Bones has some big plans for the upcoming February sweeps episode, "A Shot In The Dark", including our favorite bone lady getting shot!! Executive Producer Stephen Nathan reveals that during Brennan's altered state, she will have life changing family reunion.
“Brennan is working on a case that someone does not want her to solve. And in their attempt to prevent her from doing that, she gets shot and has a near-death experience where she meets her mother again.” The family “reunion” forces Brennan to take a good hard look at her belief system. “This is the further evolution of Brennan’s character,” explains Nathan. “She is somebody who has been so literal, so rational and so reasonable; she wants everything to be explained. And now she is having an experience that is inexplicable, so she has to admit that there are things that are not explainable. As much as she tries to discount it and dismiss it, it changes her and makes her a bit more open to the world. Brennan’s heavenly run-in with her mom will also give viewers insight into “what she was like as a kid, before she became the Brennan that we know. She picks up the relationship with her mother where it left off.”
