Brennan was feeling self-conscious about her body image as she and Booth investigated the case of a dead hairdresser on this week’s Bones. In the April 23 episode, Brennan will have another reason to feel slightly apprehensive: Parker will be returning from England and will be meeting his new baby sister, Christine, for the first time.
Brennan is understandably concerned about how the meeting will go, afraid that Parker might be jealous of his half-sister, but she does make the effort to suggest activities they can do as a family. Booth doesn’t think she has anything to worry about and suggests a dinner of bottom-less breadsticks to soothe any potential tensions.
Meanwhile, the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a truck company employee (where Booth is “lucky” enough to find the head after rolling down the hill and falling into muddy water). At the lab, Hodgins is excited about purchasing new lab equipment but goes overboard, prompting Angela to remind him that he’s a bit too excitable to handle those kind of tasks. He gets even more upset when Cam tells him that she can’t get him all of his new equipment because of budget cut-backs.
Watch four sneak peeks below for the April 23 episode of Bones, airing at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
