“Bones” Season 9 has a special Valentine’s Day message for all of the show’s fans: Kissing. Lots and lots and lots of kissing by Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel).

That’s about right in a year that got the crime-solving couple from cohabitation to an engagement to a wedding. Season 9 may be only partially over, but there have been plenty of loving moments — holding ice cream, sitting in the diner, hanging from ropes off the side of a cliff …

Remember when “Bones” fans were content with just a longing look and a joke kiss under the mistletoe? Ah, how audiences can get spoiled! And thank goodness for that.

“Bones” Season 9 returns with new episodes Monday, March 10 at 8 p.m. on FOX.
