Tonight on Bones, we get a little bit of comedy as the Jeffersonian team is brought in on a case that seemingly delves into pure science fiction. We're sure it's nothing that Booth and Bones can't handle but solving the case proves to be a little messy.
"The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken," the sixth episode of Bones' fifth season, explores the mystery behind the mutilated remains of a local chicken farmer discovered on the bank of a nearby river. The twist: He's half-man and half chicken!
Could the farmer's murder be the result of a military experiment? Brennan, as expected, is skeptical about the whole thing so she digs deeper for more clues. But finding out the nature of his death is one thing, and identifying the murder suspect is another.
As it turns out, the farmer's supposed to inherit a chicken factory farm aggressively protested for inhumane living conditions and animal cruelty so the team is forced to question the farmer's many enemies, including extremist animal-rights activists and bitter neighbors, in order to solve the case.
Meanwhile, Angela is bothered by the farm's practices so she launches her own animal-rights campaign.
