In a new sneak peek from Monday's Bones, Brennan assembles five squints and goes all Phil Jackson on them, channeling the legendary NBA coach and preaching the message of teamwork. It's pretty awesome.
Watch that and four more scenes from "The Patriot in Purgatory" now:
At first, the message seems over the squinterns' heads, as they've been assembled together to work as one, yet feel compelled to distinguish themselves individually. Eventually, however, they come together.
A turning point looks to be when they discover a clue regarding when the victim's rib was broken. His name is Tim Murphy. He had a wife and a son, and likely perished during the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Clearly the case hits very close to home for Booth, who wants to make this man's name known and recognized for his sacrifice, only to be stymied by the some of the very people he sacrificed his life for.
The episode, one of four which was originally filmed and planned for last season before it was scuttled amid Fox's many scheduling snafus, looks like it will be worth the wait when it airs tomorrow night.
