Created by Hart Hanson and based on the series of novels by Kathy Reichs, Bones follows forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan who, along with her team at the Jeffersonian Institute, assists the FBI with their investigations. The drama series stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaela Conlin, T. J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley.The show’s eighth season opens with Brennan on the run with her father Max (guest star Ryan O’Neal) as a fugitive both from the law and serial killer Pelant, while Booth is restricted to administrative duties at the FBI. In addition, Sweets has been removed from the case, as has Federal Prosecuting Attorney Caroline Julian (guest star Patricia Belcher). What’s more, due to Pelant’s technical savvy, Booth and Brennan will communicate with each other in only the most rudimentary ways, not only to try to prove Brennan’s innocence but – with the help of Cam, Hodgins, and Angela – to place the blame where it belongs, on the murderous Pelant.
