After months of speculation, rumors, spoilers and foilers, “Bones” fans will finally get some resolution regarding May’s maddening “alternate reality” season finale when new episodes start back up this Thursday.
We’ve watched the season premiere, and it’s good. Trust. Arguably the best premiere the show has ever done, in fact.
Why? Well, first of all, if you’re a Booth/Brennan fan, this is an episode you cannot miss. Yes, there’s a case. And Cyndi Lauper makes her debut as Angela’s psychic. But this hour is really all about B&B. Sure, their “hook up” only took place in the “alternate reality,” but that doesn’t mean it won’t have some real consequences for them and for their relationship in the actual “Bones” world.
If you’ve seen the promos, you know that Sweets and Cam both confront Booth about being in love with Brennan. But what you maybe haven’t yet heard is that one of the two actually goes out of their way to talk Booth out of expressing his feelings… complete with medical records to back their point up. You can imagine how well Booth takes that piece of advice.
But there are definite romantic moments in the episode, as creator Hart Hanson teased when we spoke to him last month. Yep, the words “I love you” are uttered more than once in the episode… though that actually falls more under the “awkward moments” category. But it’s still really sweet and, coupled with a few other swoon-worthy scenes, pretty sure you’ll be satisfied.
One of those scenes just might involve kissing. We can’t forget the kissing, because yes, there is some in the premiere. The who, why, where, we can’t spill. But we will say that one of the smooches will make you sigh… in a good way.
But yeah, enough of our talking. Listen to Ms. Emily Deschanel’s take on the whole deal…
When Bones returns with new episodes next month, the action will pick up a few weeks after the events in May’s season finale.
Series creator Hart Hanson is on record as saying that Brennan will have just returned from a trip to Guatemala, which begs the question:
Did she really leave Booth at such a critical time, following his brain surgery? No, Hanson emphasizes.
“We’ve set up a few times that when she’s really miserable she goes down there [Guatemala] and identifies victims of the genocide down there and there are so many still remaining unidentified,” he said. “So when she’s really miserable she just throws herself into that. I promise you, Brennan did not abandon Booth. Watch the season opener; you’ll see.”
We will. It airs on September 17.
Bones – Season 4 on DVD. This DVD listing is prior to Fox Home Entertainments’s official announcement for the title, so instead of a street date it only says “This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.” Pricing is available, however, at $59.98 SRP (and you can lock in your copy at a nice discount if you place your order now). There are no other details available so far, however, nor cover art (only some temp promo artwork). Stay tuned, though, and we’ll update you further on this title, just as soon as we find out more!
