Previously on Bones, Christopher Pelant killed a lot of people, framed Brennan for killing more people, and then stole all of Hodgins’ money. But Booth shot his face up pretty good. Now he’s back in a Batcave style setup, stalking them.
Tonight, Bones is preempted by Outbreak! Only with less Dustin Hoffman.
Best. Title. Ever. Strippers and stockbrokers and Booth’s mom… oh my!
In a seemingly abandoned building, a couple searches through a mushroom mound, looking for a treasure hunt clue. They definitely find something, but it’s not treasure, it’s a human skull.
We go straight to the body of the week with a meaty body left in a car for 5 days. The remains have decayed in two different ways due to microclimates. Booth checks out the trunk and finds a sawed-off shotgun with no serial number.
First auction hunters, now doomsday preppers? Is the Bones writing staff watching too much TLC?
An ex-Wall Street guy plows a field of kale (of course it’s kale. Does kale even grow near DC?) and finds something not so green. He doesn’t know how to stop his tractor, so the body is brought up on the wheel’s spikes. Brennan is not going to like that.
A homeless guy comes into a pawn shop with a mud-caked suitcase. He wants at least four dollars for it, but the shop owner won’t give him anything. He cracks it open and there’s a gooey, disgusting corpse. He lowers his request to fifty cents.
This week on Bones: Angela goes undercover, Booth gets shady, and a Squintern has a birthday.
Daisy’s back and death is on the mind of the Jeffersonian crew, even more than normal. I didn’t intend for those two to sound related, but we’ll go with it.
Pelant is back and targeting Angela and Hodgins this time.
Before we start on this recap, a bit of news: Bones has been renewed for a NINTH season! And all the current cast are signed on to stay on board (with no contract drama, aren’t they the best?).
Dancing phalanges in the air for the fact that Bones is back! And with two new episodes, both of which I felt pretty darn good about.
Bones tries something new for its 150th episode and, well, it doesn’t quite work, in my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
A clumsy street artist spills his bucket of glue while vandalizing a billboard and then manages to fall off the billboard himself. Fortunately for him, landing on a dead body seems to break his fall. Unfortunately, he’s now stuck to it with industrial strength adhesive.
