BONES Season 8 Premiere: ‘The Future in the Past’ You Ask, I Answer
September 4, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
BONES fans, I just finished watching the season 8 premiere, “The Future in the Past” and the only word that keeps repeating in my mind is “wow.” It’s that good. (Probably my favorite season premiere since season 5.)
To celebrate the occasion (and because you guys clearly haven’t gotten enough BONES content today), I’m answering a few of the questions you sent in about “The Future in the Past.” But as a reminder, the intention of this is never to ruin the episode for you, so there might be more teases than flat-out spoilers.
With that being said, keep reading for more!
Just how “furious” is Booth at Brennan for leaving? - @geraghtyvl (via Twitter)
Like BONES creator Hart Hanson teased, it’s really not that simple. Did he miss his family like crazy? Heck yeah. Is he mad at other people for being separated from them and/or not helping him get in contact with them? Absolutely. But it’s not like Booth and Brennan get into a knockdown, drag-out fight.
[H]ow does [B]ooth react to seeing Christine?:D -

Absolutely adorably. Christine has gotten so big, and she’s clearly happy to see her daddy.
Aside from B&B and Angela, do Sweets and Hodgins have significant roles in the premiere? – @rex953 (via Twitter)
There’s a moment with Hodgins in the season premiere that is SO GOOD, it literally caused me to knock over my drink. (You’ll see a side of him I don’t think any of us thought was really possible.) As for Sweets, he gets tasked with something very important due to a character development that occurred last year.
[H]ow is that Brennan covertly returns to the Jeffersonian lab?? I mean did she fool agent Flynn with the blond hair? – @OkBones (via Twitter)
The wig ain’t that good. While Fox did tip their hand a little too much in showing Brennan back at the Jeffersonian, you did notice who was with her, right?
[H]ow long will ED have to keep that hair color? – @ToZiKa (via Twitter)
Brennan is not blonde the entire episode.
And a couple of bonus teases: When I spoke with BONES executive producer Stephen Nathan, he teased that Cam’s new love interest was “somebody that we’ve seen more than once” and maybe I’m crazy, but it seems like the seeds of a potential romance may be planted in the premiere.
And from BONES star Michaela Conlin (Angela): “I can say there are flowers. How about that for a spoiler?” (After you watch the premiere, you’ll see that actually is an excellent spoiler.)
Are you counting down the days until BONES’ season premiere?
