Bones Spoilers: A New Direction for the Series

at . Comments

On tomorrow night's episode of Bones, The Gravedigger goes on trial.

It's a huge development and fans can get an early look at "The Boy with the Answer" via these episode stills.

But many viewers want to look ahead to the May 20 season finale - and, hey, who are we to disappoint them?

According to executive producer Hart Hanson, "The Beginning in the End" will be a major step in the evolution Booth and Bones' relationship, one as significant as the controversial events from the 100th episode.

"The season finale is a good place and a natural place to change the direction of a series, and [in the] fifth season, you've got to do that," Hanson told TV Guide.

Season Finale Pairing

Adds Emily Deschanel, who plays Brennan and is pictured above in a scene from the fifth season finale:

"Huge things happen in the episode, and that does change the course of everyone. But it's funny how subtle things can change people."

Fox isn't giving too much away. In its description of "The Beginning in the End," the network simply says: Brennan helps Booth make a difficult decision.

Got any theories on what that might entail? We'd love to hear them!

Bones Quotes

Bones: My IQ is quantifiably higher than yours.
Booth: You know what, you're the brains of the outfit.
Bones: You have your strengths, Booth.
Booth: Well, I try
Bones: Trying is one of your strengths.

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.
