Same here, always in. I wasn't happy about them killing a sub character but Jared has not been used in some time so I guess it's OK. I'm in for as long as it runs.

So I really thought this was the last season. I could have sworn I'd read that somewhere, and was kinda excited to be done with it!

Not yet . . . not quite yet . . .

Believe it or not I started watching Bones on Netflix a couple months ago, never saw it before... I'm completely hooked, the chemistry between Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz is up there with Mulder and Scully, the investigations, the relationships, the humor, acting... I'm at season 8 right now, although I already know a few of the upcomings twists (basically who dies and who finally "reappears" ) - but it doesn't matter it's such a great show. I can't believe I missed it before!

In the season premiere of this final season, they are finally undoing some of damage done to the character of Zack Addy many seasons earlier.

I agree completely. Why they did that to Zack is a mystery to me. Not sure if the actor wanted to pursue a different path, but to me that storyline really didn't make a lot of sense.

Yeah, we discussed this at the time and Eric Millegan who plays Zack wanted to go off and do something else, theater maybe.

Still doesn't justify the idiotic way they wrote his character off the show however. I still remember all the plot holes that dumb twist created.

I always wondered if they did it, instead of killing him off, because they thought maybe he might want to come back and they wanted to leave the door open.

It was weird... and most of the others have just been killed off when they left the show.

If they wanted to leave the door open for a return just sending him on a dig to the middle of Unknownsland Overseasworld would have accomplished that.

They could have made the character quit with numerous less dumb plot swerves. If Zach had just shot and killed the Gormagon dude (or some other random intruder) to save Brennan he could have had a breakdown and left.

But the showrunners thought having the most logical and thoughtful character on the show choose to become an acolyte of a cannibal serial killer making a big silver skeleton for no reason was the way to go. Truly one of the dumbest writing moments on television.

Every time this comes up, my mind wanders to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode about the Gorgatron... It was hard for me to take the Bones episodes with the Gormagon seriously after that.

But, yeah... I see your points... it was really odd what they did with Zach. I was trying to imagine some kind of plan, but truth be told... I don't get it either.

I believe I read 12 episodes... with 3 having already aired... so 9 left. What I don't know is if that 12th episode is a standard one OR if it might be double-length or anything. Either way, we're going to be fast approaching the halfway point here soon.
