Did they or didn’t they — that is the question. Or at least it will be after you watch this season’s penultimate episode of Bones on Thursday (Fox, 8/7c).
Those lucky enough to attend Monday’s Bones-themed Paley Center for Media panel (moderated by yours truly) got an early peek at the episode and, without giving too much away, I can confirm that by the end of the hour viewers are left with the impression that Booth and Brennan may have finally sealed the deal.
I can also confirm that the scene in the promo that shows a grief-stricken Brennan and Booth collapsing into bed plays a central role in the mystery.
What are viewers to believe? “I think what the audience should believe… is they better tune in [for the May 19 season finale],” show boss Hart Hanson shared at the Paley gathering. “The answer might be there.”
He later added that the long-running “will they/won’t they” dynamic between B&B “is an issue that has to be dealt with pretty damn soon.”
As soon as… this Thursday, perhaps?
