Less than 24 hours after HH and SN tweet about the premier...

... this news hits the media:

1. The season 7 premier is titled: “The Memories in the Shallow Grave.”

2. “The first episode will pick up with Brennan moving into the third trimester of her pregnancy” — just as her portrayer, Emily Deschanel, will be come fall — reveals exec producer Stephen Nathan. “Brennan is still the same strong character and shows no sign of slowing down. She attacks each case as she always has, although she must now deal with the realities of being pregnant.” Meaning…? “Small spaces are a challenge.”

TWEETS that made me laugh....

On Vacation

David Boreanaz has been obsessed with Twitter ever since he started his own account inearly April. So I was surprised to read his posting on June 15 that said,

"Congrates to Boston. See everyone next Season. I'm off line for awhile, enjoy the tweet world everyone."

I seriously wondered how long it would last. As of this evening, he's still off-line and so is Jamie! I'm proud of them for taking themselves out of the public for awhile... well, at least as much as possible. Apparently, the media still has their cameras on him. It's hard to be mad at them when I love the photos so much. Does that make me a bad person?

The following photos were found in the Boneyard on the Fox site.

And look where they were found! In Hawaii... very lucky!

Hart's opinion on the (Anti)Social Media & on FANS

Hart Hanson, Bones' showrunner, is pictured on the far left.

Hart Hanson has a lot of reasons to be grateful for Bones fans. They helped turn the show he created into an indisputable, if unassuming, hit: it was FOX’s number one scripted series for the 2010/11 season, and its spinoff, The Finder has been picked up for next season. But there's also a downside to success, especially on social media sites where some of the most passionate fans can be less than sociable...

Read more:

My thoughts: Hart Hanson and Stephen N. have hurt their reputations through Twitter and through interviews because of their negative views of fans. SN's comment about fans wanting porn almost makes me want to quit watching Bones. They are insulting even to respectful "super fans." What they don't understand is there are super fans that are not on the internet because they didn't grow up using it. Think about it. Even David's generation (mine) has been slow to use the internet.

FOX All Access

After seven seasons and 129 episodes in the can, the FOX hit series Bones continues to have a large fan base. Many have different reasons why they love the show, including the chemistry between the cast members, and the fun stories that each episode features.

Recently, we spoke to Emily Deschanel who plays Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, and asked her why she thinks the show is successful after all these seasons.



My opinion: I think the success of the show the first 5 seasons was because of the chemistry between the characters and the humor. It sadly was missing for most of season 6. I think many fans (on the internet or not) hung onto hope that it would return to being the show they fell in love with in the first place. (And yes, I blame the Hannah storyline. She caused the storyline to neccesitate the lack of chemistry of the team because the center didn’t hold. I liked the Cam and Sully storylines, but Hannah was a flop.)

I know a lot of fans want to dismiss the falling ratings to it being a holiday thing in December. If that makes people feel better, that's fine. But I disagree.

Since it was talked about in the summer, I was looking forward to The Doctor in the Photo. But I was one of many, many fans over at the Boneyard who had given up on the show and stopped watching. Some people quit before I did. Some people said they were quitting after TDitP. I skipped both episodes in December because I was getting depressed and that's not how I wanted to spend my weekend.

I came back in January and almost didn't return after the first episode, but the Bullet in the Brain preview brought me back and I'm glad I stuck with it after that. Since then, I've seen the ending of TDitP. I may watch all of it at a later date. The Twisted truck episode... It's unlikely I'll ever watch it.

What did those smiles mean? (Season 6 Finale)

TV Guide - Mega Buzz

Is it just me, or did Brennan seem shocked that Booth was happy about her being pregnant on Bones? — Josh

It's not just you. "There was a little something in that," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She's spent six years slowly becoming more and more in touch with a softer side of herself. And this was sort of one final emotional touch from Booth that says, 'You can enjoy this. You can accept this as the most wonderful thing in the world.'"

Click HERE to read it on TV Guide.


I usually don't like what SN has to say, but his answer was so... right. They've grown to trust each other, love each other and become better people together than they are apart. Booth has helped her tear down those walls. The last thing she wanted to learn was the happiness of, as Bones would say it, having progeny. She was insecure and he gave her assurance. As much as I wanted to see a kiss, I think the smiles and what they meant was the perfect ending to a tough season. It had me feeling so good that I decided to find some good photos that showed their journey. Please forgive me if a couple are out of order.


BuddyTV - Bones & Finder

Characters Returning and Replaced

Yes, the show is off the air. But it is not off of our minds yet, so there is still plenty to report. We don't know where Bones is going with that little pregnancy thing yet, unfortunately. Sorry. You'll just have to be satisfied with other pieces of Bones and Finder news.

Thanks to some information picked up from TVLine, we can report some casting rumors from both Bones and The Finder. Of course, thanks to the time of the year, none of this is definite. What can you do?

A Sidekick for Booth?

No, this does not mean any sort of replacement for Brennan. Bones has already gone down that road and beaten the fans over their heads with the journey. So that's not the issue here. Instead, Booth may be looking at a younger shadow over at the FBI.

Tina Majorino, who prominently played FBI Agent Genny Shaw during the season 6 episode, "The Hole in the Heart," may be back next fall. The Shaw character was fairly obviously open-ended, so there's no plot reason to not bring her back. And, according to a quote in TVLine, Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan would be fine with Majorino's return: "We love Tina and would love to have her back next year."

It's only fair, if you think about it. Brennan has her endless parade of rotating squinterns, so why doesn't Booth get help too? Granted, the character of Genny Shaw has thus far been pretty straight-laced. She's going to have to come up with a whole bunch of quirks if the character is going to recur on a show like Bones.

And a New Sidekick for Walter

Over on The Finder, we're definitely going to be have a new sidekick thrown into the mix. The co-star from the pilot episode (seen during Bones' season 6), Saffron Burrows will be replaced for the series itself.

Instead of an English bartender named Ike, we're going to have a teenager named Willa.
Willa will be around 17 years old and will have the same sort of criminal, shady past that Ike was supposed to have. This probably means an awful lot of lock-picking and other petty crimes, unless Willa has a past as a very young criminal mastermind.

The part has not yet been cast. As far as any rumors are concerned, neither of the other main Finder characters (Walter and Leo) will change for the series.

One fan's opinion - No Backtracking in Season 7


Bonesology - General Spoilers - What does everyone think?

This response was posted on June 6, 2011 by mommahurley. Click the link HERE.

Yep... I can say I feel strongly that there will be no backtracking next season... just a new kind of evolution. They are together...they consider themselves a real solid's just going to be about maneuvering through the waters of how exactly they will do all of it. How they will comingle their different approaches and viewpoints while respecting the other, and doing what they feel is right for their child. I think we will see less "making out" and more "loving". I think we will see challenges, misunderstandings (and by this I can envision those misunderstandings being more of, each trying to make the other happy without really quite understanding what that is that will make them happy...but some interesting negotiations in trying to figure that out!) and ultimately some really good chemestry!

I think the arrival and the gestation of this baby will be quite unlike Hodgela baby...because Brennan and Booth are so totally unlike Hodgela in every way. I can imagine Brennan wanting to work until the minute the baby arrives, and metaphorically squat in the woods as women have done for centuries... Booth would be aghast at this kind of chance taking, but he'd respect her wishes. I can also see something like the baby arriving suddenly and without warning and they having to deliver it themselves... Brennan coaching Booth along. the total experience for Booth that he did not get the first time! And so ultra "What's theirs is theirs".... Of course, I'm sure the writier have something in mind that we haven't even thought of... but one thing I feel certain of, is that there will be no backtracking...from this point forward...whatever happens...they are a couple!

You Changed Me by joolzac

Stephen Nathan - Season 7

WetPaint did a nice summary of Give Me My Remote's interview with Stephen Nathan.

Bones Season 7 Scoop:

The Pregnancy News will Already be Out

The only thing remotely as exciting as Brennan and Booth’s shocking season finale baby news is the thought of the Jeffersonian team’s reaction to it. But executive producer Stephen Nathan told Give Me My Remote that, sadly, the news will have has already been broken come fall.

“When we come back, people will know [about the pregnancy],” reveals Nathan. But this fast-forward in time is for good reason: Emily’s very real, growing baby bump during the summer hiatus. Nathan explains, “Emily being pregnant, she’s probably going to be showing a little bit more than she is now. There’s a realistic time jump and we’re still working out how we’re going to deal with that.” Fair enough.

At least there’s one thing we can definitely look forward to (and breathe easy about) with Bones Baby #2. Nathan promises that when it comes to the baby’s health, “it is not our intent at this point to recreate the Hodgins and Angela pregnancy” — the source of much anxiety for the two new parents and fans. “That was their pregnancy; this is going to be Booth and Brennan’s pregnancy. Totally unique,” he promises. “And when baby is being born it is also not going to be done in the same way.”

We’re not sure what that last part means. Will Brennan give birth in the lab? With a midwife? Without Booth? We shudder to think. We also can’t wait!

An Epic Before Bed (FanFiction) - eitoph

I totally fell in love with this fanfiction story and the writer gave me permission to link it. You definitely don't want to miss it! It is very, very unique.

Writer's Summary:

I've wanted to write a fic about the fact that Brennan actually wrote an entire book about some fantasy life where she was together with Booth for a long, long time and the way 6.22 and 6.23 unfolded has given me that opportunity. I don't want this to stand as another fic speculating as to what happened in those (in)famous missing moments because there are so many wonderful interpretations already, so I've been deliberately vague with some of those details.

No Conspiracy Theory - They are a couple. They are in love.

I really appreciate this answer SN gave in an interview. The ambiguity prior to this interview was killing me!

Mega Buzz 5/24/2011 - S7 Bones :)

From this article here.

Why did Bones not show Booth and Brennan's hookup? Are the writers going to reveal that Brennan actually got pregnant by using Booth's donated specimen instead? — Melanie
Executive producer Stephen Nathan likes your conspiracy theory. "Let's keep that one alive until next season," he says with a laugh. "Let's let people get all upset." In truth, Nathan says the writers were more concerned with feelings. "Whether or not we see them jumping around in the sack did not seem as important as the emotional acceptance of who they were to each other," Nathan says. "Moving into Season 7, [the pregnancy] cements their relationship and forces them to accept the fact that they are a couple, they are in love and that they will be moving forward together."
