That seems to be what Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan is hinting when Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello dished for some scoop on the fifth season finale. Though Nathan does not actually say what's going to happen between Booth and Brennan, he does reveal that the last episode of the season will be a turning point in their relationship.
"Yes. The season finale is taking shape now and it's going to be quite a surprise. We literally are in the process of working it out. We've had this in our minds for quite a while, and it's gelling now. It's going to be a pretty big episode for us in terms of what happens to Booth and Brennan," Stephen Nathan reveals.
When Ausiello asked if it's going to be as big as last season's finale, Nathan says, "Yes, but in a very different way. It will be real. It's our reality...No [dreams or hallucinations. The season 4 finale] was a very big episode in terms of production and everything like that. This one will be as big in emotional terms."
Reading between the lines, it does sound like Booth and Brennan may hook up for real. But I won't blame you if you're still skeptical about the whole thing. Because as much as Bones fans would love the idea of Booth and Brennan having a legit roll in the hay, last season's "dream-sex" storyline has already scorched viewers with a lot of disappointment.
Will Bones play the "Booth and Brennan having sex" card again? Or is Stephen Nathan alluding to a completely different direction?
