Synopsis

From FOX: When remains of real estate agent Justin Ross are found in the forest and appear to have been destroyed by coyote-wolf hybrids, Brennan enlists the help of fellow brilliant forensic anthropologist Dr. Beth Mayer (guest star Betty White) to assist in the investigation. In addition to her professional achievements, Mayer is surprisingly knowledgeable about the world of fantasy football, a key link to Ross‘ past and one that could provide vital information in finding his killer. As Booth and Aubrey dig into Ross‘ fantasy football league history, they discover he was actively involved in a Twitter feud with NFL star Lou Divers (guest star Ronde Barber), and was also owed a large sum of money from the league‘s commissioner, making each of them suspects. Meanwhile, Brennan resists feeling competitive as Mayer impresses the team with her expertise and decades of accomplishments.

‘Bones‘ Recap: Does Brennan Really Kill Off Agent Andy?

The featured guest star is none other than the iconic comedienne Betty White who plays brilliant forensic anthropologist, Dr. Beth Mayer, Brennan‘s colleague and rival. This sassy Emmy and American Comedy Award winner brings to her Bones character the moxie and comedic timing she‘s charmed the viewing public with for nearly nine decades as a performer.Tripling the levity of this season‘s fourth outing are three wildly creative and entertaining subplots. The first centers around the juxtaposition of Booth‘s distress and Brennan‘s cavalier attitude over the fate of Agent Andy. The second, providing countless opportunities for sarcasm and sexual innuendo involves Drs. Mayer, Hodgins and Wells, and tackles Oliver‘s disturbingly flaccid phallus. The third and most minor of the subplots introduces the madcap adventures of Hodgins and Oliver out in in the wild with guns. (Oh, no!) Buckle your seat belts, boys and girls, and prepare to Laugh ... Yourself ... Silly.
