From FOX: When an affluent school teacher is found dead in an abandoned bookstore, the teachers and students at her school become suspects in the case. Meanwhile, Brennan‘s publisher encourages her to join Twitter to help grow her fan base, and "squintern" Jessica Warren (guest star Laura Spencer) teaches Brennan some tricks to master the Twitter-verse, skills Brennan enthusiastically puts to use.

‘Bones‘ Recap: Brennan Goes Twitter Happy and Caroline Adopts Two Kids

Bones‘ episode, "The Teacher in the Books," delivers humor, heart and heroics in spades. The tale of a fiercely dedicated teacher, a tender-hearted attorney with an underprivileged past, and a forensic anthropologist determined to dominate current social media channels has made it‘s way into my top 20 favorite Bones episodes of all time. Though there are many fine performances in this 202nd episode, three truly stand out. First, Jessica Warren (Laura Spencer), Brennan‘s somewhat overbearing squintern with the unsinkable confidence and spunky attitude, is delightful without being gloaty as Brennan‘s Twitter mentor. Second, Aubrey (John Boyd), the cakeable junior FBI agent with a reputation for being just shy of obnoxiously accusatory in the interrogation room (and damn, he‘s good at it), shows extraordinary compassion toward a young man who is willing to risk everything to provide for his younger brother. And finally, this episode‘s MVP, AUSA Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher), who puts her own neck on the line for a couple of kids she doesn‘t even know so that they won‘t have to fight as hard as she did in a world where the odds are stacked against them.
