Brennan to Become Booth's "Rock" on Bones

at . Comments

Booth and Brennan. So beloved are these Bones characters that they made our list of favorite TV couples even though they're not a couple. He's even dating someone else!

In our mid-season Bones report card, we talked about how her recent epiphany in "The Doctor in the Photo" may help Brennan turn the corner and pursue her soul mate. 

Before she can be Booth's lover, though, she must be his rock.

Booth, Brennan Embrace

Executive producer Stephen Nathan says that the upcoming story line about a sniper is going to turn Booth's world upside down - and Brennan will be right there with him.

"Booth is forced to confront the life that he led [as a sniper in the Army] when he sees a guy who's pervert what, to Booth, was a noble profession," he says. "The need Booth has to bring this guy to justice is going to hang over us for the rest of the year."

In the meantime, he will look to Temperance for support. "Whatever his relationship with Hannah, Brennan has always been the closest person in his life," Nathan says. "The sniper will affect Booth and Brennan in a very profound way."

Bones Quotes

Angela: I was talking about the Amalia Rose. The remains have been identified and they're moving them into the exhibit. The press conference is tomorrow.
Cam: Great.
Angela: Yea- not that this is any of my business, but um- I sort of thought that you'd ... be more interested.
Cam: (laughs) Interested, is that what I'm supposed to be.
Angela: I just thought tha-
Cam: That because I'm black, I should be all over this.

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.
