In the video, we saw Brennan (Emily Deschanel) get shot. We saw her rushed to the hospital. We saw her have a supernatural encounter with her dead mother. And we heard a doctor say that her heart has stopped.
So what’s the deal? Is Bones really about to kill off its leading lady?
Worry not, Bones fans. Dr. B isn’t going anywhere! Executive producers Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have already talked about this episode, and they’ve described it as a “near-death experience” on multiple occasions.
And you know what our favorite thing about near-death experiences is? The lack of actual death taking place.
Brennan will be shaken to her core by this horrific shooting event, but she will make it out of everything alive. Baby Christine is not going to become motherless. Booth (David Boreanaz) won’t have to face life as a single parent. Bones is going to live.
We repeat: Bones is going to live. You can breathe now.
