Bones is back!

November 2, 2011 - Andrea Johnson
"Bones" is returning to TV on Thursday and not a moment too soon.

The show, on hiatus since May, ended with a heartwarming cliffhanger that has kept audiences wondering for five months. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) tells Seeley Booth (David Boreananz) "I'm pregnant. You're the father." Booth is seen grinning from ear to ear and then the screen fades to black.

So what happens next? Most of the fun this season is going to come from watching the antics of the bickering couple Booth and Brennan, who have finally been put together after six seasons of will they or won't they?

Any longtime viewer of the show might suspect that Temperance Brennan will make a fairly unusual parent. Forced to babysit a baby on one early case, she played "dancing phalanges" with him instead of peek-a-boo.

Her atrocious social skills, including a complete lack of tact, suggests she will not take the discomforts of pregnancy in stride and might well take them out on Booth, which should be mighty entertaining.

One early promo shows a heavily pregnant Brennan getting teary-eyed at a crime scene and attributing it to her hormonal condition. In another promo, she tells boss Cam that Booth took a picture of her getting teary but she retaliated by threatening to show everyone a picture of a naked Booth cooking an omelet, so neither picture will see the light of day.

The producers promise that the gang will continue to solve weird crimes and that Booth and Bones will continue to have very different takes on the crimes they investigate, even though they are now a couple.

I hope it's all as fun as it sounds.

"Bones" airs at 8 p.m. Thursday on FOX.
