Bones Season Premiere Scoop: The Return of Brennan

at . Comments

When Bones returns with new episodes next month, the action will pick up a few weeks after the events in May's season finale.

Series creator Hart Hanson is on record as saying that Brennan will have just returned from a trip to Guatemala, which begs the question:

Did she really leave Booth at such a critical time, following his brain surgery? No, Hanson emphasizes.

"We've set up a few times that when she's really miserable she goes down there [Guatemala] and identifies victims of the genocide down there and there are so many still remaining unidentified," he said. "So when she's really miserable she just throws herself into that. I promise you, Brennan did not abandon Booth. Watch the season opener; you'll see."

We will. It airs on September 17.

Bones Quotes

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.

Booth: You know, when I say heartbreaking you say the heart is a muscle, so it can't break. It can only get crushed.
Brennan: Isn't it heartcrushing?
Booth: You want to go to his funeral?
Brennan: Yes, I would. Then she won't be alone.
Booth: You know what, Bones? Sometimes I think your heart muscle is bigger than people give you credit for.
