You can probably guess which moment in Bones 2011 history got TV Guide’s attention, but we’ll tell you anyway: why, it’s Brennan (Emily Deschanel)’s jaw-dropping admission to Booth (David Boreanaz) that she was (and still is!) carrying his child.
Looking back, of course, we can’t help smacking ourselves on the forehead for being shocked by this one. It is an inevitable television trope, after all, that whenever two people get together in the sack (and we’re not talking True Blood multi-partner mayhem, here, but instead a one-time kind of thing), then the girl gets pregnant. (The same result applies whenever a female character throws up.)
But that’s part of what makes Bones great — it takes moments and phenomena that might be clichéd and presents them in a fresh and exciting way!
