Bones Season Finale Recap: 5.22 “The Beginning in the End”

‘Bones’ season finale: The times, they are a-changin’

Source: Zap2it.com

Bones-Booth-Brennan-Beginning-in-the-End-320.jpgDeep breaths, everyone. Deep breaths! Okay. So. The “Bones” season finale was pretty much a textbook example of a game-changer — by the end of the episode, the main characters had scattered to all corners of the globe for the next year!

But let’s take a Brennan moment and think rationally: This wasn’t a series finale, much as it felt like one. The next season will simply pick up a year later, and everyone will be back together again, right? RIGHT?? Good. Let’s just hope they “evolve” in the right direction, if they aren’t going to pick up right where they left off. But I’m getting ahead of myself…

The Case: This was definitely one of the more dramatic body reveals — a seemingly endless avalanche of junk breaks through an apartment’s ceiling, followed by a decomposed corpse. Sure, the kid in the apartment looked happy about it, but he’s totally gonna have PTSD flashbacks every time he gets something off the top shelf of the closet and everything falls down on him.

The victim, an agoraphobic hoarder, was hacked up by a fan before getting trapped under junk and starving to death. Sweets classifies him as a “level five hoarder.” If you level up to six, can you cast spells to lift piles of junk off yourself? Angela uses a fancy mass recognition program (picture Hodgins as Pac-Man and the most important pile of junk as a bunch of cherries) to lead them to a spot where something valuable was taken.

Apparently, the victim had gotten his hands on an extremely valuable Fiestaware gnome from 1941, which was made using uranium. Seriously? (Seriously.) A collector had stolen the gnome from him, but in the end it was a former coworker and lover who accidentally killed the victim, pushing a fan at him in the struggle that ensued after she tried to force him out into the sunlight. And that, my friends, was Booth and Brennan’s last case together. Well, their last case together for a year, at least…

Booth and Brennan: Bones is our first offender, getting so jazzed up about super important ancient remains found in the Maluku Islands that she’s distracted from the case, even making mistakes. (I know!) She at first claims to be questioning if the work she’s doing at the Jeffersonian is “worthless” compared to a historic dig, but then confesses that she just needs a break: “I’m worried all the time. Worried that Booth might get hurt on a case and I couldn’t prevent it, worried about what our partnership means … I just need some perspective so that I can view my life with objectivity.” Okay, that’s actually quite the admission on Brennan’s part, and absence makes the heart grow stronger, right?

When Brennan is asked to head up the project, she refuses to make a decision before talking to Booth, her partner. His mouth says “It’s okay,” but his lack of eye contact speaks volumes, so much so that even Brennan picks up on it. Booth, however, is himself being courted by the Army to train soldiers in Afghanistan. With Parker encouraging him to go be a hero he decides to bail on DC as well, rather than do his job without Brennan.

Brennan hopes they’ll pick up where they left off after a year, but Booth reminds her that things evolve over time. I wonder if he’s hoping they’ll evolve in a certain direction while they’re apart, or if he’s given up hope and is escaping into the Army as a distraction.

Caroline dispenses a lot of tough love, insisting that they clear the case before they leave and then confronting them after they protest that it won’t be their last case: “Trust me. The way you two are running from each other, you’d better be damn sure of these little trips you’re taking.” One of these days Caroline is just going to snap and lock Booth and Brennan in a room together until she hears naughty noises through the door, I swear to god. When Sweets suggests that solving the case might make them want to stay, Caroline tells him to “grow the hell up.” Awww, the anger is just her special way of expressing how much she cares about those two.

At the airport, Brennan says all her other goodbyes and looks for Booth as her flight boards. Suddenly he’s there, looking quite dashing in his Army uniform — he had to sneak off the base to say goodbye. Man, they beg you to come back and then they make you sneak out to say goodbye to the partner you left for them? Sort of? Harsh! He tells her to be really careful in the jungle, and she points out how much more dangerous Afghanistan is, telling him not to be a hero … not to be himself. Great line. Loving, but not overtly so.

It looks like Booth is going to kiss her, but instead he grabs Brennan’s hand and tells her that they’ll meet at the reflecting pool in one year — she knows exactly the spot he’s talking about, of course. He reluctantly lets go of her hand and they both walk away, and then both look back, so sadly. At this point I maaay have yelled something along the lines of “Why are they doing this?!?!” at my television.

Sweets and Daisy: Daisy has also been offered a spot on the dig in Indonesia, much to Sweets’ dismay. And she probably doesn’t make things better by saying her career means “everything” to her, and suggesting he become a pearl diver. Hodgins, always the romantic, thinks Sweets should go, but Sweets isn’t sure he wants to give up his entire life like that. Dude. It’s a year on a tropical island. You’re a supergenius with like twelve degrees — I’m pretty sure you could get your job back after a sabbatical.

And so he not only doesn’t go with her — he also thinks it’s best that they not wait for each other. Um, seriously? Weren’t they engaged? Even if he won’t follow her to Indonesia, he can’t spend a year doing the long-distance thing with the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life? Sweets, Sweets, Sweets.

A) I now question any advice he’s ever given as a psychologist, and B) He really does need to grow the hell up. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the woman he loved! Maybe this is karmic repayment for Daisy suggesting to Brennan that she and Booth might be holding each other back. (…Or maybe Sweets was just looking for an excuse to get out.)

Hodgins and Angela: Angela’s dad is back, and he recruits Hodgins to steal his car from some bikers who won it in a card game. Angry dogs are involved, but Sweets mesmerizes them with his mad cat-imitation skills. Awesome. The whole thing was sort of a test, and after Angela’s dad and Hodgins escape (sans Sweets), her dad gives Hodgins the car as a sort of “welcome to the family” present.

He won’t be using it for a while, though, because Hodgins and Angela are headed to Paris for a year rather than break in a new agent and anthropologist. So … it’s just Cam and the NotZacks at the Jeffersonian? Bummer for Cam…

Odds and Ends:

  • This really felt like a series finale, didn’t it? I’m still processing, and reeaallly not looking forward to having to wait around all summer!
  • No matter how you all feel about it, can we agree that it surpassed the extremely low bar that was last season’s finale?
  • Operating under the assumption that the show will skip forward a year, I’m interested to see how the characters change. I honestly think it’s a pretty good excuse to shake things up in that department without changing the cast around too much (cough”House”cough).
  • I will note, however, that I don’t want Booth to turn into a cannibal’s disciple after returning from the Army. (And speaking of returning, is it optimistic of Booth to think that the Army would let him come back after a year?)
  • It looks like Brennan’s headed toward a revelation of her own, but I wonder if Booth will still feel the same way a year from now, or at least feel so motivated to act on his feelings. A lot can happen in a year…
  • No mention of Hacker or CatFish, for the record.
  • There’s a Ramen spectroscope? I feel like there’s a really great noodle joke in there, but I can’t quite get to it.
  • Loved that Hodgins gave Brennan a guide to everything poisonous in Indonesia, but I loved Brennan’s “I love you, too” reaction even more. Seems Booth told her that “the proffering of overly solicitous advice is indicative of love.” Ha! And aww!

Quotes:

  • Cam: “I think I’ll be happier downstairs with the dead stuff.”
  • Brennan: “You didn’t look like buddies.” Booth: “What, all of a sudden you can tell stuff like that now?”
  • Hodgins: “I’m so turned on by her brain … I’d like to see her brain totally naked.” Sweets: “That’s a terrible image. Just terrible.”
  • Sweets: “Mr. Adventure is here, and ready to kick some biker ass.” Cam: “Please don’t explain.”
  • Suspect: “Would you mind turning him around?” Booth: “Why? Because the gnome knows what you did, and you don’t like him staring at you with his soulful little eyes?”
  • Angela’s dad: “It’s been my experience that if you drive at ’em, people get out of the way.”
  • Brennan: “I can provide you with a list of forensic anthropologists who can do this job.” Cam: “No, Dr. Brennan, you can provide me with a list of forensic anthropologists.” Brennan: “I don’t know what that means.”
  • Cam: “I’ve really enjoyed working for you, Dr. Brennan.” Brennan: “In fact, Dr. Saroyan, I worked for you.” Cam: “We both know better.”

Bones Season 6 Spoilers: Big Changes!

Exclusive: ‘Bones’ boss promises ‘big changes’ next season

Bones-finaleImage Credit: Greg Gayne/FoxSPOILER ALERT: If you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. I repeat, if you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. For the last time, if you have yet to watch tonight’s Bones finale, stop reading now. Everyone else, onward and downward…

A word about the season finale of Bones, in which the entire Jeffersonian team — Booth and Brennan included — split up: whoa! That said, let’s ask executive producer Stephen Nathan one of the only two questions you have — and since “WTF?” is rather a rude query, I’m going with, “Okay, what next?”

“The start of the season will have Booth and Brennan meeting [12 months later] at the coffee cart, and the series will start again… though on very different footing,” he says. “There will be big changes.”

Big as in, maybe B&B don’t come back alone big? “Perhaps not alone,” Nathan teases, adding, “There’s a potential for a new recurring character or two next season.”

But don’t freak — or try not to, he pleads. When the Jeffersonian team reassembles, your favorite characters will all be there, and they’ll “be the same people, [just] with one solid year of independent life under their belts. So when they see each other again, they will be different.

“Our intention was to really shake things up,” Nathan continues, “so that we don’t just come back with the same dynamic.”

Bones Season 5 Spoilers!

In the September 17 season premiere: The episode features a time jump that’s longer than two weeks but less than six months. And an MRI holds the answer to one of the show’s biggest questions. (Michael Ausiello)

“Rosie is out of the picture for now,” confirms series creator Hart Hanson, who adds that “Angela and Hodgins belong together every bit as much as Booth and Brennan — perhaps more. And they will get there. But it’ll be a rough, rough road.” (Michael Ausiello)

In the season premiere, Booth says those three little words…and Brennan says them back. Does it stick? You’ll have to tune in September 17 to find out. (Watch With Kristin)

Booth will demonstrate some pretty strong feelings for Bones right off the bat . . . and they might not be good. (TV Guide)

‘Bones’: Will Booth & Brennan smooch in the season premiere?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Davidboreanaz The much-hyped Booth/Brennan sex scene which turned out to be little more than a figment of someone’s imagination came and went a couple months ago, but the cast of “Bones” is now back at work and we’re starting to hear a bit of intel on the upcoming fifth season premiere.

Will fans have a reason to smile again? Think so.

First of all, Booth’s amnesia? Not really an issue, at least not in the traditional sense. Apparently, when Booth asked Brennan who she was in May’s finale, he didn’t mean to imply that he didn’t remember her. Apparently Booth just wasn’t sure whether she was his partner, Bones, or his wife/baby mama from the hallucination/alternate reality he experienced while drugged up.

Because of his confusion, we’re hearing Booth will continue to struggle with romantic feelings for the good Dr. B throughout the season premiere and may even kiss her after rescuing her from a dangerous situation.

But just because B/B are sort of taking steps forward in their relationship, there’s no reason to think they’ll be back in the bedroom anytime soon. Executive producer Hart Hanson has already said that there won’t be any sex between them this season… a pretty daring statement to fans, many of whom are still bitter about getting blue balled by the season finale.

However, Hart and his cohorts were the ones who insisted the finale sex scene would be real, so it’s certainly possible that the whole “no sex this season” stuff could just be another bait-and-switch to prevent the surprise from being ruined.

Oh and p.s., on the non-relationship front, EW.com is reporting that Cyndi Lauper will be making her “Bones” debut during the season premiere as a psychic who attempts to help Booth and the squints solve a murder. Anyone else hoping this inspires Brennan to do an encore performance of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”?

Brennan was so on the baby train last season on Bones! How can she be going back now? She’s not going back as much as she’s staying undecided and unpredictable. (All the better to torture us with!) As Bones star Emily Deschanel told us when she was at the Monte Carlo TV Fest last week, “I loved the fact that Brennan was adamant about not having children, because with so many female characters it’s just a given that they want children, and I think that is a wonderful choice. I think its important to have people represented who have made the choice not to have children. But I also love and respect the fact that she’s unpredictable, and she did make that decision that she wanted to have children. These characters are so unpredictable, they have contradictions, and that was one thing I loved from the beginning of the show.” Source: E!Online

Will Angela’s old flame Roxie return to Bones next season? We caught up with Roxie (Nichole Hiltz) herself at the Los Angeles Times’ Envelope Emmy screening series, where she told us that she will not be back on Bones: “Not that I know of, unfortunately, but I loved being on that show. I loved playing that part. I wish it had gone on longer and been fleshed out a little bit more. Michaela Conlin is honestly one of the sweetest, loveliest girls I’ve ever worked with. There was no awkwardness whatsoever. I had a great time on that show. It’s a good cast.” Source: E!Online

“Booth’s problem isn’t remembering who Brennan is,” [Hart Hanson] tells me, “it’s remembering which Brennan she is. ” Source: The Ausiello Files

Emily Deschanel Says a Bones-Booth Pregnancy Unlikely Next Season

Source: Kristin on E!Online

Not only did Bones and Booth not have baby-making sex on Bones last season, they probably aren’t going to creating a l’il Brennan anytime soon, as Bones star Emily Deschanel says it’s unlikely her character will become pregnant anytime soon.

“There are complications along the way of [Temperance and Booth] discussing having children,” Emily explained during an appearance at the 49th Annual Monte Carlo Television Festival in Monaco. “I think it’s very possible she will be pregnant in the future but I don’t think its going to happen right away. I think she has some growing to do.”

“Everyone is aware that once you get the two characters together you lose that glue that holds the show together, which is that sexual tension,” she said. “I think they are being very careful about how to move forward without destroying that tension.”

Emily also revealed part of season five’s guest-star lineup, which includes a very famous lady rock star…

Apparently performer Cyndi Lauper will be stopping by next year. Emily said, “I don’t think [Cyndi] will be playing herself, but I’m not sure what role she’ll play, they’re debating it now.” Emily says the guest gig came about when, “I sang ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ in one episode. She saw it and was interested in being in the show. She was an idol from when I was a child so I will probably be beside myself that day.”

Stephen Fry will also be back, and it’s still true that Emily’s sis Zooey Deschanel may stop by the Bones set one of these days. (FYI, Emily’s cinematographer father Caleb Deschanel has directed a Bones episode, and her mother Mary Jo Deschanel, an actress, guested on House last season as Kutner’s mourning mother.)

Emily says of the possible sister act, “[Zooey] is interested in being on the show, and I know [Bones executive producer] Hart Hanson would love to have her on the show. It’s just a matter of finding time where she’s available…It’s very difficult because she’s always working as an actor or touring as a musician or recording, she’s very busy. So just getting the time together to get her to work on bones has been difficult but hopefully by the end we will have her on the show.”

Bones Season Finale Episode Recap ‘The End in the Beginning’ – It was all a Dream!

‘Bones’ Finale: What the hell was THAT?

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Remember when some Obama press conferences threatened to bump this episode of “Bones” to next year, and fans raised a stink to make sure we got to see it? Perhaps our president was just looking out for us…. Yes, “Booth” and “Brennan” get busy — naked busy. Yes, they proclaim their love for each other. Yes, “Zack” returns. Yes, we see all the various lab assistants, and Jared is there, and Max, and Carolyn… and none of it matters, because it’s either Brennan’s new book (which she wisely deletes) or Booth’s coma-induced hallucination. Possibly both. What it isn’t is any good. “People say you only live once — but people are as wrong about that as they are about everything else.” So sayeth Hodgins’ voiceover, which ushers us into some B&B nookie. They’re smiley and happy and the bom, it chicka-wows, for about 5 seconds. But this Booth isn’t our Booth, and this Brennan isn’t our Brennan, they’re married nightclub owners, and a body is discovered in their club — “The Lab.” Just about all the recurring characters we’ve run into are connected to the club in some way:

  • Zack = Brennan’s assistant
  • Wendell = the club’s “doorman”/Booth’s heavy
  • Fisher = the club’s chef
  • Vincent Nigel-Murray = the club’s DJ
  • Angela = the club’s hostess
  • Hodgins = a pulp mystery writer who frequents the bar
  • Sweets = a bartender and aspiring musician
  • Daisy = a… slutty girl who has some unspecified role at the club and no rhythm
  • Cam = a detective
  • Jared = Cam’s partner — and he’s still Booth’s brother
  • Max = a corrupt councilman
  • Carolyn = the club’s lawyer
  • Clark = C-Synch, a rapper and MC who wants to play the club
  • Arastoo = a Persian real estate magnate who wants to buy the club
  • Gormogon = the name of Sweets’ band
  • The Gravedigger = a potentially mythical mobster who controls the city, and has Max in his pocket.

The dead guy was found in the bathroom, knocked out a shot in the head. Brennan — Bren in this incarnation — was working late but heard nothing. Cam thinks she must be having an affair, but of course she’s not because she and Booth — here it’s called Mr. B — are so very, very in love. The dead guy is was a mob heavy. Was he sent by The Gravedigger to intimidate Booth for not paying protection money? Was he sent by Arastoo to intimidate them into selling? Was he sent by C-Synch or his gangster brother to  intimidate them into booking him in the club? Was he pulled bodily from the nether regions of the writers’ after a particularly bad Jägermeister-and-hot-wings binge? Who knows?

Everyone at the club thinks Mr. B did the deed, because he loves Bren so very much and would do anything to protect her. So they go about obstructing justice 3in various ways — Zach handles the gun, which he finds in Vincent’s DJ equipment, destroying any prints that may be on it. Angela neglects to show a map of the club she drew for the dead guy — she wants to be an interior designer, so…. she draws floor plans of existing clubs on napkins?). Zack and Sweets hide, then destroy, Bren’s coat, which was used as a silencer. The list goes on.

After some banter and a few clues — Max says Jared works for The Gravedigger! Cam says Jared has a thing for Brennan! Max tells everyone not to use cell phone, because They can track your every movement! — Bren, Mr. B and Cam figure out that Jared was the culprit. He killed the mob heavy to protect Bren, because he loves her. He looks like he’s going to commit suicide by cop/Cam, but Bren gets between them and convinces him to put down the gun. Then Mötley Crüe plays, and it looks like Jared will walk for lack of evidence, and everyone lives happily ever after.

All of which served to kill time until we got to the big moment — our Brennan, the real Brennan, at the real Booth’s bedside when he wakes up. The operation was a success, but he had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and he’s been in a coma for four days. Booth talks about how real that weird dream he just had felt, then looks at Brennan. “Who are you?” Dun dun DUN! Wait, they had to give us 43 minutes of pointless story just to get us to that one moment? Really? Sigh.

Highlights, thoughts and odds and ends

  • The show apparently hoped to distract us from the train wreck of a script by giving us some decent lines and some fun visuals. We see Booth in a sleeveless shirt, and later in his boxers and a shirt. He also sports a fetching pink robe at one point. Brennan is working the four-inch stilettos and pencil skirts.
  • Bren is still very logical, while Mr. B is all emotion
  • Fisher, on Zack’s reaction to discovering the body: “He screamed like slutty girl number one in a teen horror flick.”
  • UnSweets on his employment: “I’m a bartender. I’m practically a psychologist!”
  • UnCam accuses Bren of being a cold fish. Mr. B disagrees — “What you are is Iceland — cool to the touch, but underneath you’re all volcano.”
  • UnVincent, when he and UnZack find the gun: “I’m English. We don’t use guns. We use our foreheads.” He also describes UnZack as “the type of moron who goes to jail for a murder he didn’t commit…”
  • UnVincent on his prospects after arrest: “I’m not going to fair well in jail. I’m lovely.”
  • Mr. B: “should I be upset that everyone thinks that we’re murderers, or just happy that everyone is trying to help us get away with it?”

I need news about Booth and Brennan hookup on Bones this Thursday! Yes, the Booth and Brennan hookup is baby-making sex, but it’s not just a clinical, uh, insemination.

Bones Season Four Finale Pics, Season Five Preview

On May 14, Bones concludes its fourth season with an episode titled “The End in the Beginning” and a seminal scene in the show’s history: Brennan and Booth… in bed! While we haven’t uncovered any photos of the naked characters, post-coital, we have found a few spoiler pics from the season finale. To wit:

In the Lab

Meanwhile, star Emily Deschanel recently spoke on how the season finale will affect things heading into season five. “I’ve heard many little things about Season 5. You know they’re just beginning to write that now so you know I know less than what they know and they don’t know very much. So I know kind of because it ends with a kind of cliffhangerish thing,” Deschanel said, adding: “I know a little bit what happens after that but it’s hard for me to talk about it without people having seen the episode. But definitely Booth and Brennan will have a new dynamic the beginning of Season 5. As you would imagine since we end up, we’re in bed together in the end of Season 4 but it will, we will have a whole new dynamic the beginning of Season 5. Our relationship will change.”

“Bones”: Are Booth & Brennan really having the sex? Ain’t so sure

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

“Bones” fans were delighted earlier this year when it was revealed that — after four years of the will-they-won’t-they dance — Booth and Brennan will hit the sheets in the season finale. The powers that be have been very clear that the Brennan/Booth sex isn’t a dream sequence or a hallucination (as Booth is experiencing in tonight’s ep). But as information has been leaking out about the final episodes of the season, you have to wonder if they might be planning some other kind of weird move. When I talked with creator Hart Hanson back in May of ’08, he mentioned that he was hoping to do an alternate reality episode… an episode where we would be seeing fan favorites return and also get a glimpse of Booth and Brennan leading a more couple-y life together.  Well, the season finale, “The End in the Beginning” is being called  “an episode with a twist” and it finds “Bones”‘ dynamic duo as owners of a club called “The Lab.” Um, pretty safe to say that ain’t happening in Kansas, Toto. That’s definitely not the world “Bones” viewers have come to know and love… not to mention that there will be a bunch of returning characters in the hour — including Zack, Jared, and Max — which has me further convinced that this could be the alternate reality episode Hart Hanson told me about. So now, the million-dollar question is whether the Booth-Brennan sex happens before the weirdness starts or if it takes place in the alternate reality. I’m really starting to think it’s the latter. Considering that spoilerphiles know Booth is having some major surgery this evening, one has to wonder if this much buzzed about hookup will actually end up being an anesthesia-induced, alternate reality copout. If that ends up being the case, will you cry? Or be cool with it?

Question: Thanks for the Emily Deschanel Q&A. Now tell us what she said about the triangle with Booth’s bro! Ausiello: The events of the season finale will further complicate the triangle, she told me. “Booth’s suspicion of his brother and his inability to fully trust his brother [is heightened]. It will give us some different dynamics to play next season.” Source: The Ausiello Files

Question: Emily said the sex between Booth and Brennan isn’t going to be a dream. What about a hallucination? Ausiello: She also confirmed that it is not a hallucination. I suspect it’ll be something in between the two. A dreamination, if you will. Source: The Ausiello Files

Question: Can you ask Emily Deschanel if, before joining Bones, she had read the books by Kathy Reichs? Ausiello: Sorry, got your question too late. Can I interest you in this answer she gave me about the show traveling overseas again next season? “We’re not traveling at the beginning of the season, but we may go away at the end of the season or the beginning of the next. The intention is to travel again. But the way the next season is going to begin it wouldn’t make sense.” Hmm … the way next season is going to begin? There’s a clue in there somewhere.  Source: The Ausiello Files

Emily Deschanel on Booth-Brennan sex: It won’t break ‘Bones’

Bonessex_lEmily Deschanel admits she finds all the hype surrounding Booth and Brennan’s hookup on Bones next Thursday a little mystifying. “It’s only a few minutes on camera,” she says, “so it feels weird to talk about it so much.” I couldn’t agree more. And to prove it, I’m not going to ask Deschanel… wait a second, did she say a few minutes?! Let’s dish, sister friend!

A lot has been made about what affect the sex will have on Booth and Brennan, but I’m curious what the whole experience has been like for you and David.
EMILY DESCHANEL:
It probably strengthened our friendship, even though this kind of thing can probably ruin a friendship. Honestly, he was such a sweet guy. He was more supportive and concerned for me before we started filming than I would be. He had meetings about it. He’s like, “I don’t want anyone around.” He practically kicked out everyone — even the people who had to be there filming! And it’s a fairly tame scene. He was so protective of me; it was very sweet, actually. He wanted to make sure I felt comfortable. Of course, he also made jokes.

It must have been awkward.
DESCHANEL:
It was awkward, but we were prepared for it. I laughed really hard during our kissing scene last season; it’s just really weird to kiss your co-star. I laughed this time in rehearsal, but I was really proud of myself for not laughing when we actually shot it. And honestly, it is a job. There were technical things we had to worry about.

How drastically will the sex alter the Booth-Brennan relationship?
DESCHANEL:
It definitely changes the dynamic between the characters. But it’s done in a very clever way. [Series creator] Hart Hanson wrote the episode in a way that gets these two characters together — which a lot of the audience was waiting for — but doesn’t dissipate the sexual tension between them and, therefore, ruin the show.

Can you say whether Booth’s medical issues are a factor?
DESCHANEL:
Let’s just say there’s definitely a twist. It’s not a dream, but there are twists. And there are [other] twists at the end of the episode that will be shocking as well.

Does the finale end with a cliffhanger?
DESCHANEL:
A little bit, yeah. It’s not a matter of life or death, but it’s kind of huge. There’s a cliffhanger and it has to do with Booth and Brennan relationship. It puts their relationship in jeopardy.

Is anyone leaving the show?
DESCHANEL:
Not anyone that people love.

Booth and Bones are getting together in the Bones season finale, airing May 14 on Fox! According to Emily Deschanel, “It should be surprising and good. The way it happens is surprising…I’m glad we waited this long. I think Hart [Hanson] wanted to find a clever way to put them together that wouldn’t forever taint everything on the show, and I think he figured a very clever way to do it.” (Watch With Kristin)

Fox has confirmed that Motley Crue will guest star on the May 14 season finale of Bones, performing “Dr. Feelgood.” This sounds like one of Booth’s hallucinations to me, but maybe not.

New Bones Spoilers: FOX will push ‘Bones’ ep to fall, but not the finale…

The fans have spoken: Looks like FOX will push ‘Bones’ ep to fall, but not the finale

So, it looks like Booth and Brennan will get their bedroom time this spring after all. No doubt they have their vocal fans to thank for it. As Korbi reported last Thursday, because of President Obama‘s prime time address tomorrow night, “Bones” is in danger of losing a whole hour of its season to accommodate “American Idol“‘s schedule. And as of late last week, FOX’s tentative plan was to push the “Bones”‘ season finale — which includes the long awaited Booth and Brennan hook up — to fall. However, it seems the tentative plan has been tweaked. Though FOX is not commenting on “Bones”‘ schedule, insiders tell me that a revised version of their spring lineup was released earlier today and though “Bones” will indeed lose an episode this season, the finale hour is no longer the one marked for postponement. Instead, they’ve axed ep 4.18 “Beaver in the Otter” (otherwise known on fan sites as ep 4.24, episode numbers are wonky this season due to several year 3 episodes being pushed last spring). Perhaps the network peeped some of the fans’ helpful suggestions and decided to take their feelings into account. Of course all schedules are subject to change, but I will monitor the situation and keep you updated. Assuming the current plan stands, are you satisfied? Or are you pissed that you’re still probably losing an hour of “Bones” this season? Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Exclusive: Is Obama keeping Booth & Bones out of bed?

So, apparently Booth and Bones may not hook up in this year’s season finale after all. Whaa–? Why? Ask President Obama. I just found out our fearless leader is kind of a c-ck block. Because of Obama’s press conference next Tuesday, a few prime time scheduling tweaks must be made, and the “Bones” finale could end up being a casualty. Though FOX has not yet made a definite decision, word is, the romantic crime drama will lose an hour to “American Idol” since “Idol” obviously can’t just cut an episode. This plan, which FOX is dead seriously considering right now, would push the much talked about “Bones” finale — the episode in which we’ve been promised some no nonsense B&B bedroom action  — back to the start of next season. So, thoughts? If this is something you hard core “Bones” fans can’t possibly accept, you better start commenting, because FOX is apparently going to make a final ruling on this any time now… Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Bones Gets a ‘Toon-Up: Boreanaz and “Stewie” Talk Smack

Bones‘ David Boreanaz, Family Guy‘s Stewie

As Bones‘ Booth ponders becoming a family man, he’ll get a visit from Family Guy‘s Stewie, in a “crossover” episode slated to air May 7. The set-up for this unusual merger of genres: When Bones‘ Brennan asks Booth to father her a child, the normally nonplussed federal agent becomes consumed by the prospect of procreating. That, coupled with an undiagnosed health issue Booth is suffering from, sets the stage for a visit from diabolical Stewie, who tenders advice to the prospective pop. Asked about his Bones drop-by, Stewie said in a statement, “Oh, have you seen it? Was I good? Because I heard they said I was amazing and they want me to replace Emily [Deschanel]. But that’s just a rumor.” Boreanaz, in turn, says that Bones‘ wisecracking guest star “was good during the actual scenes … but between takes he literally vanished — nowhere to be seen. “I guess it’s true that Brits and cartoons tend to be standoffish,” adds Boreanaz. “Or maybe it was a Method thing, I don’t know.” What’s your honest take, Bones backers, on this super-strange crossover?

Zach is most likely going to be in the finale on May 14. And he won’t be the only Bones alum appearing in the episode. “The finale is pretty much going to have everyone who has ever been on the show,” reveals executive producer Stephen Nathan, who says Patricia Belcher (Caroline) and Ryan O’Neal (Max) are among the cast members slated to join Eric Millegan (Zack). “It’s going to be an interesting last episode of the season. Very different for us, but it should make sense in the context of the season.” (Michael Ausiello)

This is a man who wants to be seen by his adoring fans as a Black Metal God, a man who would do – or say he’s done – anything to win their respect. Pinworm even lays claim to the murder of fellow band mate, Mayhem (aka Justin Dancy), assuming that though it makes him legendary, no officer of the law would ever think he was truly guilty. Grinder (aka Daniel Moss): Male, 19-23, sweet face, innocent looking. He is the bassist for the Black metal band, SPEW. On stage he is a hard core, frightening-looking rocker, but when the makeup and costumes are gone he couldn’t be any less intimidating. Grinder replaced his childhood friend, Mayhem (aka Justin Dancy) on bass after his disappearance and like all the other members of the band he seems to claim responsibility for Mayhem’s death. Dr. Sweets (John Francis Daly) and Dr. Wyatt (Stephen Fry) see beneath his on-stage persona and get him to give up information that could lead to the killer’s true identity. Murderbreath: Male, 19-23, very short in stature, diminutive. Murderbreath is the lead singer of a Deathcore band called “Zorch.” He cuts his own throat during one of his band’s shows for the theatricality of it – he wants to be legendary to his fans. Murderbreath tells Booth and Brennan that he didn’t kill rival band SPEW’s old bassist, Mayhem, but that a kid told him where he could dig up Mayhem’s corpse. He admits to finding the corpse, mutilating it and hanging it on his stage as a prop. Serena: Female, 19-23, pretty, sweet-looking but with an edge, think Cat Power or Hayley Williams. Once into the Black Metal music scene. Serena has moved on to a band that plays more mainstream music. She explains to Booth that she and SPEW’s ex-bassist Mayhem broke up when she left the scene to go into lighter fare, but that he had called her six months ago and begged to play in her band. Though she desperately tries to play it cool and jaded for Booth, Serena melts and is truly devastated when she learns of Mayhem’s murder. Dr. Solberg: Female, late-20s to early-30s, Norwegian. She is a Norwegian pathologist who has been called in by her country’s Delta force to determine whether or not a skeleton being used on stage as a prop at a concert by the Death metal band Dod are truly that of a murdered human. Dr. Solberg is Norway’s answer to our Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel). Delta Unit Commander: Male, late 20s to mid-30s, tough, Norwegian. He is the Norwegian Delta Unit Commander brought in by his country to aid in Dr. Solberg’s investigation of a skeleton being used on stage as a prop by the Death Metal band Dod. He doesn’t mind cracking a few skulls to get the answers he needs. Mayhem: Male, 19-23, tall, bigger, husky, like a giant teddy bear. Mayhem is the former bassist for the Black Metal band SPEW. When his mutilated skeleton is found in Norway being used as a prop by the Death Metal band Dod, it launches an investigation into his mysterious demise. Wrath: Male, 19-23, tall, intimidating, like a grizzly bear. Wrath is the very large, very angry and intimidating drummer in the Black Metal band SPEW. Source: SpoilerTV

Episode 4.22: Title Unknown Airdate: May 2009

Episode 4.23: The Girl in the Mask Airdate: May 2009

  • Sergeant Ken Nakamura: Male, mid-30s, handsome, must be Japanese. He is the grieving older brother of murdered 21-year old Sachi Nakamura. He is very intelligent and was fiercely protective of Sachi, whom he’d raised since their parents died 15 years ago. Nakamura flies in from Japan to aid Agent Booth and Dr. Brennan in the investigation of his sister’s murder. He and Booth became friends during an exchange program they both attended on managing organized crime. Anxious to help, Nakamura lets his grief get in the way of his investigatory instincts so Booth forces him to sit on the sidelines back at the Jeffersonian. Dr. Asa Tanaka: Male, mid-20s, ambiguous, androgynous, oddly attractive, must be Japanese. Dr. Tanaka is Japan’s equivalent to Dr. Brennan. Brilliant and acutely scientific, he has flown in from Japan to aid Sergeant Ken Nakamura in the investigation of Sachi Nakamura’s murder. While he’s found by Dr. Brennan to be extremely helpful in the lab, the rest of her staff can’t stop trying to figure out if Dr. Tanaka is a he or she. Source: SpoilerTV
  • We’ll be meeting Bones’ Japanese she-male doppelgänger. (For reals.) Look for a character named Asa Tanaka who is Japan’s leading forensic anthropologist but whose gender is indistinguishable, which confuses the Jeffersonian team when they join forces with Asa to solve the murder of a Japanese national.

Episode 4.24: The Beaver in the Otter Airdate: May 2009

General Spoilers:

  • Yes, the much-discussed sex scene between Temperance “Bones” Brennan and Seeley Booth is going to happen in the Bones season-four finale. No, it is not a hallucination. And yes, oh yes, it could lead to something even bigger for the couple. We just chatted up Bones bosses Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan, and as S.N. jokes, “We did some research and found out that sex is very closely related to having children. We were shocked ourselves.” So what does the sex mean for our fave twosome, and which beloved character is returning for the season finale? Here’s what we know: You longtime fans will be delighted to know that the writer-producers of Bones are taking this step forward seriously. As Hart says, “I think the audience will be very satisfied with the sex scene, and the way that it sets up the next season and the way things unfold between Bones and Booth.” So why the change of Hart after years of putting the kibosh on B&B? He tells us, “The fact is, when we started Bones, we knew that we would never have to face the day of reckoning of when to have Booth and Brennan consummate their affair, because no show ever goes that long. And now here we are. We have to pay the piper. I think it was about six months ago that Stephen and I just quietly between the two of us started talking about how we were going to contend with that huge, hanging sword of Damocles issue of their sex life.” And for the record, the baby issue is key to the decision, at least on Brennan’s side. Stephen explains, “It started with the idea of Brennan-who has been so adamant about not wanting a child for so long-finally realizing that it might be good for her to have a progeny to have someone as brilliant as she in the world when she leaves. So she is thinking about having a child, and she realizes that Booth is genetically an excellent match for her.” Another hint that this knot of storylines leads to a wee B&B Jr.? When asked about future appearances by Booth’s beloved son Parker, Hart says, “Yes, we will see Parker. Of course, Booth’s family life, including his son, fit into our consequences coming up in season five.” As for the actual sex, they haven’t shot the scene yet, but we have solemn promises that it is not the product of Booth’s currently fevered imagination.

  • Look for the return of Booth’s brother Jared this spring. Seems the elder Booth is trying to secure a job for his baby brother, who lost his previous position when he helped save Seeley from the Gravedigger. I’m told the two siblings will get into a huge fight and some damaging words will be exchanged. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • “[Booth] will be going through a major health crisis,” reveals executive producer Stephen Nathan, “which will cause him to hallucinate.” Yikes. But whatever Booth’s ultimate fate (the fact that he’s the star of the show probably bodes well for him), at least viewers won’t be imagining his sweet, sweet lovemaking with his partner. “The last episode[of the season Booth and Brennan are in bed together,” Nathan confirms. “And we can’t have them in bed naked without having sex.” And the morning after? Will there be catastrophic Moonlighting-esque awkwardness? Thankfully, no. “That’s all going to be resolved within that episode,” Nathan promises, “because we also have to resolve the fact that Brennan wants to have a child.”[…] There’s a strong chance you’ll see [Zach] in the season finale. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • According to executive producer Hart Hanson, a series of attacks within the Lab will cause “dissension and suspicion” amongst all of the main players by the end of the season, adding, “It will affect the way each and every character regards the others.” Oh, and the Booth-Brennan sex thing in the May finale? Yep, still happening. Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Booth and Brennan’s first therapist[, Gordon Wyatt played by Stephen Fry,] will come back, though he’s contemplating a permanent leave of absence from psychiatry. He and Sweets will team up to help B&B solve a case, during which, we’ll learn some shocking things about Sweets’ past. Seems his pre-adoption life was more tragic than we were first led to believe. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • What’s the right move when you accidently see your therapist’s woman trying on wedding dresses with another man? Booth and Bones will debate the dilemma — and the merits of marriage — after spying Sweets’ girlfriend Daisy doing this exact thing. But as one couple faces a break up, another couple could be reuniting. Online, anyway. Angela and Hodgins will sign up for the same internet dating service and the computer database seems to think they’re a perfect match. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • After months of teasing, creator Hart Hanson confirmes Bones and Booth will hook up in this year’s season finale. “They’re actually in bed having sex,” Hanson tells me. “And they won’t be able to just walk away from what happened. It will have seious ramifications.” Booth is able to open up after working with his therapist, Dr. Wyatt (Stephen Fry), to confront problems from his dark past. “Booth’s father had some issues, David [Boreanaz] says. “We’re going to find out more about how painful it was for me growing up with that man. My grandfather was a much nicer person.” So nice that it’ll be revealed that were it not for Grandpa, Booth would be dead. Casting will soon get under way for Gramps, a fighter-pilot hero, who will appear in late April or early May amid a Booth family crisis. ” […] Viewers will meet Booth’s father, an ex-military man-turned-barber, later this season or early next. Hanson says Booth’s mom is “probably alive’ but “wasn’t around for most of his life.” Bones’ father, Max, is in limbo due to Ryan O’Neil’s ongoing, real-life legal drama. Source: TV Guide
  • [Roxie will be leaving the show.] Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Tamara Taylor wouldn’t say if it was a boy or a girl [that Cam would be getting], but did tell me the child would be in “the awkward years.” Also, since Emily Deschanel told me Booth and Bones would be in bed together, I had to dig a little deeper. Turns out, it could be a trick! Taylor says, “They’ve been toying around with interesting ideas about alternate realities, where perhaps they’re married, where we’re all in interesting, different roles. So we may get to see it, but it may not be real.” Source: Kristin on E!Online
  • Long time Bones fans know that Cam was a police officer prior to assuming her position at the Jeffersonian, but we’re about to learn a great deal more about Dr. Saroyan’s previous life and how it shaped who she is today. For starters, Angela ain’t the only one with an ex-fiance to speak of. Seems our favorite coroner was once engaged to marry a single dad whose daughter she was very close with. When the ex-fiance is murdered in an upcoming episode, Cam will offer the teenage orphan a new home with her. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • [Exec producer Hart] Hanson says the rotating intern experiment has an expiration date. “We don’t to do the Murphy Brown thing,” he says. “But we’re getting a lot of good stories out of these new people coming in and shaking things up in the lab.” Two more interns are on the way, including a devout Muslim (played by Pej Vahdat) and someone who is hearing impaired (not yet cast). […] The new Muslim intern I mentioned makes Angela a soothing mix tape after her heart is broken by Roxie. Coincidentally, Hart Hanson tells me that the Angela/Hodgins love story is not over. “We’re not done with them,” he says. “But they have some obstacles to overcome.” Source: The Ausiello Files
  • Angela’s romantic relationship with Ms. Roxie won’t last forever. Word is, Roxie will dump our favorite facial reconstructionist, who doesn’t take the rejection well. The upside? I hear she may be jumping into bed with Hodgins and making out with Sweets post break up. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • Seems the Bones duo will be stopping by a strip club and getting a lap dance later this season. Could this be part of Brennan’s new effort to be more human? I’m hearing the brilliant scientist is interested in learning how to better connect with people. Apparently, she’ll enlist the help of Sweets to accomplish her goal. Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV
  • “I think we’ll do a little better this season than just an actual, real kiss,” [Hart] Hanson teases. “But you tell me in about three months whether we’ve succeeded or not. There are a couple of things I’ve already said they’ll do: I’ve said they’ll be naked in bed, and I’ve said she will ask him to father her child. So, I think we’re moving toward something bigger than just a kiss.” What could possibly be bigger that sucking face? Yep, sex was my first guess, too. “The truth is,” Hanson counters, “if two people share a kiss and they’re in their mid-’30s, how long is it going to be before they consummate? My intention is to keep the audience very frustrated.” […] Explains Hart Hanson: “Booth has some issues with his dad, so we may bring in his father this season. We also talked about having his grandfather show up, but I’m not sure that will happen.” Source: The Ausiello Files
