BONES 11×20 Stills: “The Stiff in the Cliff”

In “The Stiff in the Cliff,” airing on June 23, the team must solve a murder to protect one of their own. Which one? Thanks to the Bones 11×20 stills, you’ll find that out soon enough!

Per the press release, the team has to determine whether the death of famous billionaire Henry Charles (whose remains were just found in Antarctica) was murder or not. When (spoiler alert!) it’s confirmed he was killed on an expedition ten years prior, Clark is in the suspect shortlist, as he was also a member of the expedition. Elsewhere, Felicia Saroyan (now played by Raney Branch) comes into town to help her sister with the wedding planning, making some old family friction resurface.

The squintern of the week is Wendell, and Christine will also make an appearance.

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”…

BONES 11×05 Debriefing: “I Shall Not Rest Until It Is Solved”

When I first heard the Bones world would cross with Sleepy Hollow‘s, I was apprehensive as they couldn’t be more different. Bones is grounded in science and reality, while Sleepy Hollow leans towards the historic supernatural. However, the fact it’s a Halloween episode makes it easier to digest — plus, both shows do have some similarities the writers have explored well in tonight’s episode.

And the truth is, the crossover couldn’t have been smoother. Splitting Ichabod and Abbie with their Bones-y counterparts was smart, and allowed for a better flow.

So what happened during “The Resurrection in the Remains,” Bones‘ first Halloween hour in eight years?

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”!

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 10×14 Debriefing: “One in the Hole!”

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.

BONES 10×09 Debriefing: “I Got a High B in Chem Lab!”

After taking last week off due to Thanksgiving, Bones is back tonight with its 199th episode. In order to justify David Boreanaz’s directional turn next week, Booth (Boreanaz) had to deal with traffic school and as a result, Aubrey (John Boyd) partnered up with Brennan (Emily Deschanel).  Meanwhile, Wendell (Michael Grant Terry) started dating his (now-former) chemo nurse, Andie (Shalita Grant).

But let’s talk about “The Mutilation in the Master Manipulation” after the cut.

BONES 10×05 Debriefing: “Three cheers for modern science!”

bones cast s10

After taking last week off, Bones was back on our TV screens with the fun “The Corpse at the Convention,” featuring the return of Brennan’s (Emily Deschanel) author rival Tess Brown (Nora Dunn of SNL fame) and the reappearance of Wendell (Michael Grant Terry), who as you might recall upon last viewing was entering an experimental clinical trial that used medical cannabis.

So, how is Wendell doing? Who killed the Ginger at the Convention? And more importantly, did Brennan’s Schrödinger joke bomb?

Let’s follow the team along as they attend the 19th National Forensic Science Convention.
