We have news about a possibly game changing episode for Booth and Brennan. In an upcoming episode of “Bones”, slated to air sometime in February or March, the would be couple will get trapped in an elevator during a snow storm.
This episode, which will air in February or March, will be directed by Boreanaz (who’s also behind the camera on Jan. 27, when the first of the three sniper episodes airs — check out Sandra Gonzalez’s Spoiler Room column tomorrow for more info on that). “There is a blizzard in Washington, which should really ring true to everybody in the East,” Nathan says, laughing. “All the electricity goes out in Washington, and the Jeffersonian is forced to solve this murder very, very quickly because they discover the body is of someone who has a highly contagious disease. There’s no evidence that this disease is out in the world, so the person who killed this woman could be Patient Zero, the person who starts an epidemic. And they have to do this with no fancy electronics or no fancy technology from the Jeffersonian. We’re going back to the days before CSI and grand technology to solve the murder. There’s one wonderful sequence where they have to take an X-ray with no X-ray machine, and they find out how to do it. During this, Booth and Brennan are trapped in an elevator in his apartment building. Alone. So we have all of that fun with Booth and Brennan trapped together, and Brennan trying to solve this murder, and the only thing they really have are their cellphones until their batteries run out. It’s gonna be a great episode for the people who want to see Booth and Brennan be in love and a great episode for all the geeks out there who love the science.” (FYI: This episode is not to be confused with the Feb. 17 Valentine’s Day episode, which has Booth and Brennan alone together. That one, Nathan is more coy about: “They both find themselves alone, both hating Valentine’s Day, and somehow wind up doing something which is very unique to Booth and Brennan,” he teases.)
