Bones Clarification: Is Brennan Really Giving Birth in Prison?
That’s the question a bewildered Sam asked Michael Ausiello of TV Line this past Tuesday. (You may recall executive producer Stephen Nathan’s rather straightforward declaration that the baby’s making its debut in the big house.) Fortunately for Sam, Ausiello’s all reassurances: “Brennan doesn’t actually give birth in prison on Bones.”
But... didn’t Nathan say... wha? Actually, both Ausiello and Nathan can be correct here, though it does depend on some semantic gymnastics. Sure, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) will go into labor in the jail, but based on Ausiello’s testimony, we can deduce that Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan will overcome the prison lock-down before Bones Jr. is ready to come out.
(Of course, all our wombless male readers will be forgiven for not understanding a word of this.)
