'Bones' exclusive: 'Major health crisis' looming for Booth

Davidboreanaz_l Is the long-awaited nookie for Booth and Brennan in the season finale of Bones just a lovely parting gift for David Boreanaz’s character? Probably not, but it sounds like the wisecracking detective will stare death in the face later this season.

“He will be going through a major health crisis,” reveals executive producer Stephen Nathan, “which will cause him to hallucinate.”

Yikes. But whatever Booth’s ultimate fate (the fact that he’s the star
of the show probably bodes well for him), at least viewers won’t be
imagining his sweet, sweet lovemaking with his partner. “The last
episode [of the season] Booth and Brennan are in bed together,” Nathan confirms. “And
we can’t have them in bed naked without having sex.”

And the morning after? Will there be catastrophic Moonlighting-esque
awkwardness? Thankfully, no. “That’s all going to be resolved within
that episode,” Nathan promises, “because we also have to resolve the
fact that Brennan wants to have a child.”

So what do you think, folks? Does the words “health” and “crisis” in
the same sentence as the name “Booth” strike terror into your hearts?
Or do you figure this is just another way for Bones to rattle our…
you know? Sound off below. (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)

    I hope the “nookie” isn’t a hallucination. That would be a total cop-out.

  • Geoff

    Is the first paragraph in English or am I missing something????

  • Melissa

    I hope the sex isnt just a hallucinatiom! That would be annoying… unless it led to the real thing. And since he is a producer/star on the show, this health crisis doesn’t scare me too much!

  • Miss B

    I bet Booth gets drugged by a bad guy, and that’s what causes him to hallucinate.

  • Jenn

    I know Booth will be ok but whenever he is in some kind of trouble I love seeing how Brennan is. Her love really comes thru for him big time. Im glad its coming back soon and will be the rest of the season uninterrupted.

  • Jordan

    Yes, terror! And lots of it!
    But, even so, Booth can’t die. That’s like Gilligan’s Island without the island.
    I still don’t like that Brennan wants a baby, though. It’s very out-of-character for her.

  • Zoe

    DO NOT WANT!!!!!!!!

  • Crystal

    Oh, what the crap…

  • Jackie

    Hasn’t the health crisis/hallucination been done on some other shows this year? I find myself unimpressed with the writers’ creativity. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out…

  • TB

    Didn’t he just “stare death in the face” towards the end of last season?

  • Aydrian

    The nookie is NOT a hallucination. They’ve said that many times. Hell, they said that in this very article.

  • Michelle

    Booth already hallucinated/saw a ghost/whatever in Hero in the Hold. What’s the big deal? Also, I don’t by the Brennan-suddenly-wants-a-kid thing. Seems awful OOC to me.

  • JenJen

    Um, Booth….health…crisis..
    I’m terrified! I hope nothing happens to Booth!!! I already miss Zack!! It would make sense though, they’ve made it clear this season that Booth loves Bones but a health crisis could force Bones to face her feelings about him. We’ll see!

  • Boog

    Hmmmm. My theory: Booth’s back will require surgery. Bet something goes wrong and he dies on the table for a minute. When he wakes, Bones finally admits they have a thing, that she wants kids bc Parker is at the hospital for his dad, and she and Booth act on it when he gets home. Albeit in woman superior.

  • Jena

    Hallucinations, sex and hallucinations, Booth just got done talking to a dead ghost. Why am I afraid this sounds too much like Izzie’s crazy story line from Grey’s?
    Here’s to hoping that the sex is real. And can we learn more about Brennen’s want to have a child now?
