Bones has had the Ghost Killer in the background for the majority of season 9. I'm happy to spoil some fresh and twisty Ghost Killer scoop, straight from Executive Producer Stephan Nathan. Nathan also reveals details about Parker's whereabouts, Christine's anniversary, Female impersonators and much more!!
Even though, as I told you last week, “a complex and conspiratorial” new layer will deepen the mystery in the season finale, the ethereal bandit will actually be caught three episodes prior! ”The Ghost Killer is now slated be resolved in Episode 9.20,” reveals exec producer Stephen Nathan, before quickly clarifying, “One aspect of it is going to be resolved. We will, on one hand, tie up the murdering part, but leave open a far more complicated and nefarious story that will embroil everybody.”
Parker's Trip & Christine's Birthday
“Parker’s in England," but speaking of the little one’s anniversary, the EP calls it “a lighter episodes”, "The Carrot in the Kudzu", that finds Booth and Brennan “investigating a murder that tangentially takes place at a children’s show called The Vegetabills. So there will be dancing and singing vegetables, some of whom are suspects.” Wait — there’s more! “And in the midst of that, Booth is trying to work on Christine’s birthday with Brennan, and we find out that Brennan has never had a b’day party herself when she was a kid. Max ~ returning guest star Ryan O’Neal never threw her a party. So we see Max and Brennan working stuff out and bringing it to the party.” Wait — there’s still more! “Also in that episode, David [Boreanaz] fulfills a lifelong dream of having something to do with a one-man band.”
Rumors have also been been flying that Bones will feature another undercover episode before season 9 is over, however Nathan promises Tony & Roxy will not be making an appearance this season. In fact, the loose lipped EP spoils that undercover isn't exactly how he would describe the episode in question.
Exec producer Stephen Nathan reveals that Booth and Brennan “will be going someplace they have never been before — the world of female impersonators.” But as the boss man stresses, “It’s not an undercover episode,” so don’t expect to see David Boreanaz donning a wig and fishnets.
