I don't either - with the logic, that is. Intrinsic in a job such as Angela's is the newness of each forensic mystery, and, in Angela's case, applying a new digital technology to its solving, which she's so good at. A more plausible reason, which Angela did mention at the beginning of this cycle, was that dealing with death day in and day out was beginning to get to her. Ok, that I can understand.
My Twitter friend and Bones fan Linda Geraghty mentioned to me that Michaela Conlin and T. J. Thyne have re-signed along with the rest of the cast for an 11th season, so there's really nothing to worry about. She's right - here's the announcement - so that leaves us with the enjoyable puzzle of how the apartment in Paris will reconcile with Angela and Hodgins continuing on the show.
Here are some possible solutions -
1. Events next week, in the season finale, get the two to change their minds. The serial killer striking from beyond the grave, which we've seen in the coming attractions, could somehow provide such a reason. Certainly the two would be safer in Washington than in Paris - could be better protected by the FBI - and they could lend a better hand in bringing to bay whatever evil has been leveled against them.
2. Angela and Hodgins do move to Paris, but help out in every case via Skype. This would also enable us to see them, off of Skype, in Paris, and could be the foundation of a Bones spinoff in Paris. (Hey, that could be a good show! I'm still thinking Hodgins and Angela could swing their own series.)
3. Angela and Hodgins disappear from Bones, but come back to Washington in an unexpected twist in the middle of next season, after we're no longer thinking about them. That could work, but I'd miss them in the beginning. (It was done with Joe Carroll in The Following this season, but that ended badly for everyone in the series, which was cancelled.)
In any case, I'm very much looking forward to both the 11th season and the 10th season finale next week, especially with Booth back in the fold, and the tantalizing hint that he may be giving up working on cases - which would be an intriguing path for the series to explore. Booth could well be thinking that it's his job that drives him to gambling ...
