Bones Season Finale to Focus on Change, Upheaval, Unresolved Issues and More

at . Comments

Last night, Bones aired its 100th episode. That's a big deal, and congratulations are in order for the entire cast and crew.

But enough about the past. Let's focus on the future of this great, long-running show. Specifically: what will go down on the fifth season finale?

Star David Boreanaz has already said a "big shift" will take place on the episode, but E! News asked for more information from various key players this week. Series creator Hart Hansen described the finale as "a big deal and a big payoff."

As for Emily Deschanel?

"There are big changes, and decisions are made that affect the future for Booth and Brennan, but also the future for other characters as well," the actress said. "It puts next season in the air, and a lot of things could be very different from what we know on Bones."

Pretend Marriage

Meanwhile, E! also asked the cast members to describe what's ahead in a single word. Their responses?

  • Deschanel: Change
  • Carla Gallo: Upheaval
  • John Francis Daley: Unresolved
  • T.J. Thyne: Tantalizing

Bones airs its season finale on May 20.

This is not Moonlighting, or any other show, \Since it is your intention to make us believe they are sexually attracted by the looks the expressions,the things not said, the relatiionship beyond being partners which has permeated the past seasons it is ludicrious to portray them as ehnuchs! Keep developing the characters, as the differences between them come closers together to accepting who they are and how a "relationship" would enhance them both. HEY I'M JUST LOVING FAN, BUT GET WITH IT!!!!


I really, really love this show!!!!!! I thought the 100 episode was sooooo typical of Brennan. I do think that Booth and Brennan will eventually get together and I am waiting for that. But I have mixed feelings about it as well as I, do not want to see it change the chemistry, the flow and the character of the show. I also am hoping that the upheaval and change has to do in part with Zach. ZACH HAS TO COME BACK!!!!! They still have not and cannot fill the void left by ZACH. ZACH IS DEARLY MISSED!


I absolutely love this show. I did not start watching it until the TNT reruns and had to catch up quickly, thanks to the internet. I would love for Bones and Booth to get together; but it's always the same with these shows JAG, Hunter, Moonlighting we go through this all the time. But yet, we still want them together..right...heck I know I still do. When they kissed I was like yessssssssssssss....and then was like noooooooooooooooo. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. As long as the two main characters are not gone from the show or working in two opposite places I'm still a loving fan forever.


I wanna see what happens when Bones tells Angela, or when Booth talks to anyone about it. I hope Angela smacks Bones upside the head.


I actually enjoyed the 100th episode of Bones. I like the suspense of not knowing when they will finally get together. Did anyone else notice that the 1956 BelAir that was referred to was actually a 1957 BelAir?


I am calling it right now. The season finale will include Booth and Bones being split up. Calling it.
I don't WANT them to, not at all!!!!!! But I think this is the big "change" the actors were talking about. I am almost positive. As to the 100th episode?
Ugh. I cried. I hated it. I loved it. I laughed.
And now, I still want to cry when I think about the end. But I no longer want to kidnap Hart Hanson and force him to change the ending or, at the very least, apologize and promise to fix it... well, I guess a part if me still wants to, just not as a big of a part; it's under control now. If Booth and Brennan had gotten together then? Eh. I am nervous as to how it would work out. I want them together, God yeah. But I don't want them to have a family and a kid and have that aspect take over the show. One of the main reasons I watch the show is for their chemistry. I am afraid it would change- for the worse- if the two B's got together romantically. (Yet a part of me wants to totally believe in the writers' abilities and scream "JUST GO FOR IT ALREADY!!! STOP PROLONGING THE INEVITABLE!!!!")


I have watched every episode at least once and this reminds me of Moonlighting which also ticked me off.I wanted to throw something at the TV after last week and will be hard pressed to watch and be disapointed any more.


You are not going to wait for ten years. o.o They're probably gonna be together by the end of the season, hopefully. The writers know that B&B just can't up and go out. I for one loved the episode. The ending didn't like it until I knew why they did it. Maybe they'll get together in the season finale. Again, unlikely, but a probability. :)


I cannot believe the 100th episode. I was so upset! It's JAG all over again, which I endured for 10 seasons and did not even get to see the wedding, because the show was cancelled. I cannot wait for 10 years again. I realize that Booth or Bones each have their own set of issues, but it's illogical to not try. Booth has not ever asked Bones to change, but she acted like it was all about her changing. What a mess.


Holy crap, took the words right out of my mouth. I loved it, kind of didn't like the ending, but I know each side of the personality... A forensic scientist, using evidence and being careful not to ruin it, and a gambler, someone who throws caution to the wind and just does. I loved it and I can't wait until the next episode. I wonder how this will play. :)

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.
