Bones season 8 continues on Monday, February 25 with an episode called "The Fact in the Fiction." Check out the clips from the episode below to find out what happens when the Smithsonian welcomes a new intern that just might be Brennan's match in more ways than one. 



In the first preview clip, we find Booth and Brennan hanging at their favorite coffee shop when a very disheveled man comes in and says he has a "surprise" for Brennan. Considering what the love of his life has just been through, Booth immediately draws his weapon on the man, but it turns out the guy isn't who he seems at first. 

Here are a few more things we know from watching the clip:

  • The new guy knows his weapons. 
  • Booth is right; there are definitely not flowers in the guy's bag. 
  • I really, really shouldn't eat breakfast while watching these clips. Hello, disembodied, bloodied head. 


In the second preview clip, we find Booth and Brennan walking out to the crime scene and having a very interesting conversation. Seems Booth wants to invest in their family's future by doing something called asteroid mining. I think you can probably guess how enthusiastic Brennan is for that idea. 

Here are a few more things we know from watching the clip:

  • When Brennan gives Booth a certain look, he thinks she looks like a schoolteacher. 
  • Brennan is truly baffled as to why the farmer would run over their remains. 
  • Brennan may be against it, but Hodgins (of course) agrees with Booth's crazy idea. 
  • Cam is not as opposed to Booth's idea as you might think she would be. 
  • According to Brennan, getting an ID without a head is easier than capturing an asteroid. 


In the third preview clip, Brennan walks into the lab to see that her new intern (aka the guy with the head from the first clip) is doing something very naughty. You'd think she'd be more shocked he brought her a severed head earlier, but her real beef is with the fact that he's now eating in her lab. 

Here are a few more things we know from watching the clip:

  • Dr. Wells (the new intern) always eats string cheese when he's in a conundrum. 
  • Brennan doesn't care about Wells' science-fair stories; she just wants to talk about the bones on the table. 
  • Brennan may have to change her mind about eating, considering where the string cheese led Wells. 
  • Wells thinks he's pretty impressive. Could be he be bucking for King of the Lab? (gasp!)
  • Brennan may have met her match in the knowledge department. 

What do you think now that you've seen the preview clips or this episode of Bones? Will Wells learn his proper place as one of Brennan's interns or will he turn out to be a challenge for Brennan to handle? 

Bones airs on Monday nights at 8pm on FOX.
