Emily Deschanel & David Boreanaz Say 'Everything Changes' in 'Bones' Season 9 Finale
With only two episodes left in Season 9 of 'Bones, 'TVRage was lucky enough to participate in a conference call with David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, where the duo opened up about the remaining episodes.
The two, who play Seeley Booth (Boreanaz) and Temperance Brennan aka "Bones" (Deschanel) on the series, were even more happy and giddy together than their characters on-screen, taking every opportunity to laugh and compliment one another.
When asked about directing the finale, Boreanaz told reporters, "It's always a challenge to take on something like the season finale." He cited the exhaustion and worn patience that makes dealing with cast and crew a little more difficult, but there was still the story to wrap up. "There was so much information that we kind of had to gather up and put out there in one 45-minute hit."
The challenges didn't hit him too hard though, and Deschanel praised his abilities. "I love being directed by David, and I'm not just saying that... I think David is just really talented as a director as well as an actor. He has a whole other career, if he wants it, when this thing's over." She continued, "He's great technically, he's good with actors, he's decisive, he knows what he wants...There's a lot of elements and he does it all with ease, and I love working with him."
Fans of the show saw the friction that was created over the ghost killer. Apparently that was just an appetizer. Deschanel revealed a little about the finale, "There's a huge thing that happens at the end of this episode...It changes everything. Not only Booth and Brennan, between them, but also between kind of everything, Booth's job, possibly Brennan's job -- I mean everything."
Boreanaz elaborated a little more, but was careful not to cross the spoiler line, "We find out that there's more to it than what meets the eye and they've been kind of working underground for a while... Through conspiracy theories or just, you know, stuff that they've been hiding in the FBI or through the Jeffersonian, but it all kind of comes to a head and it's pretty detrimental at the end."
They even took turns praising each other for their work in the finale. Boreanaz started it by saying, "And I've got to say... Emily does such an amazing job. You know, it's tough enough that she has such grounded language that she has to learn...Her dialogue is so rich and thick and heavy as far as the technical aspect of it. She's describing a body. It just blows my mind away.... This last episode is very emotional...Just extremely amazing to watch...She's very emotional in her character and she not only kept it together but she elevated her game. You know, I'm just so proud of her for that because it was a hard, hard shoot to do, and it took a toll on everybody."
She continued, laughing, when she spoke more to him than us, "Thanks, David. So sweet. David has some amazing stuff in this episode. He is awesome in it too. I have not seen the final product, but I can't wait to see it. Thanks, David. See, he's a great director. He gives compliments."
Before the finale we still have this week's episode: a Sweets-centric (John Francis Daley) one involving drag queens and a new squintern (Laura Spencer).
Boreanaz passed his chance to speak on the matter noting, "When it comes to the squints, I rely on my main Bones, my main girl." Deschanel took a second to figure out what to say about the rookie squint, "Brennan thinks that the new squintern is very good at her job except she does not care for the way she guesses about things and makes assumptions. She really rubs Sweets the wrong way, but then that attention might turn into a romantic way."
Bones airs Mondays at 8/7c on FOX, with the finale airing Monday, May 19.
Why on earth do you have to be so analytical ? Can't you take entertainment for what it is ? Simply be entertained, amused ? Not everything needs to provoke deep thoughts about the universe, god and existence (exag.). Sometimes an apple is just an apple. Why do they have to stick exactly to the books ? After all, it's not a 1:1 translation. It's based on the books. There is a big diffrence if you are able to pick up on it. I don't give a rats ass about how close the show is to the books. I haven't read them and never will. I enjoy the show for what it is: entertainment that puts a smile on my face. If media content can make me smile, in my book, that's a good thing. If you hate smiling, well .. your world must suck. Think about that, will 'ya.

Loora, What parallel universe Bones have you been watching? It frequently advertises itself as a show that renewed interest in Science for young people and Girls in particular. It is a CSI rip off and totally unlike the books. One of the issues with the show is the way they moved Brennan from the ass kicking Autistic of the first season to Booth's asskisser. Possibly Bones has devolved from the serious crime show of the first five or six seasons into the comedic farce you perceive. I stopped watching after they bought the run down house. I could not stomach how bad it had become. Plus babies are only added to a show when the writers have run out of ideas, recycled to begin with,and need more regurgitated stale plot points.

Nah, Bones ist amusing, light entertainment. Always puts a smile on your face, no matter how bad your day was. Bones isn't a crime show that needs (or wants) to be taken seriously. Same as The Closer that has the same "make you smile" element to it. Not many shows can pull this off as good as Bones. So, as far as I am concerned, they can keep doing this for another 20 years if they want to :)

At no point were the words" isn't it time to be cancelled" uttered? Long past it's sell by date.
