Season finales are suppose to be exciting, suspenseful, happy, shocking, and maybe sad, but this was ridiculous. We felt all those emotions and more on the season eight finale of “Bones.”
We all knew Pelant was coming back (read the conference call with Emily Deschanel) and that his reign of terror would be worse than ever. We just never thought it would change (or at least hoped it wouldn’t) Booth and Brennan’s relationship in such a dramatic way.
After FBI agents were dying, we really saw Brennan’s emotions coming out like never before. She was so worried about Booth being the target that it made her re-evaluate her life with Booth. We all loved her little speech to him in her office: “You are not allowed to die – do you understand?”
Half way into the show was the scene that millions of fans have been waiting eight seasons for. At long last, the proposal, and she delivered it in the sweetest way we could ever have imagined, with her heart on her sleeve (and we all know how hard that is for her – you’ve come a long way, baby!).
Brennan to Booth: “I’ve been afraid, I’ve been stubborn and I’ve been in love … At this point, I wanna marry you … Will you marry me Booth?”
The tears in her eyes … OMG! Champagne corks popping, fans jumping up and down, elation at this moment (I was on Twitter)! Hallelujah!!
And then, about 20 minutes later, it all ended. Taken away in the blink of an eye. All I can say is that in the last scene, when Booth tells her they shouldn’t get married (because Pelant will kill innocent people – but Booth can’t tell Bones that), the look of shock and heartbreak on her face just about killed me.
Twitter erupted! Here are some of the tweets I read :
- “No, No, No.”
- “My heart is bleeding like Booth and Brennan’s heart.”
- “I’m not recording this show anymore.”
- “I’m mad at you guys for this.”
- “This is ridiculous – stupid.”
- “How could you!?”
And my favorite of all (I had to laugh): “OMG, I am now dead, buried and cremated.”
That pretty much said it for me. Okay, it is just a show and I am being dramatic, but, really? Really?
Finally, I just want to say that after millions of us (the fans) have faithfully watched eight seasons of “Bones,” and have gone on this long, crazy and wonderful journey with Brennan and Booth, could we please keep them happy?!
They have been happy for two seasons living together and raising Christine. Why do this to them now? It doesn’t make sense.
The most important thing is that we want our beloved characters, Brennan and Booth, to have a happy ending … and not have to wait until the show ends. I think they definitely deserve it, and so do we, the fans.
Okay, I’ve said my peace, and now I will wait patiently for season nine … and hope.
‘Bones’ fans, please leave a comment about your thoughts on the finale. Are you disappointed with the way it ended? Do you think they will eventually get married?
