At last! Thanks to Sweets (John Francis Daley) and his “shrinking around the bush,” Booth (David Boreanaz) finally opens up to Brennan (Emily Deschanel) about his breakup with Hannah in “The Blackout in the Blizzard.”

While B&B are trapped in the elevator (because of the titular blackout), their conversation turns from bitter to sweet to downright salacious.They think sex would be satisfying for them? Try for us!

But their sex talk isn’t the highlight of the episode: Later, over beers and potatoes — and away from the pressures of the case and the confines of the stuck lift — Mr. Special Agent of Sexiness brings up the subject of them as a couple. After agreeing that they need more time before they can try to be together (really, guys? Six seasons isn’t enough?), Booth suggests they do something he used to do as a boy when he “wanted something really, really bad”: They write dates on scraps of paper when they hope to be ready to explore a relationship — and then they burn them.

They hide their dates from one another (and us, dammit!), but that doesn’t mean we can’t guess. What do YOU think they wrote down?
