Perhaps history’s most infamous criminal, Jack the Ripper, will be invoked in Bones Season 8 reports TV Guide — and, forgive us, but we couldn’t be more excited for all the macabre, old-timeyness that this episode will surely bring!
According to show exec Stephen Nathan, Brennan(Emily Deschanel) and Booth(David Boreanaz) will investigate murders occurring in a hipster enclave that embrace the lifestyle of the 1890’s (cue this sketch from Portlandia, natch). Stephen explains, "They're in a completely different world, with handlebar mustaches and suspenders." To keep the throwback scene authentic, there’s even a killer on the loose within the community. Stephen says, "Booth and Brennan will have to discover if someone is mimicking Jack the Ripper."
Emily Deschanel sees the potential in the plot line, noting, "Brennan will have a field day with this, because it's like discovering a tribe that hasn't been touched by modern society." While David Boreanaz’s first concern was for his facial hair: "I wonder if I'll have mutton chops." Please let there be mutton chops.
