“Bones” Season 9 begins with a lot of tension between Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel). Throughout the season premiere, “The Secrets in the Proposal,” this tension is evident. See it for yourself in these video clips from the episode.

The first video (above) shows just how tense things have gotten between Booth and Brennan in the time since Pelant made Booth break off the engagement. Why is it so very tense? Keep in mind that Booth can’t tell his beloved what’s up unless he wants Pelant to go after and kill innocent people.

Talk about stuck between a rock and a hard place.

“Have you noticed dead bodies always save Booth from confronting his demons?”

Booth isn’t answering anyone’s calls these days. That makes the crime scene uncomfortable when we find out that Booth also missed a call from Brennan — to her, love isn’t real without something to back it up, after all.

Sure, Booth says that he loves Brennan. But can she believe him when he’s lying about his whereabouts? Because Booth is totally lying about just being at work. Where else was he? The next video holds part of the answer.

Is confession valid if it’s done with drinks in a bar? It certainly works for Booth, at least a little bit.

“Bones” Season 9 begins Monday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. on FOX.
