Bones Creator, Star Defend Season Finale, Look Ahead

at . Comments

Hart Hanson, the creator of Bones, was faced with a difficult task at Comic-Con last week:

Defend an unpopular season four finale, in which Booth and Bones - after months of hype - only had sex in the former's dream sequence. Most audience members were clearly jilted at the tease of a storyline.

"I hope in retrospect the season finale will become more and more likable to our loyal fans," Hanson said. "Though I think the loyal fans got it. The people who tune in every once in awhile didn't like it as much. And I definitely heard about it."

So, will the partners in crime ever get together? Should they?

"I think they are two people that do belong together," said Emily Deschanel. "I think they complement each other in great ways. I would love to see them together. But I do see that it's dangerous. It's tricky because you don't want to lose the sexual tension between us."

As for season five...

  • It picks up six weeks after May's finale; 
  • Brennan has just returned from a trip to Guatemala;
  • Her baby plans are on hold and Booth is still in a state of confusion.
  • Guest star Cyndi Lauper will give Brennan insight into her relationship with Booth.

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
