like, yesterday.
