* FinaleSeason: In February 2016, FOX executies and the showrunners came to an agreement to end the show with a shortened 12-episode farewell season. In response, the showrunners wrote a Season 12 was concieved 11 finale that [[spoiler:brought back Zack Addy for a serial killer arc]] and served as this.a launch pad for the last season's main theme: tying up loose ends.



** One episode (in which three men swap targets in a murder pact and use Brennan's work as a template in order to further confuse the issue) has Angela encouraging her friend by reminding her that '''Kathy Reichs''' always solves her cases. It's implied that Brennan's literary work is about some version of Ms. Reichs.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tuckerization}}: A really strange example. The work of RealLife forensic antropologist and author Kathy Reichs and her Temperance Brennan novels inspired the show, in which the main character, Temperance Brennan, is both a forensic anthropologist and an author that writes novels about the adventures of a fictional forensic anthropologist named Kathy Reichs.

* FakeFirstKiss: In ''The Santa In the Slush'', where Brennan and Booth were coerced into kissing under the mistletoe.
** In ''The End in the Beginning'', an AlternateRealityEpisode where they were married nightclub owners. Both scenes [[NeverTrustATrailer appeared in the trailers]] for those episodes. In reality, Brennan and Booth don't get together until [[spoiler:the end of season 6.]]
** There a questionable third instance in ''The Sum in the Parts of the Whole'', where Brennan and Booth kiss in a flashback. However, due to [[spoiler:an actual kiss]] that also occurs in that episode, the status quo does change going forward.

* SeriesFauxnale: The Season 10 finale ended this way, with [[spoiler: Angela and Hodgins deciding not to move to Paris after all but to stay in DC, Booth recovering from his lapse into his old gambling addiction and reconciling with Brennan, and the two of them deciding to leave DC for a quieter life in Kansas, in order to protect both Christine and their as-yet-unborn second child]]. The show was still on the bubble at the time, so the producers wanted to end on a quieter AndTheAdventureContinues note in case this was the last season, but the show was renewed shortly before the finale aired.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfContinuity: Somewhere between Level 3 and 4. There are many stand-alone episodes that don't really require you to watch other episodes, but there are also several serialized episodes that are direct continuations of previous ones. Also, there's a day-night difference between a Season 1-3 episode and a Season 7-9 episode.

* HateSink: In season 11, the team investigates the murder of a meninist who led a group called "Man Now" that wanted changes in laws, believing that white men are an oppressed group. The entire group is a long hate sink, one of the first things Booth and Bones hear when they go to a meeting is a man saying that they want to abolish rape shield laws, stating that "if a woman dresses as a slut, she might as well walk with a sign written rape me". Booth even states wanting to punch the guy, something that Bones eventually does when he tells Booth to put a muzzle on Bones and calls her a loud bitch.
