BONES 12×11 Stills: “The Day in the Life”

The end is nigh.

You’ll easily realize this seeing the events in the stills, and reading the synopsis for the episode. It’s hard to believe it’s all happening.

“The Day in the Life” airs on March 21st at 9/8c on FOX. In the penultimate episode, the characters’ final story begins to unfold – in many cases, it’s the payoff for their season-long storylines: Brennan testifies in Zack’s trial, Aubrey and Jessica come to terms with their future together, Angela has some big news. (And based on the fact Felicia and Michelle are back, it’s safe to say that Cam and Arastoo might finally make it official – see: all those twinkly lights.) Not everything is happy or hopeful: the team also finds out Kovac has escaped, so Booth will try to protect himself and those closest to him from Kovac’s most dangerous plan yet. (You can read the entire press release here.)

Some other people present in the episode are Avalon Harmonia (played by the wonderful Cyndi Lauper), Caroline,Christine and Karen!

BONES 11×18 Stills: “The Movie in the Making”

Michael Peterson and the other writers have described “The Movie in the Making” as a mix of Modern Family and Making a Murderer. If you caught a glimpse of the promo that aired after last week’s really solid episode, you had seen what they meant… If not, you can also see that in the Bones 11×18 stills below.

According to the press release, a documentary crew producing a tv segment on the Jeffersonian follows the team during a “typical” case (body found in a landfill, buried more than a decade ago). The camera crew captures normally unseen footage of the team at work, while the team provides some candid commentary providing some unique insight into the case as Brennan and co. prove their expertise and importance to the case, while Booth and Aubrey show their skills on the field.

You can check the rest here. Arastoo is this week’s intern, and Christine also makes an appearance. For the Bones 11×18 stills, click through!

BONES 11×10 Debriefing: Fate Dealt You a Tricky Hand

 

This is way overdue. We know, we know.

The fact two episodes aired the same night, coupled with exams, made uploading this recap difficult. Add in Christmas travels (and the holiday itself), and it was not a good time to upload this at all. We decided to save it for a bit until the spring premiere, thinking it would be in early March (or late March, at the latest) and boy, were we wrong. Enough with excuses, though.

It’s mid-April and the show is finally coming back this week after four months off the air. (And little promotion to anyone watching on TV, ahem.) The previous episode ended with Angela and Hodgins at odds about expanding their family, and Cam opting to finally give Sebastian a serious chance.

Needless to say, this episode is a doozy. There is an inherent, underlying tension because you know things are going too well, and they are certainly not going to be like that by the end of the double-header. The events were pretty hyped, and we got plenty of reminders this was supposed to be the season opener until they decided to scrap that.

Let’s just recap what happened in Bones 11×10, “The Doom in the Boom”…

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 10×19 Debriefing: All For Love

(c) FOX

You can tell that, in a different television season, Murder in the Middle East” would have been an excellent episode to kick this Sweeps month off, as well as the last four episodes of the season. Not only did it include “international” travel (shot somewhere in the Los Angeles area, of course) but it also has the dramatic climax of the gambling storyline, after a few weeks of intense rising action.

This is not meant to diminish what has actually aired during May Sweeps (which end next Wednesday) in any way. The pregnancy, a milestone, as well as the action-packed episodes  that aired last week have been good entries: this last third of the season has packed a punch. Yet, I can only imagine the actual last four episodes of the season are the ones we should be watching for.

Tonight’s outing was a gripping hour of television that mostly focused on solving a murder overseas, so the team could free one of their own. The episode also featured Brennan confronting her husband’s gambling addiction and lies — leading up to a surprising, but reasonable, conclusion (in an emotional cliffhanger).

Let’s talk about Bones 10×19, “The Murder in the Middle East”!

BONES 10×13 Debriefing: “Make sure you come back”

One of my favorite things about Bones is that there is always some thematic connection between all (or, at least, most) of its stories in an episode. Tonight’s episode made sure to remark that, even the apparent worst situations might not be what they appear, and can have some good in them. Booth (David Boreanaz) and Connor (Mario Perez) were innocent men who went to prison and were changed by it; Arastoo (maybe naively) idealizes Iran, saying there might be virtue outside of the government. The first two men went to prison, whereas Arastoo (Pej Vahdat) is now risking his own freedom. (Another theme in tonight’s episode? You don’t turn your back on family.)

Combine that with an intense case, and you get a good episode — I am kind of intrigued to see where this storyline goes, if it comes back again.

Follow me along for a recap of what happened tonight.

BONES 10×06 Debriefing: “She was my heart”

bones cast s10

Tonight’s Bones, dealing with human trafficking, reminded us that we are very lucky to have what we have, and how others have not been as fortunate.

The show is not one to do serious episodes often (even if this season was off to a darker-than-usual start) but when it does, it usually makes it count.

So click ahead for a recap of what went down on “The Love Lost in the Foreign Land.”
