Bones is back! After a monthlong break for sports games and presidential debates, Booth (David Boreanaz), Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and the crew made their long-awaited return to our TV screens for Season 8, Episode 5: "The Method to the Madness."

There were gross corpses — specifically, a mutilated and discarded body found in city garbage can — lots of murder and mystery hijinks, and plenty of cute Booth and Brennan moments. It’s the same Bones we’ve come know and love. Now, can someone please make Hodgins (TJ Thyne) set down that severed foot? We’re starting to feel a little queasy!

Let’s not forget about all the insanity that went down as soon as Booth invited Sweets (John Francis Daley) to move in with he and Dr. B — and without asking her permission first, we might add. Lots of awkwardness, a bit of shirtlessness, and general underwear awesomeness followed. Also: Can you give us a moment? We just might need to add superhero undies to our Christmas wish list.

You’ve seen Bones’ first episode back after the break, now we want to know what you think. Did the night’s show live up to all your expectations, or did you find yourself feeling like it still lacked something in the end? Head down to the poll and sound off.
