Bones Spoilers for Season Six: Big Changes, Time Jump Ahead!

at . Comments

Last month, the Bones cast said major changes were ahead on the show's fifth season finale.

They were't kidding. (Warning: stop reading right now if "The Beginning in the End" is sitting unwatched on your DVR...)

On this week's shocking episode, Brennan left for a year-long research project in the Maluku Islands; Booth headed off to Afghanistan; Angela and Hodgins jetted to Paris. The whole gang split up - and while we'll be seeing them again in September, producer Stephan Nathan says some major time will have gone by in their lives.

“The start of the season will have Booth and Brennan meeting [12 months later] at the coffee cart, and the series will start again... though on very different footing,” he told “There will be big changes.”

Choices, Choices

Such as (gulp!) new relationships for Booth and/or Brennan? These two will meet up again, but "perhaps not alone," Nathan teased. He added:

“There’s a potential for a new recurring character or two next season.”

After multiple seasons, the producer said: “Our intention was to really shake things up, so that we don’t just come back with the same dynamic.”

Mission very much accomplished! What did you think of these developments? Are you worried about the show? Or, to cite one of last night's Bones quotes, are you taking the attitude "here's to change?"

I love how ppl are jumping to conclusions, they said that they may both or only one might come back with a signifigant other. I see this as a possible fun dynamic. Boothe and Brennan spent time apart and met ppl cool. Now back togther, their relationship can evolver further in realising they do belong together when these relationships don't work because of Booth and Brennan are together. I think this could actually be fun, but by the end of this season they need to have them get together. Any longer would be too big of a stretch. Then again it's Fox and they do like to screw things up.


i don't think i will ever stop watching BONES, but i would be very disappointed if booth and bones found "significant others", Ecspecially after the episode when they went back to their first case. I do believe that booth and bones should end up together and have at least 2 more seasons!


i think that they are pushing people away from watching the show if booth and bones have different lovers the writers need to get them together sooner or later or else i'll quit watching and others might also


I can honestly say that after the season finale, I have not watch any episodes of Bones. I would always watch the episodes on TV or my DVD copies, and got excited about the coming season but everything has changed. I have no anticipation regarding Season 6. If Sealy and Brennan come back with "significant" others, then I will defintely not continue to watch.


Love Bones,I hope it goes on for two more seasons,but I heard a rumour,chinese whisper,that DAVID B was not returning to Bones.Please,please do not say this is true,or no more Bones for me.


I am hoping they will neither kill our main characters off nor put them up with "so called significant" others in season six. But I do agree that the series should end soon, preferably with a happy marriage for booth and bones.


I won't continue to watch if booth & bones go with other people in season six, that's just a sign of dwindeling imagination on the part of the authors. They should just get married and have kids, period and keep solving crimes. Also would like hodge and ange hook up and zac and gordon to be back. Oh well one can always hope...


FINALE was ok/the spoilers hurt.


no i do not want booth and bones to have significant others. they are each others significant others. i dont want them to just have an end. they should get together. the show wouldnt get sour if they did. in the finale of the 4th seasson we got a taste of bones/booth as a married couple and they were adorable and believable. they should just get together already!!!


Another successful show that ended up pairing the two main characters was CHEERS. So getting Brennan and Booth together can work.

Bones Quotes

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.

Worthy of a manger.
