"The Jeffersonian team is going to investigate the death of Wesley Foster, a conspiracy blog writer who had arranged to meet up with Booth to discuss a previous case before his untimely death," says the FOX release on Bones 9x24. This previous case, reports revealed, is related to the Ghost Killer.
"I wouldn't categorize [the Bones Season 9 finale] as a happy ending. It changes everything. Booth always has faith that the good guy wins, but in this situation, it doesn't look good," Emily Deschanel told TVGuide.com.
"Everything - Booth's work, Booth's relationship [with wife Brennan], and the direction of Booth and Brennan's life - will be called into question at the end of this season," Nathan said in the same TV Guide report. He added, "The show as we all know it will continue; it will just continue in a different way." It seems safe to assume that Bones Season 10 will feature big changes.
