When last we left Bones, Brennan had went on the lamb with baby Christine, leaving Booth a hot mess. EP Stephan Nathan spoiled about what we can expect to see when Bones returns in season 8 this Fall. Nathan reveals some intriguing insight into Booth's true emotional state and what his next move will be.
"He's furious," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. "[He thinks], 'Isn't there some way she could include him? Why didn't she trust him?" However, Nathan notes that Booth's practicality will eventually win out. "He realizes the only [other] way to keep [Brennan and Christine] safe would be to do something illegal like taking out Pelant," Nathan says. "We wanted Booth to remain a good man. To put him on the run compromises his character and his job. So, when Brennan does return, [Booth] is still the honorable man that he's been for seven seasons."
