Sometimes we get to the point where there are so many sneak peeks out for a given episode that we feel like the episode has aired already! But alas, Bones’s six installment of Season 7 is no such case; we’ve got a whopping three clips to presage the episode, and yet we’re nowhere near satisfied! Oh well... we guess that means the promo people are doing their job right.
Our first clip sets the scene nicely, with Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) engaging in a moving-car edition of their perennial house-hunting argument. Booth wants a man-cave; Brennan wants an “anthropologist cave.” (Hey, we figure if “man cave” can get into the popular lexicon, what’s to stop “anthropologist cave” from doing the same?) Throw in “a perfect baby’s room,” and it’s no surprise that these two can’t find a house!
Then it’s over to the crime scene, in a clip we’re at least somewhat. We’re kind of disappointed in all the characters who aren’t Brennan for not making any Ronald Reagan connections to “where’s the rest of me?” — after all, we’re well aware that Brennan has no cultural aptitude whatsoever, but come on! Booth? Anyone? Bueller?
Anyway, it turns out that the “dissected” spine is more complicated than it appeared at first blush — not only did the killer do some surgical wizardry in taking the spine out, but he also reattached the vertebrae in the wrong order. Could that be a clue? Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find that out.
The final clip features our beloved baby-faced Sweets (John Francis Daley) theorizing as to why Mr. Unnamed (at least to the squints) Killer would raid the FBI blood bank to write his grisly crimson message. And it looks like Brennan has decided to abandon such fun-filled activities as tornado-chasing while pregnant — she’s actually listening to Sweets (to Sweets’s astonishment!) and keeping to the lab as long as Baby Bones is kicking in the womb.
So there you have it: a pretty good glimpse of the first ten minutes or so of tomorrow’s Bones. Appetites whetted yet? If not, take a look at our spoiler round-ups and see if that doesn’t leave you salivating!
