Fans will finally meet the mother of Seeley Booth in the finale of Bones Season 8.

After rumored to be making an appearance for the past few years, Marianne Booth, mother of Seeley (David Boreanaz), will appear April 29. She will be portrayed by actress Joanna Cassidy.

As Bones fans know, Booth's mother abandoned her son a quarter century ago.

This spring, she unexpectedly reappears in his life at an inopportune time.

Bones Quotes

You nurture me. You protect me. You are my home. If I were to damage that by a meaningless dalliance, it would be like killing myself -- something I would never do.

Brennan

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.
