On the Season 8 finale of the Fox drama series Bones, evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) returns to toy with the Jeffersonian team, and this time Booth (David Boreanaz) is the target. A long-running problem for the team and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) for some time now, his return should make for quite an intense season finale, as he’s proven to be one of the most formidable villains on the show.
During this recent interview to discuss the end of the season, actress Emily Deschanel talked about just how close to home things will get in the finale, how far Brennan is willing to go to keep those she loves safe, what Brennan’s mind-set is at this point, that there will be some closure with the Pelant story but it will continue next season, and where Pelant ranks among the villains that they’ve had to go up against, throughout the seasons. Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
On the Fox drama series Bones, now in its eighth season, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is shot while working late at the Jeffersonian lab and rushed to the hospital in critical condition. While at the hospital, she struggles with visions of her mother (played by Brooke Langton) that defy her usual logic. Meanwhile, all evidence suggests that Brennan’s attacker may be linked to the Jeffersonian.
During this recent interview, actress Emily Deschanel talked about how getting shot will change Brennan, what it was like to get new insight about her character after eight seasons, how emotional the episode was to shoot, whether Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan might ever get married, how there will be a new squintern coming up, that Pelant (Andrew Leeds) will still return this season, and that she still hopes to direct an episode of the show, in the future. Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
The seventh season isn’t finished yet, and it actually isn’t returning from a quick break until April 2nd, but Fox just announced that Bones has been picked up for an eighth season already where it will hit a milestone 150 episodes. Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, says, “Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible Bones cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I’m really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season.” However, if it’s only one season, I’m wondering if this could be the last season for Bones, much like this eighth season for House M.D. Hit the jump for the full press release.
