BONES: Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz Preview the Finale that ‘Changes Everything,’ and More

BONES has been off the air for a few weeks, but the show returns this Monday for the first of two brand new episodes (the season finale airs the following week, May 19th).

To get fans (even more) excited about the final two hours of the season, BONES stars Emily Deschanel (Brennan) and David Boreanaz (Booth) hopped on a conference call with reporters and shared a bit of what’s to come…

On the new squintern:

BONES is adding yet another squint to the mix in this Monday’s new episode, and as you might expect, there is a bit of tension between the newbie and Brennan.

“Brennan thinks that the new squintern is very good at her job, but she does not care for the way she guesses about things and makes assumptions,” Deschanel explained. “And Brennan is by-the-book and doesn’t appreciate that. Laura Spencer plays the new intern [Jessica]…and she’s kind of an intuitive person, she’s very smart, her intuition comes from experience, but she throws things out, and [in] the episode coming up, she [says,] ‘I’m just getting a vibe this [victim] was an athlete.’ And then we get evidence that he was an athlete.”

And Brennan isn’t the only one thrown by Jessica.

“She really rubs Sweets the wrong, but then that attention might turn in a romantic way,” Deschanel noted. “She soon has some interest in Sweets. That’s kind of an interesting development. Brennan respects her, but likes to keep her in line, because she goes off on tangents a bit. She’s a little too intuitive for Brennan.”

On the finale:

BONES boss Stephen Nathan has been teasing for months how huge the finale will be, and both Deschanel and Boreanaz backed him up with their previews of “The Recluse in the Recliner.”

“There’s a big cliffhanger,” Deschanel teased. “There’s a lot going on for Booth and for Brennan…There’s a huge thing that happens at the end of the episode that we’re not going to tell you about now, but it changes everything for a while — not only with Booth and Brennan, between them, but between everything. Booth’s job, possibly Brennan’s job. I can’t tell you exactly how it changes things but it will change the dynamic, and kind of everything about them and their work and their relationships.”

“I think it puts them in a different place,” Boreanaz added. “I think it’s interesting to see at the end of this run — especially season 9 and this finale — [because] there’s a lot of destructive forces that come upon us, and we find out there’s more to it than meets the eye, and they’ve be working underground for a while. Whether that’s through conspiracy theories or stuff they’ve been hiding from the FBI or the Jeffersonian, it all kind of comes to a head, and it’s pretty detrimental. Things will change…and there will be things they have to adjust to. And I keep saying adjusting, because it will definitely be different [after this].”

And as Booth and Brennan deal with the latest bump in the road, Boreanaz and Deschanel each praised the other’s work in their emotional scenes.

“Emily does such an amazing job,” Boreanaz said. “This last episode is very emotional, and has some really great arcs in it for her character. I’ve seen it, and [she’s] amazing to watch. There were some days that were kind of rough because we were going through this, and Emily kept it together, but she elevated her game, and I’m so proud of her for that. It was a hard, hard shoot to do, and it took a toll on everybody.”

“David and I have some amazing stuff in this episode — he is awesome in it, too,” Deschanel added.

As for the finale case itself, Boreanz called the body “particularly grotesque,” and Deschanel previewed that it will tie into another recently “closed” investigation.

“This is an unusual investigation, because the dead body…there’s a connection between Wesley Foster, who is the dead person [in the finale] — Booth gets a phone call from him, a mysterious phone call from someone he doesn’t know, who says he wants to talk to him about the McNamaras, who were the people related to the Ghost Killer case,” Deschanel teased. “In fact, Stephanie McNamara was the Ghost Killer. This has to do with the broader parts of the McNamaras. So Booth gets a call from this guy, who is a conspiracy blogger, and the next thing you know, this guy is burned to death in his trailer. A very suspicious circumstances, and it leads us to think there might be people involved with this at the FBI. It leads to lots of things, and is connected to the whole story.”

On Boreanaz directing:

Boreanaz once again stepped behind the camera to direct the season finale — this is his third time directing a season closer, and his eighth episode overall — but he allowed that there were some unique challenges to directing this year’s installment.

“It’s always a challenge to take on something like the season finale,” Boreanaz admitted. “You get to the end of the season and everybody’s a little tired and worn out; the patience is thin. And with this specific season finale, there was so much information I had to gather up and put out there in one 45 minute hit, made it difficult and challenging. There were a lot of developments involved: we’re dealing with a big, huge hearing in front of Congress. A battle with other forces that could compromise Bones and Booth’s relationship, as well as the outcome of where they’re heading as far as season 10 is concerned. You take all of that into account, and it’s definitely a journey. By the end of it, you’re pretty exhausted.”

Meanwhile, Deschanel only had praise for her co-star.

“I love being directed by David,” she gushed, noting she would say the same thing even if she wasn’t on the record. “I think David is just really talented as a director as well as an actor. He has a whole other career if he wants it…he is great technically, he’s good with the actors, he’s decisive, he knows what he wants, he knows what he doesn’t want, he comes in — I’m always amazed that he’s dealing with all these incredible elements and he makes it seem so easy. Huge scenes…there’s a lot that goes on in this episode, without giving too much away. A lot of elements, and he does it all with ease. And I love working with him.”

BONES airs Mondays at 8 PM on Fox.

    I have watched for nine years and I own the dvd’s and still watch the reruns. I am hoping the end will be good. I don’t mind change as long as Booth and Bones are together in love with each other. change whatever but don’t mess with their relationship.I am glad there is a tenth season and hope it goes on for several more. I am a true fan and because of it many of my friends and family watch. Love you all….

    I agree with Diane, but also will be very unhappy if you destroy Booth credibility and integrity. He’s what holds all of them together.

    You couldn’t have put “spoiler alert” for those of us that actually like to wait until the episode(s) air?! Rude.

    This knowledge makes me a bit uneasy. I love the show the way it is. I also have all the videos, watch 4 reruns a day and all the new episodes. This is far the best show I can recall being on tv, and I ain’t no young chicken. LOL I was around when tv started. Please, this is the ONLY show that I would miss if it went off. I know that in life things change, but whatever it is, don’t let it change the whole essense of the show. It is absolutely wonderful.

    I agree with Dottie… all the talk of an ‘enormous change’ is making me pretty nervous. I didn’t like the Beginning in the End(season five finale) because there was the possibility that the show was changing in a bad way…no more partners. And now I’m dreading the end…dun dun duuuun.

    The preview for the finale at first terrified me. Then I remembered when friends tell me how nervous they are after seeing a possible heart stopping /worry some preview. They are meant to do that to viewers. They are meant to deceive & make sure you watch.

    And for this particular finale I’m even more confident things will not be as bad as previews. Any that worry about the shows future and/or David Boreanaz’s character?… Google and see what u find. And as for D.B/Booth survival status…. Only take what he said to his Twitter followers (same for any character u might worry about. Otherwise you will get conflicting reports)

    As for the game changer/ big cliff hanger…. I’m not sure it will be about Bones & Booth. It will affect them but just b/c it gives the suggestion one of their jobs might change or be in danger doesn’t mean that’s the huge thing. And what I say next is purely suggestion of what I think it could be. What if it was someone close who was the mole brought up in the conclusion of the Ghost killer arc. And if the real ghost killer isn’t dead or there was a partner that could change things.

    My last suggestion(s)/possibility(ies) for now is something that personally happens to Booth &/or Bones is this… Booth is seriously injured (hopefully not a repeat coma) but something that makes him have to re- learn to walk or leave w/ fans wondering will he be able to walk ever again?! I LOVE DB/ Booth & don’t want that to happen yet at the same time I’d love to see a vulnerable side. I believe DB would handle that struggle well (acting wise). The other is who ever put Booth in a possible life threatening situation could make Bones want to kill said person.

    That all for now except I am now envisioning the cliffhanger ending a gun shot going off as the screen fades to black.

    Let me know what you all think… Even if its to say I’m crazy.

    PS- one other surprise but can’t think details wise how it will change things…. Zach returns for some reason.

    Really done. Cross your fingers that I get more than 3 hrs sleep 2night!

    This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader
    entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you
    had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
