“It’s big and it’s red,” says Angela. Any Bones follower would know just from those five words that she’s talking about Booth’s “Cocky” belt buckle. And with fans wondering why he hasn’t been wearing it as of late, it’s causing more commotion than when Brennan first gave it to him.

On the subject of this much talked about accessory, Bones creator Hart Hanson Tweeted, “It’s not a mistake that Booth isn’t wearing his cocky belt buckle. It’s a decision Booth has made either consciously or subconsciously.”

Hmm, could its absence have something to do with Booth’s current fling with Hannah? All signs point to yes! And although Booth can be seen wearing a belt buckle in “The Daredevil in the Mold,” it’s not the belt buckle. What gives, Seeley?
