The fourth season finale of Bones, which found Booth and Brennan in bed together though only in a dream, divided longtime fans of the mismatched forensic duo along the lines of whether they should or shouldn’t get together. Come season 5, the dynamics is going to be different, though, now that Booth is starting off on a clean slate following his brain injury. But hope is still not lost. I even hear that Booth will convey some pretty strong feelings towards Brennan in the episodes to come. So does this mean that Booth and Bones will finally fall in love?
Warning: This article contains some spoilers!!!
Not exactly, according to TV Guide’s Mickey O’Connor who reveals, “Booth will demonstrate some pretty strong feelings right off the bat. A related aside: My great-uncle Andy had a brain tumor. Before his surgery, he loved nothing more than a plate of fried eggs and bacon. Afterward, the mere smell of bacon, or any pork product really, made him sick to his stomach. Bones is the bacon.”
That must be pretty tough to take for Brennan, as well as some Bones fans, but I’m sure that Booth fending off Brennan would be fun to watch. It even opens up other possibilities for this odd couple. Maybe Brennan would go to even greater lengths just to get Booth to like her— or at least bring back what they used to have. Perhaps, in the process, Booth will even find herself falling for him. On the other hand, I’m not sure Brennan’s the type who would do just that.
Just two weeks to go and counting! Bones returns for its highly anticipated fifth season on Thursday, September 17 on FOX.
