From the Bones spoilers we're seeing for Season 7, Episode 17, it looks like Brennan (Emily Deschanel) might just be going a little off the deep end.

Just when we thought there were no reverberating effects from her gunshot wound, Brennan starts drinking the Hodgins Kool-Aid.

In the promo for Season 8, Episode 17, “The Fact in the Fiction,” the doc starts seriously considering her new squintern’s theory about a body they’re examining. Evidently Oliver Wells (Brian Klugman) is too brilliant to be ignored.

Though Brennan finds his know-it-all attitude annoying at first, she can’t deny the allure of... time travel? No wonder Booth (David Boreanaz) seems a little worried about her.

Check out the promo and the full synopsis below.

“When extremely educated new intern Dr. Oliver Wells starts working at the Jeffersonian, his quick-learning, enthusiastic personality challenges Brennan as he gets under her skin with his eccentric but undeniable observations, causing her to try to be more open-minded about many scientific questions. Meanwhile, Booth worries she may have gone too far when she accepts the possibility of time travel as a factor in a murder investigation.”
