Bones Wedding is a Sure Thing!
Patricia Morris Buckley — Sr. Staff Writer
In what must be the most voyeuristic moment every in Comic-Con history, Booth proposed marriage to Bones at the Friday panel and she accepted! Of course, it was really stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel playing the roles of Booth and Bones, but fans will take what they can get.
But is it for real? You bet! “They will get married this season,” promised producer Hart Hanson. “And,” he glanced at his stars, “it will be better scripted.”
At the end of season 8, we saw Bones propose to Booth, then rescind his acceptance. In a fun twist, the moderator asked the stars to read the script of those scenes, only Boreanaz and Deschanel decided to switch roles (let the fan fiction begin). They could barely keep a straight face and the audience lapped it up.
Hanson also spilled that the beginning of the season takes place after a three-month jump. The characters are having a tough time relating to each other, especially when they go undercover in the second episode. He also hinted that we haven’t seen the last of the intensely evil Christopher.
“I don’t like serial killers,” he admitted. “I realize that goes against all entertainment. But that character, he will last as long as he is interesting.”
He also said that squinterns are expected to not stay long and he’d like the next one to be “someone in a wheelchair who is unbearable.”
A star asked the stars how it felt to act with their “mother” characters this past season. “It was fantastic,” said Boreanaz, whose mother was played by Joanna Cassidy. “We will definitely be seeing her again this season.”
Deschanel said she never expected to meet her character’s mother since she’s dead. But with a little TV magic, it happened. “It was wonderful, after playing this character all these years. Her mother’s abandonment is so much of who she is.”
As for the idea of a Bones movie, Hanson said: “For us to do a movie, the show would have to stop.”
Boreanaz, who is quite a joker, piped in: “We don’t want that to happen.”
“But if it did,” said Hanson, “THEN we’d talk.”
