“He comes back at a time in Brennan’s life when she is emotionally unbalanced,” teases exec producer Michael Peterson.“She and Booth are going through a very difficult time, so it’s a strange time for this love from the past to show up. I’ll be curious to see what the fans think.” Mc Clintock’s Sully previously appeared in four Season 2 episodes.
When you watch the 100th episode, they talk about Booth really does believe in faith, Brennan does not.

ordeal ended with him and Brennan realizing that they belong at the FBI and Jeffersonian, respectively. We want Booth and Brennan walking off into the sunset in a way, but also, they’re in the primes of their lives. Obviously, they went through hell last year, between Sweets’ death and Booth being incarcerated, being betrayed in a way by the FBI, [and] the gambling stuff, the conspiracy stuff. This is after 10 years of going through similar type incidents.
