Mega Buzz: Secret Love on Bones, a Vampire Death and a Nashville Proposal

Emily Deschanel, Paul Wesley, Connie Britton

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams

What's next for Cam on Bones now that we know about her relationship with Arastoo? — Elizabeth
ADAM:
There will still be a great deal of secrecy around the relationship. "Cam would like this to be a secret because it's slightly unprofessional to be having an affair with one of your underlings," creator Hart Hanson tells us. "She decides the fate of the interns even more than Brennan does. So it's an uncomfortable position for her, but she's managing to keep it compartmentalized." Or at least she is until it impacts her relationship with her daughter. "It has an effect on Michelle and that's the next story we tell," Hanson teases. "What secrets do you keep and for what reason?"
