For nearly five years, “Bones” fans have been wondering if and when Booth and Brennan will finally hook up.
But in light of creator Hart Hanson‘s recent comments to KTV that the upcoming 100th episode “changes everything” and places “everything in a context,” we got to thinking …
What if the upcoming 100th episode flashback reveals that Booth and Brennan have already hooked up? Like, during their first case, a year before the pilot. Have we been asking the wrong questions about this pair all along?
“Well, you can never ask enough questions,” Hart assured us when we posed this theory.
And then, as you’ll see in the clip below, he fidgeted for a few seconds while deciding what to say next.
“You’re asking me in the most blatant way anyone’s asked, so I don’t have a prepared answer,” he shared. “This is what I would say to you: I think you should watch the episode and then ask me that question.”
While we were slightly worried that this means the episode itself will be vague on what happened between Booth and Brennan all those years ago, Hart assured us that isn’t the case.
“The 100th episode is not vague, there’s no ambiguity to it,” he promised. “What happened, happened. I’m not saying what [you think] happened, happened. I’m saying what happens in the show happened. If the fans are shrieking at me after this, well, then I just deserve it.”
So the expectation is there will be shrieking after the episode?
“The goal is not shrieking,” he said. “The goal is–no, I’m not going to tell you what the goal is… Really what I should say is just wait and watch. Just wait and watch, and then we can discuss it.”
What do you guys think? Are we reading too much into things?
