OK, this is serious, people. TV Line just reported that last week’s episode of Bones  “The Don’t in the Do” got the lowest ratings of the season. Ouch!

We suppose this episode could be considered slightly polarizing. After all, this was clearly a weirdly grotesque, yet super-shippy (if not overly-schmoopy) episode involving a murderous shampoo boy, a bloody wig made from a human scalp, and a, erm, climax in which B&B chased one another up the stairs to get it on with a couple of pints of ice cream.

To us, frankly, this sounds like a dream date – but it seems like audiences were less enthused.   

So we turn to you, Bones fans. What went wrong in this week’s episode?
