What will become of barn-burning FBI Agent Genny Shaw (Tina Majorino)? That’s right — the hotly demanded new addition to Bones has taken time out of her packed shooting schedule to leak spoilers to hold us over in the desperate home stretch til showtime!
As a doe-eyed novice seeking to “prove herself to Booth,” Shaw came off in her first apperance (“The Hole in the Heart”) as innocent and naïve. And that’s not about to change: in “The Male in the Mail,” Majorino specifies that Shaw will continue to be “so desperate to please Booth because she looks up to him … she wants to be the female version of him[.]”
But it seems that this evening (unlike last time), Shaw will prove instrumental in solving the case (although that might just be Majorino doing some strutting). And we can’t be surprised by that, considering that Shaw is “so busy chasing after Booth and doing [her] job” to “loosen up enough” for any romantic pursuits.
Then again, maybe we're getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s keep the relationship talk on the back burner until maybe the character’s third appearance, eh?
