Heads up, Bones fans. ScreenSpy has a zipped bag full of Bones tidbits (and occasional pieces of skin) to share with you before the show’s new time period premiere on March 10.
“The Source in the Sludge” finds Temperance and Seeley taking on the CIA itself when their latest find (a lamprey-laden body fished out of a local lake) clashes with an ongoing investigation by the other team. Cue the return of sexy Danny Beck (guest star Freddie Prinze Jr.), and some serious back-and-forth over just who dunnit with this one.
What can we dish? We’ve come up with 5 things to look out for in “The Source in the Sludge” that will whet your appetite for the main event next Monday. Or turn you off your lunch today.
1. Danny’s Back
Danny Beck is back, but his latest encounter with Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) won’t be as smooth as last time. Danny’s in the middle of a top secret investigation involving missing CIA informants, dangerous terrorists … and something else that makes Booth deeply uncomfortable. Watch as one man digs for the truth while the other does his best to keep it hidden. One word guys. Loggerheads!
2. The Biggest Liability?
They’re at it again! Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth spend their off moments bickering (adorably) about who’s job is more dangerous when Temperance discovers her life insurance premium is higher than her husband’s. Does her higher premium really mean she’s “not as exceptional” as Seeley? Bones really seems to think so. This one may take some working through.
3. Daisy’s Dilemma
Daisy Wick (Carla Gallo) is also back … but sadly not on top form in “The Source in the Sludge.” Is it Temperance’s exacting standards that makes her so nervous and prone to mistakes, or is she hiding a secret? Hint: she’s definitely hiding a secret, but as it turns out, she might have more in common with Temp than she imagines. Let it out, Daisy!
4. Why is Sweets Like a Lamprey?
Aww! Angela (Michaela Conlin) pays Sweets (TJ Thyne) the highest compliment by comparing him to a 360 million year old invertebrate this week. find out why Sweets is just like a lamprey on Monday.
5. Freedom Will Be Our Reward
Monday’s episode of Bones definitely skews towards the bleak side. As the investigation heats up, the audience may not like where its headed. With an episode that could really go either way, we found ourselves changing sides over and over again. In the end, it’s Booth who nails the case. And the bad guy.
5. A heart and Throat-Warming Ending
After the darkness we’ll need a little relief. Trust Booth to see the difference between a wife and a business partner – and how to gift each appropriately. Nicely done.
Catch Bones in its new time period on Monday, March 10 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
