... start a relationship? ... decide it's not gonna happen? ... something in between?
We know that the Bones season six finale promises a change in the game. Heck, it's even called "The Change in the Game." The implication there is that on May 19, finally, the relationship of Booth and Brennan will reach a turning point.
Fan expectations have certainly been raised. But will the show deliver?
Referencing a classic show in which two characters finally gave in to their feelings, and in doing so erased the palpable sexual tension fans loved, one member of the Bones brain trust admits it's been a very fine line to walk with Booth and Brennan.
“We wanted to try to have their relationship evolve in a realistic way while making sure the show still had the same tension that has made it appealing for six years,” executive producer Stephen Nathan says. “That said, we know we can’t repeat ourselves.""We will switch it up. It will change the show in a fundamental way - but it will stay the same. We are not going to embrace the Moonlighting curse."
"I can say that unequivocally. You know, half the [fans] are saying ‘get them together, get them together.’ Others say, ‘You cannot get them together. Once you get them together, it’s going to suck. It’s the Moonlighting curse and the show will end.’"
"Well, hopefully, both groups of people will be pleased.”
“We’re excited about where the show will be going. It’s a place that we haven’t seem any show go before. I’m not saying we’re reinventing the wheel or anything, but it’s not where anyone expects it to go,” Nathan promises.
