David Boreanaz Hypes "Big Shift" on Bones Season Finale

at . Comments

This week's 100th episode of Bones has received a lot of attention because it flashes back to the first case on which Brennan and Booth worked together.

But it's also a big deal because David Boreanaz directs the installment. How does the actor feel about the focus of "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole?"

"It’s great to see them get into their personal lives,” Boreanaz told Fancast.com. “But for right now, I still maintain that they should be partners and let’s see what happens and where they go after this season, because it’s a pretty good season-ender.”

Booth, Brennan Embrace

Tell us more about that season-ender, David.

“There’ll be a big shift, not only for [Booth and Bones] but with everybody,” he says. “We shot the last scene last week, and it was very moving. It was hard to get through, but I think that it’s going to elevate these characters even more so for the next seasons to come.”

Very disappointing episode! Really was hoping that after Booth's confession of love for Bones that she would atleast acknowledge that she was feeling something for him. Even if she didn't understand how to express it, that they would continue to carry their relationship into something more. I too was at first speechless with frustration, and then pissed...it just left you saying "REALLY!!??!!" It has taken the excitment and anticipation out of any upcoming episode. I'm just not "DVR" crazy for the show anymore. I think I'll just watch the commercials to see if it will be worth watching. And yes, all the other relationships on the show are taking a hit also. Atleast they could've have kept Angela and Hodgins together to keep viewers watching!


I have watched "Bones"from day one and while they didn't have to get married this season there should have been some progression - Brennan went backwards in her behavior and insecurities - I was very disappointed. I watch every episode and then buy the DVD to watch at other times but Season 5 has been very disappointing.


Seriously, 5 seasons watching every single episode and thats it? We will have to wait more? Are you fuck kidding me? We just want they to be together you don't have to wait until the last episode, you know!? It is possible to keep moving the show, even with them together! I won't stop watching because I didn't get so far to stop now, I have hope! They will be together ! I still love bones!


Series creator Hart Hansen described the finale as "a big deal and a big payoff." PAYOFF!!! No, I would call that a write off!! I don't even watch t.v. and yet I poured my heart and soul into this ONE show!! finally something that was intreging on the emotional as well as the intellectual levels and I was heartbroken! How many fans have writen you their apsolute desires to see something happy on the show, the real players! Booth and Brennan, together! Everyone is unhappy! Hodgins and Angela, getting rid of Zack! You nearly Killed everyone atleast once and now! Now you rip from us the last vestiges of hope we had for happiness on the show!
How cruel of you to be so selfish! Dessperately wanting to keep the show going you throw it in the wrong direction! Failing at more creative writting, trying to wow and shoke the viewer You have Brennan fall apart as if her charecter had never evolved through out and you have Booth weakly take her asnswer in a manner as would a heartbroken school boy! The science, yes is the glue of the show, but you are missing something so very important! The reason why we the masses watch the show, was because it gave us something, just a little taste of true life. It allowed us to escape into a PLAUSIBLE adventure! And one where despite the creulities of the world, love could exsit and THRIVE amungst the dead! It was of science of course, it develed deep into reality where these things could a do happen, but also the human interaction was also real! But after five years, there is nothing left...in trying to make it never end, you killed it completely. I fear you have forgotten that you have a responsiblity to your viewers, you have a resposiblity to know, understand and be devoted to THIER desires! To "wow" them and to calm them, to know the individual amung the masses.
I am now, no longer one of those you hold a resposiblity too. I was more then disapointted, I was ultimately disgusted.


I've really agree with the comments above that we are DONE DONE DONE WAITING for a real relationship to happen with Bone & Brennan!!! The 100th show left me absolutely frustrated and PISSED
in the direction that's heading---If brennan ends up with another girlfriend You've lost me FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've been a faithful fan of Bones since season 1 but come one!!!! They could have given us a bone at least...something to tide us over, give us a little hope. Instead all hopes were ripped to shreds. For all the emotional progress Brennan's character had made, her reaction to Booth's plea was beyond ridiculous!!! And was down right juvenile! I get not going the mushy route but I can be strung along by sexual tension for only so long. They're losing me...my attention span has officially been compromised. I am now completedly irritated with the story line.


Well, that was a complete waste of our time! It is ridiculous to keep stringing the fans along and then to completely go the opposite direction of what they want. As for me, I was very disappointed with the ending and it has left me not wanting to continue to watch the show. Zack becomes a serial killer, Angela breaks up with Hodgins (even though he loves her with all his heart) and now the writers and producers have all but ended the relationship arc of Booth and Brennan. I'm so disgusted that I will probably find another favorite show to watch from now on........


We have waited and waited to see Bones and Booth get together and then the big disappointment of them not. I don't know if I will watch the show again.


Definitely love the progression of the show. Don't forget all you frustrated fans, whenever that major relationship finally gets together, all the excitement is usually gone... think mulder and scully, Ross and Rachel, Jim and Pam! All those shows got less exciting once the couple finally hooked up. So I say, stretch it out as long as possible. Come the series finally, they will be together for sure. (Way to go Hart!)


I wanted to get up and punch my tv after the end of the 100th epidsode this week. I was so happy when Boothe opened up finally and then she shot him down. I AM PISSED!!! I will only keep watching to see if they get together by the last episode of the season. But If they dont I am done.!@!!

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.
