‘Bones’ season 8 spoilers: Will a near death experience change Brennan’s outlook?

BonesIf you’re a “Bones” fan then you may have already heard about the big upcoming episode (airing in February) where Brennan will face death and see her deceased mother, but now we have a few more details about that episode – so if you can’t wait until next year to find out more then read on. (Warning: Spoilers ahead).

If you’ve been searching for “Bones” season 8 spoilers, then you probably already know that Brennan will be shot while working at the office.  What you might not know is that it won’t be a random shooting, but instead someone will be trying to prevent Brennan from solving the case.  Executive producer, Stephen Nathan, says that not only will Brennan face death, but that she will come face to face with her deceased mother, which will give the scientist side of her a good shake and she will be forced to really look at herself and what she believes in.  He said:

“Brennan is working on a case that someone does not want her to solve. And in their attempt to prevent her from doing that, she gets shot and has a near-death experience where she meets her mother again. This is the further evolution of Brennan’s character. She is somebody who has been so literal, so rational and so reasonable; she wants everything to be explained. And now she is having an experience that is inexplicable, so she has to admit that there are things that are not explainable. As much as she tries to discount it and dismiss it, it changes her and makes her a bit more open to the world.”

The other cool aspect of this episode will be that fans will have a chance to learn about what Brennan was like as a child and see what she was like before she became the woman that we all know and love.

Are you excited to see what Brennan was like as a child? Do you want to see her move away from her scientific side and towards something more spiritual?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
