Down to the bone
Booth is presumed dead in the second-last season of Bones.
Season 11 Mondays (from 25 July) FOX (*125) 19:20
When it comes to identifying a victim in cop show Bones (2005- current), things can sometimes get tricky, especially when the body’s state of decay has left them without a face! And Bones doesn’t shy away from showing all the gory details: fans see everything from a victim’s insides popping out, to bloody flesh and skin rotting off. But for forensic anthropologist Dr Brennan aka Bones (Emily Deschanel) and her FBI partner and husband Agent Booth (David Boreanaz), being up close and personal with a corpse is nothing new and they pride themselves on finding the killer responsible. In season 10 (2015), things ended on a sad note with Bones and Booth deciding to move on from their jobs at the Jeffersonian Institute and the FBI, leaving viewers to wonder what would happen next. “In our 11th season, we have not lost any momentum,” Emily reveals. And she’s not kidding – in episode 1, a body is identified as Booth… but there’s something fishy about it! Bones (left) and Booth are back for more action-packed crimes this season.
