“My contract was up, so I had opportunities to go into some new areas,” David tells TVLine. “But [the producers and I] came together and found a happy medium. We sat and talked hard about the character development, and I’m excited.”
According to David, we can expect Bones to go deeper into Booth's troubled past — especially as far as his mental health is concerned. “We’ve never really focused on the hardcore truth of what Booth goes through on an everyday basis, just as far as being a soldier and the pain he endures,” David explains.
“His health problems may come to fruition…. There might be a traumatic experience that he’s got to deal with personally…. Maybe we’ll see more of that kind of stuff.”
Jeez, how many more traumatic experiences can this poor dude go through? We're still recovering from the time he went on that clown killing spree. Or that time he was in a coma and met Stewie from Family Guy, aka The Episode That Shall Not Be Named.
