* Booth is remarkably willing, even aggressively, to excuse government actions, even though the government has turned on him on at least one occasion. Even though he, like every serviceman and federal agent, swore an oath to ''the Constitution'', not the government.

** Booth is, in his way, very much an idealist, and he's also seen the things a government must sometimes do for the greater good. Him objecting to specific actions and being in favour of the government in general is entirely plausible.

* One, Booth is the sort of hero who will try to solve everything alone if he can. He's the only one who can legally kill Pelant without repercussions and he will not allow Brennan or the Squints to do the deed if he can help it, even though all of them would love the opportunity, because he thinks the blood should be on his hands alone. Two, the writers are hoping [[ViewersAreMorons we'll just ignore the gigantic hole in this plotline.]] If the backlash on the TV review sites (and especially their comment sections) is any indication, the fans are not taking this very well. While Pilant is right about this sort of senseless self-sacrifice being in Booth's nature, it stinks of WriterOnBoard.

* Ever watch EvilDead2? Is it a horror movie? Is it a comedy? It's both! Bones is what is called a dramedy. Not to the same level as {{Psych}}, but pretty close.

** That's typical of fiction though, shows that try and pretend to be realistic most of all. Things like conflict of interest are outright ignored unless the writers suddenly decide to make the characters pay attention to stuff like that. Ergo, Cam blows off Sweets about the above Pelant incident but raises hell over Wendell's medical marijuana use later. Cam looks like a hypocrite just because the writers decided to be inconsistent.

* How exactly did Pelant manage to steal [[spoiler:all of Hodgin's Money?]] I mean I get the basic principal but why didn't he have insurance or just report the fraud to the FBI?

* Season 8 episode 13, how, I mean he steals huge sums of money from at least 20 different banks, steals an active military drone that is armed and has to be on a mission, does all this by preprogrammed commands to the server of a private mercenary company. It is impossible, the banks would have noticed it was not Hodgins taking the money and would have blocked the transactions, the military would have shot down the drone the moment they lost control, and you cannot access military drones from anywhere but the military's control network, so unless he can get himself onto and army base in Cali there is no way for him to access the drone.

** Most likely, it's just an issue of finding it and returning it to Hodgin's accounts. Might take a few weeks of digging thru all of Pelant's hiding places and encrypted accounts, but it will be done.

*** Brennan is out of touch because she WANTS to be. One thing that has always been consistent about Brennan is that she has her own view of the world that in her opinion is logical and expects everybody to adhere to that view while dismissing anyone who points out that her views are ridiculous. She just outright doesn't ''care'' about pop culture nor if anybody takes offense at what she says, and she's the last to admit when she's wrong. In short, Brennan is far too arrogant a person to recognize her own flaws.



This troper is bugged by the recent episode where she basically fires Wendell, who is recovering from cancer, because he's taking medicinal marijuana as part of his chemo. While [[StrawmanHasAPoint Cam does raise a good point]], that keeping him on the case will result in any evidence being called into question during court, ''however'', a couple seasons back, when Pelant broke into Hodgins' home and threatened Angela and their son, Sweets requested Cam that she take Hodgins off the case because he is taking this too personally, and Hodgins being a victim will be a conflict of interest in court. Cam blows Sweets off. So.... wait... it's okay to keep a guy on the case, who is also a victim, but keeping a guy who is taking ''medicinal marijuana'' for chemo therapy (and not for recreational purposes), is a no-go? That doesn't make any sense.
