Synopsis

From FOX: Six months after the events of last season, Booth, Brennan, daughter Christine and the new baby are ostensibly living a dream life, a world away from the murder-filled life they left behind. But a case with close personal ties to the couple compels Brennan to become involved in the forensic analysis of the remains, and Booth mysteriously goes missing, prompting an FBI investigation into his whereabouts led by Agent Grace Miller (guest star Kim Raver), who works closely with FBI Agent James Aubrey on the case. However, tensions rise when Miller tries to investigate one of the team‘s own as the primary suspect. The case also brings Brennan into contact with a member of Booth‘s family (guest star Dilshad Vadsaria), and "squintern" Arastoo Vaziri (guest star Pej Vahdat), who has been filling in as lead forensic anthropologist during Brennan‘s absence, hopes the temporary position becomes permanent.

‘Bones‘ Season 11 Premiere Recap: What Fresh Hell Has Booth Gotten Himself Into?

While "The Loyalty in the Lie" isn‘t as catastrophically shocking as Bones‘ season ten premiere was, it‘s an intense and satisfying vintage B&B episode. If you are expecting a plethora of head-scratching quandaries, cool lab toys, an irritating character with murky intentions, lots of blood and gore, a hero putting his life on the line, a message about the family loyalty, some even-handed sentimentality, and smatterings of romance and humor ... then you will not be disappointed. The Bones fairies seem to have sensed that the drama had to be good, but not as severe as before, and the reason behind the "wrongdoing" had to be compelling enough that viewers would believe Booth would take the risks he takes with his life, and more importantly, with his marriage, in this premiere.
