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?"

never give up on bones i think the sixth seaon will be great. these people dont just make a plain tv series the make great ones with twist's sure i dont know them or i have never met but these people are great people and great people do great things so my opinion is stay tuned the next season will be the best yet!!! unless they dont make a sixth season then i will also be a bit bummed also lol. but im sure they will and i KNOW it will be great! and this is coming from a 14 year old girl. but that's not the point bones has never disipointed me once! so dont give up on it even if you think it's getting crappy or it's not good enough it will get better stuff always does. =D p.s. go emily deschanel for being vegen since she was a teen and she is now 34 GO GIRL WOO WOO!!! lol =D


I love Bones. I have been watching it scince day one, when I was seven. When I look back at that first episode I'm astonished. How Dr. B think she did not change? She's fine with Booth now, argument here and there. "Don't call me Bones" was her words and now it's "Why didn't you call me Bones?" I personally do not want them to see other people. And I think that if they did, it wouldn't make me not watch it. I love the show, B&B together or not. I love their relationship and want them to be with someone they love. The Producers are taunting us, yes. But they do this for a reason guys, they love us! People want B&B together, people don't. I do, desperatly. We all do, I'd like to think. I love Bones, I don't care who does, I want it to go ten seasons. Hanna Montana, hate her. She's been on for seven years. Hate her! And her show is on, God knows how, but it is. Because people believe in her, why, I do not know. I love B&B's relationship. They need to beat her. I go around my school talking to random people "WATCH BONES!!!" Some do some don't. This one girl who I know said that she instantly got hooked and told everyone of her friends to watch it. They all love it. They too want B&B together. But they know how precious this is. Like an egg hatching. Do not rush. Do not help, otherwise it will die. You know what people? Us trying to help is killing the show, for us. Let the show break the egg. See if it survives, if it doesn't, we cannot be blamed for murder. YOU are murduring the show. I've cried, I've squealed and I've squaked over this show. I love it. If you don't than that is okay. Either you murdered this show, or it's killed it's self. Either way, I have faith in all of you to keep watching this show. It's changed my life in ways you cannot imagine. ~Thank you, Temperence Brennen Fannatic OUT!~


i have never seen the finale but i just had to read the spoilers. by the sound of it people dont like this episode but that is not gonna stop me from watching it. i have watched bones from the very beginning it has never ever disappointed me evrer!. my opinion is keep watching it cos i think thing are gonna get interesting i can feel it even if it get's boring or you think it's getting crappy cos these people dont just make a plain old tv series they make GREAT ONES with twist's sure i dont know them and i have never met them but i think there great people and great people do great things so stay tuned it will not disappoint. trust me! =)


As mentioned above Scarecrow and Mrs. King successfully got them together, it doesn't have to ruin the show. After so long people tend to quit watching because it will never take the turn they are waiting for.


WORST finale EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


here is my list of series "R.I.P."
prison break....2 seasons
dexter.... 2 seasons
heroes... 2 seasons
grey's anatomy....4 or 5 ... i can no longer remember and now joining the list ( sadly...again)
Bones.... 5 seasons scientific conclusion on this matter is: This "species" has a mean "interesting" life expectancy of around 3 seasons. OF course, as in all species, there are those few who live longer like House, or HIMYM


In all honesty, I believe if Booth and Brennan ever DID get together, it would ruin the series. Come on, having Angela and Hodges together was good, But having Booth and Brennan together would be too much. I was pretty pleased with the ending of the season.


This show is over. I watched the first three seasons obsessively, now the only thing that holds it together is the relationship between Booth and Brennan, if Fox cancels that they might as well end the show. This really should have been the final season. This episode, having everyone go off in different directions, would have been the perfect ending to the series if Brennan had just told Booth she loved him.


Gosh, what a load of bullshit. I mean, that was not even a game-changer. You know, I'm also a huge Grey's fan and compering these two season finales...well, there's really no comparison. It seems that authors of the show were just boasting about these huge changes that were to come. I really wish that the season finale was the episode about Gravedigger case (of course, with some additional personal plot) because you could at least feel some emotions there- even if it was simply some kind of hatred for Taffet and anxiety between Booth and Bones. Season finale? What was there to feel, really? As for me, just anticipation for what was about to happen and it didn't anyway. For me they directed this episode just the way B&B led their last investigation- without any passion and commitment. They didn't even have the guts to show us something dramatical, they didn't solve any issues. Sending people off is not a big change, it's simply letting the plot hang in air. And having watched Grey's finale I saw that you can mess everything and still get some drama and true emotions out of it. I guess authors of this show were to cautious to do that and I don't know for what's sake cause they are at the point of losing B&B's chemistry. So I guess, as to finish: Mr.Hanson, this is not how you make good TV.


How about another twist. Bones is where ever and Booth has to come in as military to rescue a kidnapped American team, not knowing who he is 'saving', once the job is done, they commit to each other, maybe not as a 'couple' in the engaged sense but as lovers at least.

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.
