When Bones returns for its seventh season on Nov. 3, the show will be moving into uncharted territory. After a six-season dance around and toward one another, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) will be living as a couple, preparing for the birth of their first child. How will the show change without the will-they-won't-they romantic tension that's driven the story for so long? Although the show's Comic-Con panel was scrapped, TVGuide.com spoke with executive producer Stephen Nathan to seek answers to that very question. Plus: He talks about working around Deschanel's real-life pregnancy, a new long-term villain and seeing more of Booth and Brennan's families....

I have seldom met anyone who didn't think earning a quick four thousand dollars — cash — for an hour or two of work, wasn't a wonderful idea. Of course, everything must be relative. I wouldn't shill for the tobacco companies, no matter what they paid. But serving a subpoena — a subject that we will visit again this summer under less pleasant circumstances — is just the ticket for Flynn and Provenza, who rope the erstwhile civilian tech, Buzz Watson, into their scheme by promising him a third of their take: two hundred dollars.

For regular watchers, this is our seasonal Flynn and Provenza episode...

"Can I get a 'pop pop'?" TV Guide Magazine's L.A. Bureau Chief Michael Schneider, who moderated the Community panel, asked a crowd of 2,000 fans before the cast hit the stage at Comic-Con. The audience channeled their inner Magnitude and obliged enthusiastically, setting the tone of fan love for the rest of the hour-long session. The entire cast — minus Alison Brie, who was unavailable due to a filming conflict — ran on stage to deafening cheers, with the loudest being reserved for Donald Glover and Joel McHale. But the surprise cast member of the hour was Annie's Boobs, Greendale's resident monkey, who delivered the Community Season 2 DVD to creator Dan Harmon. "I don't know what she's doing, but I think she's pooping," said Harmon after the skit....
