Hey! Yes, here I am.
This is a great topic of discussion and I'm glad my tweets gave you this idea. I've never really had just one ending in mind, because that changed through the years as soon as the story progressed. For example, years ago I would have said I'd like Booth and Brennan to get married in the series finale, but that changed with s9. I also would have liked them to have another baby in the series finale (because I'm not really a fan of seeing too many babies on screen), but now that is happening before the end of the show as well. So, I think that my finale could change too by the end of s10 or even with an hypotetical s11. I kinda agree with HH and SN when they say that usually characters drive you somewhere. So I don't think there's a right or wrong finale (unless something tragic happens - as Sharon was joking on Twitter, that would be a hot mess LOL), but for the rest, I just want a fair finale, a satisfying finale for the characters and for the fans. I'm a bit torn: on one hand, I'd like - for example - Booth to get that promotion and become the head of the FBI, Ange maybe pursuing her artistic career in Paris with Hodgins and maybe Cam to get married to Arastoo. This would be a good finale, but - of course - I'd be a little sad at the idea of having the team parted forever. And also, if Booth got the promotion, what would Brennan do? She could become a full time writer or something, so that the two of them could live a happy life and be finally away from danger, and maybe Clark could run the Jeffersonian where Cam could still be the boss. This would be satisfying for me, but another finale I'd like would be one where everyone keeps doing whatever they do now on the show. Some sort of open series finale, where they show us one last case but not the last case for the whole team. It would be reassuring to see that in the Bones world the team kept doing whatever they are doing even if "we" don't see them anymore. As long things are not forced and everyone stays alive I'd be happy!
Ratings wise, I'd like the show to close before they got to the 0s, but I'm afraid that will happen before s10 is over. So enough "dignity" (as Teresa was saying) story-wise would be good for me! What do you guys think?
