WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!!!
(These are the type of spoilers that I will get punched for. You have been warned.)
Booth’s reaction to the events at the end of the 100th episode:
“After the 100th, we’ll see he’s got to make some changes internally – which is fine for him. He doesn’t see anything as a loss. He’s very optimistic – always has been.”
“I think he took a chance… where he was the one that wanted to go with it and she’s not ready. So, I think that maybe when she gets ready, he won’t be ready – who knows? You have to see how that develops and I don’t think he’ll have any problems working with her. You know, when the moment is so heightened, the feelings are thrown out there on the table like that and they become a little bit more blistering when pain is concerned, but Booth is a very strong character and he’ll move on and continue to be professional with her, but at the same time he’ll have fun poking at her and driving her a bit crazy over that.”
On what it was like to direct the two long-awaited kissing scenes in the 100th episode:
“Knowing the storyline and knowing how I want to do those two moments. I think that the audience is going to be really pleased. I certainly was for both those moments. I think we see both those characters grow in a way from the past, where they kind of came from – some insight – and in the future, what’s going to happen next.”
Which family members we might be seeing:
“I think we’ll tap into Booth’s family members a bit more, maybe next season. It’s nice we’ve been able to see Booth’s grandfather. It would be great to tap into his world a little bit with maybe his mom, his relationship he had with his dad (even if his dad is around)…”
On the High School reunion episode:
“It was great to go back to [Bones'] space and to see the reunion and kind of see how Booth kind of reacted to the people who she was in high school with. It was great getting insight into high school and her early years and how she developed as Bones.”
“Other than that it was a nice high school moment, maybe there’s a nice dance between me and her, but I don’t want to spoil anything else.”
What fan can expect in the season finale:
“In the season finale there will a big shift and change for not only the two characters here (Booth and Bones), but for everybody. I think that it’s a really great season finale and we shot the last scene last week, the end of the episode, and it was hard to get through, but I think it’s going to elevate these characters even more so for the next seasons to come.”
As a fan of the series from the beginning, it was great to listen to David Boreanaz wax poetic about Bones. Thankfully, I’ve already seen Thursday’s return and 100th episode because those are some spoilers I just dropped and knowing myself the way I do, I’d have to read them.
Fortunately, Boreanaz knows how to leave you in suspense and didn’t spoil everything. Although, I’m sure most of you already knew what was coming up, you just didn’t want to admit it to yourself – don’t lie.
What did you think of what David Boreanaz had to say? Anything shock you? Did you already know what was coming up? Do Booth and Bones really belong together?
Let’s hear it!
Catch the return of Bones this Thursday @8pm, on Fox.
