Is this the season Bones finally goes there?
Right now, it appears even the writers don't know.
Series creator Hart Hanson tells TV Line that the first and foremost topic of conversation in the show’s writers’ room these days is, obviously, whether or not the star-crossed Dr. Brennan and Agent Booth should end the current sixth season as a full-fledged couple.
"What happens [as we wrap] between Booth and Brennan is a topic of a spirited, wide-ranging debate. That’s the honest-to-God truth,” he says. “Some people think we should go for it, others are wildly against it. It’s a really interesting debate.”
Hanson and fellow executive producer Stephen Nathan will have to decide soon. One potentially pivotal moment? Groundwork for a possible B-squared hookup will be laid in the 19th episode, which, as we learned this week, finds them trapped in an elevator.
“They’ll be forced together,” teases Hanson, “and they have to figure some things out.”
So ... we're back at square one. What do you think they'll decide - and is it what you'd like to see? Sound off on what you'd like to see transpire on Bones below.
