Who Will Die on Bones This Week?

at . Comments

Someone will die this week when sniper Jacob Broadsky returns. We don't yet know who, but we do know this week and next are full of big moments on Bones.

Luckily, creator Hart Hanson, executive producer Stephen Nathan and stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, T.J. Thyne and Michaela Conlin dished on them.

All of them gathered at L.A.'s Paley Center for Media Monday to preview "The Hole in the Heart" and more. Here are some excerpts of their Q&A, via TV Line:

On Broadsky's victim: Sounds like it's gonna hurt. “You don’t want to kill someone on the show and have the audience say, ‘Oh, thank God!’” said Nathan.

Added Deschanel: “It’s sad to see both the actor and the character go.”

Booth Interrogates

On the big question: Castle creator Andrew Marlowe recently said it's time Booth and Brennan got together. “I do give [his comments] credence,” said Hanson.

“He runs a really good show. He knows what he’s doing, so I’d be crazy not to go, ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ … He’s one of those voices you would listen to.”

But, Hanson added, that “doesn’t mean I act upon it.” No, but the Bones season finale spoilers we've read certainly imply something is in the works ...

On the birth of Hodgins and Angela's baby: “I watched some clips on YouTube,” Michaela Conlin said of preparing for the scene. “I was very nervous.”

Probably not as nervous as Hodgins, “the perfect harried father,” according to Nathan.

On the future of The Finder: On reports that The Finder may fill holes in Bones' schedule next season while Deschanel takes maternity leave, Hanson deferred.

“If The Finder doesn’t get picked up to its own series, then it will go into the bin of ideas for what to do with Bones,” he said. “I’d do just about anything to get The Finder picked up. It’d be fun. But they’re separate.”

On exploring Booth's past: A storyline exploring Booth’s childhood became a causality of the writers strike, but the producers hope to revisit it next season.

“We have to decide what [piece] of Booth’s past to bring out,” explained Hanson. “We have a couple choices – [his] mom or dad? Probably not both, but you never know.… I’d be really surprised if we didn’t do that next year.”

On the show's expiration date: There is none! “As long as people keep murdering people,” replied Hanson when asked how long the show can go on.

“As long as these actors are producing what they produce.”

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.
