Sorry this is up late. I’m battling some vicious flu or something. Someone just chop my head off and I’ll be good! LOL
Just to let you all know… This is the last regular Remote post until the new fall season starts in…August? September? Whenever. 😉 We might post a few odds and ends when something really good is going to air, but as a regular post, we won’t be back until fall. But keep coming to the site daily! I’ll still be posting the weekly and daily TV schedules, and we have at least one interview coming up soon. Plus, I have three great, fun giveaways I’ll be posting in the next month or two, so don’t miss them!
Tonight is a new – and pivotal – episode of Bones. Last week was a fun one, with guest stars from the vocal group Pentatonix playing part of an acapella college group called the Whippersnaps. When one of the Whippersnaps was killed (and his body found eaten by rats in a science lab. Gross!), it was up to Booth, Brennan, and the rest of the team to find out who did it and why. They focused most of their investigation on the other members of the acapella group and the rival group of female singers, the Gingersnaps, but in the end, it was the dead guy’s roommate who’d killed him, albeit accidentally. He’d found out the singer was stealing his meds and shoved him. The guy fell back, and in trying to balance himself, the bookshelf fell on top of him, hitting him just right and killing him. He put his body in the lab with the rats that had been starved and then released them, hoping they’d eat all the evidence.
Aside from the case, there were several other fun stories. Booth was excited to be setting up their upcoming hike on the Appalachian Trail with his son, only Parker confessed to Bones that he’d gotten into the summer creative writing program at Oxford, and he asked her to tell his dad. Booth was understandably upset but realized Parker needed to do what would make him happiest. Also, it turns out Aubrey was in an acapella group when he was younger! Booth found a tape of their performance and played it for Hodgins, Angela, Brennan, and Aubrey. Hysterical! And finally…Hodgins… He’s still not back to his old self, although things are better between him and Angela. But last week, he signed up for an experimental surgery in the hopes that he would walk again. Angela put a stop to that, though, pointing out that a patient had died on that surgeon’s table, and Hodgins needed to value his life as much as he valued the surviving rat, who he’d named Copernicus. He agreed not to do the surgery.
I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s a good one. Some good twists and turns, and some excellent and funny personal story lines. In my opinion, it’s a can’t-miss episode.
On tonight’s episode, “The Secret in the Service,” an intoxicated college student discovers the dead body of a Secret Service agent just before a scheduled presidential visit to the area. Former intern Dr. Colin Fisher leads the investigation while Brennan battles a case of the flu. Meanwhile, Hodgins takes his life into his own hands and turns a corner after a dangerous experiment.
To see what Hodgins does and who killed the Secret Service agent, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching Beat Bobby Flay.
