Entertainment Weekly has posted a short article about what fans can expect during the season 7 finale of the hit series, Bones. If you want to remain spoiler free, do not read below.
Question: On a scale of Mary Poppins to Saw: Just how nail-biting scary/shocking is the season 7 finale of Bones for Booth and Brennan? Is there any happiness in the episode for them?
Pam, knowing that the season finale will feature the return of creepy hacktivist/serial killer Christopher Pellant (Andrew Leeds), your nerves are understandable — especially if you caught Hart Hanson’s cryptic tweet earlier this week: “Our first conversation about the final image of Bones season 7 morphed into a spirited debate. It ain’t gonna go easy…”
I happened to have Hanson and fellow exec producer Stephen Nathan on the phone that day chatting about the show’s April 2 return, so I asked them to elaborate: “We’re all happy with the story, and we’re all happy with the cliffhanger we have,” Hanson says of the finale episode (now titled “The Past in the Present”). “What we’re actually debating is literally the last image that we leave our audience with. We have options as to how it motors us into season 8. There’s a see-saw between hope and confidence and vulnerability and fear that we have to walk. We’re searching for that last poetic image, and that’s what we will argue about up until the day we shoot it — and I’ll bet ya we still argue about it as we’re putting music on the final shot in the editing room.”
Hanson admitted to being incredibly vague, which is how Nathan intends to keep it. “This is an end to this season that we will be more than vague about — more vague than we usually are — because we really don’t want to tell anybody anything,” Nathan says with a laugh. Could we be losing a character we know and love? “We couldn’t possibly tell you if someone you know and love were [going] to die in a horrible way,” Hanson says. “And we are also not going to say Anthony Perkins does it in Psycho,” Nathan jokes.
The quieter they keep, of course, the more fans will speculate. One theory being batted around The Spoiler Room: What if the cliffhanger is a marriage proposal? Booth (David Boreanaz) told Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the season premiere that she would have to be the one to ask him, and Brennan has been known to take big steps in the wake of a tragedy — she and Booth finally slept together after squintern Vincent Nigel-Murray was killed last season. Perhaps Pellant’s return will be traumatizing enough to get her to pop the question, and the argument is whether the final shot should be one that leaves us elated that Brennan has had this emotional breakthrough or frightened of the dire circumstances bringing it about? Or, maybe the “past in the present” is Booth once again proposing to a woman who’s not the marrying kind, and the cliffhanger is whether Brennan has changed her position on marriage? Theorize below!

Tastemaker Picks : Emily Deschanel
Actress, hit TV show Bones and vegan activist
“I have chosen several brands that I enjoy on a daily basis. A Scent of a Scandal makes candles with a sense of humor and ea apparel designs the softest pieces made from bamboo, and Lavuk creates cutting edge eco fashion. I hope everyone enjoys these brands as much as I do!”
Favorite Charity: Farm Sanctuary
“Farm Sanctuary tackles three causes that are close to my heart, animal suffering, environmental pollution, and human health. Not only is industrialized farming one of the largest contributors to global warming, but it causes unnecessary suffering and death to 10 billion animals and contributes to human disease. I am proud to make Farm Sanctuary my charity of choice.”
FOX has released a new promo for, Bones. April 2nd cannot come soon enough! Bones returns from its winter hiatus in a little over two weeks, and Fox is sending out a save-the-date announcement in the form of a new on-air promo.
Michael Ausiello of TVLine.com has posted two new Bones spoilers. If you prefer to remain spoiler free, do not read the bit below. For anyone else curious about what to expect, read on:
Question: Any scoop about the Bones season finale — specifically the cryptic-sounding cliffhanger?
Ausiello: How about the episode’s cryptic-sounding title? Sources confirm to me exclusively that the season-ender is called, “The Bite in the Beast.” Interpret away in the comments!
Question: You did a great job moderating that slightly wild Bones session at PaleyFest 2012. Did you uncover any scoop that didn’t come out during the panel?
Ausiello: Yes! Prior to the event, Michaela Conlin revealed that a new guy will soon shake things up for Angela, who’s feeling “a little bit of distance” between the free spirit she used to be and her new mommy and wife persona. “An artist type comes into the lab,” she previews, “and brings up some things for her.” But fear not, he won’t get in the way of Angela and Hodgins’ happy ending. “It’s not marriage issues,” she assures us. “It’s really just identity issues more so for Angela.”
The FOX drama, Bones is on its seventh season and returns from hiatus on April 2. Emily Deschanel plays Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, who is set to welcome a daughter with Booth, played by David Boreanaz.
“She’s barely doing it!” Deschanel joked to OnTheRedCarpet.com at a 2012 PaleyFest event for the show. “Pretty amazingly – I think Brennan is kind of capable at pretty much everything she tries. So, it’s no surprise that she can handle parenthood and continuing her work … and writing novels just beautifully. But of course there are challenges along the way.”
“She deals with things that women have to deal with when they have a baby, like hormonal things, emotional connections to the baby, your clothes not fitting right,” Deschanel continued. “It’s fun to actually experience things in my own life and then read it in the script and be like, ‘Hey, wait a second, I’m going through that right now,’ so that’s fun. My character is fairly different from myself, so it’s nice to find similarities right now.”
Deschanel gave birth to her first child with ,em>It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor David Hornsby in September 2011.
Deschanel went on to give some details about how Seeley and Brennan’s relationship will change with their new addition.
“There are definitely arguments and discussions about how you raise children, and we have interesting jobs that you kind of want to shelter from babies that I don’t necessarily do, or my character doesn’t,” Deschanel said. “They go through lots of things that most parents go through, but from the unique perspective of people who fight crime all the time, so you’ll see Brennan in a very unique situation at the end of the season – and it affects her family.”
The show, which aired its first season in 2005, has grown into a hit FOX program with a cult following, and the actress is thrilled it has kept up its momentum.
“I can’t believe it’s been seven seasons, it blows my mind,” Deschanel said. “I feel like in one sense I blinked and all of a sudden I’m here. At the same time, so much has happened in that time that I can look back and say, ‘so many things have happened.’ It’s pretty incredible – not many shows have lasted as long as we have – I thought, you know, ‘maybe this show will last a season – how long could a show about Bones, be?’”
As you can see … Emily Deschanel Daily has a gorgeous new layout! The layout made was by the talented Purple Haze Inc. and I love the way it turned out! I think it is very girlie, very pretty and suits Emily’s personality! (She is pretty fancy, didn’t you know?!)
I am going to be working behind the scenes a lot over the next few weeks. I really want to expand the current content to make this the most comprehensive and complete resource for Em. In the meantime, I hope everyone loves the new layout as much as I do! If you spot any errors, sound off in the comments below!
During the Paleyfest 2012 panel Thursday night, Emily Deschanel opened up to Us Weekly about what five-month-old Henry has been up to.
“He’s wonderful!” The Bones star, 35, gushed when asked about her son with actor Henry Hornsby. “He has two teeth…very advanced for his age. I don’t know if that’s advanced…but it’s unusual!”
Later on during the conference, Deschanel dished about the Season 7 moment Bones fans have been waiting for: the birth of Brennan and Booth’s baby. Unfortunately, Deschanel admitted the scene didn’t go quite as smoothly as she, or her costar David Boreanaz, hoped it would.
“That baby peed on us,” Deschanel laughed. “Henry [had] also peed on me that day…when it happened I said, ‘I’ve been peed on today by two different babies!'”
But despite the diaper-changing hazards she and her character face, the actress couldn’t contain her enthusiasm about her parenting experience in general. “I don’t get a lot of sleep, but I love it,” Deschanel told reporters. “Henry’s awesome!”
Last night, Emily and the cast of Bones attended the Paleyfest 2012 panel moderated by Michael Ausiello. Over 85 HQ and MQ images of Emily have been added into the gallery for your viewing pleasures! Emily looked beautiful in her floral print dress. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
