If you need something to pique your interest in The Finder, which will take over for Bones during Emily Deschanel (Brennan’s) maternity leave in January, then have we got the dirt for you! After all, our favorite Bones stars shouldn’t stop working just because Deschanel had a baby, right?
With that in mind, TV Guide has a great dirt installment on TJ Thyne (Hodgins') upcoming stint on The Finder. Wryly labeling the Hodgins appearance as “out of this world,” contributor Adam Bryant elaborates that our favorite king of the lab will soon be up to his elbows in alien-invasion conspiracy theories.
In this case, Hodgins is in the middle of investigating a “former space shuttle pilot who claims to have seen a UFO during one of his final flights”...when the witness’s co-pilot suddenly kicks the bucket. Perhaps understandably, this forces Hodgins’s lead into hiding, but Hodgins will have none of that — so now it’s up to Walter (Geoff Shults) to track the guy down.
It’s good to know that our guys will keep busy during Bones’s winter hiatus. After all, after waiting all these months for the show to start, we might have trouble getting our hearts to start after another two Bones-less months!
