The identity of Cam‘s (Tamara Taylor) new love interest on Bones Season 8 is a mystery we've been trying to crack for quite some time now. Back in July, Tamara told us that Cam’s new man will be someone we’ve met already, but even she didn’t know who he was quite yet.
Flash forward to today. We still don’t know who Cam’s man will be, but Tamara finally does! Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment at FOX’s Fall Eco-Casino party, the actress dropped some pretty interesting hints about his identity.
How would you describe the first episode of the season?
The first episode, we are basically picking up where the season finale left off which is that Brennan's still on the run. We're feverishly trying to figure out how to clear her name and get her back and catch Pelant. And it's not as easy as it seems, and Brennan actually from the road is attempting to help us.
Cam sort of looks the other way colleagues are trying to help Brennan. I never thought she'd be quite so accommodating in the rule-breaking arena.
Well, it's nice because at first, when I read the first few pages, I was like, has Cam lost her mind? What the hell? This is kind of insensitive. But then when I got what she was doing, I was like, “Okay. I get it.” In the long run, it ends up being the linchpin, but at first, I seem like the bad guy.
So your love interest, do you know who it is?
I finally know. I've read the script, finally.
When do we find out?
They break it in episode five.
Last time you didn't know who it was, and now, are you shocked? Are you pleased?
Pleasantly surprised. I am a little surprised, but pleasantly so.
Are we going to be shocked?
I think so.
It's not Sweets (John Francis Daley), is it?
That would shock me. That would be really shocking, a little inappropriate on some level as well. I don't want to say anything. I don't want to say anything. [Editor’s note: She’s trying very hard not to say anything here, isn’t she? Hmm.]
Is it an underling?
Who knows? Well, you realize there are so many people that you see. You kind of go, “Okay. Well, that turns into a larger pool than we've got.” It's not necessarily someone I'm close and personal to. It could be someone in passing that I’ve had a couple of episodes with. I don't want to give too much away. But he's very cool.
Can you say anything about episodes two, three, and four?
I know what we're doing for episode four, which is we found a body in a garbage truck. And it has something to do with a community of artists that are all suspects, and it's kind of crazy.
So do you feel like Cam is growing?
Cam is growing. Cam’s branching out. She's sort of allowed to have a little bit of a personal life that bleeds into the Jeffersonian.
