I was originally going to post this yesterday but given that yesterday was April Fools day I did not want to do that in case anyone might have thought this was an April Fools prank. On late afternoon Thursday it was announced by People that Emily Deschanel who plays Dr. Temperance Brennan on Bones is pregnant with her first child. When I first heard it I was happy and excited for her. I found out about through her sister Zooey Deschanel on twitter where she excitedly tweeted about how Emily is pregnant and she (Zooey) can’t wait to be an aunt. So congratulations to the mommy and daddy (David Hornsby) to be on the amazing news.
After I said my congratulations via twitter to her sister I thought about what this could mean for Bones. With a disscussion with other Bones fans on twitter we thought of a few ways for them to work with or around the pregnancy. Here is some things that they could do.
1.) They could make Brennan pregnant as well with of course the father being Booth (David Boreanaz) If they do this they would not have to hide the pregnancy at all and Booth and Brennan fans would get what they have been asking for for a long time a Booth/Brennan hook-up. The only problem with this idea is that some people might think that it might be too soon for these characters to have a baby and plus right now they have a pregnancy story line with Hodgins (TJ Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin)
2.) Something else they could do is have her hide behind the corpses. They also like to have some of the most gruesome bodies so this is something I can definitely see them doing the only problem with this idea is how do they hide the belly when Brennan is out in the field with Booth.
3.) The third and final idea is that they write and film for season 7 right after filming the finale or depending on how far along she is after she gives birth (which will only work if she is due near July/August) If they start filming right after the finale then they won’t have to worry too much about when she starts to show and then they can film a few episodes and then wait to film more episodes until after she has given birth. The one problem with this idea is that the network has not officially renewed the show for its 7th season however many people are almost certain that it will be picked up they are just working right now on the negotiations and then it will most likely be announced that it has been renewed.
So there some ideas that they can do I just hope that this doesn’t mean that we will have a longer summer hiatus. If you have any thoughts/comments/questions let me know in the comments section
