What’s Next for Booth & Brennan
Booth’s current emotional vulnerability after his proposal was turned down by Hannah means that nothing can happen between Booth and Brennan right away. But the duo will be ready to discuss where they stand during the March 17 episode when they get stuck together in an elevator. But executive producer Stephen Nathan told EW that there are some difficulties facing the pair. After all, Booth made it clear at the end of the last episode that he only wanted Brennan to be his partner, because he’s simply not ready for another potential heartbreak: "I think it is setting up that next difficulty between them, which is ‘We’re just partners now.’ If they jump right back into their old relationship, it wouldn’t be real. Then the whole thing with Hannah was a lie. And if that’s the case, then you can’t trust anything that happens emotionally with these characters" Nathan says.
