When do bones and booth start dating

C., you’re more than just sort of.” Everyone knew it, even back in season one!

Technically, however, the actual first time they kissed was during their first case together which was flashbacked in the 100th episode; season 5 episode 16: 'The Parts of the Sum of the Whole'.

After agreeing to the psychologist’s suggestion that they finally talk about their relationship, Brennan goes as far out on the limb as she’s been since getting shot down earlier in the season, positing that “a time could come when you aren’t angry anymore and I’m strong enough to risk losing the last of my imperviousness.

Maybe then we could try to be together.” Booth suggests they each write down a date, before burning the slip of paper to release the wish into the universe. Whenever Booth’s old friend, psychologist-turned-chef Gordon Gordon Wyatt (Stephen Fry), is in town, it’s a good time for all.

The biggest, most romantic moment of this whole episode might be the introduction of fan favorite Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher), who will end up becoming perhaps the biggest Booth and Brennan shipper of all. Brennan’s two families come head-to-head during the trial of her father, Max Keenan (Ryan O’Neal), as every other member of the Jeffersonian team is called as expert witnesses for the prosecution.

However, the anthropologist plays it cool, insisting she’s fine to her co-workers, FBI psychologist Sweets (John Francis Daley), and even Booth as they all prepare to take the stand in support of evidence that Max killed the deputy director of the FBI.

After one last metaphor-heavy case, about a hoarder who died because he couldn’t let go of the past and love what was right in front of him, watching Brennan flee to the Maluku Islands and Booth ship off for a training mission in Afghanistan is gut-wrenching in itself, until Booth and Brennan’s first undercover episode -- as boisterous blue-collar Vegas tourists Tony and Roxie -- is rife with TV tropes, but it’s still one of their best, letting the pair turn their chemistry up a notch as they play at wise-cracking sweethearts while trying to piece together the murder of an underground fighter.

From Deschanel-as-Brennan’s pitch-perfect Roxie character, to her brash recklessness while confronting the Vegas mob, to the sweet and ingenious revelation that she used her beginner’s luck to bet on Booth’s A bright emotional spot in the otherwise heavy season five was the introduction of the late Ralph Waite as Booth’s grandfather, Hank, aka “Pops,” who shows up to provide some insight to Booth’s troubled past and -- after becoming the umpteeth person to see that his grandson and his “bone doctor” belong together -- help nudge the pair just a little closer.

The “will they or won’t they” couple’s final push towards “they will” wouldn’t have been complete without a classic “stuck-in-an-elevator” episode, and Bones’ comes with the added bonus of having the elevator be an old-school, open-air wrought-iron model, so Sweets can pop by from time to time and update Booth and Brennan on the case-of-the-week while also prying into their personal conversations.
