Brennan to Become Booth's "Rock" on Bones

at .

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."
