It turns out that the FBI has rules about consultants hitting suspects according to this week’s BONES. After striking a suspect in the Meninist episode, Brennan is being called in front of a disciplinary board. Booth has some suggestions on how she should show contrition, but Brennan doesn’t believe she has anything to be sorry for. At her hearing, Brennan insists that the suspect deserved it, but apparently that wasn’t what the panel wanted to hear and they threaten to revoke her consultant status with the FBI if Booth’s testimony goes anything like hers did. It really isn’t until then that Brennan seems to realize the severity of the situation.
Meanwhile, the Jeffersonian squints are called in to investigate the murder of a convicted felon who was released to a halfway house and then disappeared. But it turns out that a suspect in the cast has ties to Booth.
Elsewhere, Jessica returns and her first kiss with Aubrey keeps getting delayed. And it turns out they’re not the only people with relationship trouble because Hodgins continues to push Angela away. Will that cause her to turn to another man?
A new episode of BONES airs tonight (May 5) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
