David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel

Fox's Bones was just renewed for its 10th — and possibly final — season, and executive producer Hart Hanson already knows how he wants to wrap up the forensics drama. (He's had a plan since Season 4, he says, though he admits, "I haven't told anyone.") Leading up to the finale, Hanson is ­conceptualizing a special episode that would find Brennan and Booth (Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz) looking back on and evaluating their work together. "It would take place in a spooky world where all the victims they got justice for show up, perhaps as ghosts," Hanson says. "And a few bad [guys], too."

Topping the list, says Hanson, would be the show's first victim, missing ­Senate intern Cleo Eller; Lionel Little, the young coin collector from the first Christmas episode, who died in the 1950s; and Chelsea, the sick girl whose mother had AIDS and killed her in Season 2. "But," says Hanson, "I don't know what we'd do about the [Season 8] Neanderthal."
