Title of the Season 5 Finale Revealed

I feel a little dense. Ok, a lot. A lot dense. I saw this tweet showing the first page of the Bones Season 5 finale and thought "Oh, yeah, he's teasing us because it is blank."

Um, missed something!

If you look a bit closer than I did before (duh) you can see the Season 5 Bones finale is titled "The Beginning in the End."

For the purposes of comments, consider this a spoiler post because we need to discuss what you think that title means! (Hart Hanson isn't talking.)

Ok--so the finale of season 4 was "The End in the Beginning" and from what I understood, the end of their relationship (or the way they're relationship will eventually be) was in the beginning, with them in bed together. So...I'm thinking maybe this episode will be backward because the title is opposite (The Beginning in the End)? Like the end of the episode will be the beginning of their relationship (pre-first episode) and the beginning of the episode will be how their relationship ends (or will eventually be, like the beginning of the season 4 finale). Does that make any sense? Lemme know what ya think :)

It makes sense, Emi! I thought that this season finale's final scene could be the first scene of tEitB. But that's wanting too much! And it would require B&B to take a few (a lot!) steps forward in their relationship in only a few episodes, which is not likely.

So, basicaly, after a lot of speculation, I don't know what to think anymore, BUT this episode is somehow connect with last year's finale. And that is realy exciting!

I agree with you to a point about Booth and Bren needing a lot of steps to go from A to B, but with all the buildup, I think when the relationship fully takes off, (and I'm not convinced they're not already in a relationship,) it will be like dropping a match in a dry forest. Bren seems to go all out and don't forget how many times she's told Booth how passionate of a lover she is.

I agree- and maybe it is wishful thinking, but I am all for a bedroom scene at the end. And I think I also would like to hear the famous "Do you love me?" line. But, I want Booth to say it this time...and a "yes, do you want me to prove it to you" from our dear doctor B:)

Mike said...

I'd be happy with a simple exchange of "I love you's"

phew. i hate, hate, hate spoiler posts but i had to hop on this one early -- and i might not be back :)

since i'm spoiler-free, i might be already wrong, but i've been expecting the season finale to be "pops's" funeral since, oh, the second diner scene in epi 5.8.

what i think this opens up, other than the obvious, is a lot more potential character exploration/backfill with booth.

it's going to be a long month!

I think B&B will either get together or make a huge step towards being together in the finale this year. I'm not expecting sex, since Hart said he didn't think that was likely to happen in season 5, but I'm expecting something good. Last season, Hart said to take the title "The End in the Beginning" very literally, and as Emi said, that first scene was probably the end of their relationship (or at least the part we'll see on TV.) I'm honestly expecting to see that "Do you love me?" scene in the series finale, thus the "end" of their relationship in the "beginning" of that particular episode.

As for this year, I think "The Beginning in the End" should probably also be taken literally as well, thus the "beginning" of B&B's real romantic relationship in the "end" of the episode/season. I'm don't necessarily think that the two finales will be connected through anything other than their titles, but I do think this season's title should be taken just as literally as last year's.

And don't feel bad, Wendy! If the other fans hadn't started going crazy over the title, I totally would've missed it, too!

I am really worried by this if we were to take it literally does it spell the end of bones altogether at the end of season 6

Mary Ellen said...

OMG! you guys all thought the same things I thought! The first thing I thought about when I saw the titles was the connection between the two episodes! It useless to say how much I would love to see some real progress, but I wouldn't like to get my self all fired up for nothing last year. Let's all keep our fingers crossed!!!

Emi said...

Yep, I definitely agree with Stephanie on this one:
"As for this year, I think "The Beginning in the End" should probably also be taken literally as well, thus the "beginning" of B&B's real romantic relationship in the "end" of the episode/season. I'm don't necessarily think that the two finales will be connected through anything other than their titles, but I do think this season's title should be taken just as literally as last year's."

Makes total sense to me--especially the "beginning" of their romantic relationship being at the "end" of the episode.

Anonymous 4:20 brought up a point I had totally forgotten about but as I thought about it I can see where that plot line could lead. I can see Pops dying and Booth suffering a serious emotional breakdown that takes him out of the FBI while he recovers. Bren, wanting to honor Pops's wishes and is there for Booth. Booth, thinking about Pops and what he thought of Bren, and realizing life is short and the life both he and her lead finally tells Bren he loves her. At first Bren is scared off, but relents and admits her feelings for Booth to him. I might be wrong (and I hope I am, I like Pops!) but this seems to be a logical sequence of events.

GAH!!!
I really hope its a link to the Season 4 finale. But... I'm also all for what Olivia said, and hoping they flip it for them... with her saying yes do you want to prove it to me.
I liked pops, really hope he doesn't die.. we could do with him popping back in. It would also be interesting to see Booth's father come into an episode... just sayin is all.
But... all in all, I CAN'T WAIT to see it. I don't know where ya'll are, but i'm Oz, so either have to wait til we catch up here, or.... watch it online... (lets go for thte latter yeah??? lol).
Can't wait til AFD when it starts up again.. yay

well i was anon11:59, mike. not sure if you were replying to me or not.

i'm not sure any kind of break/departure has to occur though it's not inconceivable. hh's hints about consequences have been consistent, though that's not to say that the entire show could take on a different direction down the line depending on what the principals wanted to do...

lots of possibilities. thank goodness i have a vacation and a business trip between now and april 1 to help pass the time.

Hannah said...

I could see the pops' dying scenario, (I sincerely hope it doesn't though) it seems plausible. I do hope Booth and Brennan at least both admit their feelings for each other this season, after years of waiting ;) Although as someone already pointed out, those types of relationships tend to spell the end of shows like this.
