'Bones': Will Booth & Brennan smooch in the season premiere?
The much-hyped Booth/Brennan sex scene which turned out to be little more than a figment of someone's imagination came and went a couple months ago, but the cast of "Bones" is now back at work and we're starting to hear a bit of intel on the upcoming fifth season premiere.
Will fans have a reason to smile again? Think so.
First of all, Booth's amnesia? Not really an issue, at least not in the traditional sense. Apparently, when Booth asked Brennan who she was in May's finale, he didn't mean to imply that he didn't remember her. Apparently Booth just wasn't sure whether she was his partner, Bones, or his wife/baby mama from the hallucination/alternate reality he experienced while drugged up.
Because of his confusion, we're hearing Booth will continue to struggle with romantic feelings for the good Dr. B throughout the season premiere and may even kiss her after rescuing her from a dangerous situation.
But just because B/B are sort of taking steps forward in their relationship, there's no reason to think they'll be back in the bedroom anytime soon. Executive producer Hart Hanson has already said that there won't be any sex between them this season... a pretty daring statement to fans, many of whom are still bitter about getting blue balled by the season finale.
However, Hart and his cohorts were the ones who insisted the finale sex scene would be real, so it's certainly possible that the whole "no sex this season" stuff could just be another bait-and-switch to prevent the surprise from being ruined.
Oh and p.s., on the non-relationship front, EW.com is reporting that Cyndi Lauper will be making her "Bones" debut during the season premiere as a psychic who attempts to help Booth and the squints solve a murder. Anyone else hoping this inspires Brennan to do an encore performance of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"?
