[B] squint in disguise

Ask Ausiello: 7.02 scoop

Question: Any scoop on Bones? —Mahika
I’m a little behind on my Bones screeners — in case you didn’t hear, I visited the Smurfs’ homeland last week — but TVLine’s Matt Mitovich just watched Episode 2 and filed this report exclusively to AA:

“As much fun as the season opener is, I have to say that Episode 2 is even better. For one, the case of the week is much stronger and more compelling (and much more icky-gooey). Plus, you’ve got the addition of Luke Kleintank as Finn Abernathy, a good ol’ boy squintern whose scientific brilliance — a seeming clash with his omnipresent baseball cap and shaggy hair — drops even Brennan’s jaw, and who proves to be a very fun foil for Hodgins. Then, add on top of that even more sweet moments between Bones and Booth? Simply said, this pregnancy twist is the best thing to happen to the show in recent years. What we’re looking at is perhaps Bones at its very best. Oh, and did I mention the part where Temp discovers that years ago she helped prevent a murder? Cool stuff.”

[B] We're the center.

TVGuide: First Look at Bones' Season 7 Premiere


In this exclusive sneak-peek image, a glowing Bones (Emily Deschanel) shares a touching moment with Booth (David Boreanaz) as they prepare for a new day. "Season 7 starts with Brennan and Booth as many fans have always wanted them — together and expecting," says executive producer Stephen Nathan.

But now that they're officially a couple, will they have the same dynamic? "Is their relationship different? Sometimes yes, sometimes no," says Nathan. "The conflict and confusion won't go away. It's just topped off with some physical contact. And, of course, murder." Of course!

Bones returns Thursday, November 3, at 9/8c on Fox.
