BONES: ‘The Partners in the Divorce’ You Ask, I Answer
September 22, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
It may be the weekend, but that doesn’t stop you guys from wanting BONES scoop, right? (That’s what I thought.)
I had the chance to screen Monday’s brand new episode, “The Partners in the Divorce,” and when I put out the call on Twitter for some questions about the hour, you delivered.
As per usual, the point of this is never to completely spoil what happens. That means plenty of teasing, but the intention is not to ruin your enjoyment of the hour. But hopefully you’ll still enjoy these teases…
[D]o they address what is was like for Brennan to be apart from Booth? And not just the other way around? – @phq2021 (via Twitter)
Someone close to Brennan attempts to get her to talk about what those three months on the run did to her.
[T]he preview of Bones 8×02 said it will have an S rating…care to share any details about that? – @iBones (via Twitter)
Based on the number of questions I got about this, it’s safe to say BONES fans are nothing if not observant. And given what goes down in the episode, I’m giving whomever rates these episodes a little bit of a side-eye for that “S” listing.
Will all the unresolved anger lead Booth & Brennan back to therapy? – @romancemystery (via Twitter)
Booth and Brennan have different ways of handling their problems, but Sweets does play a role in both aspects.
Finn is the intern, right? Are he and Michelle still dating? How is Cam dealing with that now? – @NatesMama1128 (via Twitter)
He is the intern, but his relationship status is never mentioned. (On a quasi-related note, this episode was also the most I’ve liked Finn since he was introduced. So, there’s that.)
[F]rom the [sneak peeks] it looked like there would be some drama, but from the promo it looked like it was to be funny. which 1 will it be? will we finally see B&B talking seriously about their issues? – @Cysvital (via Twitter)
It’s much more dramatic than the silly promos made it out to be. It’s not a tragic hour, but if it had been as light as the ads made it seem to be, I think that could have bordered on disrespectful to the very real issues Booth and Brennan are facing. And yes, they are talking seriously about what has gone down between them.
Were you satisfied by the end of the episode with B/B’s issues? – @biba79 (via Twitter)
I really was. It’s not perfect — and they’re not perfect — but again, this is a legitimate, serious issue they’re dealing with. To pretend everything was perfect and joyful and sunshine and rainbows would be inauthentic and I think would have massively frustrated me. They’re on the right path.
BONES airs Mondays at 8 PM on Fox.
