Last week on Bones, we met the Jeffersonian’s newest intern — an oh-so-polite and unmistakeably Southern boy named Finn Abernathy (Luke Kleintank).

His past certainly isn’t squeaky clean. Finn grew up with an abusive stepfather … until dear old stepdad mysteriously went missing one day. But is Finn really a murderer? In Bones Season 7, Episode 2: “The Hot Dog in the Competition” , he assures Brennan (Emily Deschanel) he had nothing to do with it.

With his cute backwoods accent, whip-smart intellect, and eagerness to succeed— Finn is sure to be a fun new member of the Jeffersonian team. Right after last week’s episode, we asked what you thought of Bones’ newest Squintern.

Well, the results are in! Find out the Bones’ fan consensus:

What Do You Think of Bones’ New Squintern, Finn?

58% said — “Love him. And that Southern drawl is awesome!”
27% said — “He’s okay. Not my favorite yet — but let’s give it time!”
13% said — “Not a fan. Let’s just stick with the Squinterns we’ve got.”

Looks like the majority of you are definite Finn fans! A fair amount of you still want a bit of time to get to know him ... but hardly anyone thinks he should just go away.

So Finn is here to stay, and Bones fans — for the most part — seem pretty on board with the quirky new character. Sounds good to us! We can’t wait to see what happens next.
