Bones season 8 continues on Monday, March 25 with an episode called "The Blood from the Stones." Check out the synopsis and preview video below to find out what happens when Booth and Brennan walk into a diamond ring store while on a case. 


First up, here is the synopsis of the episode from FOX:

An undercover police officer, who was investigating a string of ATM robberies, turns up dead in a van with a bag of diamonds found inside his mutilated body. So the Jeffersonian team must figure out whether or not the ATM robbers are also murderers, or if the cop was crooked. Meanwhile, Brennan is the subject of a documentary commissioned to raise funds for the Jeffersonian, and she struggles to be likeable on camera. 


In the first sneak peek clip for the episode, we see Booth and Brennan in a jewelry store. When the shop owner (played by the wonderful Curtis Armstrong asks if they are there to buy an engagement ring, things go from awkward to worse. 

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

  • The never-gets-flustered Brennan actually gets flustered, when Booth asks if she's going to buy him an engagement ring. 
  • Brennan finds it strange calling the father of her child "boyfriend."
  • Booth seems to be having a great time watching Brennan getting more and more flustered. 
  • Brennan has no trouble revealing to a complete stranger the details of her and Booth's deal. 
  • Oscar finds Booth's badge very shiny. Pretty funny coming from a guy who deals with diamonds. 


In the second sneak peek clip from the episode, we find Brennan and Hodgins working in the lab when Cam brings in a visitor. As you can imagine, this doesn't go over well with Brennan. 

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

  • The visitor to the lab is a famous documentarian that Hodgins (of course) has heard of. 
  • Andrew has quite the happy-go-lucky attitude on life, um, not. 
  • Hodgins has a lot of fun with the camera. 
  • Hodgins is not a sidekick, he is King of the Lab. 
  • Brennan names herself the protagonist in Andrew's film. 
  • Brennan has a unique way of addressing the camera. 
  • The victim appears to have been hiding drugs, but it turns out they were actually hiding diamonds. 

What do you think now that you've seen the sneak peek clips and read the synopsis for this episode of Bones? Why do you think their victim was body-packing diamonds? Do you think Booth and Brennan will have another discussion about any future marriage proposal?

Bones airs on Monday nights at 8pm on FOX.
