Season 6 of BONES ended on an amazing note, so it’s not surprising that the anticipation for BONES – Season 7 is incredibly high.

To tide us fans over, ASSIGNMENT X has compiled a list of things we’d like to see in Season 7. Let us know what you think.

1. Real-life pregnant Emily Deschanel playing fictional pregnant Temperance Brennan. We can safely expect this one. Kudos to show runner Hart Hanson, the production company and Deschanel for incorporating the pregnancy into the storyline rather than stashing Brennan behind autopsy tables or sending the character away for the duration.

2. Some actual romance between Brennan and Booth (David Boreanaz). We’ve had six seasons of will the/won’t they/can they/can’t they. Obviously, they would, could and did, so let’s just see them enjoying each other’s company while solving crimes. They don’t need to behave out of character and drool all over each other, but they can stop agonizing or protesting about their relationship now. Honest, having them be entirely comfortable with each other won’t hurt the show.

3. Psychotherapist Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) being hauled up on ethics charges. In real life, any psychiatrist/psychologist who socialized with his patients, let alone manipulated them experimentally (as Sweets did by failing to tell Brennan that Booth was alive at a crucial juncture) or wrote a book about his theories of their relationship, using their real names while they were still patients, would lose his license.

4. Angela’s (Michaela Conlin) dad, the rock star played by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, giving a musical performance. Gibbons has been recurring on BONES for years now, he really is a rock star, might as well take advantage of the fact.

5. The return of Eric Millegan as Zack Addy. Poor Zack got written off the show and is currently residing in a mental hospital as the result of a crime he didn’t commit after a season-long crazed killer arc got rushed to a conclusion. The notion that Zack killed someone out of some faux-Nietzsche philosophy made no sense, and the later explanation that he didn’t really kill anyone but had sort of followed a lunatic leader made even less. Zack doesn’t have to come back full-time, but we like the guy, let him have a better resolution than this.

6. An answer as to whether the janitor played by Enrico Colantoni was real or a figment of Brennan’s troubled imagination. Nod once for figment, bring Colantoni back for another guest shot if real.

7. Let conspiracy theorist Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) finally uncover a real conspiracy that affects the Jeffersonian. He’s been primed for this since the show started – give him something big that affects the whole Jeffersonian to be absolutely right about.

8. Have lab boss Cam (Tamara Taylor) get out in the field in the thick of an investigation. She’s been supplying stalwart support all this time, let’s see her in the crime-solving limelight for once.

9. Allowing for the fact that such a thing might not make it past Broadcast Standards, it would be interesting to see a case that would actually gross out Bones and Hodgins. We have no clue what that would be, but it would be fascinating to find out.

10. No more crossovers with THE FINDER. Yes, that episode was a backdoor pilot for a new series by BONES exec producer/show runner Hart Hanson, but having our guys bring in strangers to do something they normally do themselves was bad enough. Hearing the back story between Booth and the Finder was even worse – if Booth stopped speaking to the guy over that being-pulled-away-from-his-infant-son incident back then, he’s had plenty of time to figure out all the angles by now. If forgiveness hasn’t been forthcoming so far, it seems unlikely now (or at least, it wasn’t sold to us properly). If BONES really wants to do a crossover with another Fox show, let Gregory House make a mistake that kills a patient with a rare bone disease, so Brennan can figure out what happened by examining the skeleton. House among the Bones – think of the possibilities!

  1. Re: #9 it doesn’t have to that gross, just something that wigs out Brennan and Hodgins- like the ripped belly bottom ring in season 1

  2. I LOVE this…particularly the idea of Hodgins having a real conspiracy come up (other than the Kennedy one from “Proof in the Pudding”) and of him and Brennan being grossed out by a case. Also? SO yes to MORE CAM in the field (and anywhere). NO ONE gives better “I’m the only sane one here” looks. And it would be nice if they let B&B just, as you said, be *comfortable* with each other. Well done.

    • Yeah, that’s a good one about the conspiracy theory

  3. absolutely bring back Zack. For some reason, the show has been going downhill since his departure. It’s not just that we lost a wonderful character and its great interactions with the rest of the cast, the writing/plots have not been as interesting as the 1st 2 season. Bones was one of my favorite shows during seasons 1 and 2. Now, it’s just so so. I never like the “will they/won’t they” tease; it’s lazy writing. That tease only worked in Fraiser.

  4. dont really care if the bring back zack or night i like some of the other guys and why should they lose what they have been working for cause he comes back……and i DO NOT think sweets should get in trouble…everythign else sounds good to me!!!

    • i dont think sweets should get into trouble either i mean THEY gave him permission for the book and they became is surrogate family! i mean he doesnt have any… i also think zach should come back!

      • No Sweets in trouble. Bring Back Zach!!!

  5. Not only would it be nice if Cam got back in the field, but if she went back to wearing clothes one would actually wear in an office. Yes on some actual romance and when did Sweets withhold that Booth was alive? I missed that one.

    • After the episode where he gets shot by the crazy stalker lady I cant remember which season they all kinda blur since I am watching reruns. I know the stalker one was wanna be in the weeds.

  6. Another vote for #5 here ~ I absolutely love Zack and I honestly think Hodgens misses him. Don’t nec have him replace any of the interns but for sure he can teach/guide them as Brennan does.

    Also would love a large or wicked case that involved the whole team including ALL of the interns(AT THE SAME TIME), instead of just seeing them one at a time.

  7. I would like them to bring back Zack Addy into the show for a permininent squint! and of course Brennan’s assistant!! Its not the same with out him! He started in the First Season and from their he should of stayed in the following seasons!Please!!!!!!!!!! Bring back Eric Millegan!!!

  8. No Sweets should NOT get in trouble!!! He’s their baby duck! 😀 😀 But I definitely agree to the more B&B :) I pretty much agree with all of them except the one where Sweets gets in trouble 😀 Gonna be fun to see how Bones handles pregnancy 😛

  9. Considering Enrico Colantoni plsyrd s security guard, not a janitor, and the point behind Hodgins is to illustrate how little conspiracy theories make sense, you don’t seem to know the show that well.

  10. Please, please, bring back Zack! He was a soul of “Bones”, we really miss him. Your series shows us that friendship, love, purity and innicence always wins, but this innocent guy is suffering. His place is in lab, not in hospital or jail. Bring him back!!
