BONES Season 10 Finale Recap: ‘The Next in the Last’

Hey BONES fans! Here we are at the end of season 10! What did you think of this episode, “The Next in the Last” (also sometimes referred to as “The End in the End”)? I would have previously said I didn’t have some internal list of wants/needs for a BONES finale, but now that I’ve seen what COULD have been the series finale, I realize I had/have some expectations. This episode was an exercise in relief and frustration for me; moments I disliked had more weight as I thought “THIS IS HOW THEY WERE GOING TO END THE SERIES?!” but ultimately brought relief because there is another season. (Yay!) What I *did* like was tinged with frustration because what would have been terrific endings now seem hard to top…and so on!

Have you seen the older Adam Sandler movie, BIG DADDY? In it, a surprise party is planned for someone but the wrong people show up first and get the “SURPRISE” yell. The guest of honor shows up a bit later and the reaction is subdued, and the party planner yells to Sandler’s character, “WE WASTED THE GOOD SURPRISE ON YOU!” I loved so many moments in this episode (like the Booth/Caroline scenes), and in last week’s episode (like Brennan and Angela’s conversation) that I couldn’t help feeling, if somehow all of these characters are around next season again, that WE WASTED THE GOOD GOODBYES ON YOU! about these episodes, haha. But of course, if the show HAD ended for good and not done any of this stuff, I would have led the parade to set the internet on fire or whatever. So yes, haha, conflicting emotions.  More on this later. For now, let’s discuss the case.

BONES: Stephen Nathan on Saying Goodbye to the Show (For Now)

As BONES’ tenth season comes to an end, characters could be making some major life-changing decisions.

Whether those changes come to fruition or not, the team will have to deal with a significant challenge in Thursday’s season finale: a case brings (the still-dead) Pelant back into the team’s life.

And while BONES will return for an 11th season this fall, its long-time showrunner, Stephen Nathan, is stepping down. (BONES writers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson will run season 11.)

When Nathan’s exit was announced, Fox shared that in the immediate future, he would be working on other projects, but he planned on returning “later” in season 11. Nathan — who has worked on the Fox drama since the first season — echoed that sentiment to me during a recent interview sharing, “It’s time to take a step back, get a little bit of perspective, do some other things, and then come back a little refreshed, hopefully.”

But with his (temporary) goodbye looming, I asked Nathan how he felt about leaving the series, for now, and what about the experience has meant the most to him/what he was most proud of. His answers are below, and speak (beautifully) to what the show has meant to him throughout the years. (And be sure to check back here after the BONES finale for a post-mortem with Nathan about what went down)…

It’s a very bittersweet experience; I could stay with the show forever. [Laughs] And I fully expect to come back in some form or another, [but] a full-on decade is a long time. It’s time to take a step back, get a little bit of perspective, do some other things, and then come back a little refreshed, hopefully.

And also, it’ll be great for the show to have some new blood. [They’ll] see things in a different way, which is always good. Jon and Michael are terrific. They’re going to do a spectacular job, I have no doubt.

But it’s difficult to leave, even temporarily, this group, which has been a close and loved family for ten years. It’s a bittersweet experience. There’s more I want to do, but I assume that’s always the case. That’s what it’s like for me [right now].

I’ll miss the actors. The crew. I’ll miss the characters…I’ve been there every episode. Before this, I don’t think I had been on a show longer than three years, which I always thought was my limit. But there was something kind of special about BONES — the show, and the collection of people who produced it, and then the life it had, and my connection to that life. It’s very, very rare, and very, very special.

I look back at the process, and the experience of the show. To me, the greatest thing was being able to be involved in the emotional life of these characters and see them grow and change as I was hopefully growing and definitely changing. [Laughs] Because the characters become a reflection of you, in a way, as you’re writing the show. And you are changed by the characters. It’s a real symbiotic experience.

It is true, when you see them in a particular situation and you write through that, you’re learning stuff about yourself. If you explore those things honestly, there’s a certain honesty that’s transmitted to the audience, that’s shared with the audience. That’s the most gratifying. Those scenes that, personally, I’ve been able to write, that hopefully touch people. That either make them laugh or show a certain absurdity to life. Or that show a sweetness or difficulty in life. Those scenes were always the most satisfying to me.

And also, there were some times we got to do political episodes. I don’t mean government[-related], but episodes that touched on issues that were very important to us. And hopefully we could do them in a way that allowed people to see many sides of an issue.

[On] BONES…the black and white issues are never interesting. And BONES is a very, very gray show. We didn’t have, on a weekly basis, a bad guy and a good guy. We always had people who were caught in terrible situations where they made bad choices. And we would frequently feel terrible for a killer, or rejoice over someone being killed. It was unpredictable in that way. Because I think that’s what life is. We tried to reflect that. And when that worked? That was the most satisfying.

Whether it’s making someone laugh or someone cry or make them see the world in a way they had never seen it before: that’s all anybody can ask for in this business.

BONES’ season finale airs tonight at 8 PM on Fox.

When BONES returns next Thursday, Booth and Brennan will be separated — he will be in jail (and not faring well), while Brennan will be free, trying to clear his name.

But Booth and Brennan have been through a lot over the years (Pelant, Gravedigger, etc.)…so where does this latest bit of trauma fit in with what they’ve survived so far? BONES stars David Boreanaz (Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) weighed in on that, and offered some unique (and ridiculously adorable) teases about the first couple of episodes…

BONES’ Booth isn’t faring too well in prison, and as the first clip from season 10 shows, his emotional trauma might not even be the biggest issue he’s facing — a whole lot of prisoners (and guards) want him to pay.

Check out a scene from “The Conspiracy in the Corpse”…

When BONES boss Stephen Nathan has teased the season 10 premiere over the past few months, he teased that “the first episode does go a long way towards the resolution of the conspiracy,” but that not everything would be resolved. And considering the photos from the second episode, “The Lance to the Heart” show the team investigating who set up Booth, it seems there is still some work to be done.

Check out the photos…

We’re just three weeks away from BONES’ season 10 premiere, and there’s already been a lot said about what went down at the end of last season and what’s to come.

And since BONES stars David Boreanaz (Booth) and Emily Deschanel (Brennan) already gave their teases about what’s in store for the first episode, I asked their co-stars Michaela Conlin (Angela), Tamara Taylor (Cam), and TJ Thyne (Hodgins) for their best hint about what the premiere will bring…

When BONES ended its ninth season, a wounded Booth was falsely arrested, and a distraught Brennan was forcibly removed from his hospital room. The show will pick up months later, with Booth still in jail (and suffering from PTSD), as Brennan has been working to get him out.

So where does this leave the duo when Booth inevitably does get out of jail? I spoke with BONES star Emily Deschanel (Brennan) about that, going undercover again, and more…
