After all that drama of  having to flee from the law and working so hard to clear her name, Brennan’s (Emily Deschanel) life finally seems to be getting back to normal. She’s back to work, spending plenty of time with Baby Christine, and things with Booth (David Boreanaz) are going great.

But even though Dr. B’s life seems all fine and dandy right now, don’t expect it to stay that way for long. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with Bones showrunners Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan during a conference call with reporters on November 1, and Stephen shared a bit of news about Brennan’s future that’s bound to leave everyone feeling a bit shaken up.

“We have an episode coming up where Brennan has a near-death experience,” Stephen said. “[It] really kind of causes her to reevaluate her life, and to see everything a little bit differently.”

Neither showrunner gave any details on what exactly this life-altering event might be, but Stephen did say that he is looking forward to seeing how the characters adapt and change as a result of trying new circumstances.

“We’re trying to move these characters along and not have them stay in the same place, so hopefully it will be surprising for everybody.”

As long as Dr. B comes out alive, we’re fine. Stay safe, Bones!
