It took 12 years and episodes to tell the story of Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth on Bones , the Fox series that comes to an end tonight. The first is the coolest addition to the Bonesiverse seriously, this guy becomes an enigma bordering on mythological trickster. The second is our first peek into the personal life of Booth and an introduction to the most important person in his world. Booth, with his more nuanced philosophy of justice, encourages her to be a daughter first and a scientist second. And Max, ever the devoted father, looks at Booth and sees not an adversary but an ally. This is the man who could make his daughter happy, and Max would just love to play Cupid.
