Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, the stars of Fox’s “Bones.” When asked about the struggles of their characters of Booth and Brennan’s relationship and how it would evolve over this season, Boreanaz noted “Bones is going to really have to reevaluate their relationship in a way that is, why is he acting this way and I’m not quite understanding it? Booth takes some things in his own hands and there’ll definitely be some conflict that’s there. There will be some conflicting moments, some emotional moments, as well as trying to figure each other out again, because things are going to be much different when he gets out (of prison).” Deschanel added that “there’s lots of conflict, but we’re still a solid couple, but we’re really dealing with some strong differences of opinion; and Booth is clearly hurting and Brennan doesn’t understand and they’re trying to figure out how to address it all. It’s hard on both of them.” Be sure to tune into the Thursday October 2 seasoon premier on Fox at 8:00 PM for the episode titled “The Lance to the Heart.”
