[B] I got you baby.

(no subject)

Question: I have a Bones Q. Does Brennan really have an ultrasound where she finds out the gender of the baby by herself and without informing Booth until after the fact? How could she take that moment away from him? She knows what being a dad means to him. I swear the writers want me to hate Brennan. She does this? Seriously heartless. —Danni
Ausiello:
Simmer yourself. It’s more complicated than that. Besides, it all leads to one of my favorite B&B moments ever — one that would not have been possible had Booth been on hand for the initial reveal.

Question: I’m counting down the days until Bones returns on Nov. 3. Anything you can give me to tide me over? —Lauryn
Ausiello:
There’s a scene in Episode 6 (a.k.a. the midseason finale) that was so revolting even exec producer Stephen Nathan couldn’t stomach it. And it takes a lot to gross out that guy. As a result, it was cut from the episode. “It was the body of a victim that was murdered,” he explains. “There was one angle where it looked like something from a medical journal. Totally gross. Not like our entertainingly revolting remains. It just looked too real. But never fear, there is much to close your eyes and shriek about in the episode.”

Question: I read somewhere that we would meet Booth’s father via flashback on Bones this season. Any idea who’s playing him? —Dawn
Ausiello:
An actor by the name of No One. The flashback sequence was scrapped. “It wasn’t needed,” explains exec producer Stephen Nathan of the sequence, which was slated for this season’s Booth-centric fourth episode (which features the return of Ralph Waite as his Grandpa). “David’s performance was powerful enough [on its own]. It’s a very dramatic episode for him, and he more than rises to the occasion.”
