When Bones returns with a new episode on January 14, it will pay tribute a show largely responsible for the current trend of investigative dramas and serialized mysteries.
The installment's title might give it away: "The X in the File."
In case that clue somehow isn't enough, Dean Haglund guest stars as a diner owner on the episode. The actor (pictured below) is best known for his recurring role as Richard Langly on - you guessed it - The X Files.
During the hour, Booth and Brennan investigate possible alien remains around Roswell, New Mexico, a city where many people believe a UFO actually crashed in 1947.
