Bones Producer Teases "Change" Afoot in Lives of Booth and Brennan

at . Comments

Perhaps this will help Bones viewers breathe a little easier:

Yes, Rena Sofer is guest-starring on the show as a love interest for Booth - but she's only slated for one episode.

Sofer’s Catherine will “cause a little turmoil” in the emotional lives of our favorite crime-solving duo, but executive producer Stephen Nathan says that's a good thing.

“It’s nice to confuse Booth and Brennan every now and then," he told Entertainment Weekly. "You don’t want the show to become predictable or complacent.”

Moreover, as Nathan points out, “Booth has really neglected his personal life. We wanted to see what it would be like for him to [briefly] explore a potential life with another person... and let him see what it’s like to just be a guy.”

The balleyhooed date will take place on the show's April 22 episode. Nathan says it will help Booth and Brennan move “forward towards a bit of a change in their lives."

Might this mean a wedding between the pair? We highly doubt it. But it's fun to fantasize about, isn't it?

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.

I would have thought that someone who's convinced that alien beings built Stonehenge would be a little more open to the paranormal.
