Today marks the beginning of filming for Bones eighth season as announced by Hart Hanson. Some of the cast chimed in on twitter, including TJ Thyne (Jack Hodgins), Michaela Conlin (Anglea Montenegro Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Camille Saroyan), John F Daley (Lance Sweets), Eugene Byrd (Clark Edison), Stephen Nathan (producer), and Ian Toynton (producer).
Booth’s family and his FBI job have been taken from him by a twisted madman. Brennan is on the run, following frighteningly close to a path her father was force to trod, after being set up by Pelant. The Jeffersonian carries on trying to clear her name without help from it’s brilliant forensic anthropologist.
So far, the few clues we have to follow are that Booth is in a bad position with the FBI thinking he has a hand in Brennan’s disappearance. Booth has a hard time with the absence of his family and a sense of helplessness. Cam’s instance on keeping their work above reproach will allow Brennan to return, cleared of all wrong doing by the courts. Pelant will be with us through more of season eight, continuing to challenge the team with his evil genius. Finally, even though Booth had to hand over his gun, there will be gun play in episode 1, “The Future in the Past.”
First thing tomorrow, Bones Season 8 starts shooting. You know what this means: free coffee and donuts for showrunners.
