Booth and Hannah Break Up: How Do Fans React?

After 12 seasons, it’s hard to remember a time when Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Special Agent Seeley “Booth” Booth (David Boreanaz) weren’t a couple. True “Semperance” (or “B-Squared,” depending on who you ask) shippers recognize that both main characters have had previous romantic attachments in the past.

Booth is a romantic at heart, whereas Bones is more of a casual dater or friend-with-benefits type. During the sixth season of the show, he was almost engaged to another woman. While temporarily stationed in Afghanistan, Booth meets reporter Hannah Burley (Katheryn Winnick, in a shockingly dissimilar pre-Vikings role), who would later provide the catalyst for his successful relationship with Bones.

Booth and Hannah immediately take their relationship to the next level upon her return from the Middle East by having Hannah move into his Washington, DC apartment. Booth isn’t delusional about his emotions for Bones, but he does envision Hannah as his long-term partner.

When Did Booth Break Up With Hannah?

Right now, we’re going to let you in on a little secret when did Booth and Hannah break up? In the sixth season of Bones, Booth and Hannah end their relationship. In the sixth season episode “The Daredevil in the Mold,” Booth takes a major step in resolving his conflicted feelings for his buddy and coworker and committing to a new lady.

He regretfully learns the hard way that Hannah is “simply not the marrying kind” after asking her to marry him. The rejection was devastating for Booth and for any fans who wanted to see him date someone except Bones. However, some viewers were prevented from continuing because of what was to come.

I think he was frightened of losing yet another woman he loved but who didn’t feel the same way about him because this happened soon after Bones acknowledged that she still carried feelings for him. Which Hannah’s simple response is, “I thought we’d have more time before this,”  when he finally does pop the question.

She insists that she has never wanted to marry him and that he has always known this to be the case. Booth tells her they can’t act like nothing happened and be together, so she breaks up with him. Then he throws the incredibly expensive ring into the water.

What Do Bones Fans Think of Booth and Hannah?

Many viewers were upset by Booth’s choice to return the engagement ring he had purchased for Hannah but was their anger at him or at the show’s conclusion (Boannah)? A more sophisticated response is provided than one may initially suppose. confirmed B&B fan u/Petrizzle said in response to a topic regarding Hannah.

“I do have to admit that if Booth had to be with someone other than Bones, Hannah would not have been a bad choice.”  u/SpiderSmoothie, a Reddit member, boldly revealed themselves to be an anti-Semperance supporter when they wrote, “I thought [Hannah] and Booth were good together. I’m not a fan of the Booth/Bones pairing, tbh. Hannah was such a good character.”

In contrast, u/Strict-Teaching was completely unapologetic in their disregard of everything that may possibly stand in the way of Booth and Bones getting together. They said of Hannah, “I kind of hated her too even though there was nothing super unlikable about her, maybe that’s why: she seems too perfect.”

Fans didn’t exactly weep over the loss of Hannah and Booth’s relationship, but they didn’t exactly love her, either. Many of them said they just couldn’t get past the fact that Hannah was always designed to be an impediment to B-Squared. One Redditor, u/Flibberdejibbet, suggested that Booth might not be devastated by the breakup: “I think [Booth] sabotaged the relationship subconsciously on purpose. They hadn’t even been together for a year, she’d made it plenty clear she wasn’t the marrying kind, and he still proposed!? He definitely was looking for a way out.”
