Bones is a series full of symbolical and metaphorical scenes, which offer further keys to the reading as well as its dialogues and concrete facts. One of the most evident and important one is exactly in the Pilot: the last scene, the end. Someone is walking away along a boulevard.
Even today fans have different points of view and debate about what the TV show is really based on. On Booth and Brennan relationship? On Brennan only? On science? On their cases? On the entire cast? Depending on the answer each of us prefer, we could be satisfied or disappointed.. But lots of us seem not to consider the fact that Hanson, right from the beginning, said to us very clearly what Bones is about. Along that boulevard, during the last scene, we don’t see Brennan walking away alone, neither the entire cast. We see Booth and Brennan, just the two of them, side by side. A very symbolical image: it will be the story of two persons and the path they will walk together.
