True or False: Here’s my preview of the BONES Season 7 premiere “The Memories of a Shallow Grave.” TRUE!!

by Jim on October 7, 2011 · 28 comments

I know this cast photo is not new but Fox has yet to post the 7th Season photos. (L-R: Michaela Conlin, TJ Thyne, Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley)

OK, all you Bones fans out there know I am not a fan of spoilers and, while I am prone to teasing, I believe in not finding out too much before you finally get to watch the seventh season premiere on Fox on November 3rd. So, since I don’t want to give too much away about the case in the first episode or about what’s going on with our favorite Bones characters, here’s a little True and False game that should hopefully entertain you regarding the season premiere episode, “The Memories In The Shallow Grave”…if you like my little True and False game, let me know and I’ll do the same with the second episode, “The Hot Dog In The Competition.” (Stay tuned! Coming soon!)  (And in case you didn’t see that I’m giving away copies of the Bones Season 6 DVD, click RIGHT HERE to see how you enter!)

That said, for people who truly don’t want to know anything until the episode airs, I’d stop reading now. For the rest of you, I’d call this ‘barely spoilery.’ I do tell you some things but not too much.

  1. You’ll find out early in the episode where the relationship between Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) has landed since we last saw our fave duo.
  2. Sadly, Emily is barely in the episode and she’s only seen phoning in from a faraway place.
  3. We get to see Baby Hodgins in and out of the lab.
  4. Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have cameos as dueling janitors fighting over a hard-boiled egg in the background of a scene.
  5. These words are spoken in the episode:  “normal,” “family,” “fried rice” “married” and “rational.”  (No, I’m not telling you who says them and in what context but I would not jump to conclusions!)
  6. Brennan is seen watching an episode of New Girl (the new Fox sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel) on a laptop.
  7. Geoff Stults (who we’ll see in the Bones spin-off, The Finder) has a cameo and hits on Angela, as he has said he wants to do in interviews.
  8. More than one pair of characters has great heart-to-heart scenes in the episode.
  9. There’s a fabulous musical montage in a Baby Store with two of our cast testing new strollers while Amy Grant’s “Baby, Baby” plays on the overhead speaker.
  10. While the theme song is the same, you will see some new video in the opening titles.
  11. Hannah (Katheryn Winnick) makes a surprise appearance.
For all the answers to these questions, go to the next page NOW!!

Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance Brennan (L) and David Boreanaz as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth

  1. True! Thankfully, the show does not revert back to the will they/won’t they device.
  2. FALSE!!  (OK, I know that probably bounced your blood pressure a bit but I gotta keep ya guessing, right?!)
  3. True! And, just as both Michaela Conlin and creator Hart Hanson said at this summer’s TCA Fox party, the baby is ridiculously cute. Thumbs up!
  4. False! (But wouldn’t that be AMAZING!?)
  5. True!
  6. False!
  7. False! (OK, that one I’m sure had some of your sharpening your claws!)
  8. True!! (The fans will be very happy when they see these scenes!)
  9. FALSE! (I’m sure Hanson/Nathan can do better than Amy Grant if this scene were to ever happen. Don’t you agree?)
  10. True! (I love the new and improved opening!)
  11. FALSE! While I know I was someone who wasn’t bothered by Hannah’s part in Season 6, she does not appear. (Did I give any of you a heart attack?  My bad!!)

The seventh season of Bones premieres Thursday, November 3rd at 9/8c.

YES!!! I’ve been hoping for a while that they’d add new footage to the beginning credits! 😀

dovepage October 7, 2011 at 10:21 pm

Fun article and clever way to answer many of our questions.

Colleen October 7, 2011 at 10:49 pm

OMG. Jim. I have fallen in love with this show all over again! I can’t believe you didn’t say anything about Gilligan’s Island, The Andy Griffith Show, or how no home is complete without a python. Maybe next time. 🙂

Colleen October 7, 2011 at 10:50 pm

And Sarah, the new credits are FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!!!!

Angelena October 7, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Loved this game. Please do it again for future episodes.

Loved the idea of the dueling janitors. They do use crew member names as characters so having some silly cameos wouldn’t seem beyond the pale.

Kat October 8, 2011 at 1:57 am

Thanks Jim. I’m so excited. Glad they also added new footageto the opening credits. Can’t wait. Nov. 3rd can’t arrive soon enough. The Promo’s are killing me. Someone said on Twitter that if the Bones ratings are down, it’s because half the Bones fans are dead due to hyperventilation after watching the promos and reading spoilers. LOL. Great job.

Tinkana October 8, 2011 at 4:58 am

Ahhhh I can’t wait! I like the true/ false you should do it again for the second episode 😀

Genny October 8, 2011 at 6:17 am

That was fun… well, except for #10. I could have done without #10! I’m looking forward to seeing this done for episode 2.

Kyle October 8, 2011 at 9:42 am

Loved #9–I so wish that had been true! 🙂

jackie October 8, 2011 at 10:29 am

i loved the true and false. nice job and go ahead and do it for episode 2. 😉

historynut October 8, 2011 at 11:20 am

Loved your T/F experiment. Fun and perfect for how big the balloon of anticipation is growing for all us fans. (Almost popped over #10 though. Just sayin’. 🙂

Do it some more!

Jim October 8, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Well, I couldn’t give away EVERYTHING!! 🙂

Clara October 8, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Loved it! Yes please do it again.

Jessica October 8, 2011 at 5:19 pm

Great article! I am so excited for November 3rd I can barely stand it! So awesome to hear about the new and improved opening sequence! Please do this for episode two! Thanks!

Cathy October 9, 2011 at 1:14 pm

eleyezeeaye October 10, 2011 at 8:09 am

Crystal October 11, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Love, love, love! I have an unhealthy obsession with Bones. Thanks for the fix, Hart!

Jodi October 11, 2011 at 3:10 pm

I love this! #8 is the best. I can’t wait for the premiere!

karrn drifmeyer October 11, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Saima October 11, 2011 at 3:32 pm

I would actually like to see Hannah and see wat her response to temp and seeker being together is. It would make it very interesting!!! But can’t wait for it!!!

Alysa October 11, 2011 at 4:40 pm

I’m glad Hannah is gone, her and Booth don’t belong together, and I really am looking forward to seeing the baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Debbie October 12, 2011 at 9:08 am
