BONES: Tamara Taylor on Cam’s Romance with Arastoo, the Return of Pelant, and More

January 18, 2013 by  

BONES’ Cam has been all about work, work, work for most of the series (flings with Angela’s ex-husband and Michelle’s OB-GYN aside), but now, it seems one man — squintern Arastoo — has stepped up to make himself a serious contender for Cam’s heart.

Unfortunately, fans won’t get to see more of the new couple for a little bit.

“Do you know what? I’m not quite sure [what’s ahead],” Tamara Taylor (Cam) admitted when we spoke last week. “I haven’t seen him since we introduced them [as a couple]. I think he’s coming back in the next episode or two.” [Pej Vahdat (Arastoo) did start filming his next episode a few days ago.]

But that’s not to say Cam’s romance with Arastoo isn’t getting exposed while he’s off-screen.

“We just had an episode where Michelle shows up and doesn’t tell Cam she’s in town,” Taylor teased. “I bust her, and then we have this whole honesty moment where she busts me and says, ‘What’s going on with you?’ And I say, ‘I’m dating someone. And he is a worker here.’ And she’s like, ‘Really? Really?’ So I completely blow my cover with her. She supports it and she knows.”

Unfortunately for Cam, Michelle finding out the truth will be the least of her problems in the next batch of episodes — Pelant returns in this Monday’s brand new episode and things get intense, fast.

“Pelant is going to come back,” Taylor said. “He comes back in such a gnarly way. Such a gnarly, creepy, scary way. It’ll be a great episode. We all stay alive, but he does get the better of us. I don’t like him at all.”

And with the show getting an early renewal for season 9, one could make the argument that the Pelant arc could now be continued on for another year. But if Taylor had her way, he’d be shut down sooner versus later.

“I hope not,” Taylor said. “He’s so damn creepy — he’s just too damn creepy. It would be nice if we found a way to contain him.”

On a lighter note, Taylor pointed out she did get to escape one particularly alarming upcoming episode…an investigation that leads the team to a roller derby team.

“I did not get to go undercover as a roller derby queen,” she said. “Michaela [Conlin (Angela)] I think did a brilliant job [going undercover]. So Cam has basically had the love interest and Michelle. That’s been it so far. So I’m curious to see where it all is going to go.”

BONES airs Mondays at 8 PM on Fox.

    I was surprised when Arastoo was revealed as Cam’s new love interest earlier this season. I’m excited to see where they may take the romance by the end of the season. Pelant has been one of the best villains the show has had, and I’m excited to see him come back on Monday’s episode. I’ll miss when the show airs because I work a late shift at DISH Monday. Thankfully my new DISH Hopper will catch the episode for me automatically with PrimeTime Anytime. It will record the four major networks automatically, and two more of my choice, during primetime. I can keep up with Bones on my schedule; while my family records their favorite shows, and we don’t fight over the DVR anymore.
