There’s a new squintern in town… and he’s kind of adorable…
So Brennan had an ultrasound… and she didn’t invite Booth.. whoops! Anyway, they’re having a girl!!! And I can’t be the only one who is currently planning out the wedding of the Hodgela baby to B&B baby, right? Right? Bueller? Anyway…. Booth is kind of upset that Brennan is cutting him out of all of the baby stuff, so Brennan decides to try and see life through Booth’s eyes and walk in his shoes. Which means that Brennan is thinking about intercourse all the time. In the end Brennan understands why Booth may be upset that she didn’t ask him to come with her to the doctor’s appointment and shows him a video of the ultrasound. It’s a very cute moment.
Anyway… Meet Finn:
Finn is the new squintern replacing Vincent (still upset about that by the way… damn you Hart Hanson!). Finn is kind of a hillbilly genius who got into the program when he was a teenager… oh and he has a rap sheet, which sends Caroline into kind of a tizzy. But Cam says that he shouldn’t be punished for any mistakes hat he made as a teenager. Everyone deserves a second chance.
So what was Finn’s issue? Well he has an abusive step father and one day he decided that he had had enough and assaulted him with a knife. Finn’s father disappeared and was never heard from again. Finn was accused of killing him, but he claims that he threatened him but never ever killed him.
When Cam finds out that Finn’s father disappeared and was never seen again, Cam has Angela look up his rap sheet… cue Finn walking in and getting upset. Cue Finn leaving the Jeffersonian but coming back when he realizes that leaving was the cowards way out.
Hodgin’s has MAJOR issues with Finn because of the way that he talks. He even goes so far as to call Finn Opie. Hodgin’s pushes Finn to the limit and Finn gets pissed and puts Hodgin’s in his place… by calling him Thurston.. oh snap! The two actually become pals because of an experiment involving retrieving human remains out of a snake without having to actually kill the snake. Hello new Squintern!
Oh and there’s a case involving a girl who did hotdog competitions and was murdered… but I’m sorry, I don’t watch the show for the cases so they won’t really be covered in my recaps/reviews… unless the murder directly involves growth in the gang (aka: Gravedigger, or Sniper).
Hodgins: “Skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom…” Booth: “Looks like Dr. Evil’s cat.”
Finn: “There is something here that is as odd as my cousin Bobby.”
Booth: “I want you to use your Jedi mind powers.” Sweets: “I like it when you call me a Jedi.” Booth: “Most kids do.”
Booth: “She ate 65 hotdogs in 12 minutes!” Brennan: “You sound impressed with her accomplishments.” Booth: “65 hotdogs!” Brennan: “Yes.” Booth: “In 12 minutes!” Brennan: “You said.” Booth: “You don’t want to see that?!”
Brennan: “I want to have intercourse.” Booth: “What?!” Brennan: “You enjoy sex at any time. This is any time. Ergo, you want sex now! A simple syllogism!”
Hodgins: “Ok! I’m sorry! I was an asshat. I’m Thurston the asshat!”
Finn: “Well hack my legs off and call me Shorty.”
Overall grade: B. Booth was pissed about the living arrangements, but he was only upset about the ultrasound? I thought it would have been the other way around. I just didn’t buy that. Also the whole hotdog thing was disgusting… and I will never eat a hotdog again. Finn was adorable! He was a different kind of squint that we had yet to see on the show and I really did like him. I think he and Hodgin’s are going to have a lot of fun together.
