Like us, Dean Lopata, Bones’s head storyboard whiz, has been keeping a close eye on TV Line’s “Law Enforcement Crushes” tournament... and he doesn’t like what he sees! 

As you may know, after a no-contest victory against Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is now getting pummeled by dog collar-wearing Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette). (Booth [David Boreanaz] was barely bested by Richard Castle [Nathan Fillion] long ago.)

To put it lightly, Lopata is not pleased. Just recently, he tweeted what could well be a dire threat: “Remember what happened to Vincent Nigel Murray?!” Could Brennan kick the bucket if she doesn’t pull her weight today?! And in what’s possibly an even more terrifying prospect, Lopata outright demanded that Bones fans vote, lest he do the unthinkable and bring back Booth's ex girlfriend!!

As for us... well, with Brennan pulling a dismal 32% of the vote, we’ve kind of lost hope. If you want a consolation prize, though, you can revel in the fact that Bones just passed 9 million “likes” on Facebook. You should like us on Facebook too! We're family!

(And to clarify: There are no plans to bring Hannah back to Bones that we know of. But ... we probably should go vote to make sure Brennan wins that poll. Just in case.)
