Bones Spoilers Galore: A Marriage Proposal, Dueling Snipers, Emotional Brennan, Friction With Hannah and ... Newman!

by at . Comments

Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan loves teasing us. How else can you explain this: “There will be a proposal coming, probably during February Sweeps,” he tells EW.

“It is my mission to torture the fans with this one. There will be a proposal. It will be a real proposal. And it will move things forward in a way I think the fans will like.”

Who who is it? Sweets and Daisy? Cam and Paul? Booth and Hannah?

Just kidding. It couldn't possibly be, based on Nathan's "way I think the fans will like" quote. Also, in the December 2 episode, she tries to warm up to his son Parker, even though she's not good with kids. We just don't see this lasting long-term.

Then there's this: Nathan calls the December 9 installment “our biggest emotional episode we’ve ever done with Booth and Brennan.” That's when Bones helps solve the murder of a brilliant female doctor who she’s convinced is exactly like her.

When she looks at the victim’s photo, she sees herself, and hears her own voice when listening to the woman's recordings. ”It’s all told from Brennan’s point-of-view,” Nathan says, and it leads to an epiphany from Brennan about how she lives her life.

The parallels Temperance draws from the case lead her "to do something she never thought she would do in her relationship with Booth," which causes friction with Hannah.

“There’s something there that Hannah and Brennan have to contend with. Without giving anything away, I think what’s been the best for us and for the show has been the relationship that’s developed between Hannah and Brennan," says Nathan.

Any theories on what she does and what the friction consists of?

Of the women in Booth's life, Nathan continues, "They’ve become actual real friends, so no matter how difficult it is for Brennan to see Booth and Hannah together, she doesn’t hold it against Hannah. Her rational and logical mind tells her this is not Hannah’s fault."

“So their relationship is a very healthy and very mature relationship between two very strong women, rather than a relationship between two high school girls who are vying for the same guy, or a guy who’s caught awkwardly between two women."

Well, at least for the time being ...

Hannah Burley Picture

"Hannah’s only jealous of Booth’s professional relationship with Brennan because they get to do all this kind of dangerous stuff that Hannah misses from being a war correspondent. All of that is growing to an ultimate shift in the series.”

As for the much anticipated sniper story arc, David Boreanaz directed the January 20 episode in which sniper Jacob Ripkin Broadsky (guest star Arnold Vosloo, who’s signed for three episodes) takes out a recurring character on the show.

“It's great in that Booth, being a sniper, has to confront another sniper who has taken what Booth considers to be a difficult but somewhat noble profession and perverted it,” Nathan says. “Booth always felt that he was doing the right thing."

"Now somebody else is doing something horrible for all the right reasons in their mind. They’ve justified this. So it’s a great character examination for Booth to have to confront.”

Meanwhile, Look for Angela to be showing a little baby bump before the end of 2010, and then get “considerably larger” in February as baby Hodgins' due date draws closer.

”We love this story line because it allows us to do deal with a couple who are kind of our most normal couple in a mix of very bizarre and eccentric people,” Nathan says.

Finally, regarding this week's episode, Nathan is giddy.

Not because of huge shifts in the overarching Bones narrative, but because Wayne Knight guest stars and human remains are discovered in the world’s largest chocolate bar.

“It’s so delightfully revolting,” Nathan says. “We do try to outdo ourselves from week-to-week. It was a rather unique body find. We try to make them as accurate as possible. What would actually happen if this were the case. This one turned out to be so, so gross."

We can't wait. Well, for everything but that last item ...

Festina Lente Exactly.After the proposal,I didn't want Brennan and Booth together anymore.She deserves better than to be his rebound girl

I'm not sure where this writer is taking the audience. Now that Hannah turned Booth down and the remarks he made to Bones at the bar, where does that leave Bones. Would think she is now thinking there will never be anything between them because Booth seemed to be clear there wouldn't be a relationship with her. Very confusing - not sure this story line is going to get them back to the place where they can fall in love, etc. B/B is the whole reason I watch - love the relationship they had and was hoping they would eventually end up as a couple. Will have to follow until the end of the season and maybe not watch after that.

First if all... Hostel in my 1st sentence is hodgela typing this from my iPod sorry and... :) woops I posted twice... One more thing: this show has taught me there is a truth In every lie and as a kid to not let fear take over my life like Brennan sometimes te best of things are right in front of you

Ok just saying...even though I'm more of a hostels fan doesn't mean I cant agree with the whole B/B thing. As a bones fan I'm constantly hoping everything will just happen... but then the series would be over so I'm stuck. This isn't a real proposal I've seen the promos and SWEET'S IS FORCING BOOTH TO PROPOSE!!!! He obviously still has feelings for Brennan... Hannah was his "second choice" the bones he's been waiting for. Thank you Hart Hanson for this amazing show-- even though I only just turned 13 I'm completely hooked... Watching every episode like 3 times!!! Please make Hannah reject booth's proposal she's obviously jealous of the B/B bond they have over their work.

"I really hope Brennan finds someone nice who loves her for who she really is." I very much agree with this Festina Lente. Maybe they can introduce a new guy or a guy from the previous seasons who can fill this up. It will definitely stir things up. After all, a love square is better than a triangle. hahaha!

I'm sorry but I beg to disagree. A proposal would definitely NOT make me happy. If Booth proposes then as far as I'm concerned it'll be over for Booth and Brennan. it doesn't matter whether Hannah says yes or no. f she says yes, then B/B are never going to happen. If she says no then basically Brennan will have become Booth's second choice. He wanted to marry someone else but look she didn't accept and therefore he's coming back to Brennan (and yes, I know he proposed to Rebecca but that was because she was pregnant; nobody's forcing him to propose to Hannah). I really hope Brennan finds someone nice who loves her for who she really is.

I'm really hoping that's true. I've been waiting for Booth and Brennan to get together FOREVER. I, as a fan would be very VERY happy for this to happen. GOODBYE BOOTHxHANNAH

That was my thoughts exactly. It would be either Hannah proposes to Booth and he realises that it's a mistake to marry her because he's still in love with Brennan or he'll propose and she'll say no because she realises that he is in love with Brennan. Either way fans would be very very happy. Or the alternative is that Sweets proposes to Daisy again after someone gets killed by the sniper. He tends to do that after people die lol.
