The executive producer of Bones has hinted that Brennan (Emily Deschanel) will soon confront her feelings for Booth (David Boreanaz).
Stephen Nathan told TV Guide that the anthropologist would be "forced to face [her] feelings" when she investigates the case of a workaholic murder victim.
"[Brennan] confronts the fact that this woman was running her whole life from feeling anything and she has to confront whether she's going to [do the same]," he explained. "It butts right up against her relationship with Booth and the past five years of history."
Series star Michaela Conlin (Angela Montenegro) recently admitted that she would like to see Booth and Brennan get together.
Bones continues on Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.
