You guys know who Agent Genny Shaw (Tina Majorino) is by now, right? We’ve tried to make a point of mentioning any bit of news about her that comes our way, because let’s face it: the plucky rookie FBI agent who loves nothing better than to please Booth (David Boreanaz) has straight-up charmed us.

So what can we expect of our dear Agent Shaw in Season 7? Well, Bones executive producer Stephen Nathan teases that we’ll “learn a little bit more about her in this episode[.]” Which episode exactly is up in the air, but we know it’s going to be “after Brennan [Emily Deschanel] gives birth.” Unfortunately for Shaw fans (there must be some), the doe-eyed agent’s Bones future may well be in the crosshairs. It’s pilot season, after all, which is when bit-part actors get snapped up for more promising projects. (Remember Mister Nigel-Murray, anyone?)

In other “upcoming episode” news, E! Online provides us with some juicy plot details: namely, sometime after the long break, Brennan’s going to have the relationship challenge of a lifetime in the form of a real smooth talker. This guy’s going to “be all over Bones,” trying to “come between the parents-to-be!” The catch? Well, he’s seventy-five years old... and he’s a murder suspect. So we can kind of expect Brennan to keep her cool on this one — though we’re not sure how Booth will handle the competition.
