Here's the text of the Tango article. Smile I wish they'd just somehow just put the whole conference call online, all these articles are taking on slightly different subtexts based on what parts they keep in and what parts they leave out. Like one article says we don't get the reaction we want from Booth, but in other articles, it's clear that Emily said it wouldn't be the reaction we'd expect from "Brennan" and never mentioned Booth's reaction. (To episode 9.)

Also ... at first I was thinking Hannah must accept Booth's proposal since Emily said things got more serious between them but now with this article, Emily points out several times that she's only just started reading the script for episode 13 ... and that's the proposal episode, so she wouldn't be talking about anything that comes after that since she's saying she doesn't know. I'm gonna quit trying to figure this stuff out at all. Lol.

Link is in the post above.

TV Tango recently participated in a conference call with Emily Deschanel of BONES. She dished about the Brennan-Booth-Hannah triangle, future storylines, and Thursday's episode. Plus, she talked about her upcoming directorial debut. BONES currently airs Thursdays at 8pm ET on FOX.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Question: In the next episode ["The Doctor in the Photo," airing Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010 at 8PM on FOX] Brennan feels a strong connection to the victim. How did it feel?


Emily Deschanel: It's hard because you have to go through all of the emtions that she's going through. At the same time it's refreshing because it's a very different episode than most episodes of the show. It's kind of strange. It's a different episode. It's one of my favorite scripts. I haven't seen the final cut yet, but hopefully it's one of my favorite episodes. It's very unique.

It's very personal to Brennan. She's facing her own mortality and also looking at her life, seeing what she would be leaving behind when she dies. You don't see that side of Brennan very often. She becomes very vulnerable trying to solve this case.

There is a woman who is killed and she's a doctor. When they started listing the qualities of this person, Brennan thinks they sound very familiar -- whether they're physical or personal qualities. And then even looking at the photograph of the person who died, it looks like Brennan when she looks at it. It's from Brennan's perspective, this episode. It's very interesting, but very terrifying for Brennan. Confusing.

Then she's visited by a night watchman, who we're not really sure if he exists or not in real life. Enrico Colantoni plays that part, who I've always loved as an actor; so it was fun to work with him.

It was definitely hard to go through that. I was in every single scene of this episode. There were absolutely no breaks whatsoever


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Does it ever get exhausting playing Brennan since your personality is so different than her's?



Emily Deschanel: Yes and no.

I think that Brennan has become a lot more open over the years. You get to see her dorky/quirky side at times, which is fun. I kind of hang on to those moments like that and try to incorporate thiings like that in every episode.

My favorite thing about people in general is that they have contradictions, and Brennan is no exception to that rule. I love exploring the contradictions of her character.

I'm an actor, too; so playing a character very different from myself is one of the best things to happen to me. Especially in a television series, so many times people are hired to play something very close to who they are in real life. It's a wonderful opportunity to play this character who is very different.

I can't say that I don't possess some qualities that are similar or sometimes I don't remind myself of her when I play a real nerd -- and I say that in the most affectionate way. I'm very different. I love the fact that I'm different from the character.

It's true sometimes, especially when you're doing certain episodes, you take it home a little bit with you. I have tried to make boundaries for myself where I leave work at work. If I have lines to learn. I do all my acting work on the weekends, then I learn my lines the day before. If there's any work that needs to be done the next day, I do it at work. I don't leave work until I finish that. I don't like to take work home with me. That means staying late even after working 15 hours. I'll stay late an hour or two just to make sure I get everything right.

I try to set those boundaries so I don' t take things home. That said, it does leak into your personal life sometimes.

That was a really answer to your question, but maybe I answered like 10 more.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: In the next episode, how did you prepare for the somber moment in the car with David?


Emily Deschanel: We always want to affect people emotionally. It's one of those scenes that you know is there, and you prepare for it, acting-wise. You know it's coming up. It's one of those things where it says that you're crying in the scene, and then you say "It's OK if I don't cry; I don't have to cry."

Then walking in, everyone's expecting that. There's a lot of pressure of that. It's one of those things as an actor, you kind of dread those scenes in a way because you'd rather it just not be written in and see if your emotions go to that place or not. At the same time it's good to have those markers as an actor to know where your breaking points are for the character -- where in the story are the low points.

I'm going backwards. In the scene Brennan has to face her own life because this women has died. She doesn't have much of a personal life. The only people who listed her missing are her people at work. She doesn't have friends. She kind of had some kind of romance with a guy, but nothing ever happened. No one really missed her. Isn't that every almost human's worst fear -- dying and no one misses you and no one notices? This affects Brennan greatly, and she starts relating to the character, believing that it's her. She starts seeing her own life and seeing that she made a mistake when she said "No" to Booth last year. She kind of goes out on a limb and says to Booth, "I'm here."

I don't know how much I should reveal. It forces Brennan into a place where she is bold and is aware of her feelings in a way she hasn't been before. It takes a huge, very strange experience for her to become aware of her feelings.

Hart [Hanson, series creator,] and I have always talked about how Brennan may have these feelings for Booth, but she's the last person to know. Here it takes a very strange experience for her to face her feelings and to see them.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Do you feel the episode ends on a positive note?

Emily Deschanel: I think so. I think that she realizes that she isn't that woman. She has friends. She has people who love her and she loves. She's not as extreme as this person.

It's always good to have those reminders in life. Who am I? What am I doing with my life? Am I working my whole life away and not spending time with people who are important? Am I not taking a chance on something that I'm going to regret on my death bed? If I die tomorrow, will I be happy with my life as it is right now?

Doing this show and doing fake death and Brennan's fake real death, you are aware of your own mortality. You can't help thinking about that.

You have to become bold in your life, and take chances. I think that's what Brennan is doing. I think that's not a bad thing. I think that's a wonderful thing to make the most of our lives while we have it. We're not here that long.

Brennan took that chance. Whether or not it worked out or not is not an important as the fact that she did take that chance. I think it is a happy ending in that way -- even if it's hard and sad, but life is hard and sad at times. The whole point is we get through those times. She still has all those people in her life and she still has all those friends and those people who care about her. That's what really matters.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Question: Will Brennan be left with any lasting change after this episode?


Emily Deschanel: Brennan's the kind of person, who the closer she gets to opening her feelings, the more closed off she becomes. After that [episode] she becomes more closed off in a way. There is a reaction, but it may not be the reaction people want. She rarely is predictable in that way.

I think you'll see Brennan becoming more protected than she has been even, but at times she's open. It affects her, but it affects her in many different kinds of opposing ways that you'll see in episodes to come. We're still reading and shooting episodes to come, but we're only a few ahead.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Does the situation between Hannah and Booth get more serious?


Emily Deschanel: Yes, it actually does get more serious. That creates a whole situation for all of them.

One thing I love about this dynamic between Hannah and Booth and Brennan is that Hannah is not a bad person. So many times you see a character come in as a love triangle. The two leads -- people want them to get together -- you have to like her. That's not in order. [sounding like she knows she's being confusing]

Brennan certainly likes her and respects her. I think the conflicts -- there's a lot of internal conflicts rather than there being external conflicts. There's internal conflicts in Brennan because she loves Booth. She wants to be with Booth. Because she loves Booth, she wants him to be happy. Booth is happy with Hannah now, but that's really hard to see. She wants him to be happy because she cares for him, but she also sees that Hannah is a wonderful, smart, tough, cool, beautiful woman, and you can't really blame Booth for falling in love with her.

There's all these conflicting emotions, just within one character alone. I just love that. I think it's great to have conflict between characters and within characters, where no one's intending bad things. It's just life. It's just what happens. I've seen this happen in life so many times where there are feelings for people, but they don't feel the same way. I think it's a wonderful kind of push and pull -- a dance if you will -- between the characters. I really like that dynamic.

It does get more serious with Hannah.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Will Hannah ever find out what went down with Booth and Brennan last season?


Emily Deschanel: Yes she will.

It's going to be revealed in some way to Hannah about the situation with Brennan and Booth -- Brennan revealing her feelings. It creates a situation with Hannah and Brennan and their friendship. It's an interesting dynamic between these two that you don't see very often. It does definitely create some issues and conflict.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Will Booth doubt his decision about Hannah?


Emily Deschanel: It's hard for me to say. So far I haven't seen that yet, but I can't say it won't come. We're only a few [episodes] ahead of this episode. I don't want to speak for another character and what he's feeling while he's doing scenes, but in terms of the actual scripts I haven't seen that yet.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Question: Why do you think the show is doing so well?


Emily Deschanel: It's hard for me to say what the success is. It's hard for me to be objective about something I'm absolutely in the middle of right now.

When people come up to me and they're fans of the show, a lot of people say "It's the only show I can watch with my husband" or "It's the only show I can watch with my family" or "my wife." Everyone likes different things.

One of the qualities of our show that may have been a detriment at times and may have not made us the huge hit right away that some other shows have been is the fact that it's so many different things. We have science, forensics, we're solving crimes, but we also have humor and we have character and relationships, which are kind of the backbone of the whole show. You have episodes that are more poignant and mroe serious and then some that are more action-filled. You never know what you are going to get.

There are certain things that you know they will have -- relationships and those dynamics, great characters, witty dialogue. There's so many elements that different people are drawn to for different reasons.

Kathy Reichs has a huge, huge following of people reading her books. We had from the beginning, it helped us to (a) have that and (b) to have David Boreanaz and his incredible success. So many people are such huge fans of his from ANGEL and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. We had some fan base going in, and that may be why we've had such loyal fans. Certainly from the beginning people who followed us through so many different time slots

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: What kind of foundation did Kathy Reichs give to the series?

Emily Deschanel: So many people love her books. It was hard at the beginning because we had to explain that this Temperance Brennan was based on Kathy Reichs, not Temperance Brennan in the books, and it's only loosely based on Kathy Reichs. If you're a fan of the books, then you'll be a fan of the show. This Temperance Brennan is a different Temperance Brennan, but there are definitely similarities between the book and the show.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: How long do you want to go with the show? Is the show at its peak?


Emily Deschanel: It's such a good question. It's so hard to know. I wish I had that perspective.

It's something I don't really have control over. I have a contract for eight seasons; so I can't say "I'm done now." I'd rather not say "We're peaking, I'm done" because I'd be in trouble for breaking my contract. I'd rather just think we're going for at least eight seasons.

It's something as an actor that you only have a certain amount of control over. You look at certain shows that last for 10 years, and that's just incredible.

I can't believe we've been here for six seasons -- not because I don't believe in the show and I don't love it and I don't think it deserves the huge audience -- but there's so many wonderful shows that get canceled in the first season. There's so many wonderful shows that don't get picked up in the first place. I'm so lucky to be doing the show and the show I love doing and the character I have such affection for. I'm just incredibly lucky.

When we first started, I thought "Three seasons; that's the most." That's such a long time, and I'll be exhausted by then. I will be done and move on to other things. It's keeps going. I've never thought "Oh, we got picked up for another season, oh darnit. I wish that hadn't happened." I've ALWAYS been excited when we've been picked up for another season and I think that will continue.

But who knows. Maybe we'll go for 11 years, and maybe I'll be like "I'm done with this show, I'm sick of it." Right now I'm enjoying myself and loving it and counting my lucky stars.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Question: Will the case in this next episode make Brennan question her job again?


Emily Deschanel: Yeah, it does come up a bit, but not as much anymore.

Brennan realized when was away from it, how much she missed it. It's a small factor, but not a big one. She realizes that she's good at this and that she enjoys this. She loves solving crimes and she loves doing it with the team she does it with.

She loves seeing the results of her work immediately -- well, not always immediately. You can actually affect the world when you're solving crimes as opposed to identifying ancient remains. Sure it can impact science in such a huge way. Right now, you're solving a crime, you're putting people behind bars, you're stopping new crimes from happening and you're bringing some tiny bit of peace family members.

I think she likes being that person. I think she recognized that when she was away from it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Do you have any teasers about cases in future episodes?


Emily Deschanel: We have an episode about daredevil BMX bikers. We have an episode about people who are polygamists. We have an episode like that which seems to be very popular right now with different reality shows and BIG LOVE.

What did we just shoot? Sometimes I have no memory. The daredevils are in episode 13, and I'm on 12. What was 11?

Wait, we have one with The Grave Digger, which is action-packed. There's a sniper loose in DC, and David directs an episode about that which is a great, great fun action-packed episode. Just love the episode. That's a really exciting one.


The BMX daredevil biker episode which I'm just starting reading right now, and then there's the one I'm doing now. We're just a few ahead.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Does anything about Brennan still surprise you?


Emily Deschanel: [laughing] Yeah. I think I was surprised when she started to open up more.

A couple seasons ago, I just love the scene where she asked Sweets to help her learn facial expressions. She's kind of almost on the autistic spectrum -- almost Asbergery, not quite -- but has some characteristics that fit into that. She doesn't really understand how to read people's emotions. I love that she recognized that she didn't know how to do this and get better at it.

I loved the Jersey Shore episode. That surprised me. How much Brennan had studied this culture of the Guidos and how seriously she took it.

In a way, things surprise me and in a way they don't. Of course, she studied the Guidos. She takes it very seriously as an anthropological study. She gonna throw a guy the crap, doing a bodybuiding pose to scare someone away.

It's a lot of fun. Yes and no is my answer. I love so many of her qualities, especially when she's trying to grow as a person and open up.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Question: What advice to you have for young actors?

Emily Deschanel: Study acting. Do theatre. Do as many plays and different kind of characters as you possibly can. Stretch yourself as far as you can. Make it about the acting. So many people get caught up in your looks, the agents, and the business of it all and who you know. If you concentrate on the acting, I can't say that everything will fall into place because I know so many incredible actors who are struggling.

I heard someone say once that it's 95% perserverence and 5% talent. I think that's so true. Concentrate on the acting. That's all I can say. Concentrate on the acting.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Was it a relief to go back to case-of-the-week episodes after this next emotional episode?


Emily Deschanel: Absolutely. It was an exhausting episode physically. outside in the rain at night. I'm not saying "Poor me" in any way. I'm just saying it was a relief to come back and do episodes about sister wives and things like that.

Definitely a relief. We have an episode coming up, which I was supposed to direct. It was reported that I was supposed to direct an episode about a wedding planner, which I'm excited to read, but I'm not directing that episode after all. Because it turned out they'd have to write me out of the episode before so much and the episode I'm directing so much that I'd be so light in these episodes.

It turns out that we're now after IDOL, and we didn't know that. It's just a wonderful opportunity to be after AMERICAN IDOL. They were worried that if we had two episodes very soon -- early on after IDOL -- in which I'm just not very present in the show, then it might take away. I don't know if that's true. Maybe the audience would rather I not be in the show that much, but Hart was concerned about it.

We are talking about moving me to the end of the season.

That was just one thing I wanted to clear up because it was reported that I was directing this episode, but I am not directing that episode.

It's nice to do -- fluffy may not be the right word for it -- but it's on the fluffier side of things. Doing an episode about a wedding planner and things like that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: What kind of extra work did you need to do for this episode?

Emily Deschanel: I don't know. I hate talking about the acting process. It's a lot of creating, thoughts and memories and all that. When it's such a heavy episode, you're facing such serious emotions as a character. It's just more demanding; so it takes longer to do. You just work harder on that. It's stuff I love. I love doing that. I like the challenge. I don't think I could do it every single episode. Maybe I'd get used to it. It demands a lot.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question: Does directing demand even more from you?


Emily Deschanel: Yes, absolutely.

So much has happened in my life recently. There's a lot going on. In a way I was disappointed that we had to move the directing episode, but I was also relieved. I'm going to be able to take some time in the Christmas break to do things I want to do, spending time with family and stuff and not having to work as much because I'd be preparing while I was on Christmas break if I was directing the next episode.

Since I'm not doing that, I can spend time preparing but in advance whatever I can about directing and anticipating things I'll want and need for the episode.

I probably won't know entirely what it will demand of me physically and mentally and everything until I get to the point where I'm actually directing. I think it's one of those kinds of jobs that you can't completely prepare for until you're in it -- certainly until you get the script for the actual episode.

I'm sure it's going to demand a lot of me. I'm excited for that challenge, but I'm also happy to push it a little longer because there's a lot going on right now.

I completely agree with you. I understand the fact that each journalist wants to be the first one to have the information out, and Twitter allows that now. Of course it can't be very detailed. But then, why just having a few quotes with a lot of interpretation when they write the article? I get that they can't always have the full transcript because it is too long, but this mislead the reader.

As for the plot, yes it's easy to mix the timeline with the various information. Something can be said by HH or SN because they are working on episode 17 for example, but the actors only have the script for episode 13 as right now. As producers, Emily and David know a little more about what's going to happen, but roughly, not every detail. And also, things can be modified in between without them knowing when they do interviews.

Since Emily won't direct episode 14 as they said they wanted Brennan to be more in it, I wonder how much they will rewrite it. Angela was with Booth, but it would seem reasonable to assume that Brennan, at least in part, will be the one with Booth now. And though some lines could be the same, I guess everything can't be switched.

Eonline, Brennan & Hannah BFFs

Link: http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/watch_with_kristin/b214676_spoiler_chat_hope_finnchel_doom_dexter.html#ixzz17OYOHrXT

@danadoestv (via Twitter): Any progress on Brennan and Booth finally getting together on Bones?
There's good news and bad news in Thursday's episode of Bones. The good news is this particular investigation hits close to home and Brennan realizes she regrets not giving Booth a chance. Emotional revelations are good, right? The bad news is Booth still has that pesky serious girlfriend hanging around. Don't worry, it's not all tears and heartbreak, Brennan has an awesome new BFF to lean on.



Just to put in my two cents, this is Kristin. She's is notoriously wrong and blows things out of proportion or just plain messes the spoilers up. So, I'm not this means that Hannah/Brennan will really be getting that much closer, it contradicts a lot of what we've read already too.

Yes, you're right, always be careful with journalists, some can really make you believe things that are not there at all. I don't understand them.
But going to eonline, I don't see Kristin mentioning Brennan and Hannah being BFF, she just says "Brennan has an awesome new BFF to lean on" (if I'm not wrong, it's a person having a blog about Bones who wrote Hannah as BFF in her headline).
My first thought about the nice BFF is that night guard who is there when Brennan goes back to the Jeffersonian late at night and they talk together.

Emily's conference call - thisismypacifier.com

Post  BonesFanFr on Thu Dec 09, 2010 7:15 pm

Another take, this one has a few more details from what Emily said!

http://www.tvismypacifier.com/?p=10925

I recently got the honour of speaking with the charming and beautiful Emily Deschanel who plays Dr. Emily Brennan on the FOX hit show, Bones. Emily was discussing the upcoming episode that is centered on Dr. Brennan and her reactions to a case that reminds her of her own life. Let’s take a look at what Emily had to say about this episode, playing Dr. Brennan, and life in general. **Warning this interview may include slight spoilers about tonight’s (December 9th) episode.**
I was lucky enough to get the first questions in, and I’ll be sure to include a few interesting ones from my fellow journalists.

Megan – In the next episode, Brennan feels a strong connection to the victim of the case. How was it play Brennan in such a vulnerable light?

E. Deschanel- It’s hard because you have to go through all the emotions that she’s going through. At the same time, it’s refreshing because it’s a very different episode than most episodes of the show. It’s kind of strange. It’s a different episode. I think it was one of my favorite scripts. I haven’t seen the actual final cut yet, but hopefully, it’ll be one of my favorite episodes.
It’s just very unique. It’s very personal to Brennan. She is facing her own mortality and also looking at her life and seeing what she would be leaving behind when she dies. You don’t see that side of Brennan very often. She becomes very vulnerable trying to solve this case, which she believes to be— If people haven’t seen or don’t know basically, there is a woman who is killed. She’s a doctor. When they started listing the different qualities of this person, Brennan thinks is sounds very familiar, whether they’re physical or personal qualities. Then, even looking at the photograph of the person who died, it looks like Brennan when she looks at it. It’s from Brennan’s perspective, this episode.
It’s very interesting, but kind of terrifying for Brennan and confusing. She’s visited by a night watchman who we’re not even sure if he exists or not in real life. Enrico Colantoni played that part, who I’ve always loved as an actor, so it was a lot of fun to work with him.
Yes, it was definitely hard to go through that because I was also in every single scene of this episode. There were absolutely no breaks whatsoever.

Note from Me: Emily’s performance in this episode is Emmy worthy, by far one of my favorite episodes. Enrico Colantoni is one of my favorite actors, especially since his days on Veronica Mars and he was amazing in his role. If you can help it don’t miss this episode!

Megan- Speaking of Brennan as a whole, does it ever get exhausting playing Brennan, because she’s so serious and factual? You, yourself always come across as so lively. Is it hard to be in that state of mind a lot?

E. Deschanel- Yes and no. I think that Brennan has become a lot more open over the years and you get to see her kind of dorky, quirky side at times, which is fun. I hang on to those moments and try to incorporate things like that in every episode. My favorite things about people in general is that they have contradictions. Brennan is no exception to that rule. I love exploring the contradictions of her character and all of that.
I’m an actor, too. So playing a character who’s very different from myself is one of the best things to happen to me, especially in a television series. So many times people are hired to play something very close to who they are in real life. It’s a wonderful opportunity to play this character who is very different. I can’t say that I don’t possess some qualities that are similar or that sometimes I don’t remind myself of her, when I behave like a real, I don’t know, nerd—I say that in the most affectionate way—but, I’m very different. So, I love the fact that I am different from the character. But, that’s true sometimes, especially when you’re doing certain episodes. You come home and you take it home a little bit with you.
I have tried to make boundaries for myself where I leave work at work. If I have lines to learn, I do all my acting work on the weekends and then I learn my lines the day before. If there’s any work that needs to be done before the next day, I do it at work. I don’t leave work until I’ve finished that. I don’t like to take work home with me. That means staying late even after working 15 hours. I’ll stay late an hour or two just to make sure I get everything right. I try to set those boundaries so I don’t take things home, but that said, it does leak into your personal life sometimes. I think that was a really long answer to your question, but maybe I answered like ten more.

In this episode, you have a fantastic scene with David in the car when you’re talking to him. It’s a really smbre moment. Can you tell us a little bit about what it was like filming that emotionally charged scene? That actually had me crying, too.

E. Deschanel- Oh, that’s—I shouldn’t say, “That’s nice. I’m glad you cried,” but I guess we always want to affect people emotionally. Yes, it was one of those scenes that you know is there. You prepare for it acting-wise. You know it’s coming up, but it’s one of those things that says that you’re crying in the scene. Then, you’re like, “It’s okay if I don’t cry. I don’t have to cry,” but then walking in, everyone’s expecting that. So, there’s a lot of pressure of that.
It’s one of those things as an actor that you kind of dread those scenes in a way, because you’d rather it just not be written in and see if your emotions go to that place or not. But, at the same time, it’s good to have those markers as an actor to know where your breaking points are for the character, and where in the story is the low point. I’m going backwards.
But, basically the scene, Brennan has to face her own life because this woman has died, she doesn’t have much of a personal life. The only people who listed her missing are her people at work. She doesn’t have friends. She had some kind of romance with a guy. Nothing ever happened. No one really missed her. I think isn’t that almost every human’s worst fears, dying and no one misses you and no one notices. So, this affects Brennan greatly. She starts relating to the character, believing that it’s her. She starts seeing her own life and seeing that she made a mistake when she said no to Booth last year. She goes out on a limb and says to Booth, “I’m here.”
I don’t know how much people want to reveal before the episode airs and I don’t know how much I should reveal, but I know that some of you guys must have seen it. It forces Brennan into a place where she is bold and kind of aware of her feelings in a way that she hasn’t been before. It takes a huge, very strange experience for her to become aware of her feelings.

It goes to that really sombre place, but do you feel that sort of ends on a positive note on this?

E. Deschanel- I think that she realizes that she isn’t that woman. She has friends. She has people who love her and she loves. She’s not as extreme as this person, but it’s always good to have those reminders in life to see Who am I?. What am I doing with my life? Am I working my whole life away? Am I not spending time with people that are important? Am I not taking a chance on something that I’m going to regret on my deathbed? If I die tomorrow, would I be happy with my life as it is right now?
I think one thing that I’ll say doing the show, being around death all the time or fake death or whatever—in Brennan’s … real death—you are aware of your mortality. You can’t help thinking about that. I think that as a result you have to become more bold in your life and take chances. I think that’s what Brennan is doing.
That’s not a bad thing. I think that’s a wonderful thing to make the most of our lives while we have it. We’re not here for that long. I think that Brennan took that chance. Whether it worked out or not doesn’t matter as much as the fact that she did take that chance. I think that it is a happy ending in that way, even if it is hard and sad, but life is hard and sad at times. The whole point is we get through those times. I think that she still has all those people in her life and she still has all those friends and people who care about her. That’s what really matters.

Do you think we’ll be left with any lasting changes for Brennan after this episode?

E. Deschanel- I think you’ll see both. Honestly, Brennan’s the kind of person that the closer she gets to opening up her feelings, the more closed off she becomes. After that, I think she becomes even more closed off in a way. So, there is a reaction, but it may not be the reaction people want from Brennan. She rarely is predictable in that way. I think you’ll see Brennan becoming more protected than she has been even. Then at times, she’s open. I think it affects her, but I think it affects her in many different kind of opposing ways and you’ll see in episodes to come. We’re still reading and shooting episodes that are coming up, so we’re only few ahead of this one.

Does the relationship between Hannah and Booth, get more serious as it goes on?

E. Deschanel- Yes, it actually does get more serious. That creates the whole situation for all of them. One thing I must say I love about this dynamic between Hannah and Booth and Brennan is that— Hannah is not a bad person. So many times, you see a character come in as a love triangle. The two leads, people want them to get together. I think that you have to like her and—that’s not an order, but I feel like she’s a nice person—Brennan certainly likes her and respects her.
I think there’s a lot of internal conflicts rather than there being external conflicts. There’s internal conflicts in Brennan because she loves Booth. She wants to be with Booth. She’s realizing this, but because she loves Booth, she wants him to be happy. Booth is happy with Hannah now and that’s really hard to see. But, then she also wants him to be happy because she loves him and she cares for him. Then, she also sees that Hannah is a wonderful, smart, tough, cool, beautiful woman. You can’t really blame Booth for falling in love with her. There’s all these conflicting emotions just within one character alone. I just love that.
I think it’s great to have conflict between characters, within characters where no one’s intending bad things. It’s just life. It’s just what happens. I’ve seen this happen in life so many times, where there’s feelings for people and they don’t feel the same way, but then you can’t blame them. I think it’s a wonderful kind of push and pull and dance, if you will, between the characters. I really like that dynamic, but it does get more serious with Hannah.

Note from Me: I hate that Hannah isn’t a horrible witch. I would love to hate her but I can’t and that makes me upset. There is no way I want her and Booth to end up together long term, but in the meantime it makes for some interesting story lines for Booth and Brennan. What are your thoughts?

I wanted to ask about the show’s run. Six years is a really good run. Why do you think the show is doing so well? I was also curious about Kathy Reichs and the foundation that she gave the series.

E. Deschanel- Wow, it’s hard for me to say what the success is and it’s hard for me to be objective about something that I’m absolutely in the middle of right now. But, when people come up to me and are fans of the show, a lot of people say, “It’s the only show that I can watch with my husband,” or, “It’s the only show I can watch with my family, or my wife.” Everyone likes different things. I think that one of the qualities of our show that may have been a detriment at times and may have not made us the huge hit right away that some other shows have been is the fact that it’s so many different things.
I mean we have science, we have forensics, we are solving crimes, but we also have humor. We have character relationships, which kind of are the backbone of the whole show. Then, you have episodes that are more poignant and more serious and some that are more action filled. You kind of never know what you’re going to get. There are certain things that you know they will have: the relationships, there’s those dynamics, great characters, witty dialog, and stuff like that. But, there are so many elements that different people are drawn to for different reasons.
As for Kathy Reichs, she has a huge, huge following of people reading her books. We had, from the beginning, I think it really helped us to (a) have that, and also have David Boreanaz, his incredible success. So many people are such huge fans of his from Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So we had some fan base going in. That may be why we’ve had such loyal fans, certainly, from the beginning who followed us from so many different time slots.
Absolutely, Kathy Reichs is a very successful writer. So many people love her books; love the Temperance Brennan books. I think that it was hard at the beginning because we had to explain that this Temperance Brennan is actually based on Kathy Reichs, not Temperance Brennan in the book. It’s only loosely based on Kathy Reichs. But, at the same time, if you’re a fan of the books, I think you’ll be a fan of the show because this Temperance Brennan is a different Temperance Brennan, but there are definitely similarities from the book to the show.

How long do you want to go with this show? Do you feel like you’re peaking?

E. Deschanel- It’s such a good question. It’s so hard to know. I wish I had that perspective. It’s something that I don’t really have control over. At this point, I have a contract for eight seasons, so I can’t say, “I’m done now.” I’d rather not say, “We’re peaking, I’m done,” because I’d be in trouble for breaking my contract. I’d rather just think that we’re going for at least eight seasons or something.
No, it’s something as an actor that you only have a certain amount of control over. You look at certain shows that last for ten years and that is just incredible. I just can’t believe we’ve been here for six seasons. Not because I don’t believe in the show and I don’t love it and I don’ think it deserves a huge audience. It’s just that there’s so many wonderful shows that get cancelled in the first season. There’s so many wonderful shows that don’t get picked up in the first place. I know I’m so lucky to be doing the show; the show that I love doing and a character that I have such affection for. I’m just incredibly lucky.
But, I love doing this show. When I started, I thought, “Three seasons. That’s the most. That’s such a long time. I’ll be exhausted by then. I will be done and then I can move on to other things.” Then, it keeps going, but I’ve never thought, “Oh, we got picked up for another season. Oh, darn it. I wish that hadn’t happened.” I’ve always been excited when we’ve been picked up for another season. I think that will continue, but who knows. Maybe, talk to me—we’ll go for 11 years and I might be like, “I’m done with the show. I’m sick of it,” but right now I’m still enjoying myself and loving it, and just counting my lucky stars.

I know that you said earlier that you’re only a few episodes ahead of yourself in terms of the production. But, are there teasers that you can give us about any of the cases that are coming up?

E. Deschanel- Sure. We have an episode about daredevil BMX bikers. We have an episode about people who are polygamists – one polygamist who has many wives. So, you have an episode like that which seems to be very popular right now with different reality shows, the Big Love show, and all of that. That’s interesting.
What did we just shoot? Sometimes I have no memory for a while, just before. We have one with the gravedigger, which is action packed. There’s a sniper loose in DC. David directs an episode about that, which is great, great fun, action packed episode. Just love that episode. That’s a really exciting one. Then, we have the BMX biker daredevil episode, which I’m just starting reading right now. Then there’s the one we’re doing now about …. Those are some ideas of a few ahead. We’re just like a few ahead.

Playing this character for as long as you have, does anything about her still surprise you?

E. Deschanel- Yes, yes. I think I was surprised as she started to open up more. What I just love, this was a couple of seasons ago, but there was a scene where she asked Sweets to help her learn facial expressions because she’s kind almost on the autistic spectrum, almost Aspbergery—not quite, but has some characteristics that fit into that. She doesn’t really understand how to read peoples’ emotions. I just love that she recognized that she didn’t know how to do this and she wanted to get better at it. I just love that.
I loved the Jersey Shore episode. That surprised me just how much Brennan had studied this culture of the guidos and how seriously she took it. In a way, things surprise me and in a way, things don’t. Because of course, she studied these guidos. Of course, she takes it very seriously as an anthropological study. She’s going to throw a guy the crab, doing a body building pose to scare someone away. It’s a lot of fun.
Yes and no I guess is my answer. I love so many of her qualities, especially when she’s trying to grow as a person and open up.

After this emotional episode, how nice was it to go back to more case of the week? Was it a relief?

E. Deschanel- Absolutely, absolutely. It took a lot out of me. It was an exhausting episode, physically, outside in the rain at night, all of that stuff. I’m not saying poor me in any way, but I’m just saying it was a relief to come back to doing these episodes about things like that. Definitely a relief, definitely a relief.
I didn’t mention this. We have an episode coming up, which I was supposed to direct. It was reported that I was supposed to direct an episode about a wedding planner, which I’m excited to read. But, I’m not directing that episode after all because it turned out they’d have to write me out of the episode before it so much and the episode that I was directing so much that I’d be so light in the episode that it turned out that we’re now after Idol and we didn’t know that. It’s just a wonderful opportunity to be after American Idol.
To do that episode, they were worried if we had two episodes very soon early on after Idol in which I’m just not very present in the show that it might take away. I don’t know if that’s true, but they were. Maybe the audience would rather me not be in the show that much, but Hart was concerned about it. So, we are talking about moving me to the end of the season. Sorry, that was one thing I just wanted to clear up, because it was reported that I am directing this episode and I am not directing that episode.
But, yes, it’s nice to do a more—fluffy may not be exactly the right word for it, but it’s on the fluffier side of things, doing an episode about a wedding planner, things like that.

That’s all for this interview, Emily was truly fantastic and so open. I always enjoy chatting with anyone from the cast of Bones because they are always down to earth and they honestly love what they do. I hope that the show continues on the path that it’s been on because it’s only getting better and better, and I for one can’t wait to see more!

Tune into FOX every Thursday at 8/7 c to watch Bones, you know you won’t be disappointed!

Spoilers for "The Bullet in the Brain" aired Jan 27th

Post  BonesFanFr on Wed Jan 12, 2011 6:27 am

* http://screenrant.com/bones-preview-gravedigger-story-aco-95923/

One week after Bones returns from its winter hiatus on January 20th, David Boreanaz will be jumping back into the director’s chair for “The Bullet in the Brain” – the conclusion of the multi-season Gravedigger storyline.

The episode, which airs on January 27th, will kick-off a multi-episode arc which begins with the Gravedigger, Heather Taft, being gunned down by a unknown sniper while being transported to court. As the title suggests, the murder of the Gravedigger will be Brennan’s newest case to solve.

For a series that is known to show some of the most graphic representations of decaying human bodies on television, the filming of Gravedigger’s murder proved to be more complicated. Despite the unsettling moments that come from seeing a wonderfully created faux dead body, the filming of a sniper death scene has to he handled more delicately.

As David Boreanaz acknowledges:

“This one was challenging in terms of what you are allowed to show. You want to make this show as dynamic as possible.”

Unfortunately, the quick demise of Bones’ most prolific nemesis does not mean that the Jeffersonian team will now be safe from harm. As this pivotal episode progresses, we learn that it was elite sniper Jacob Ripkin Broadsky, played by Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy), who ended the life of the murderous Heather Taft.

*** Bones Spoilers Begin ***
Of course, no story-arc ending episode of Bones plays out with that much simplicity. Upon figuring out the identity of serial killer Jacob Ripkin Broadsky, the master marksman literally turns his sights on Booth, Brennan and the rest of the Jeffersonian crew. As things begin to heat up between our familiar team and the show’s newest serial killer, one of the beloved squinterns unfortunately becomes his next victim.
