Ok I just been re-watching some Bones episodes of S4, and the episode where Jared (booth’s little brother) comes to the picture, made realize how much of their dynamic is the same as Damon’s & Stefan’s dynamic. See when Jared came on he was in military intelligence, he had a “better” job than booth, and he seemed “better” than booth.
Jared toke Bones (Breanne) on a data and Streghe#The power of three her with his Military Intelligence stuff, and told her that “booth tends to sabotage himself, that he’s afraid of success” in other words he made booth look and sound bad (sound familiar) and acted as the “good brother” like he hasn’t made mistakes in his life, he also was in denial about his drinking problem, but had no trouble talking about booth’s gambling problem.
The successivo night Jared was stopped da the police for driving under the influence of alcohol, and seeing that he’s in Military Intelligence being stopped for driving under the influence is a very big deal it could cost him he career. At the time booth was working on a case that would have made a career changer, the local trooper offered booth a deal in which that the state police with several FBI agents would take the credit not booth in exchange the police would drop the charges for Jared’s DUI, and booth made the deal the city police toke the credit and he looked like a “loser” in front of Bones (Breanne)
Later on Jared pumped onto Dr. Sweets (a shrink, and a friend of booth’s), and immediately noticed the dynamic, so he goes to Dr. Camille Saroyan (booth’s ex-girlfriend and for the better half a good friend who has known both booth brothers for 15 years) and when he told her and she agreed that he nailed the right dynamic (the dynamic is: that booth always protect Jared from whatever kind of trouble he gets into, and takes the hit) which results in: “Booth’s been digging Jared out of trouble since they were kids, Jared always comes up smelling like a rose, and booth takes the hit”
Breanne later on confronts Jared and realized what really happened “you toke advantage of him te made me think he’s a loser, and what really makes me angry is that I believed you, I wouldn’t blame booth if spoke to me again you’re the loser” she walked way but then came back and pushed off the chair.
My point from all of this is this the same thing between Damon & Stefan, Damon always takes the hit he always do the dirty/hard things that Stefan is too afraid to do, and Stefan always just mentation Damon’s dark side and never his good side.
