I have recently re-watched some Bones episodes to relax between writing my Masters thesis.
Before, I was always so concentrated on Booth and Brennan that I missed a lot and therefore it was a good thing that I watched some epis again. What I saw now when I was re-watching was different from what I saw watching the epis the first time, especially when it came to Hodgins and Angela.
The first time I saw the epis I was like "Aw, they are so cute together" and yes, I felt sorry for Hodgins when she didn't accept the proposals and when she forgot she was married but I always hoped that they would get together again.
That changed when I watched the episodes again because I am now really convinced that she never really loved him. Why I say that? Well, she says so herself. I watched the "plane" episode and this time I got really angry when she said "I'm sorry, I'd really like to tell you that I can't fall in love with a man because it would make it easier for you, but I can... I can fall in love with a man " (Sorry if those are not the exact words, but I didn't transcribe it
). She is really implying that she never really loved him. I got really angry at her this time and when I saw him keeping the earring after she broke up with Roxy and they spend the "night" together I thought "Jack Hodgins, you fool! Just forget about her!".
While I would love to see the Angela and the Hodgins from season 2 together I really don't want Angela and Hodgins together in season 5. I'm afraid she will hurt him again and again and he will keep waiting for her like a lost little puppy.
Jack should really find someone else, a woman who loves him just as much as he loves her.
Now that might seem strange to most bones fans but the more I watch Hodgins and Cam scenes the more I'd love to see them together as a couple because I think they are really similar. Cam is tough, sarcastic and a bit bossy in the lab but in the few private scenes we have seen she is different and I kind of got the impression that she believes in true love, "the one". She has been hurt by Andrew Welton so she knows how Hodgins must feel pining for a woman who can't love him the way he loves her.
Also they are just hilarious together and the reactions of the people in the lab to the two of them would be great.
He might even make her forget about those security cameras she's always so worried about
So while I was really pro Angela and Hodgins now I am more contra and want him with someone else, preferably Cam, because she's amazing!
HODGINS: Well, hello, my exotic princess.
CAM: What a charmingly inappropriate greeting, Dr. Hodgins.
