BETTY WHITE.

That’s it, that’s all you should know about this episode.

Just kidding. “The Carpals in the Coy-Wolves,” airing on October 22 at 8/7c, has more than the Emmy-winner going for it… It also has a Superbowl Champion (Ronde Barber)!

Per the press release, when the remains of a real estate agent are found, seemingly destroyed by coyote-wolf hybrid, Brennan enlists Dr. Beth Mayer’s (Betty White’s character) help — not only is Dr. Mayer very accomplished, but she is also very knowledgeable about the fantasy football world, a key part of Ross’ past. Moreover, as Booth and Aubrey dig into this, they find he had a Twitter feud with NFL star Lou Drivers (played by Ronde Barber) and was also owed a large sum of money from the league’s commissioner. Meanwhile, Brennan resists feeling competitive as Mayer impresses everyone with her expertise.

The squintern this week? Oliver Wells.

Bones picked up right where last week’s intense premiere left off, and answered the questions we asked. What has Miller been hiding? Will Booth make it out? (Spoiler alert: duh) What is going to happen with Arastoo, and his relationship with Cam?

This episode also seemed to hint at possible future storylines and the themes the show will explore this year. But let’s go ahead and discuss what transpired during Bones 11×02…

BONES 10×22 Debriefing: “Change is Good, Right?”

(c) FOX

A little over five years ago, the team went their separate ways as a result of Booth and Brennan needing time and space between them; seven months into their planned absence, they returned to help their friend in need. Tonight, they now leave their jobs for the unknown, to have some quiet family time together. After the struggles they’ve faced, can we blame them? The biggest question to be answered now is, how will they come back to this life they want to put behind them? We’ll have to tune in come fall to find out.

There are similarities with season five’s finale “The Beginning in the End” — and I’m not referring to all the hugging and sadness. There are now five years (possibly more, in the show’s timeline) of personal growth and evolution, in which everything has changed and that’s reflected in their decisions — not only Booth and Brennan’s, but Hodgins and Angela’s.

There’s been much chatter around the fact the episode feels like the end but isn’t; how Stephen Nathan and the writers were told to write towards a series finale just in case, even if chances were they were coming back. This episode has a sense of finality to it that works, and I cannot imagine how they could have ended it differently.

Before I get too far ahead of myself (this should not be the lengthy last part of this recap!), let’s discuss Bones 10×22 “The Next in the Last” (or is it “The End in the End” again?) and some of the points above more in depth after the break…

BONES 10×21 Debriefing: “Life is Essentially Uncertain”

(c) FOX

Having the penultimate episode of the season deal with the murder of a yoga instructor was clever. Among many things, the discipline allows you to control your body and mind, through breathing and relaxation techniques. This episode is in many ways doing that for the audience: it’s calming in its resolutions, reminding us that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

There are times in life when you get through a rough patch and you barely have a respite before being hit with something unexpectedly worse — but you dig deep within yourself and eventually grow as a result of it. This has been true of the show this past season: for such a normally joyous and escapist show, this season of Bones has been pretty gloomy. Yes, there was a stretch hallways through in which the sadness wasn’t as present (with some actual relief in the middle), but the heartbreaking third seems to be approaching its end, just in time for the finale to shake it all up.

In this episode, how do the characters deal with the past year’s trauma? Booth is about to celebrate his 30-day-sober milestone and working hard to regain Brennan’s trust. Hodgins and Angela are actually putting the money where their dreams are and moving to Paris.

Before I make this way too long, let’s recap Bones 10×21, “The Life in the Light.”

BONES 10×17&10×18 Debriefing: “Later Is Not a Guarantee”

(c) FOX

FOX aired two al- new Bones episodes tonight, both dealing, one way or another, with various people pondering their future and their lives in crime-fighting — are all the risks and everything that has happened in the past year(s) worth it?

Nonetheless, I was glad to have two hours of the show back-to-back, especially since both episodes/cases were so solid. This last third of the season is proving to be really strong.
