Any time that Caroline Julian shows up on the screen, fans on Reddit take note. As a prosecutor, she often weighs in on cases and at times teams up with FBI Special Agent Booth to question suspects. Her snappy one-liners make her a standout character, one that fans delight in seeing.
U/CoconutLanceSweets posted that Caroline was “one of the most underrated characters ever,” and fans were quick to jump on the bandwagon and sing her praises. “Not sure if she’s underrated, but she’s definitely my favorite character,” commented u/OrionDecline21. “Yea I think she’s exactly rated, but underutilized,” agreed u/dudemann. “She’s an amazing character and everyone knows it. She’s just not talked about as much because we don’t really know much about her. No real history or backstory, just great line delivery.”
Though she is clearly a fan favorite, Caroline arguably doesn’t get the focus that she deserves. In any given episode of “Bones,” the prosecutor shows up to dispense exposition or comedic relief and takes her leave. Many episodes only feature her in a scene or two and leave the main mystery for Bones and Booth to solve. Even though she could do with more screen time, the appearances she does have are memorable. Caroline is one of many women in authority that do not let their expertise be supplanted by anyone else, and she’s always there to offer an alternative perspective and challenge those around, whether they want it or not.
