Tune in November 19 to hear the insightful Bones quotes Booth's grandfather has to offer.

The upcoming episode will be an vital one in the Bones lore. Viewers will learn the reasons behind Booth’s abusive father abandoning his son at age 11.

The series is currently casting for that important role, as well, but Mr. Booth won't appear for awhile.

“You can’t introduce too many relatives at once," said Nathan.
