Are they in high school?
20 March 2017 | by TyannehSee all my reviews

I felt like I was watching some kind of after school special. Angela was furious with Booth for breaking up the engagement. She was right to be, she's Brennan's best friend and she tried to protect socially awkward Temperance. I get it. But when Seeley became angry and offended it was too much for me. He must have known how it looked like him breaking up the engagement out of the blue(I was surprised that Brennan didn't want to leave him. I know it would be too complicated and it would take a lot of time to reunite them but it Brennan acted like she was this silly girl who depends on her man and tolerate everything : () It's understandable Angela was disappointed in him. She didn't know that it was because of Pelant (a little bit too much if you ask me). Booth should apologize for acting like this not be offended and angry at Angela. ***tiny spoiler regarding this episode*** And Brennan was asking him if she can have a bachelorette party with Angela? Really, I felt like I was watching a show about some high school kids.
