The people who make “Bones” must know that fans are all itching to see what the fallout from last season’s finale. So in the first batch of pictures from the season premiere they give us …
Curse you, wily FOX promo people. The network managed to reveal nothing about the state of the Brennan (Emily Deschanel)-Booth (David Boreanaz) relationship or about the state of Booth’s health following his coma. Boreanaz and exec producer Stephen Nathan have said that both things will be addressed early on in the season — just not in these pictures. Sigh.
As for Lauper, she’s playing a psychic named — get this — Avalon Harmonia in the season premiere, which airs Thursday, Sept. 17. It doesn’t look like she and Booth get off on the right foot:
Angela (Michaela Conlin), however, looks positively tickled to have Avalon on the case. We’re guessing that the strictly empirical Brennan is less accepting of the psychic.
It looks like Avalon sticks around long enough to bring her tarot cards into the interrogation room.
And finally, Booth and Bones together — but this hardly looks like an intimate moment.
Oh well — at least it’s only three weeks until the season premiere.
