We're all for our favorite TV characters getting shot by Cupid's arrow, but now that an actual sniper is on the loose on Bones...we'd rather everyone just stay indoors.
"Brennan and Booth forever!" yell half the fans. "Don't like 'em together!" scream the other half. Can't please everybody. But maybe we should ask what David and Emily think.
"I think that Booth will find himself really in a place where he'll make some decisions," David tells us. "And I think he'll come to a big decision whether or not he wants to continue with the present relationship he's in now or maybe go back to the one everyone wants him to go back to." Choosing between Temperance and Hannah (Katheryn Winnick)? It's about to be a girlfight! Right?
Wrong. "We're not exactly girlfight kind of people," laughs Emily. "She (Hannah) catches wind that I have feelings for Booth and she addresses that with me and it's interesting. I think we both like each other and that almost makes it worse." Two girls wanting the same guy and getting along? What's the fun in that?
But fans thirsting for blood that doesn't involve hair-pulling and face-scratching can find it in the upcoming sniper storyline, which is almost upon us. "We have a sniper coming up who may go over a few episodes," Emily explains. "It's an arc that's action-packed and intense and dramatic. And Booth may have come across [the sniper] in his life before because he's quite a good sniper himself, being an Army ranger before." Not only is the sniper going to cause some physical damage, but he's about to infiltrate Booth's mental world.
"It's a character that Booth has known in his past, a guy who's coming back to cause some damage and create some problems for the people that he's around and also for Booth's mentality," reveals David, who directed the first episode featuring the sniper. "Emotionally it was interesting to see how Booth was revved up during the whole episode, trying to figure out who this sniper was, get into his mind and find out who it was at the end. It's going to be an interesting arc."
All this, plus the return of Gravedigger? Damn, when Bones comes back...it comes back. And lucky for us, it finally returns with new episodes Jan. 20, right after that one show you might have heard of: American Idol.
Booth + Brennan or Booth + Hannah? Or perhaps you want to see a single Booth? And what do you make of this crazy sniper storyline? Tell us everything on your mind, Bones fans!
