Emily Deschanel on Booth-Brennan sex: It won't break 'Bones'

Bonessex_lEmily Deschanel admits she finds all the hype surrounding Booth and Brennan’s hookup on Bones next Thursday a little mystifying. “It’s only a few minutes on camera,” she says, “so it feels weird to talk about it so much.” I couldn’t agree more. And to prove it, I’m not going to ask Deschanel… wait a second, did she say a few minutes?! Let’s dish, sister friend!

A lot has been made about what affect the sex will have on Booth and Brennan, but I’m curious what the whole experience has been like for you and David.
It probably strengthened our friendship, even though this kind of thing can probably ruin a friendship. Honestly, he was such a sweet guy. He was more supportive and concerned for me before we started filming than I would be. He had meetings about it. He’s like, “I don’t want anyone around.” He practically kicked out everyone — even the people who had to be there filming! And it’s a fairly tame scene. He was so protective of me; it was very sweet, actually. He wanted to make sure I felt comfortable. Of course, he also made jokes.

It must have been awkward.
It was awkward, but we were prepared for it. I laughed
really hard during our kissing scene last season; it’s just really
weird to kiss your co-star. I laughed this time in rehearsal, but I was
really proud of myself for not laughing when we actually shot it. And
honestly, it is a job. There were technical things we had to worry

How drastically will the sex alter the Booth-Brennan relationship?
It definitely changes the dynamic between the characters.
But it’s done in a very clever way. [Series creator] Hart Hanson wrote
the episode in a way that gets these two characters together — which a
lot of the audience was waiting for — but doesn’t dissipate the sexual
tension between them and, therefore, ruin the show.

Can you say whether Booth’s medical issues are a factor?
Let’s just say there’s definitely a twist. It’s not a dream,
but there are twists. And there are [other] twists at the end of the
episode that will be shocking as well.

Does the finale end with a cliffhanger?
A little bit, yeah. It’s not a matter of life or death, but
it’s kind of huge. There’s a cliffhanger and it has to do with Booth
and Brennan relationship. It puts their relationship in jeopardy.

Is anyone leaving the show?
Not anyone that people love.

    right because hallucinating isn’t a dream right? rIIght…. the more I hear about this, the more agitated I am becoming. WTF?

  • Kim

  • bostonbean

    Based on this news, I think it could be amnesia or something related to booth having his medical condition fixed. Maybe they do it after Booth is driven to take the next step as a what if I never get to actually be with Bones and then forgets about it after surgery or something. Then there will be plenty of tension still to go if Bones knows and Booth doesn’t remember.

    The “not someone we love” is refering to the interns that have been filling in every week. They are supposed to decide on one or two for next season.

    I’m with Bostonbean on this one. Amnesia related to his surgery/brain tumor.

  • Steph

    ‘It definitely changes the dynamic between the characters’
    ‘ There’s a cliffhanger and it has to do with Booth and Brennan relationship. It puts their relationship in jeopardy.’
    Again, oh I love drama, I am so excited for this finale, bring on the BB lovin’!

  • Michelle

    Am I the only one who doesn’t care? I broke up with Bones weeks ago. Shame too; it used to be really good. Now we have cartoon characters, brain tumors and “clever” sex. Ugh.
