Bones season 8 continues on Monday, February 11 with what looks to be another very emotional episode, called "The Shot in the Dark." Check out the previews below to find out what happens when Brennan goes back to the lab after she and Booth have an argument. 



In the first preview episode, we find Booth and Brennan at home with little Christine. Much as we've seen many times before, the two are having a difference of opinion when it comes to the raising of their child, but this time things escalate beyond what we usually see. 

Here are a few more things we know from the video:

  • Booth wants to take the family camping but Brennan doesn't think it's necessarily a good thing for Christine. 
  • Brennan doesn't believe that Christine will ever remember the trip, but Booth thinks it will build memories. 
  • Booth wants Brennan to be more spontaneous, but I doubt he expects the kind of spontaneity she ends up doing. 


In the second preview video, we find Brennan back at the lab when she hears a noise and assumes that it is Hal. But it's soon obvious that it is not Hal, when she is shot. Booth arrives to apologize for things he said earlier and is horrified to find her on the floor unconscious and bleeding. 

Here are a few more things we know from the video:

  • Not sure if it will turn out to be relevant, but the victim Brennan is examining appears to have died in a fall. Could the shooter be related to her current case?
  • The goggles that Brennan wears prevent her from seeing her attacker. 
  • Brennan may argue that Christine doesn't understand what happening at 14 months, but she still starts crying when she sees her father kneeling over her bleeding mother. 


In the final clip from the episode, Brennan wakes up to find herself in an alternate reality speaking with her dead mother. She of course tries to rationalize it scientifically, but her mother has a different idea of where they might be. 

Here are a few more things we know from the video:

  • Brennan helped her mother pick out the ugly couch in their house because she said she liked the flowers. 
  • Brennan's mom agrees that her daughter has changed. 
  • Brennan's mom is honored to find out that her granddaughter is named after her. 

What do you think now that you've seen clips from this episode of Bones? How do you think Brennan's talk with her mother will affect her? Got any theories on who attacked Brennan?

Bones airs on Monday nights at 8pm on FOX.
