Brennan from her position at the Jeffersonian, until both Angela and Booth make it abundantly clear if Brennan goes, the entire team will leave with her.In the episode entitled "The Man in the Cell", Camille is almost killed by a neurotoxin called Methyl Bromide to which she is exposed by serial killer Howard Epps when she was trying to cut into the forehead of the former Mrs Epps. Saroyan has an extreme emotional effect on both Brennan and Booth.
In the beginning of the second season, she butts heads with Dr.
Brennan and the team members, but eventually accepts their quirks and develops relationships with them.
In the season 2 episode, "The Headless Witch in the Woods", Cam states her mother, who died when she was 23, came to her the day after she died and led her to find a necklace in a drawer. In the season 3 episode of "The Pain in the Heart", it is revealed Dr.
Saroyan was a police officer for 10 years prior to obtaining her position in the Jeffersonian.
In season 4, Saroyan became concerned when Jared Booth, Seeley Booth's younger brother, went out on a date with Brennan and was relieved to hear the two did not have sex.
While Cam was not comfortable expressing why she felt this way, Angela was: "It would have been a creepy way to have sex with Booth, without having sex with the real Booth".
Luckily, Hodgins manages to find out what the toxin is and alerts the hospital in time to save Cam.
Originally, Saroyan was supposed to die in the episode, ending her character run, but the cast and producers received good reviews on the character of Camille Saroyan, thus decided to keep her.
Like all the other "squints", she is interested in Booth and Brennan's relationship.
She often overhears Booth and Brennan's telephone exchanges or overly intimate conversations, and smiles or shakes her head at their apparent obliquity and insistence their relationship is strictly platonic and professional.
She is clearly a very focused and intelligent woman, to go from being a police officer to a medical doctor specializing in forensic pathology.
