Season 4 Story News: 2 recurring characters

I can't quote much of this story, but you can check it out at Kristen @ E. It's got some story spoilers.

Basically, two teased characters won't be going away in just one episode, and we may not like how they stick around. Read all about it here.

What do you think?

No! I'm not ready for that, AT ALL. I don't mind Roxie being a recurring character, but not Jared! I thought he was going to be a minor obstacle, not another Sully! Grrrr.

Yanin said...

Why would they do that????? UGH! I mean, that would be weird for BB if she gets with Jared wouldn’t it? I do not like where this is going if it is true….I feel like pulling a Lucille Ball and just sitting down and wailing “WAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!” non stop!!!

Shep said...

*whimper*

Noooooooooooooo!! I agree cupcakebean - we can't have another Sully! You could almost see steam coming out of my ears with every episode he was in, I think I'll be breathing fire next!

I hope it doesn't drag out too long. This is going to be painful! :s

CupcakeBean said...

I was in such a good mood until I read this article... Now I'm ticked off. I'm one of the people who don't want them to get together until the end of the show, but I DON'T want her to fall for Booth's brother for God's sake! I liked the idea of her dating other guys to keep her feelings for Booth at bay... and having it blow up in her face (with him there to pick up the pieces, of course). Ugh! Grrrr! I have no more words at this point!

Well, to be fair, sparks are one thing; going all "Sully v2.0" on us is another. I'm intrigued as to what HH means by "very real obstacle", since he apparently used the same words to refer to both A/H and B/B. I think we're gonna get a glimpse of how serious he is about this one by the time the Roxie episodes air.

And now, a word of distrust: Seriously? The brother? Seriously? Isn't that a little soap-operaish? [Or, you know, way more than a little?]. I hope they know for certain where they're taking this one, because between the Zach debacle and the time-slot changes, they really can't afford to keep throwing viewers around.

Shep said...

This isn't faaaaiiirr!! How long will Hart continue to mess with our emotions (ok, i know, as long as physically possible...)

I swear, if Brennan and Jared share even so much as a tiny kiss, I will throw something!

The only thing that will provide comfort is seeing Booth confront his brother and right now I don't even care if it ends in fisticuffs - as long as Booth wins! I know I'm being very one-sided and grouchy here but I need to blow some steam.

CupcakeBean said...

The only thing is, heirofloki, it might not just be "sparks." I've read the sides... I won't go into details, but let's just say they aren't just giving each other puppy dog looks. That said, sides are sides... they are very vague, only tell a tiny snippet of the story, and are subject to change. (All reasons that I swear I'm not reading them anymore.) They don't give an accurate idea of the storyline, as I learned from "The Man in the Outhouse."

I'm worried that all the drama is going to drive away some viewers, especially those in the "I want B&B together RIGHT NOW!" Camp. Booth and Brennan have made such progress and I don't want to see that ruined. I'm all for obstacles, but she can't fall for another man! Don't get me started again...

splendidem said...

well I definitely was not cheering when I read that. I have not read the sides--and though I am usually a self spoiler, I don't know if I want to know now.
Hopefully this will not be a soap-opera-ish roadblock. I'd like to think that they'll use this as a catalyst, i.e. on some level, brennan realizes that she's using Jared as a replacement (i.e. next best thing) for what she really wants but thinks she can't have.
of course, she's not at that point of self awareness yet...a little help from sweets, perhaps?

Reading all your comment rattle me a bit but I still have an open mind because there is no way Bones can go with Jared and then with booth. They are just dragging out the inevitable by creating confusion, they really know how to rattle us fans. I think Mr. Hanson is going with some of the fanfic theme because people write stories about Jared coming in the picture and have the hots for bones which we all know is just so predictable. Booth is not goin gto stand by and let his brother do a number on his girl.

Stephanie said...

I always assumed Roxie would be a more-than-one-episode character, so that's not surprising to me. I'm actually interested in seeing how that plays out.

As for Jared...we'll see how it goes. I like that we're going to meet Booth's brother. Can't wait to see who they cast. I don't think the thing between him and Brennan will be much of anything, though. If she wouldn't sleep with a fellow anthropologist in the season premiere just because it would upset Booth, she better have enough sense not to go and sleep with his brother!

Milk Mama said...

I'm not worried. I think that it'll bring about good things in their relationships. :)

Zoe said...

Me also thinks the Jared "obstacle" would probably (eventually in the bigger context) be more a "catalyst". And... Eric Bana for Jared!

BB Fan said...

I actually don't think Bones will sleep with Jared, but that she will develop a relationship with him that may push our Booth into taking a step forward with Bones.

I don't blame her. Her character takes all of her queues from Booth with regard to their relationship and he told her point blank that their relationship is too important to go that direction with and that because their jobs are so risky they can't date people they work with. So, until Booth OPENLY tells Bones that he's ready to move forward and stake a claim, she will continue to think Booth is her BFF or surrogate relationship, but that it isn't a possibility for it to move on to anything more.

Do we really know forsure that Booth is ready to go down that path with Bones? I think that the Jared situation will be excellent. The triangle has to have some serious weight to it for Booth to move. So, I say bring on Jared Booth because he's going to push BB to move forward. :)

heirofloki said...

bb fan - love your positive outlook. I really cheered me up.

I'm still wary of the drama...but I mostly trust the writers. I'll just keep reminding myself: "This isn't House. This isn't House. This isn't House..."

mo said...

i agree with BB fan... the writers have given us something to love, we need to trust they are doing their best to make us happier! <3

kathrine said...

NOOOOOOO WAAAYY!!!! not another guy to go in between booth and brennan... urgh..

i wanna cry! now! *SIGH*

kathrine said...

oohh.. i forgot.. maybe it's kind of exciting.. on how will booth react on this how he'll handle the situation... :D

HH is ruining this show.Give Brennan a love interest but Booth's brother, that is a bigger mistake than Zack.If Brennan goes with Jared,I will be disgusted with her,it like sticking it to Booth,anything he has said or done for her has meant nothing. She can't be that emotionally dense to Booth personally & professionally that he wouldn't feel betrayed and that is what this betraying Booth.The way Brennan acts,3 love interests already,looking elsewhere but at Booth no wonder he can't tell her how he feels.

About Booth's reaction to Jared and Brennan, let me guess, that is a hard one. Will he be jealously? Gee like he has never been that before. Gawd, Booth being jealous is boring it is like it happens every other epi. And for once can Brennan not be jealous of Booth, can we not see Brennan show her feelings for once? It can't always be Booth The Jared situation has never made me dred the upcoming episodes as much. The Sully ones aren't as bad as this. Her liking Booth's brother is so wrong and unforgivable.

Shep said...

I agree with BB, lets just hope Booth steps in before Brennan ends up sleeping with Jared!!

So Brennan never has to take the responsibility of making bad decisions? It is up to her to come to conclusion herself that sleeping with Jared would be the biggest mistake of her life. This is about her showing some respect and feeling towards Booth and figuring it out herself. If Jared and Brennan have sex, then it is over for Brennan and Booth, Booth will never sleep with her after his brother has done so. That would be so wrong and Booth isn't that type of guy.

Since when has Bones turned into The Jerry Springer Show? The 2 brothers and Brennan is the lamest plot ever, Bones is really hitting new lows. If Brennan choses Jared over Booth then I will lose all respect for her, the first 3 epi she already come across as shallow and sex obsessed egotist as it is.

alison said...

I hate the idea in theory, but.....
I hated the dating 2 guys idea too. and i ended up really liking how it was carried out.
I'm just going to close my eyes, trust the writers, and pray they don't get too Jerry Springer!

splendidem said...

I really agree that this *could* be a good thing...I haven't read the sides, but from earlier comments I gathered that she's got some attraction to the brother--it would be horrible for the plot to have her sleep with Jared, however *if* done properly, this could be a really great plot device.
If Brennan realizes herself what sleeping with Jared would do--and winds up rejecting that idea because of her feelings, albeit repressed, for Booth, then that could be a big step for their relationship.
As I think somebody already pointed out, she rejected sleeping with wexler in the premiere. She flirted, had her fun...but in the end, didn't do it because of what it would have meant for her relationship with her partner. I'm hoping we can expect the same here, only maybe with some realizations about why she was attracted to Jared...perhaps as a replacement for what she really wants?

I must say 'Bones' seems to be going in the soap opera direction with the whole relationships theme. I don't want to hear "well it's always been about the relationships". I don't need to hear it, again. 'Bones' had a good balance of everything. Science, crime, comedy, relationships. Now, it's just about an on and off again relationship and a NON relationship. There's no more good balance, anymore, so basically it's a soap opera, imo.

I'm tired of B/B. I enjoyed the chemistry in the first two seasons, but now the chemistry seems forced. HH and David have constantly said that B/B will be stretched out as long as possible, so I don't see why everyone is getting all bent out of shape about Brennan getting involved with someone. B/B aren't going to happen until the last episode of the last season. HH and DB pretty much say it all the time. And, it's not even a fact that they WILL get together. So, it may or may not happen. HH can't please everyone.

What they need to do is just give Booth a woman he deserves. Keep it at that. I can't believe HH is using his brother Jared to be involved with Brennan. I mean, we are supposed to learn about Booth's family and past. Why does Brennan have to always be wedged in? I want to see more Booth without Brennan around all the time. It's annoying.

Knowing Brennan the way that we do she is going to have sex with Booths brother. Then because she doesnt think anything is wrong with that she will tell Booth that she slept with his brother just the way she told him about Sully. Booth who the writers are making out to be a real dope will swallow his pride and still be her protector. One time lets see an episode without this T---p. Give the fans a show just about Booth and his every day life.
