The biggest problem we faced going into Season 7 was how to get these two people together while keeping the integrity of Brennan and Booth’s characters in tact.
But [series creator] Hart [Hanson] and I were leaning toward this independently of that.
So we lose nothing but gain a amount with the reality that they are now together sharing the biggest thing in their lives.
TVLINE | So this isn’t just two co-workers having a baby together after a one-night stand. They are as much of a full-fledged couple as two unique and difficult people can be. Booth is somebody who’s always wanted to get married. The tension that has existed in their relationship up to this point will continue.
But there was a sly and welcome hint at the end that he’ll start dating Sara Rue’s Karen.
Don’t miss Anna’s recaps of the Season 7 premiere, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4, and episode 5.
*********Spoilers********* Closing in on February Sweeps, the fact that this episode introduces a new foe for our heroes doesn’t mean the relationships get swept under the rug.
On the contrary, there’s a lot of ground to cover, making every relationship scene count.
They’re now sharing something and they’re committed to each other in a way they always wanted and there’s no way to avoid that. When we open in Season 7, it’s not Ozzie and Harriet. We will probably pick up a couple of months down the line.
They have to deal with the reality that they’ve gotten what they secretly wished for. It’s not a perfect little domestic family situation. TVLINE | This is a very unconventional path to take.
