Bones boss – “Big” finale on the way

It appears real, non-imaginary sex might be staging a comeback this season.

Less than a week after House boss David Shore all but confirmed that House and Cuddy would soon engage in honest-to-goodness intercourse, Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan is hinting that Booth and Brennan — who, like House and Cuddy, did the faux deed last spring — might be headed for a legit roll in the hay as well.

It’s also possible I’m reading way too much into Nathan’s comments, so, to be safe, I pasted the transcript of our brief exchange below. Read between the lines and tell me what conclusions you draw.

Is it fair to say there will be a turning point in Booth and Brennan’s relationship in the season finale?
STEPHEN NATHAN: Yes. The season finale is taking shape now and it’s going to be quite a surprise. We literally are in the process of working it out. We’ve had this in our minds for quite a while, and it’s gelling now. It’s going to be a pretty big episode for us in terms of what happens to Booth and Brennan.

As big as last season’s finale?
NATHAN: Yes, but in a very different way. It will be real. [Laughs]. It’s our reality.

No dreams or hallucinations?
NATHAN: No. [The season 4 finale] was a very big episode in terms of production and everything like that. This one will be as big in emotional terms.

Freddy Krueger Brings Nightmare on ‘Bones’

For more than two decades, Freddy Krueger has terrorized children and teenagers by stalking them in their dreams with his burned, disfigured face and razor gloved arms. Soon, however, he’ll be bringing horror on Bones.

According to TV Guide Magazine, Bones has enlisted Robert Englund, the 62-year-old actor who has played the infamous villain a dozen times since the original 1984 Nightmare on Elm Street movie, to grace a slasher-themed episode of the FOX crime procedural series set to air this spring.

In the said Bones episode, Englund is set to play a creepy custodian at Brennan’s old high school. The plot features Brennan planning to skip her high school reunion until a murder sends her and Booth to the scene to investigate.

TV Guide also reports that cast member Emily Deschanel even supplied the show with an actual photo of her taken during her high school years. “They wanted one of me not smiling, so they’re going to doctor it a bit,” says the actress.
