After the beautifully promising promo for next week’s new Bones, “The Hole In The Heart”, I think fans can rest assured that Booth and Brennan will be evolving into what they’re meant to be. EW cornered EP Stephan Nathan and got the finale scoop.
“We wanted to try to have their relationship evolve in a realistic way while making sure the show still had the same tension that has made it appealing for six years now,” he says. “That said, we know we can’t repeat ourselves. We will switch it up. It will change the show in a fundamental way — but it will stay the same. We are not going to embrace the Moonlighting curse. I can say that unequivocally. You know, half of the [fans] are saying ‘get them together, get them together.’ Others say, ‘You can’t get them together. Once you get them together, it’s going to suck. It’s the Moonlighting curse and the show will end.’ Well, hopefully, both groups of people will be pleased. We’re excited about where the show will be going. It’s a place that we haven’t seen any show go before. I’m not saying we’re reinventing the wheel or anything, but it’s not where anyone expects it to go,” Nathan says.
