'Bones' Says Goodbye After 12 Seasons: A Look Back at Brennan and Booth's 22 Best Episodes
At the heart of the long-running Fox procedural were Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz’s characters and their undeniable dynamic.
Bones signs off on Tuesday, after 12 seasons of crime solving, evidence examining, blood, guts and, most importantly, bones. But at the core of the long-running Fox procedural – the “heart of the matter,” if you will – was a partnership between forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz).
From their first episode together, Brennan and Booth’s dynamic was electric, and while the will-they-or-won’t-they of it all took nearly seven seasons to sort out (more if you count that they don’t actually tie the knot until season nine), their relationship kept fans hooked for all 245 episodes. We watched Brennan wrestle with her feelings as Booth looked for love, saw them lay it all on the line only to yank it back again, and finally, at long last, got to witness their happy ending. Two kids and countless hurdles later, they’re still going strong.
So, as we say goodbye to Booth and Brennan – and the rest of the beloved “Squint Squad” – here’s a look back at some of the pair’s very best hours together:
This is overall a very nice list but look, they listed the series finale as number nine, saying: “Details TBA to avoid spoilers, but just trust us on this one.”
