When Bones last left off, we found out that Hodgins (TJ Thyne) was paralyzed from the waist down after an explosion. Tonight at 8p, the Fox procedural is back and we find out how he is doing.
The episode starts off 8 weeks later and he is finally being released from the hospital. Even though the doctors told him to take it easy, his first stop is the Jeffersonian. As soon as he gets there, they are working on a case and he insists on helping out. He might think he is ready, but Angela (Michaela Conlin) doesn’t. She believes in following the doctors orders and this causes tension between them.
In fact, he is not the same guy he was before the explosion and everyone feels like they are walking on egg shells around him. How will he handle his new limitations on the job? How will everyone handle working in the tense environment with him? Can Angela and his marriage survive his understandable frustration? Do you have enough tissues to get through the episodes?
The last question is most important for you because you are going to need them. Bones is back in a powerful way and the actors and the writers are really delivering. They could’ve just had Hodgins come back to work in a wheelchair and have everything be OK, but they are not doing that. They are showing the emotional toll it takes on everyone when someone is suddenly left paralyzed. This episode is sad, but next week’s is a real tear jerker. Ones you don’t want to miss.
Bones is the little show that could, and next season will be its last. Fox announced today that they picked up the procedural for a 12-episode 12th and final season.
While the news is sad, it is 12 more episodes than many of us thought we would get after the show’s producers and stars sued the network for back pay they claim they are owed. When news of the lawsuits broke, many people assumed that the show would be ending this season. Thankfully the long running drama will get the sendoff it deserves. And that better mean that Bones and Booth will ride off into the sunset together.
Tonight’s is the Bones midseason finale on Fox at 8p and it last two hours, but the final two minutes are the most important.
For the first hour, they find a body that looks like it spent some time at the Wild Wild West, but how is that possible? That’s because he took part in something called The Frontier Games that is throwback to that time. Now Booth (David Boreanaz) and Bones (Emily Deschanel) will go undercover to solve his murder. Giddy up cowboy because it is going to be one heck of a ride.
Then at 9p, as Aubrey (John Boyd), Cam (Tamara Taylor) and Hodgins (T.J Thyne) are investigating a body that was found in a parking lot, they realize it has a bomb attached to it. As soon as they come to that realization, it explodes and two of them are rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries. Things are not looking good for them.
Their colleagues are not going to let this crime go unsolved and will work diligently to find the killer. The more they look into the murderer, the more they realize that he is after authority figures. That will cause one of them to become a sacrificial lamb.
Can the team find out who the killer is before one of them is killed? Like I said not everyone will walk away from tonight’s second episode, so you don’t want to miss it.
When Fox announced that Bones and Sleepy Hollow were going to do a crossover episode, I was so like whaaaaaat? Then I watched the 2 hour event and I was surprised how brilliantly it worked.
Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) are called to investigate a body found at an abandoned church. While they are looking at her remains, they discover an iron coffin with a headless Red Coat soldier in it. Who is this mystery Revolutionary war victim? Mills (Nicole Beharie) and Crane (Tom Mison) travel down to DC to help identify him. The bones don’t lie it is someone Crane knows, just not who they thought it was.
Now, the four of them are going to try to solve the modern day murder and why she was left near Crane’s old friend. Ichabod wants to bring the bones back to Sleepy Hollow, but Bones doesn’t want to let him have them. When he discovers evidence that might prove the bones are his, he might have revealed his true identity. Will the Jeffersonian find out the truth about him?
Once the murder in DC is solved, the crossover moves to Sleepy Hollow. Crane brings the bones back with him and they come alive when they are home. The Red Coat needs to be stopped before he continues the killing spree he started almost 250 years ago. Will they be able kill the undead soldier?
While both shows did a great job with the two hour event, the Bones hour is so much better. I hope that the Sleepy Hollow writers watch Bones and see how they can improve the show and bring some of humor back to it. The conversions between Bones and Crane will remind you what the Sleepy Hollow has been missing since the first season.
Bones and Sleepy Hollow are back with new seasons tonight on Fox starting at 8p and both shows are back on track.
Bones picks up 6 months after the season finale. Booth (David Boreanaz) and Bones (Emily Deschanel) are enjoying their retired life and their brand new son. Even though they don’t have daily jobs, Booth is doing some freelance work, training FBI agents, and he starts off the episode going to work.
The Jeffersonian gets a call to investigate a murder. A body was found badly burned in a building, and they can’t identify the person but they do discover a gun attached to the remains. When Angela (Michaela Conlin) checks out the gun’s serial number, she discovers it belongs to Booth. Not only that, the body has a lot of similarities to him. Is it him?
Bones returns to The Jeffersonian to help look over remains and determine if it is her husband. While everyone else is trying to get to bottom of it.
Some things will be answered tonight and some will be answered during next week’s conclusion to this 2-part exciting and emotional story.
Then at 9p, Sleepy Hollow picks up 9 months later. Crane (Tom Mison) returns to Sleepy Hollow from his soul searching trip, just in time for another horseman to ride into town. He has been imprisoned by immigration and Mills (Nicole Beharie) bails him out. She has been working for the FBI since he left. When they hear that something is going on in Sleepy Hollow, the Witnesses get back into action.
Who is haunting Sleepy Hollow? We will have to tune in every week to find out.
Not only that, the humor is back. Tonight, Mills and Crane go to Colonial Times and Ichabod is disgusted by all of it. I missed the humor and I am glad it is back.
David Boreanaz‘s wife Jamie caught her husband outside in just a robe and slippers and his expression is priceless. You would think she photographed him doing something so much worse than whatever he did. But maybe he did do something so much worse, so tell me what you think it was?
Last week Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Hodgins (TJ Thyne) announced that they are leaving DC for Paris and tonight at 9p on Fox some more people announce that they are leaving the Jeffersonian. Before we find out who else departing, they have to solve the case that proves that even though Pelant is dead that doesn’t mean he done torturing Bones (Emily Deschanel) and the people around her.
How is he haunting them from the grave? You will just have to tune in to see it to believe it. While doing some research about the case, Angela makes a discovery that can change everything for everyone. How will she handle her discovery?
Then when the case is solved it is time to find out who is going to say and who is going to go? Not everything goes as you expect it to, so be prepared to be shocked and surprised. Also have the tissues ready because you will be shedding some tears during this episode that could’ve served as a series finale if it needed to be. But it isn’t, so don’t worry.
