The last episode of Bones
attracted some 10.7 million viewers to finish ahead of CBS' The New Adventures of Old Christine
and Gary Unmarried
with 8.1 million. On the episode “The Passenger in the Oven,” Booth and Brennan were on their way to China so that Brennan could identify prehistoric remains to watch over the equipment. Things didn't go the way they planned when a flight attendant discovered a fully cooked human body in the plane's industrial microwave (hence the title). A lot of fans liked the way it began: with Bones in first class and Booth in coach.
Moving on, the duo had to use the Internet with the team in the Jeffersonian and use Brennan's high-tech equipment to send evidence back on the ground for processing. They discovered that the victim was a travel writer working on a controversial story about airline pilots. Now it got tricky when the plane neared landing in China where the two had no jurisdiction over the case.
On tonight's episode of Bones
, a skull and various skeletal remains are found in a tree in a protected wooded preserve. Obviously, Brennan and Booth are called on the case to investigate. Meanwhile, back at the Jeffersonian, Brennan learns that her estranged father bagged a new position as a teacher. The whole thing makes her uneasy because he was recently acquitted for murder.
Meanwhile, the victim's bones are identified as belonging to an ex-Marine who has been off the radar for nearly three years. Now because of this, there is hardly any record of him. So they turn on good ole internet to get some clues. They eventually stumble upon a super-elite private school and a group of rich and influential families, one of whom is the former boss of the ex-Marine's. To their surprise, Brennan's daddy becomes connected to the case.
tonight at 8pm on Fox.
