David Boreanaz Dishes on Fate of Seeley Booth

at . Comments

Yes, Seeley Booth will likely recover from the brain injury he suffered to conclude season four of Bones.

After all, Fox has renewed the show up for two more seasons.

But how will the agent's surgery affect his behavior when the series returns in September?

"It's an interesting thing that's going to happen," David Boreanaz told reporters on Friday when the summer TV press tour visited the Bones set. "What I really want to maintain with the arc with him... is that he does have a remembrance of certain things, but he's not as adept at other things as he thought he was."

Such as?

"Whether it's knowing how to interrogate someone, and he doesn't do a certain thing and [Brennan is] looking at me going, 'This is what you usually do,' and I'm just a tad slow on that - those are the little nuances they kind of discover," the actor added.

Speaking of Brennan, how will the new Booth react to his partner?

Boreanaz said this setback might actually help their relationship in the long run.

"It makes me want to reinviest my time and energy into that relationship," he said. "Because I don't remember certain things, now we're back to ground zero."

Bones will return on September 19.

Bones Quotes

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.

Save the girls.
