Buckles your seat belts, ladies and gents! Next week’s Bones looks to be a wild ride. And we’re not talking about the...er, canine opening “action” sequence between Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel). No, we’ll be entering tornado-zone come December 9, as the Jeffersonian team is going to chase after the killer of a storm-chaser. (Although from the look of things, the top of an old windmill is going to end up chasing Booth!)

And if this preview is any indicator, we can expect more of the classic whirlwind humor we’ve come to love on Bones. Booth, who seems to prefer a more terrestrial kind of danger, can only label storm-chasers as “insane.”  And when one of these twister-enthusiasts revels in the power of Mother Nature, all Brennan can do is shake her head with disdain and say, quite matter-of-factly, “Mother Nature...is not real.”

Man oh man — we’re on the edge of our seats already, and this one’s not for another week!  Don’t forget to tune in!
