Bones season 8 is going to show how they get Brennan back after she had to go on the run because Pelant framed her. She took Christine and left, meaning Booth was left to figure things out at home.
Season 8 Spoilers
TV Guide talked to executive producer Stephen Nathan about what's coming up when the series resumes. After the shortened seventh season, the eighth is going to include the four bonus episodes. Of course, what everyone's looking to see resolved is getting Booth and Brennan back together. Nathan did say that Booth is going to be "furious" with Max and Brennan, though "he understands." He just wanted to be part of what was going on instead of being left behind like he was, with no idea about what happened until Max explained it. You can't blame him for being upset about that, even though it had to be done.
Bones season 8 is going to show the Jeffersonian team and Booth trying to figure out how to get Pelant behind bars, where he belongs. Nathan did say that's what will be going on in the premiere. They have to prove Brennan did not kill anyone and Pelant did, despite the evidence saying the opposite, and they have to figure out how to make sure Pelant doesn't figure out a way to ruin their attempts. There is still the matter of what he did in their house at the end of last season. He did something with the clock, and there has been speculation that it was a bomb. On that matter, Nathan said, "Pelant is an evil genius. He is somebody who tries to cover himself for any eventuality," and "We'll see everything pay off eventually. [And] we'll be seeing Pelant's strengths and weaknesses when we come back." He did say that Pelant is "around next season" and will "surprise the teamÂ—and usÂ—at every turn." Pelant has found ways of getting things done when he shouldn't have been able to. It's not going to be so easy to prove he's guilty, but if anyone can, it's this team. But how long will it take them?
Nathan also teased that what's coming up will "have its impact on" Booth and Brennan. The series didn't show them get together. Instead, it showed the aftermathÂ—Brennan's pregnancyÂ—then jumped forward well into that pregnancy in season 7. This could give them the chance to show some drama in their relationship. They've been apart, and while Brennan did what she had to, she also took their daughter with her. Even though she felt like she had no choice, that could mean some trouble, at least momentarily, for their relationship. Perhaps this will give viewers the chance to see some things they haven't because of how the show went about their relationship.
