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?
