BONES 11×11 Debriefing: “You’re Essential to Me”

Welcome back, Bones!

It is strange that the show is returning just as May Sweeps (the traditional end to the television season) are about to start. It’s even crazier to think that the show will be running until late July, too.

It’s been a bit over four months since we last saw our favorite squints, but only eight weeks have passed in Bones time. After the shocking ending to the midseason finale, the spring premiere opens with Hodgins being discharged from the hospital. He’s jarringly happy and hopeful — basically, in perfect denial.

The episode went all in with showing us Hodgins’ current struggle, and it shone a light into his and Angela’s relationship. I especially liked the storyline was not put into the background, rather than have it be in the backburner. It is such a big event in the characters’ lives, and it would have been a disservice to just focus on some other trivial thing. This is a show that prides itself in having such great actors with developed characters, and that is definitely felt here: as the close family they are, every character has a very distinct and emotional reaction to Hodgins’ condition.

So, let’s discuss that, and other things that went down on Bones 11×11, “The Death in the Defense”…

… is a young graduate student that has been way too passionate about television ever since she was little. While she insists she doesn’t have a specific type of show, they all usually have strong but flawed lady characters, some derivation of the stubborn friends-in-love/friends-to-lovers trope, and they all make her yell at her tv a lot. She just wishes she had more hours in the day so she could actually write about this.

BONES 11×11 Stills: “The Death in the Defense”

Ah, long time no see!

After what has felt like forever, Bones will be returning to our TVs in less than 10 days! A few weeks after announcing its April return, the show was renewed for a shortened, and final, season next year. Bittersweet news!

By the way, if you are still waiting for the recap for the second part of the fall finale — look for that early next week! It’s been waiting to be posted for months now, but we felt like it would be a good refresher to have before the spring premiere. We just didn’t expect the spring premiere to be in mid April.

But let’s get to it.

The spring premiere, is airing on Thursday, April 14th at 8/7c. “The Death in the Defense” picks up eight weeks into Hodgins’ rehabilitation for his tragic paralysis. The case itself will find the team investigating the death of a public defender, who had plenty of past defendants with motives to kill her.

If you think this is the kind of case that would bring Caroline back to our screens, that’s correct! The squintern of the week is Wendell. You can find the rest of the press release here.

Without farther ado, here are the Bones 11×11 stills!
