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!

I still don't know where the Brennan wants a baby storyline went. Did I miss something or was that just dropped this season. It was out of the blue last year and then just dropped? I want them together, but I want them to get back to focusing more on the unusual cases.


According the promo videos I found, Brennan is leaving for Indonesia to examing ancient skelletons and the army wants Booth back to train the soldiers. But during the whole 5th season actors and producers with mysterious smiles was talking about big and real season final, brand new step in Booth and Bones' relationship. I've been watching Bones since its pilot. And now it seems that if she kisses his cheek goodbye, it wll be a great event.


i seriously doubt there will ever be a booth and bones wedding. it's just not their style.


So, you think that Brennan finally decides to have a baby and again asks Booth to be the father? That would definitely be "The Beginning in the End."


The difficult decision is whether or not he still wants to have another child. They played around with this storyline in season 4.


I think the last episode she'll go back to her true passion and they will temporarily stop working together, but she'll find something in the start of the next season that will bring booth back into her life and make her realize she likes locking up the bad guy


I think since they work for the FBI they can go undercover as boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife, we get to see some making out everyone is happy. But what I don't get why this year did they make Bones sound so stupid? I think the writers should go back and watch old episodes, come on Booth said ouch and Bones said did you hurt yourself. That's bad writing.


I think by 'ML' Kasie means 'Moonlighting', which is a show that people say went downhill after the main characters got together. It's often used as a justification for why characters on TV shows never get past the will-they-won't-they stage. In reality, it went downhill because the lead actor and actress didn't like each other, there were scheduling conflicts, a lot of the time they weren't even on screen together, and I think there was a writer's strike.
The fact of the matter is that once writers have found a formula that works, they're scared to break away from it too much. If they got their main characters together, they'd have to be a little more creative. I do think it could be done, though.


what is ML?


Break his heart... Break her heart... Break all of the devoted viewer's hearts... THE END. I just can't stand it anymore. This has been a sad way of keeping a show on the air for profit.


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.
