Bones Season 7, Episode 7 Promo: Our In-depth Analysis of “The Prisoner in the Pipe”
Bones Season 7 returns to TV tonight, April 2, and Fox has already released a couple of promos teasing what to expect. We’ve already seen plenty of spoilers for Season 7, Episode 7, “The Prisoner in the Pipe,” but there’s always more to be learned. We’ve combed through one of the promo, second-by-second, frame-by-frame, to see what we could discover. Take a look at what we figured out.
Scene 1a: Cue the heartwarming music. The narrator begins: “Every Look...” Flash back to Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) standing on the street. He lifts his eyes and gazes meaningfully at her. She smiles back softly, then walks over to wrap her arm around his.
Scene 1b: More of the heartwarming music. The narrator continues: “Every Smile...” Another flashback. Brennan gives Booth a huge, happy grin. He lifts his eyebrows adorably.
Scene 1c: The music swells. “Every Moment...” Now we’re flashing back to the end of Season 5. Booth and Brennan are standing in the airport. He’s dressed in his army fatigues, about to go off to Afghanistan. She’ll soon be heading off to do research in Southeast Asia. Remember when we thought this might be the end? Sad memories.
Scene 1d: Okay, we’re ready to be happy again. “Has brought them closer to this.” Flash forward to Brennan pregnant! And they’re cuddling on a couch. And looking absolutely adorable. Aww.
Scene 2a: Cut abruptly to modern day. Booth and Brennan are in a car. Brennan looks panicked. Her eyes are huge, her mouth opens wide. She suddenly screams, “Pull over NOW!”
Scene 2b: Is Brennan in labor? Brakes screech. Booth quickly obliges. “Okay!”
Scene 2c: Sounds like she is! Booth’s black SUV is stopped in the road. He talks to a stranger across the way, while Brennan calls out from the passenger’s seat. “I’m about to push this baby out right now!”
Scene 2d: She’s giving birth on the side of the road? The guy standing on the side of the road looks terrified. Booth seems pretty convinced, “She will. She’ll squat on the lawn. She’ll...” Honestly? Somehow, we wouldn’t doubt that.
Scene 3a: Oh yeah. Another scheduling change. Didn’t you hear? Narrator: “Bones moves to Mondays, April 2nd on Fox.” And then it’s over. Wait... is that really all? What happens next? We know from the spoilers that Brennan goes into labor while she and Booth are investigating their latest case inside a prison. (This prison, in fact.) But will Dr. B really be forced to give birth on the side of the road, or will she make it to a hospital in time? We’re still not sure!
