As we’ve already spoiled that Booth’s mother Marianne~Joanna Cassidy, will appear on the April 15th episode of Bone. I now excited to bring yo this first look as well as a few spoilery Bones bits that will have you wanting to sing and dance the Samba.
“Booth [thinks he] understands what his mother has been through,” Boreanaz says of his character’s warm reception. “But something comes up later that jolts him into thinking differently.” Booth finds out that his mother has spent the last two decades pursuing a singing career, accompanied by her piano-player boyfriend Reggie (CHiPs vet Robert Pine). Now Reggie has popped the question, and Marianne wants her son to walk her down the aisle — but Booth wants no part of it. “That’s when it all blows up,” Cassidy says. Further souring the family reunion is buzzkill Brennan (Emily Deschanel), who grills Marianne about abandoning her sons and asks about the limp Marianne developed after Booth’s abusive father threw her down a flight of stairs years ago. “Brennan’s not being malicious,” Deschanel says. “She’s trying, in her way, to show sympathy.”
Now that Brennan’s dad and Booth’s mom, brother, son and grandfather have all appeared, how long will it be before they return for the couple’s wedding? “The subject is definitely being broached, and I imagine we will end up going down the aisle at some point,” Deschanel says. “But maybe it will be when the show ends.” For the time being, fans will have to settle for a bachelorette party that’s tied to the murder of a male stripper (also in the April 15 episode). “The ladies swarm Booth, thinking he’s a stripper, and his trousers drop,” reveals director Reginald Hudlin. “We like to give the people what they want!”
“There is a connection to Booth’s past,” executive producer Stephen Nathan says about the case in the finale. “We find out about some of his work at the FBI that we didn’t know about. And it appears as if the victims have a close connection to Booth.” So is Booth dirty or is this the work of the returning Pelant? Time will tell. As to the to the more bling-y part of your question: “The notion of marriage is again brought up in the finale,” Nathan teases. “If you thought the pot was stirred [this week], the pot… overflows and messes up the kitchen floor in the season finale.”
