Bones Spoilers: The Tipping Point For Brennan

at . Comments

Brennan will be plunged into an existential crisis this week on Bones. That much has been widely documented for weeks now. How she responds to it will be the interesting part.

In case you haven't heard, a major Brennan-centric episode airs tomorrow, and the Bones clips we posted yesterday hint at the reason why: A case that resonate like no other.

Brennan's investigation of a workaholic doctor's death forces her to examine her own personal life (or lack thereof), and to take some bold action, TV Guide says. The result?

A Better Look

Bones is the best at what she does ... but at what cost?

"We see her feelings about [Booth and Hannah] more," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She's trying to make the best of it, but it's extremely emotional for her."

Oddly, Brennan's move may elicit more of a response from Hannah than Booth.

"The relationship that these two women begin to forge is going to determine, to a large extent, what happens between Booth and Brennan," Nathan says, cryptically.

Theories on what Bones does, and how it will impact Booth and Hannah?

I am disappointed with the new season except for Brennan revealing that she regrets her decision not to be with Booth.I agree with other viewers that the show has gotten boring. I miss the sexual tension between Booth and Brennan, i wish they would get together. What's wrong with a crime fighting couple that's in love with each other!!!! Writers/producers, PLEASE PUT BOOTH AND BRENNAN TOGETHER!!!!! Add a kid, they look really great with the baby in the Baby Andy episode:)


Bones this season sucks!!!! All the progress from previous seasons has been lost Her character seems to be devolving and the Hannah story line, what the hey???? If Booth really loved Bones how could he just be totally in love with Hannah, and what...he is suddenly going to to turn around and change his mind again!! Brennan needs her own love interest cause this love story has totally lost its edge, what are we waiting for booth to get bored with Hannah or her to leave him or die so that what Brennan can be second best Have watched since season 1 and am totally sick of this show bones and brennan being a couple would have been a natural progression in the show


Why choose? Polyamory is the wave of relationships future. Sure his character is Catholic and works for the FBI. What difference does it make if he doesn't marry one or the other, but loves both? Why kill off a perfectly interesting character or mess up he series by him marrying Hannah and pining over Brennen or Brennen pining over him. That would be a House-like mess of jump-the-shark proportions.


In another post it said that there will be an engagement, and here it said Brennan's move may elicit more of a response from Hannah than Booth. I am really not hoping that the engagement is not with hannah and Booth, because if it is, i will be to devastated to watch this show. But since Booth has confessed that he "loves hannah" than maybe agent Sully can come back. But as the end result hopfully by the end of the season, that Booth and Brennan will finally be together.


I too was very disappointed on this episode, it hurt to see Brennan be made even moreso out of place, she has been trying so hard but, to no avail, I love "Bones" either in reruns or new episodes but, this even made me hurt! Let's try to get to where the old "Bones" use to be and we enjoyed the humor and story lines. Unless this is going to be the last season for the show, how sad to end this way!


This is making me so sad for Brennan. I don´t get people who think this is a good thing for her. It will make her grow.
To me it´s like seing the geeky girl at school being bullied and thinking it´s good for her.
The only way i will ever be able to see Booth as a good guy again will be if we get a really really good explanation for his behaviour. It´s not ok for him to keep on hurting her because she said no and hurt his ego.
It would have to be something like the tumour having grown back and changed him as a person. Otherwise this just proves come jan we will still get the Hannah/Booth soapshow. It´s not enough reason to put up with that bull just to see them get it right in the last episode. If they are going for real life here to me that would mean Brennan would never never beleive in him loving her again and put herself up for more heartbreak. I hate to see the show end in such a bad sour way.


I agree with all the above comments. I don't understand if the writers are intentionally trying to make Hannah so unlikeable. Plus, how is Hannah not second place? She's totally a rebound after Booth got rejected by Brennan. Not enough time has passed for him to suddenly find some other woman and fall in love with her, it's so ridiculous. Bitch needs to die, and fast!


I am devastated by this episode. There seems to be no hope left for getting the real Bones back. Emily Deschanel is an amazing actress. Her performance was stellar. Booth is so cold and unfeeling; he must have completely lost touch with reality. Hannah has really dumbed him down if he truly believes that she was not a consolation prize at the loss of someone like Brennan. He has never ever been this cold to Brennan. A well-done triangle shows that there are still feelings there for Brennan; not here. Booth is like a stone. I am surprised that he could take time away from Hannah to come "save" Brennan. I was waiting for the savior to turn out to be Micah, who seems to care much more for her than Booth does. I cannot believe that we did not even get one quality conversation between Booth and Brennan. This episode sealed it for me; I am done.


Well said. Why are they keep on going with a Hannah/Brennan friendship. There is only one thing in this epi i want to see and that is ED amazing acting in this emotional breakdown. As it will not change anything for this Hannah/Booth soapshow, theres no reason to watch. Watching the promo with them at the dinner. I see that jerk Booth seems to getting even worse. Looks like he uses Brennan as a party-trick. - Look at the freak. Brennan looks so sad there and the others appaled. I hope Brennan will tell him they can´t be partners anymore


Uhm... right. And how is it interesting that the relationship Hannah and Brennan are going to forge may or may not determine what happens between Booth and Brennan? What makes it a storyline worth watching? So far, Hannah has come across as self-centred, spoilt, and to some extent adrenaline-addicted journalist who followed Booth around the world because it would be fun (and sorry, but I see no indication from her that she really loves him, just that she enjoys being with him and having sex; her reluctance to meet Parker indicates that she's by no means committed to the relationship). Either this characterisation is intentional or it's an epic fail by the writers. If the latter then please get rid of her as far as possible, it's not working. If the former (and Hannah is intentionally being characterised as essentially superficial) then I ask again: what's the point? To show us a contrast with Brennan? We don't need Hannah to show us that we should love Brennan - in fact we already love her very much. Is the point of Hannah to make Booth realise that he's fallen in love with a selfish woman who is truly incapable of love, unlike Brennan? If so, then I would truly lose all respect for Booth's character because he should know these things about Brennan. Even if he's convinced that she doesn't love him, there's no way that the contrast with Hannah would in any way cast Brennan in an even more positive light that she already is in. If you want to make the point that even after trying very hard to fall in love with a strong, independent, interesting woman, Booth still comes back to Brennan because she's better than even the most interesting woman he ever meets then please find me that woman and show me. Coming back to Brennan after all this basically means 'you're second choice after someone as superficial, self-centred and manipulative as Hannah'. Yuck. And yuck again. I'm expecting less and less from this episode.

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.
