Bones Return Scoop: Squinterns Unite!

at . Comments


A presence on Fox's Bones since the beginning, they've always on the periphery, a rag tag revolving door of assistants being bossed around the Jeffersonian and amusing us with their eccentricities.

For years, we've been accustomed to seeing them on a rotating presence, but for the first time, an episode this spring features nearly all the beloved squinterns working together simultaneously!

Among them: Edison, Vaziri, Fisher, Abernathy and Bray. That's the good news. The bad? Scheduling conflicts prevent one of the best known, Carla Gallo's Daisy, from appearing this time around.

What brings the motley crew together? "It's a challenge from Brennan that takes a dark, twisted turn and leads to a really intense case," teases T.J. Thyne (Hodgins), in an interview with TV Guide.

John Francis Daley (Sweets) is particularly excited, even without Daisy. "Each of them is a different personality type, so to see them all working together will be interesting," he says.

Also, according to TV Guide's William Keck, look for an episode in which Sweets and Booth solve a crime in the world of stand-up comedy, and for Angela to develop a "cerebral attraction" with an art dealer.

I want to see the interns fight to find clues, but then Zack solves the case. I hope he admits to not guilty and he is released.


I too was hoping to see about what happened after season 6. How did they all react, Parker's take on a new baby? Really left us hanging. Come on.....fill us in......please !!!!!!


I like all these squinterns. I miss Zack - can't STAND Daisy! @Ari: That is a brilliant idea! Now that Emily D. is no longer pregnant, they could do some flashbacks: How did the team react to the news that not only were B&B officially together, but also expecting? What did Max, Parker, and Rebecca have to say about it? Based on what I'm reading here, it doesn't sound like this "squintern"-centric episode is slated to be one of the 4 bonuses. Did I miss something?


While this is an interesting idea, I was really hoping that the "bonus" episodes would be what happened between season 6 and season 7. I'm just dieing to know.


Never cared for the "squinterns" and they killed off the only one I really liked but that happens when you get your own show. Bray is OK, absolutely hate Daisy! I am a new viewer but I loved Zack since watching the old episodes online. He is by far the best. Just don't get what Hanson is saying about "opening up a can of worms" in bringing him back and that 90% of viewers won't know who he is???? He got rid of him for a reason and I don't think he wants him back, despite what fans want. Just a thought.


Definatly have had the idea for the "squinterns unite" storyline in my head for a while. It'll be great to see it played out on screen. Sucks about Daisy but i haven't been crazy about the character since "the prince in the plastic"... yikes. Season 7 has been a little disappointing as of so far but things are looking up for the back end episodes, especially "the prisoner in the pipe." I'm hoping baby b gets better storylines and screen time than baby hodgins.

Bones Quotes

Sometimes the best things in life happen against the odds.


Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
