Tonight, Fox’s Bones (Mondays, 8/7C) closes out its eighth season with the return of Christopher Pelant – who seems to be targeting Booth rather than Bones. Last week, Emily Deschanel spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers about the finale and the unusual way Pelant is operating now that he has Hodgins’ money to go with his own unique genius.

In this week’s very different episode of Bones (Fox, Mondays, 8/7C), Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan is shot while working late at the Jeffersonian. Even as she undergoes emergency surgery and her friends work to find the shooter, Brennan finds herself in the home where she grew up – talking with her late mother!
On Thursday just past, series star Emily Deschanel spoke with a group of bloggers/journalists about making this unusual episode and how the events of the episode might affect Brennan – immediately and going forward.
It’s always a fun call when Bones (Fox, Mondays, 9/8C) showrunners Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan are at the other end of the line. With upheaval in the lives of the show’s characters – forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, FBI Special Agent Booth Seeley and their infant daughter are living together following Tempe’s flight from a murder charge (framed by the psychopathic Christopher Pelant); FBI psychologist Dr. Lance Sweets has broken up with his fiancée and is living in his office, and other relationships are about either happen of get shaken up – there’s plenty for Hanson and Nathan to talk about and a variety of ways to talk about them without giving away too many spoilers.
The following is what happened when the usual group of bloggers/journalists took part in a conference all Q&A with Hanson and Nathan, late last week, about the show’s first new episode following three weeks of pre-emptions.
Whenever you get Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan, the co-showrunners of fox’s hit series Bones (Mondays, 9/8C), talking about their show, you can planning on both learning something new about the show and being grandly entertaining by them.
For the eighth season, Hanson and Nathan were in fine form – riffing on short-term memory loss; when to get Booth and Bones back together; hinting at the continuing spectre of some computer genius Big Bad; the new guy in Cam’s life, and writing together (among many other things).
In Bones’ (Fox, Mondays, 8/7C) eighth-season premiere, The Future in the Past, there’s a new forensic anthropologist in town – more precisely, in Dr. Temperance Brennan’s (former) office!
One of the best things about the return of Bones [Fox, Mondays, 8/7C] is the opportunity to chat with series creator Hart Hanson and showrunner Stephen Nathan. As you might expect from the series itself, these are two funny, charming guys – and with the birth of the show’s lead couple’s baby, with all its attendant potential for the funny, they certainly didn’t let us down when they spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers last week [one day prior to learning of the series’ renewal for an eighth season].
