BONES 11×08 Stills: “High Treason in the Holiday Season”

Halloween has passed and gone, which means… the holiday season is upon us! And to celebrate, Bones will have its first ever Thanksgiving episode on November 19.

As per the press release, the team will investigate the murder of a high-powered political journalist who had recently published an article exposing corruption in the NSA. This obviously riles resident conspiracy theorist Hodgins up, as the team realizes their every move is being watched. On a happier note, Brennan is secretly planning a surprise for Booth, and the team will celebrate Thanksgiving together.

The squintern of the week is Rodolfo Fuentes and the kids (Christine, Michael Vincent and yes, Parker!) will make an appearance as well.

Is it fair to let your past taint your future? We usually improve upon our past mistakes so that we can become better people, but there are instances where those mistakes come back to haunt us.

It’s not surprising that a murdered senator would have a secret biological daughter he did not want anyone knowing about. The characters we care for? They have plenty of those skeletons hanging around in their closet, too, so it’s not a shock that Jessica has been involved with Greenpeace and the like in the past.

Tonight’s episode did not fully delve into this but it was resonant enough to stick with me. Read on for more thoughts on that and a recap after the break!

Not even escape artists can avoid death.

In November 12’s Bones, our victim is a magician who couldn’t escape death, as his body was found in the woods. As an employee of the Magic Palace, the team discovers he might have made some enemies along the way. On the personal side, Booth and Brennan poll their friends on whether the Tooth Fairy should pay Christine a visit, and Sebastian Kohl (the photographer we saw in Bones 11×03) is helping Angela with her photography.

Click through for the Bones 11×07 stills! The episode airs on November 12 at 8/7c.

Only Booth and Brennan would deal with a case that dipped its feet into the organ harvesting world on their first day back, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

The show returned to its usual, procedural-y formula tonight with an interesting case with a powerful ethical debate as its center, and added its usual share of great character stories that perfectly complimented it.

Let’s discuss all the things that happened during Bones 11×03, “The Donor in the Drink”!

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 10×16 Debriefing: “I Bet This Was Delicious Once”

(c) FOX

Bones just made history by airing its 206th episode. As studio head Gary Newman pointed out in the cake cutting celebration for the 200th, at 206 episodes, the show becomes the longest running drama FOX Studios has ever produced. If you know some anatomy, you might also know that 206 is the number of bones in the human body.

Pretty cool, huh?

The show celebrated the milestone by mentioning every single ones of those bones  during the episode.  FOX, for their part, had a really fun way to complement this:  #BonesBingo! (Did you play along?)

The episode itself was a solid outing that gave us some behind-the-scenes glimpses at Booth and Brennan’s beloved Royal Diner. It also, surprisingly, touched on all the recently launched storylines and offered us some surprising developments.

BONES 10×14 Debriefing: “One in the Hole!”

bones cast s10

Tonight’s Bones had different takes on family matters (more specifically, heirlooms of sorts): Brennan and Max or, to a lesser extent Wendell and Andie… It’s funny the meaning each family ascribes to its possessions.

Before we get to that, we have to talk about how competitive the world of mini-golf turns out to be. I will actually let Brennan do the talking here, because she nails it:

But let’s follow along to see what “The Putter in the Rough” had in store for us.
