Bones Season Premiere Scoop: An Anonymous Tip?

by at . Comments

Bones returns two weeks from tonight on Fox.

As we know, Brennan the fugitive will be on the lam, and a furious, reeling Booth is left pondering his next move. But according to the official episode synopsis, an anonymous tip might provide the answer.

When Bones Season 8 gets underway Sept. 17, the synopsis reads: "Having been accused of murder, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is on the run from the FBI, with help from her father Max (guest star Ryan O’Neal)."

Booth, Max

Booth (David Boreanaz) and the Jeffersonian team are convinced evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) has manipulated key evidence in the case to pinpoint Brennan as the prime suspect."

"Then, an anonymous tip leads the team to the remains of a high school guidance counselor that may hold the key to proving Brennan’s innocence in the all-new season premiere, 'The Future in the Past.'"

We know from the new promo that Booth does track her down, but how?

Who do you think might provide that tip, and how do you think it might clear Temperance's good name (and hopefully allow her to rid herself of her short, blonde hair disguise)? Sound off in the comments!

Anyone have any idea when Season 8 will come to Netflix?


I for one can't wait for the start of the new season and I LOVED Season 7! Hodgins' sibling could be someone Hodgins thought was dead but who turns out to be alive and well. The puzzler for me is how Booth's mom could leave the two little boys with their alcoholic father. Booth's 'Pops' had to rescue them from his abuse. Where was their mom when all that was going on? If she had to run then why didn't she take the boys with her?


Amaze-balls! Holy crap, can't wait for me Bones! Plus Pelant. Guy is so creepy and scary. I literally had nightmare about him last night. Well, it became a nightmare after some other sexier stuff. TMI?! Please tell me Bones doesn't keep that blonde hair tho.


I miss the old show seem like the acting and writing was better
