The Love Story of Bones' Booth and Brennan in 12 Episodes on Brennan (they' re dating) and constantly getting upstaged by Booth's. Brennan acquired the nickname "Bones" from Booth. She initially Brennan constantly needled Booth while he was dating Tessa.
But now, we don't have to chase each other because we caught each other. Look back on TV's most memorable weddings! When Hodgins and I were buried alive, we each wrote a message to someone we loved incase our bodies were ever found. Hodgins wrote to Angela and I wrote to you. Dear Agent Booth, you are a confusing man. You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating.
You believe in ghosts and maybe even Santa Claus and because of you I've started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me such joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you, you're already looking at me. Like you it makes no sense, and like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful.
However, as the show went on and they grew closer, they got more and more jealous, to the point that they should have admitted their feelings earlier. Instead, they'd be jealous, others would remark on it, and they'd deny it. The only reason why this happened as long and often as it did was because they were a couple on a television show. Booth denied her request, on the grounds of a felony charge on her record.
He was the arresting officer, and he refused to say he was wrong to charge her. However, she shot someone who was going to hurt her but didn't have a weapon himself. She argued that it was only his leg and the man was in jail for the rest of his life. Booth delighted in sitting there and making her go through the process of submitting her request.
He also enjoyed denying her request and told her he'd take care of any weapon needs. He even suggested she use her words if need be in a situation that might require her to have a weapon. Yes, opposites attract, but their opposing views were often the reasons for their conflicts. Brennan was a scientist first and foremost. She relied on facts and refused to use her gut when it came to the cases.
She also wasn't much of a people person and lacked some social skills. That meant she didn't understand jokes or some comments those around her made. She was also an atheist and was therefore often dismissive of religion. Unlike Brennan, Booth listened to his gut. He was a people person and understood social aspects his partner did not. His religion was also very important to him, and it was often a source of contention between the two, especially in the earlier seasons.
During the coma following his surgery, he dreamed he and Brennan were together. In season 5, he was confused about how he felt about Brennan. It was possible the tumor and dream caused those feelings, and he had to figure out if that was true.
Though brain scans suggested it was, he grew to realize that he truly did love her that season. Still, that brain tumor called into question all of Booth's actions and feelings about Brennan for a brief period of time.
Considering that neither was willing to admit their feelings up to that point, was it really necessary to suggest his were because of a tumor?

Following their talk with him, Booth took a gamble and told Brennan he knew she was the one. However, Brennan couldn't take the same risk. She played it safe and didn't want to risk losing him. Each stayed true to who they were at that point in that scene and you couldn't fault them for that. It was still hard to see Booth so hurt. After "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole", it took almost a year for her to try to remedy that.
Instead, fans had to sit through her being jealous of his subsequent relationship with Hannah. Those were two of the most emotional scenes for the couple before they got together. She was his wife, and he shouldn't have kept her in the dark.
In fact, they found Jared's body and briefly thought it could be Booth's.

Brennan had to examine the bones like any other and figure out herself that she hadn't lost her husband. After everything was over and they found Booth, the couple spoke in the hospital. However, they resolved things much too quickly, considering how dangerous and serious the situation was. There was no reason for Booth to keep Brennan in the dark. They thought they weren't going to make it back to their loved ones, so they each wrote a letter. He wrote to Angela, and she wrote to Booth.
At her wedding to Booth, she read that letter as part of her vows. She had written about her early, messy feelings for him, but she denied her feelings for him for years after that.

By the time she started college she had been to twelve different schools and has specifically said that she hated the lack of consistency.
Her time in foster care was quite traumatic and abusive; Brennan indicated that she was once locked in the trunk of a car for two days because she broke a plate,  and in the episode "The Finger in the Nest", she reveals to Booth that she walked into her elderly neighbor's house to find the woman dead.
