My worst fear has been confirmed. As if we didn't see that one from a mile away. :'(

I think B/B may have "missed their moment" (at least with a whole lot of shippers) and by the time Brennan/the writers figure out that all the things she/they are scared about aren't true ...
it will be too late.

Maybe her conversation with Rebecca was the true foreshadowing.

Oh well.

Seriously folks, What did expect? THIS IS HART HANSON you are dealing with.

I think the begining of season 5 would have been perfect for them to start a relationship and then move on with the show with them as a couple. After S04 finale, it would have been a good moment (I loved S04 finale). The only way I'd feel compensated for this year's finale would be for the first episode of S06 to begin with the first moments of tEitB...which is not likely. But to have them together, anyhow! I realy don't want another love interest in Booth's life...

I'll keep being faithful to the show because I love it, can't help it, and I trust HH and still believe B&B will be together but this is just geting me tired.

Vorpaks said...

Arg!

"she'll be nothing but supportive of the born-under-fire union."

Completely supportive? Arg!

Ah well, still looking forward to it. :)

Mindy said...

My one consolation is that spoilers are often oddly misleading, so their reference to Brennan's reaction may only be partially true. For instance, maybe she's outwardly supportive, but there's an internal struggle Booth doesn't see yet? I'm trying to stay optimistic. I really can't stand watching him with other women in the show. It's just weird.

Anyway, that's one of the possibilities that could stem from the careful wording.

Urgh, why :o( ? This is really the one thing that nearly everybody didn't want!! I'm getting fed up with this, Bones used to be amazing it used to be funny, sad and very moving and now all it seems to be is lets drag the b&b thing out as long as possible with run of the mill storylines where you don't care about the victim or the suspect!! And what happened to Catherine? It' sooo inconsistant and I'm just sooo saddened and fed up with Bones right now, I could have predicted this but was hoping I was wrong and they would do the right thing for once, can't they see how many fans they are going to eventually loose, more probably than if they were brave and got them together!! :o( Kaz x

I really thought that I would be upset after reading this, but actually and rather surprisingly no. Sadly I feel nothing, the BB relationship has gotten so drawn out its verging on the ridiculous.
I just hope episode cases are good otherwise its becoming a little predictable and boring..
I am still a loyal fan and will obviously keep watching but it will be for the cases and other character interaction not the BB relationship, it has gone on for too long.

Well that just put a serious cloud over my happy summer. I promised myself after the season finale that if the writers did take that route this season, I'd have to quit watching weekly and catch up when it's all said and done and they've finally found their happily ever after (with EACH OTHER!) I just can't take the drawn-out angst any more. It's heart crushing. I'll still be obsessed with the show, but I just can't wait week after week to be disappointed time and time again. Thank goodness for fanfiction and DVDs of the good old Bones days.

Anonymous said...

TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE LAST THREE COMMENTS. UNLESS THE CASES ARE INTERESTING I WILL PROBABLY WATCH OTHER SHOWS.

Stephanie said...

Ugh, really?! They can't think of something else to do? As I said right after the finale, I think Bones is just past the point in the show where they can give one of them someone else and get away with it. It worked in Season 2 with Cam & Sully, but shouldn't we be past that by now?

I guess I'm just afraid nothing's going to change. If B&B just come back, resume their partnership, and act supportive of one another while continuing to hide their real feelings, that's not different. If that's what they're going to do, what exactly was the point of separating them for a year?

pfenix-goddess said...

HH needs to wake up. Seriously. It's time to listen to the internet; ever since this news broke NO ONE has been happy about it. Why? Because we've ALREADY seen it. I was one of the few who really enjoyed the season five finale; I felt it was a good way to shake up the show and had a strong sense of hope about where the show would go in season six. That hope is now gone.

This ridiculous plotline (if Bones is really the one that Booth saw and knew from day one that she was his "forever", how's he going to move back to *their* town with some new woman to rub in Bones' face? That's *not* Boothlike) is exactly what we all feared they would do. In fact, it's so freaking predictable I'm already yawning. I'm so mad right now, I can't even word it correctly other than to say: I don't WANT to re-watch season two; if I wanted that, I'd go watch the DVD's! GIVE US A NEW PLOTLINE, for Pete's sake! Separate them for a YEAR and use that as an excuse to revisit the "new love interest" gag?! Come ON.

I'm truly sorry to say that this was the second-to-final nail in the coffin for me for "Bones." I watch it not only for the procedural but for the B/B interactions. The procedural part of the show has really fallen spectacularly by the wayside these last two seasons, and season five was heart-stomping. But, honestly, as brilliant as the 100th episode was, it was an episode that should have happened in season four. Five years is too ridiculously long to drag on the will they/won't they. There's no tension anymore because it's just not realistic; no one would go for six years like this! I've come to accept that thanks to the writers' cowardly quivering at the thought of the dreaded "Moonlighting" effect, they'll never give us what we want, which goes to show that they are ultimately weak writers because they *won't* take the challenge that viewers want them to take.

I've already scheduled my classes for fall semester and I have a class on Thursday nights till 9:00; I scheduled it without a qualm. I'm so unenthusiastic about the new season of "Bones" I'll literally catch up with it on Hulu some time over the following weekend; I just can't be bothered anymore. Sorry, "Bones", but this weak and pathetic revisiting of a weak and pathetic plotline just to drag on the "tension" has officially sucked all of my interest out of what really could/should have been a promising new season.

peacenik said...

This is an old tactic that has been used in TV many, many times.I had a very strong feeling that something like this would happen when the show came back for season 6. HH and the other writers are afraid that the show will loose its spark and its viewers if B&B get together. I mean we all know that they will get together eventually, but the in the story is getting there. Of course, there comes a point when fans get sick of waiting. At that point you need to make sure your writing is on point to keep the fans interested. Also, I agree with what Mindy said about spoilers being misleading. I'm taking it with a grain of salt. Also, I just remember many years ago when I felt that Mulder and Scully would never get together, and it was completely agonizing. But, they did eventually. So have some faith :-)

andrea diaz said...

Maybe, just maybe, if this spoiler is correct-Booth getting together with another love interest will cause both partners to focus more on their cases and less on each other romantically. I would like to see them together, but it's not the most important aspect of the show to me. When Bones first aired, Booth and Brennan had a love/hate relationship which really worked, was funny and had them focusing more on the cases. I think that in season 6, it's time to get back to more of the story/characters/plot and less on the will they or won't they formula which has been fueling the show for the past three years. Don't get me wrong, I love Bones, it's my favorite show, but I'd rather see more focus on the storylines and let the "relationship" of Booth and Bones take a back seat for the time being. The characters can still have an attraction for each other, but they won't be so conflicted over their feelings and let these emotions distract them from their cases as they have done especially toward the end of season 5. Well, this being said, I look forward to season 6 with bated breath!

BonesFreak said...

The first thing that comes to my mind is deja vu.....I mean come on HH....I have this really terrible, strong gut feeling that if HH doesn't wake up and face the fans then there won't be a season 7 of Bones....I really fear for the show.....I really can't believe i'm saying this, Bones being my FAVOURITE show of all time and the only one I ALWAYS check for spoilers and updates for... I can easily picture HH doing something REALLY stupid like getting Booth to marry this woman....I'm reallyy scared.....I will of course still be completely faithful to the show but I really think its time for a change, and not the same pointless relationships that Booth (and Bones) have been having. Otherwise soo many fans are going to give up and there won't be more seasons of Bones, which will be disastrous, it being such an AMAZING show.......Fingers crossed that HH and Stephen Nathan will come to their senses!

Pwee said...

Hum ... why am I not surprised ? Because I already knew this was going to happen (Korbi TV in her post-mortem chat following the season finale announced it). I was supposed to stay away from spoilers, I FAILED miserably, argh, Frieda ! After reading that article, I don't even feel anything ! How sad is that?

We'll see how it goes. Marisa Roffman told us in one of her columns to have a little faith. So I'll keep hoping that season 6 will bring us great episodes and that it will not be the end of it all due to a lack of interest from viewers. If we have great episodes but B&B are not together, I'll be fine. If they keep on focusing on the non-existant B&B relationship, the show will just go DOWNhill !

Anonymous said...

@Andrea Diaz, ARE YOU SERIOUS? How many of the 8 million or so fans that watch this show do it for the storylines and plots? Some but very few. For the last 1 and a half seasons, excluding the 100th, every story line or plot has been a joke. People watch this show because of Booth and Brennan. The writing on this show is unbelievably bad. If it wasn't for these two absolutely gorgeous leads,and their natural chemistry that brings their characters to life, this show would have been canceled after the first year. @ Pwee, Marissa Roffman!!! She doesn't know ANYTHING. Her,Korbi and Ausiello are all paid stooges of Hart Hanson. Remember she is the one who said that we would all be dancing in our underwear after last seasons finale.

Anonymous said...

I don't think that HH cares one whit about what fans think-he has an "artistic vision" in mind which may not ultimately involve getting B/B together. As long as the viewers are there, Fox will let him do what he wants, which is fine except for the fact that many of last season's stories were uninteresting or easily thrown away (Catfish and Hacker, anyone?)

Sure, he knows most people at this point watch because of the B/B chemistry, so he's uped the ante on that, but after that horrible finale (the only episode of Bones I've ever truly hated and won't rewatch) I've seriously lost faith that B/B will ever get together. I'll stick it out, but I no longer count the minutes til the next episode. If it wasn't for the great DB/ED dynamic, I'm not sure I'd watch at all. Yes, Mulder and Scully got together eventually, but I (a former loyal fan) didn't see it, because I had stopped caring long before. Artistes can do what they want (I can't really complain, there were at least four great years of Bones), but the public ultimately decides for how long that vision stays on the air. If and when HH takes into account viewer expectations, it may be too little too late.

Kate said...

Heavens to Betsy, here we go again. NO ONE is a paid stooge of HH and you're all getting bent out of shape over nothing. Remember Catherine? 1 epi. Even Sully only lasted, what, 4 epis.

Mindy is absolutely right, spoilers are almost always misleading. Remain calm. Let's at least let the sixth season start before we declare "Bones" to be over.

Pwee said...

One anonym person said that very few fans watch this show because of the storylines and plots. I'm not so sure about that. When I started watching, there was no B&B idea in my mind. I just found that the show was different from anything we had on TV, so I watched. Of course, as I kept watching, seeing B&B together seemed like a good idea. But, they shouldn't make it the focus of the show.

I think that's where the show started having problems, when they began to focus more on the will they/won't they rather than on their storylines. Since we didn't have anything to focus on other than their relationship, we focused on that. But if the writers find a way to shift our focus back on the plots and storylines rather than on the B&B relationship, they won't lost viewers, they may even gain some.

As for Marisa Roffman or Korbi TV etc ... I didn't agree with them at all on most of what they said (this season finale better than last year's; the finale being a payoff for the 100th episode). But I do agree that we need to wait and see.

Vorpaks said...

I agree with Pwee and Andrea -- I actually DO watch for the cases. :) If they get back to friendship, but have really interesting cases, I am fine with that.

I AM disappointed by the relationship thing -- but not because of the relationship itself (Booth did say he had to move on) but because I was hoping if it happened it would be a plot device to move the romance angle forward/get through that thick skull of Brennan's.

If she is nothing but supportive of it... Arg! *grin*

Even if the romance disappers completely, never to return (yeah right) I will still watch for the clever writing. Seriously, this show has some of the best dialogue I've ever watched. Especially Hodgins's lines.

andrea diaz said...

I'm sorry anonymous, but I beg to differ. I do think that MANY fans watch Bones because of the storylines and plots. This is a major reason , along with the chemistry of David Boreanantz and Emily Deschanel, for the success of the show. I think that if a show ONLY relies on the beauty of its leads and not the storylines/plots-yes that show would be cancelled!
I feel that some of the episodes of this past season weren't as strong as previous eps because of the focus being so much on whether the relationship of Booth and Brennan will become a romantic one. (Of course there were standouts: "The Proof in the Pudding", "The Boy with the Answer", the season finale). Yes, many fans like the possibility of a romance between Booth and Bones-but I for one rather it come naturally if it does, and not be forced just because that's what the fans want.

To say the show would have been cancelled after the first season if it wasn't for DB and EM, well since it's an ensemble show, I think it initially was the combination of ALL the characters that created audience interest. Yes, there was chemistry between DB and Em but the storylines/plots were what caused Bones to be picked up for season 2. However, I do agree that the continued focus on "will they or won't they " affected many of this season's storylines, and I for one want to see stronger episodes for season 6 . Not so many "silly" plots. (Of course there were standout eps ie: "The Proof in the Pudding", "The Boy with the Answer", the season finale, etc.)

To say that viewers ONLY watch because of the gorgeousness of the leads, seems to be saying that the audience is pretty shallow and I don't think that's the case. I think it's the combination of well written episodes, character development, dark humor, etc. that keeps us coming back for more! And don't forgot Tamara Taylor, Michaela Conlin, TJ Thyne and John Francis Daley-all of the cast together is what makes the show work.

Mindy said...

Since this is a spoiler post, I'm going to mix a couple spoilers. If you don't read all of them that are out, be forewarned this gets into another spoilery plotline.

Does anyone remember when we posted this: http://www.obsessedwithbones.com/2010/06/end-in-beginning-vs-beginning-in-end.html

Near the end of the article was another spoiler about possibly picking up the Brennan-wants-a-baby storyline. Keeping in mind that we have to be cautious of all spoilers/wording/trickery/etc., I can think of several interesting ways that these two potential spoilers could coincide.

What do you guys think? Too far-fetched on my part? Too obvious of a storyline? A good direction?

Anonymous said...

If this happens I will NOT continue to watch - this is too ridiculous. I won't even make it to the first show. So sad.

Meg said...

This news has made me exceptionally angry. This is not the direction HH needs to be heading, and I cannot imagine this is going to work out for him ratings-wise. Sorry HH, you can't start over. You have taken these characters this far, don't bail on them now. The only way this will work for me is if Bones comes back ready to proceed with a relationship, and we get to see some hard core jealousy on her part. If she truly is "supportive" of Booth and some chick (who, we will all hate by the way, so you might as well cast some demon) then I will be really upset. Grrr!

Meg said...

@Mindy- give me some hopeful ideas, about ways we could make this happy news and mix with the other spoiler...I need it this evening after reading this. Perhaps, Booth leaves new girl to father child?

pepi said...

I am so tired !!!!!!!
As per episode 100th we know that B&B had met a year before the pilot began. So if we sum up that year plus 5 seasons plus one year one in the war and the other in Indonisia....it means that during
7(seven!!!!!) years they have been playing the same stupid game.
What an idiot way of keeping them apart.

andrea diaz said...

Pwee,

I'm so with you on your comments. I wholeheartedly agree that when I first starting watching Bones, there was no B&B, but the chemistry between all of the actors, the storylines and of course the dark humor was what hooked me. . I was re-watching some favorite eps of the first two seasons and when compared to the current seasons, there's such a difference. I still love the show, but I agree that when the focus shifted to so much of the will they/won't they aspect, some of the storylines suffered. There were stand-out eps this season, but I think too many of the eps were too silly. I hope season 6 will return to stronger writing and let the relationship between Booth and Bones be one of flirtation and banter and not necessarily put them together as a couple.

Pwee said...

Hey Anon 10:37, I totally agree, we are all entitled to our opinions. No worries !

And Andrea diaz, let's hope that the whole team sees what we're saying.

Concerning the baby ... it would have been fun to see Brennan bring back a kid from her little experiment overseas, but I don't think that will happen !

Mindy said...

Hmmm, let's see, Meg. I'm just pulling stuff out of the air here.

I'm not sure that Brennan will come back and already have decided a relationship with Booth was worth a shot (just too Ross and Rachel, right?).

But, what if:

Booth comes back with a lovely lady. Brennan thinks it's great that he's moved on. After a while of watching them together, she feels some jealousy (however irrational that may be) or doesn't even acknowledge her feelings of jealousy. She decides to move on with her life by having a baby (perhaps a "settle for second best" thing by using "his stuff"). It all makes logical sense to her. At some point, she mentions it to Booth who then becomes conflicted about being with someone else while Brennan has his baby.

Lots of fill-in-the-blank details with any of that, but it makes me wonder. I can see some potential in the separate storylines bringing them together. (I'm definitely not a writer here!)

The one thing that I'm very interested in is whether or not Brennan knows he'll come back with someone before they all come back. Mostly because I think it would be very unrealistic for them to go a whole year without any sort of communication. They've been partners for a long time--so long that she didn't agree to go to Indonesia until she talked with him about it. Remember those scenes? So I think even if it was minimal, they would have some email or phone calls occasionally.

If you read Hart Hanson Twitter, this "spoiler" doesn't appear to be true...

Pwee,

Brennan bringing back a child from Indonesia,, maybe to adopt. There's a thought..

Anonymous said...

Mindy,
It's a creative story line and may even prove to be true, but I for one won't be thrilled if it takes a baby to bring Booth back to Bones. After all, he's "that guy." He knows. They should come together because they're meant to be together, not because he feels some sort of obligation.
Anonymous@2:56, care to share HH's twitter? I for one could use some reason to doubt what otherwise seems to be VERY discouraging news. After reading this spoiler, last night was the first time in months that I've gone to bed without watching some kind of Bones episode or scene at the very least. I just couldn't find it enjoyable.

Anonymous said...

The producers of Bones are concerned that if Booth and Brennan become romantically involved the show will be irrevocably ruined. Yet the show's plot calls for them to get together; there's been too much anticipation. So they've decide to do the wimpy thing: include some nominal romantic behavior yet keep them out of a relationship.

Think of how that type of decision-making ruined Frasier. After seven seasons Niles and Daphne got together, and the writers created contrived situations to keep things from being too risky. Niles went through a lengthy divorce, got remarried and then went through another divorce. Daphne almost got married, then left for part of a season. It was so artificial that by the time they were simply a couple people had stopped watching.

The writers had Brennan recognize her social problems as the reason she couldn't be with Booth. But if they don't find new contexts in which she can exhibit those traits, the show is going to get boring fast.

Oh dear God. That's the worst spoiler I've ever heard.

I could not be more disappointed/saddened/angry/depressed.

I have very little respect left for Mr. Hart Hanson. He has come so close to destroying such a wonderful show... but I remain hopeful that he'll turn it around again. (Fingers crossed.)

Anonymous said...

I definitely did see that coming. :-)

Let's face it, B&B have missed their moment. This is truly the beginning of the end.

Anonymous said...

Hart Hanson seems to be hearing (as opposed to listening to) his vocal critics, because a recent Tweet cautioned "you don't know what's going to happen." Would that I could believe him, but he has proved time and time again that he enjoys nothing more than disappointing the shippers. Does he seriously expect us to believe that he has changed his tune in Season 6?
It is certainly Mr. Hanson's prerogative to "hit the reset button" but to me, I think it is an insult to viewers (shippers as well as non-shippers), What was the point of the numerous episodes last season which touched upon the B & B relationship? Why the anguished scene at the airport and the weepy promise to meet in a year at the coffee cart? Is it just me or does it seem cruel (and completely out of character) for Booth to show up for their meeting with his lover in tow? This smacks of that infamous episode of Dallas where Bobby Ewing was miraculously resurrected a season after he was killed off with the ridiculous explanation that the entire season was just his wife's nightmare.
If they wanted Booth to move on and have a girlfriend, why did they drop the existing storyline involving Catherine? For that matter, why spend five years establishing that Booth feels tremendous guilt for his former role as a sniper then turn around and have him re-up to do the same thing? It seems inconceivable that he would give up a year of visits with a child be rarely gets to spend time with?
When I saw the season finale, I immediately thought of An Affair to Remember, where the lead characters part for a year with the promise to meet again at the top of the Empire State Building. After a year, one of the characters decides not to go to the promised meeting because she is now confined to a wheelchair. With Booth heading into a war zone, I speculated that perhaps he would be returning in a wheelchair as well. Having him carry on an affair with a journalist while he is supposed to be training snipers is both out of character and unbelievable.
If this new love interest is to become a recurring character, I certainly have no intention of watching it play out. I used to enjoy the show so much that I would watch it twice on Thursday's: once online from a web site with the Wednesday night Canadian feed and again when it aired here in the US. Now it's such a disappointment that I can actually anticipate waiting for the DVDs on Netflix. At this point I wouldn't care if they canceled it.

I agree with Andrea diaz and pwee more focus on cases and "the continued focus on "will they or won't they affected many of this season's storylines, and I for one want to see stronger episodes for season 6 . Not so many "silly" plots." Anonymous-"@Andrea Diaz, ARE YOU SERIOUS? How many of the 8 million or so fans that watch this show do it for the storylines and plots?"your right anonymous there is on story line or plots no interesting case no serial killers anymore and the humor has been very lacking remember all the funny quotes that keeped you laughing all week and no Booth Action badge and gun i say a BIG YES :) to Booth getting a Girlfriend, Say 70 year old Booth why did you never get married or have a girlfriend or have had sex for 33 years. Booth-I was waiting for Bones and my life passed me by.

Stephanie said...

I think the point of the Catherine episode was just to establish that Booth really would be following through on his intentions to move on from Brennan, like he told her he was going to in the 100th episode. I think if they had done the final 6 episodes of season 5 without any mention of Booth attempted to date someone else, the fans would've complained about that, saying that the writers just ignored everything that happened in the final scene of the 100th.

The writers never intended for the Catherine relationship to go anywhere because a.) they hired an actress who they knew couldn't become a regular on their show and b.) they probably already knew at that point that Booth would be leaving. I agree that it essentially amounted to nothing, but now that Booth's coming back with a girlfriend, I'm glad they had that little set-up storyline. Otherwise, I think this spoiler would seem even more ridiculous.

We really don't know what's going to happen, so Hart's right about that. Upon rereading the spoiler, everyone's focusing on the girlfriend part, but it also says "they'll attempt to be together in the real world, and we all know how that goes" which implies that Booth's relationship isn't going to last very long. So for all we know, this could be another Catherine. Sure, they've had a relationship off-screen, but it could be only one or two episodes before we're done with her.

To those of you who are whining and complaining that you don't like what's happening & that you're not going to watch anymore: Buh bye! Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Those of us who realize we are not entitled to anything ('cuz, y'know, we're not the writers) and are just enjoying the journey (because we all KNOW B&B will end up together) will sit back & enjoy S6 without your temper tantrums.

Anonymous said...

@Stephanie, You are so right. None of us know what's going to happen. I do hope however that you are wrong about the length of Booth's romance with another woman. I would love to see a 4 episode arc that is similar to the one Brennan had with Sully. JMO, but I think that is the only way that Brennan is going to know what she lost when she turned down Booth. That just might be the catalyst to get these two together. Her thinking that Booth is not going to be there for her forever just might do it. I Don't Know! I'm just Babbling.

To those of you who defend Hart and the show to the death, that's certainly your right, but you should also understand why so many of us feel sad and angry.
I know that Rena Sofer has stated in the press that the only show she was interested in recurring on was NCIS. I mean, if they wanted Booth to move on, couldn't they have just hired an actress who was available and continued from there? Surely there was one actress in Hollywood who who could have fit the bill. It just seems weird to me to pick this plot line up again.
I think this has been mentioned before, but it always seemed to me that the 100th episode should have been the finale. Perhaps then we would not all be bitching about this storyline already being done and dropped.
As for Brennan being jealous of Booth's new love interest, that would be wonderful if there was actually a positive payoff that would restore the faith of shippers who have been betrayed time and time again. Hart is kind of like The Boy Who Cried Wolf, so he should not be surprised that no one believes him.
To be fair, I appreciate that he can't please both shippers and non-shippers at the same time. I just wish that he would choose a path and stick to it. Because if this keeps up he is going to find that viewers will not only lose faith, they will lose interest. Peace.

Anonymous 12:34 AM, before saying anything in response to that comment gives a peek at a news DB on Late Night with Jimny Fallon and see what he (DB) says at the very end: they are coming closer and some thing with reference to perhaps a kiss (?) confirms to me. If necessary, please copy and paste the following address and out it in a photo related to meeting the directors see what is there and will ask why, and who was last season, in which episode and why? the following address: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/blogs/2010/05/randy-jackson-david-boreanaz/ # more. I do not know what they're up to, but I think going to be better, but downhill. And before you decide to leave the fans of Bones, wait at least until after Comic Con and see what we are waiting for next season.

I agree with the comments argue that there h and to go into great panic, but part of me can not help but be disappointed that persons over the years we have seen small signs now seem to go away. I think some of what we know is true ... always told that one of the two hid their feelings, and struggling every day (remember the dear gordon gordon). After 100 we saw that Brennan wanted something with Booth, but could not. I think what we did over the Brennan that if he was struggling, but did not know how to be the perfect woman for Booth. Then in May 1921 Booth felt that he did not care just take it as a companion, and I think Brennan was frustrated at not being able to be all love Booth. And in the end, when he learned that Booth had the offer to return to the army, she decided to just push it.
I do not think episode 1 will be a year later, perhaps less, Brennan will continue to fight, you know that you have not forgotten and when he wants to tell him so here it is late.


while we wait, someone else read the graphic novel THE BONES IN THE BOOTH?, for some reason I find some comfort, especially in some deliveries.

I always watched this show for the cases and the terrific, smart witty dialogue the show used to have - for all the characters.

I no longer care much about any of the characters as the writing has gotten dull and the cases became boring - the B&B nonsense has just gotten so absurd, I don't care because I just now find it all pretty silly and pathetic and they keep thinking they are being clever by the way they are keeping them apart.

I'm going to watch when it comes back on to see if they have a revived interest in telling good stories again, if not - well, there is always Fringe....

Anonymous said...

@Courtney - I don't mean to be a hater, but Fringe is an absolutely terrible show. I feel like Bones has always been about the characters and not the cases. If you like good cases, watch Law and Order.

Courtney said...

With all due respect, I will watch whatever show I fine interesting - including Fringe. I happen to like the characters and the storyline of Fringe - if you don't, fine.

I watched Bones for the cases because they used to be really compelling with interesting characters and victims and I really cared about the victim and they were the catalyst for some great debates between Bones and Booth - about religion, love, science vs heart, etc. - that great, smart writing is ta thing of the past for this show and that is what I miss.

If I wanted to watch Law and Order, I would watch it.

I am not someone who is into all this "hater" stuff - I think it is pretty silly. If you want to "hate" Fringe, then hate it - whatever. Hate seems an awfully strong word to apply to a television show.

@Katia: I watched the interview and found David to be coy ("there may be kissing") about the finale but really vague about where he thought things were heading. Something about separating but not really and then coming back and getting closer, but not really. I didn't see anything to change my opinion that this spoiler is bad news. And remember, David has publicly stated something along the lines of "would it be so bad if they never got together."
@Courtney: I agree with you 100%. I have watched the show since day one, and the first thing that attracted me to the show was the taut writing, the witty dialogue, and the terrific ensemble cast. The cast is still there (although the latest report is someone is leaving for good and someone is rejoining the cast), but the writing is no longer as compelling. BTW, Fringe rocks! Now there was an example of a great season finale. I can't wait to see how it resolves when we have the season premiere. Peace.

Anonymous, Ok, I understand, now resembles the end of the fourth season when she asked Booth to donate sperm, after which he told her? When she said to forget the baby, after he said as if it was to have a child who had the traditional way (can not remember the words exactly, but it was in this sense) and found the tumor? She almost cried when he was talking to pessal. Now go back to talking on the baby, now I wonder: how two people like each other much as we demonstrate from the start and we finally found the 100 not be together in no time? Remember what the Brennan Angel said: she does not want to split (in terms of partnership) of Booth and want to discover what she truly feels for him - not in those words exactly, but that's what I understood (as he told her everything). Just waiting for the Comic Con to see what they say. If they push the other way, perhaps the show lost much audience and risk the break halfway, because maybe that's the last season. The ED will be part of the way, if you do not know in what situation (episode) as the DB has already done the first step for advancement, as reported there. Not posivel they say something in front of the world behind and take the program in another direction. I am one who believes that at some point the two would surrender at once. As stated in a report it is in the episode. Consider what happens in the final episode, Pilot and the beginning of another (airport, coffee cart, in both he has a girlfriend that did not last long.

Anonymous, After what you told me about "would it be so bad If They never got together." In another interview he says he is not against them being together, but that was not the right time, and at some point they would be together. The Bones will come back changed everything and you will reach a point where they will eventually understand it. I think this season will be the full complement for the Advancement complete, since so much and spoke in an interview that Emily gave http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/watch_with_kristin/b184039_emily_deschanel_answers_what_fans.html Watching with Kristin (copy and paste), she says, "[In] the 100th episode we cam very close," Emily Answered carefully. "And I think we keep moving forward." Kindly confirmed for me the rest only at Comic Con. I do not know and she'll be there.

Why are we all getting so upset about this particular post? It's because we have such a stock in this show. Whether we "hate" what may happen, whether we agree or disagree that Booth and Bones should (or shouldn't) get together. Whether we think the writing is brilliant or has fallen short-what other show has caused such discussion from audiences around the world? I think that's a pretty awesome achievement. Bones will go down in the hallowed halls of classic television shows such as X-Files, Law & Order, NYPD Blue, etc. ( Insert your favorite classic show here). People will be discussing the show and the characters long after it is off the air (sob).

I'm trying no to get too bent out of shape about the several spoilers that are floating around. Namely Booth not coming back alone from Afghanistan. I'm taking a wait and see approach. But if for some reason, Booth does get involved with the journalist, I think it's because he's on the "rebound" with Bones-trying to get her out of his mind. (Not a very good excuse, I know.) Anyway, I don't think Booth would intentionally bring the journalist to his and Brennan's meeting at the coffee cart. I think instead, the journalist may have stronger feelings for Booth, than he has for her and has herself reassigned to Washington DC. I really don't believe that after six years of getting Bones to trust him (and love him) Booth would betray Bones in this way! But we'll see what happens come Sept.

Looking forward to a strong, controversial season 6 of Bones.

Everyone, remember The End In The Beginning In The Beginning and The End - is coincidence or not? in an interview with KR she says: "I think what readers look for investigative stories are interesting characters, a good background story and a plot function that enables them to follow each case and examine all the clues. Moreover, what needs be done is to complete the story without relying on random coincidences, BUT FOR EACH TRACK CONVERGIR DISSIMINADA DURING THE STORY. In other words, an outcome to be satisfying for the reader and most importantly, make sense. " at The End in the Beginning, the Bones counts as would be the end of them while he in a coma not knowing that he would return. In The Beginning and the End would be the beginning of their history in order to close the show. So his return with his girlfriend since he was a pilot on. And the pregnancy that the story started in the previous episode The End In The Beginning will return, and I think I and many others are finding it to go direct, because coincidentally or not the DB directed the first part of the advancement of the relationship, as said several times there. Is it coincidence or not, or will my thoughts are going too far. A girlfriend came to power just complete coincidence, since in the Booth was a pilot for a small period. Just to reaffirm and build upon this thought very strange.

I'm not sure if I'm going to believe this spoiler. Maybe I just got tired of this charade (third party BB arc). I mean, there's Sully, Cam, Tessa, Rebecca, Michael Stires, Hacker, Catherine, etc. Maybe I'm getting tired of being heartbroken of seeing them apart. Is this spoiler valid considering that it's only July? Just asking you know.

Akasha said...

After this spoiler, I think I won't even watch Season 6 for the cases. Nope, I won't. Season 5 is the last one for me.

Thank you Hart, you screwed totally up this great show.

katiabreu said...

Anonymous, Just want to see when the three meet (if at Booth goes with which the said) and as the Pilot, when they met again and that lasted 03 episodes, this will not last long for what I'm thinking they are planning to take place, it will change both visual and will come back open after five years of thinking in a year.

I am 100% sure what's going to happen in the premiere of S6. The SO,if there is one for either one of them, will not be an issue for almost all of this episode until the very end. That is when the one with the SO will tell the other one about it. Then with longing looks toward each other, the episode will end. That is an Hanson ploy to continue to get us to watch the next episode. Remember, you heard it here first.

Anonymous said...

As HH always commented, the story of B&B is one chasing another one. In s5, Booth discovered his love and chased Brennan. Now in S6, it's Brennan's time to discover her love and chase Booth. If Booth is intact and free, the chase would be meaningless. So they decided to bring a girlfriend to stop Booth from running toward Brennan with open heart. Being his new love a journalist is also good for easy wiping out. She can go for a war report and never come back. Booth will mourn her death for a few episodes, then finds comfort in old love's open heart.

It is so predictable and boring.

We have another plot to worry about. This one is more serious than B&B relationship:

Thanks for the tip!

catherine said...

seriously, calm down people! of course there's gonna be some drama with B&B- it's the season premiere, they aren't dating, and they haven't seen each other for a year! you can read into that spoiler a million different ways but you can't take it word for word literally and think it's set in stone that way. they haven't even started filming yet! i am OBSESSED with this show, but i won't lose any sleep over this potential storyline, though i am VERY curious as to what's going to happen.
remember hacker and catherine and sully? yeah me neither.

katiabreu said...

Question math - if Booth comes with one person and two people enter, one evil and another to replace one of the staff of Booth, then it would be three persons and Stephen Nathan said that Bones would have one or two new characters, how can it be?
