When remains of real estate agent Justin Ross are found in the forest and appear to have been destroyed by coyote-wolf hybrids, Brennan enlists the help of fellow brilliant forensic anthropologist Dr. Beth Mayer (guest star Betty White) to assist in the investigation. In addition to her professional achievements, Mayer is surprisingly knowledgeable about the world of fantasy football, a key link to Ross’ past and one that could provide vital information in finding his killer. As Booth and Aubrey dig into Ross’ fantasy football league history, they discover he was actively involved in a Twitter feud with NFL star Lou Divers (guest star Ronde Barber), and was also owed a large sum of money from the league’s commissioner, making each of them suspects. Meanwhile, Brennan resists feeling competitive as Mayer impresses the team with her expertise and decades of accomplishments.

Hello BONES fans! Season 11 is finally here, and it started off with a doozy. With a title such as “The Loyalty in the Lie,” how could it not? But who is being loyal—and who is lying (and to whom?).

As reported earlier in August, Kim Raver is part of a 2-episode arc on BONES this year—and the arc happens to be the first two episodes of the year. The show is treating the two episodes as a two-part premiere. The first episode airs tonight on Fox at 8 PM and the second next Thursday night.

There are other teaser posts about the premiere, and after the episode, we’ll have a post-mortem with co-showrunner Michael Peterson and my episode recap, so I won’t say too much more here, except to say that I really loved Raver’s turn as Agent Grace Miller.

Her character does butt heads with several other characters we know and love, but that is what I enjoyed about it. I think BONES does a great job integrating new characters (Aubrey being a good example), but for the most part, the new characters quickly come into alignment with the existing themes/characterizations that exist in the BONES-universe. Agent Miller challenges the audience’s perspective of Booth.

On paper, it’s true—he is a bit of a mess, he has suffered tremendous trauma, he can be dangerous, and he presents a risk. But for those characters who know him (and us in the audience), Booth’s track record doesn’t speak to his entire character. I came away from the first two episodes liking the idea that the real Booth is somewhere in the middle—not the guy in an FBI dossier against him, but also not as perfect or pure as some of the characters (and again us in the audience) make him out to be either.

On a recent conference call, I asked BONES star Emily Deschanel (Brennan) what it was like to work with Raver and what it was like to interact with a character who didn’t know Booth quite so well… Read more

BONES Season 11 Premiere: ‘The Loyalty in the Lie’ You Ask, I Answer

When BONES returns for its 11th season premiere, a key member of the team promptly goes missing: after a normal morning with his family, Booth vanishes.

Unfortunately, the circumstances around his disappearance are questionable, at best, and it takes the Jeffersonian discovering a bit of truly disturbing evidence for anyone to find out how dangerous things have gotten.

It’s a tough blow for his family and friends, since Booth and Brennan left their jobs at the end of season 10 for a fresh start and he should have been out of danger.

So what went down? I had the chance to screen the season premiere, “The Loyalty in the Lie,” and was able to answer a few of your questions/give a few teases of my own…
