Two regular characters are tying the knot in the fifth season ender of Bones, though series creator Hart Hanson hints that the show might actually bypass the actual ceremony. Don’t worry though, it won’t be one of those dream sequence storylines nor will it be an exchange of vows via Post-It note a la Grey’s Anatomy.
Could it be Booth and Brennan? I doubt it. But executive producer Stephen Nathan reveals that their relationship will take a radical turn following the 100th episode, which flashbacks to Booth and Brennan’s first case together and serves as a catalyst for what’s to come at the end of the season.
“After the 100th episode, they will reassess and reexamine their relationship,” Nathan tells Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello. “They’re going to be going off on a different trajectory than we have been seeing this season.
“For most of this season we’ve seen Booth struggling with his feelings for Brennan,” Nathan adds. “And I think after the 100th, they might be a bit more resolved. We’ll start off in a new direction for both of them.”

If you think that “new direction” will involve Booth and Brennan actually consummating their relationship, think again. According to Nathan, that’s not likely to happen this season. “I think their relationship is going to take a far more interesting turn. I think it’ll be much more interesting than just consummating the relationship. It’ll stir everyone up a lot more,” he says.
Bones‘ 100th episode is slated to air on April. Meanwhile, fans can catch a new episode of Bones every Thursday at 8pm on FOX.
