* AmoralAttorney: Not a direct example as Bones isn't an attorney, but the exact same UnfortunateImplications of the trope are explored in episode 1x08 ''The Girl in the Fridge''; Bones and an OldFlame turned {{Rival}} are opposing experts in a murder trial. Bones clinically delivers her conclusions, her ex makes somewhat less professional conclusions while chatting up the jury - and implies that Bones isn't really as smart as she sounds. In between sessions, her ex states that he's merely "playing the game" - he's supposed to argue that the evidence supports the defendant, just as she's for the prosecution. In-universe, Bones' consultant argues for impartiality and sweet-talking the jury, but sees nothing wrong with her ex using inside knowledge(which he got by ''sleeping'' with her) to attack her character instead of the evidence([[WikiMagic which seems kind of illegal]]). This leads into the same Unfortunate Implications as Amoral Attorneys - that ''scientists'' aren't supposed to be impartial, but to have agreed in advance as to who is guilty no matter which side they're on.

Bones' ex isn't saying that she's reading the evidence wrong, he's saying she's a lousy scientist. Such a broad accusation is ''absolutely wrong'' in a courtroom where she is not the defendant.[[/note]], but Brennan's consultant waves it off as a technicality; "He looks like a regular guy who's not allowed to speak the truth because the stupid rules get in the way."). This leads into the same Unfortunate Implications as Amoral Attorneys - that ''scientists'' aren't supposed to be impartial, but to have agreed in advance as to who is guilty no matter which side they're on.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Bones. At first, she comes off as cold and heartless, but as the series goes on, more "layers" to her are opened up. She is actually a warm and caring person but has learned how to compartimentalize those feelings, as Sweets pointed out numerous times.

Even the one where [[spoiler:Booth puts a bullet in his face]] ends on the note that Pelant is still out there, and the team can do nothing but wait for him to attack again.

* ButNowIMustGo / PassingTheTorch: The Season 11 finale had [[spoiler: Booth and Brennan leaving Washington DC for the much safer environs of Kansas and Bones anointing Daisy, Edison, and Wendell (and possibly Aristoo) as her successors at the Jeffersonian]].
** TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler: Booth and Brennan return for season 12 and take back their old jobs, though not without a lot of trauma: Booth's brother dies, Booth is severely injured, and Brennan is horrified to discover that under Aristoo's leadership the Jeffersonian's unsolved cases have piled up.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Season 11, Episode 18 is a ContinuityCavalcade worthy of a ''SeriesFinale'', even though there are still four more episodes left in the season. A film crew is documenting the relationship between the Jeffersonian and the FBI, and throughout the film, all of their past members such as Vincent Nigel-Murray, Lance Sweets, and Zack Addy are mentioned. [[spoiler:OneOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers. Guess who returns in the season finale?]]

* TheUnfairSex[=/=]DoubleStandard: While the show is feminist and portrays a wide range of strong female and male characters, it will occasionally veer into this category generalizing men as AcceptableTargets, whereas you do not ''dare'' do the same to women.
