TV show description:
Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a part-time novelist and a highly-skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC.
When the standard methods of identifying a body aren’t enough, law enforcement agencies call on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim’s bones. About the only one who can keep up with Brennan’s intelligence and laser focus is a member of the FBI’s Homicide unit, Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). A former sniper, street-smart Booth doesn’t trust scientists or their methods but eventually comes to respect Brennan’s abilities.
Brennan is most comfortable with her colleagues at Jefferson’s Medico-Legal Lab. Her team members include a bawdy facial reconstruction artist named Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin); a newbie forensic anthropologist and genius, the socially-awkward Dr. Zack Addy (Eric Millegan); an expert in insects, spores and minerals, conspiracy theorist Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne); and a street-smart coroner, Dr. Camile “Cam” Saroyan (Tamara Taylor).
Episode #246 — The End In the End
The team searches for evidence to track down Kovac, who remains at large; Brennan’s injury from the lab explosion forces the team to use what they’ve learned from her and find Kovac without Brennan. When all signs point to Kovac having outside help, as well as a hideout, Booth and Brennan track him down. With the final threat eliminated, the team cleans out their offices so the lab can be rebuilt. Along the way, they find items that remind them of their past colleagues. Aubrey gets a promotion and may start a relationship with Delfs. Arastoo and Cam go on a leave of absence to get to know the three brothers they’ve adopted. Hodgins becomes the interim lab director. Brennan shows Booth that she’s saved Sweet’s book and the clock that stopped when the bomb went off. She plans to put the latter in her new office, to remind her that life didn’t stop that day. Life goes on.
First aired: March 28, 2017.
