BONES Redux: Our Top 5 Moments From “The Brother in the Basement”


Hey, BONES fans, for this episode, we go back in time! Just like Huey Lewis. Look it up, kids. We get to find out how Booth wound up with a hole in his gut in a basement with those charming men from last episode. Here are your BONES Top Five Moments!

Back in Time!
Twenty-four hours earlier, in a land far, far away…or right where the van was found last episode, O’Donnell is about to torch the van with Jared inside of it. A wounded Booth and O’Donnell talk about how bad they feel about Jared, but neither of them is at all a wreck about it. Poor Jared. O’Donnell is so over it, he threatens Booth that if he has a problem with Jared’s unorthodox cremation, well he can curl up next to his bro. Okay, O’Donnell, slow your roll.

Booth assesses he’s in the company of crazy people with guns, he’s outnumbered, and he’s wounded. He does a much better acting job this week when he agrees it all has to get blowed up. Including Jared. Probably not the funeral he would have chosen for himself. But Booth does insist on being the one to do it.
Back in the present, Booth isn’t doing so well. A bullet to the gut will do that to ya. The other guys seem annoyed by Booth’s grunts of pain and take bets on how long it will be before he kicks the bucket.
Meanwhile O’Donnell gets the call that they’re going to do the trade and get some kind of list. Booth is shaking and stuttering and generally looking like death warmed over as he tries to pretend he’s totally fine and going along for this meeting that takes place in five hours. Let’s see what happens.

Miller is a liar
Due to Caroline’s awesomeness, she found out Agent “Booth is guilty of every crime” Miller wasn’t truthful with them, and her partner is missing. Now the shoe’s on the other foot, and she has to come clean about her partner, who four days previous printed out…a LIST. DUN DUN DUN! This list includes anyone undercover in criminal or terrorist organizations. I’m sure that’s not important. And even though Brennan points out her hypocrisy with accusing Booth left and right, Miller’s defense is that Booth disappeared around the same time, so they’re both dirty.

Aubrey’s s all, “We’re going to search his house and stuff, and Agent Miller’s like, “Oh, yeah?” and Aubrey’s like, “Yeah!” And Caroline’s like, “The Jeffersonian is the most awesome,” And Miller’s like, “Your lab totally sucks since Brennan left,” and Brennan’s like, “I’m back, so STFU” and that’s how Brennan unofficially came back to the Jeffersonian. Okay, not exactly like that, but you get the picture.

Miller’s partner, Richard, has a fiancée named Chloe. They haven’t been able to find her since Richard went missing. Hey, do you think…? Naw. I’m sure if I can think of it, this group of highly trained and intelligent individuals should be able to…oh, wait. No. They’re going with the “they ran off together” scenario. Because I guess Miller won’t even vouch for her own partner and just automatically thinks he’s a rat.

Richard has only wine and cheese in his fridge, and…oh, look! A finger in a baggie in his freezer! Hmmm…I wonder…

Three guesses as to whom the finger belongs to. Say it with me, people: Chloe! So we know why Richard printed that list, and now all of you smart people will maybe wait until a couple of facts come in first before making accusations. Caroline, being her usual amazing self, tells Miller to climb down from that horse after her team missed a finger next to the Hot Pockets. Never change, Caroline!

And guess what? Miller and her partner used to be in a relationship. She’s a prize, this agent Miller. Also, also, when Richard broke up with her, she threatened Chloe. Yeah, hand over your badge and gun to Aubrey.

Booth, The Walking Dead
The theory is that Jared being Jared, he got in way over his head with the robbing crew and told Booth, who insinuated himself into the gang, so the list wouldn’t get into the wrong hands. Just as Caroline says Booth is going to die trying to get that list, he appears to be doing just that. And the other guys are all broken up about it and attending to his wound. Or just sitting there watching Booth die and calling him the walking dead. One or the other.

Five billion hours later, and after he’s gone through all of the gauze, Booth finds some silver nitrate to cauterize the wound. The other guys are all “Ewwww” about it.

More Crispy Corpses!
Wire cutters used on Chloe’s finger as well as on a chain link fence in a noxious environment…abandoned battery recycling facility. Of course!

When Aubrey and Miller arrive…oh geez…vultures are feeding on a couple of crispy corpses, flambéed just for them. Now I’m saying, “EWWWW!” Bad news. It looks like one of them is Chloe. All of that battery acid came in handy.

As the squints ponder the wonder of what vultures eat and how Brennan can’t imagine a world without Booth, an attractive stranger approaches and asks for Angela. Hodgins immediately puffs his chest and says he’s her hubby, while Brennan insists they have no time for a strip tease. He’s really good-lucking, you guys. And instantly I’m suspicious, especially when he says Miller sent him, and he’s wearing a cast. He’s Dr. Benjamin Metzger, a digital forensic scientist with the bureau. He claims the cast is from carpal tunnel. Mmmm…we’ll see, handsome.

Hodgins tries to blend into the woodwork as Metzger works with Angela. And by that I mean give him wicked stink-eye. Metzer immediately settles everyone down by talking about the seven-year itch.

When Cam confirms the other CC is Miller’s partner, Metzger starts to cry. Oh, my spidey senses are tingling with this guy.

And gee, I don’t know why I don’t trust Metzger, when O’Donnell suddenly receives a text not to trust Booth and to kill him.

And guess what? Chloe dined on cheese and wine with her killer in Richard’s apartment . Hmmm…who would be good looking and charming enough to….

Lookie here. The killer used brass knuckles on Richard. Know what else? Doing that would have fractured the person’s wrist. See?

At Criminal Headquarters, O’Donnell may not be such a bad guy after all. Instead of killing Booth, he calls off the list heist. But his partners aren’t happy about being cheated out of 40 mil. They have a coup, and one of the bad guys picks up the phone with the texts. O’Donnell says he’s not going to kill anyone, and (Metzger) says Booth will arrest them.

Bad Guy One attempts to shoot Booth who isn’t as half dead as he had been. He deflects the gun and takes down Bad Guy. But Bad Buy Two manages to take down O’Donnell and get some heavy artillery. Booth locks himself in another room and doubles over in pain. He manages to pry open a vent that leads to the outside world, so when Bad Guy Two gets in there, Booth appears to have gone through the opening, only he didn’t, and manages to slam BG2 with a piece of metal or something.

Aubrey and Miller can’t get Metzger to talk, so Brennan comes in there, and let’s just say that when she took hold of his wrist and twisted it, I heard cracking noises.

The cavalry arrives just in time for Booth to really come out the opening.

Brennan comes back!
Brennan’s character goes back and forth between learning her lesson about talking to people as if they’re her plebes and talking to them like they’re her plebes. Arastoo’s five seconds of glory is cut short when Brennan once again reminds him, and everyone else, that nobody is as good as she is. THANKS, Agent Miller!
Brennan continues with classic abuser behavior, where she puts down Arastoo and then talks kindly to him. At this point he doesn’t know whether to go to the bathroom or brush his teeth. He’s worried he’ll be fired and tells Cam he’s going to look for another job.

Angela reminds Arastoo that any unsolved cases are on Brennan’s head, because she’s the one who went skipping out of there, which is the point I made last week. Make sure you tell Brennan that to her face, Angela.

Later Brennan tells Cam Arastoo will be able to take over in a few years, but for now she wants her job back. Cam is THRILLED, since this means, for some reason, Arastoo has to fall off the face of the earth. So, without warning, 1. Cam has gotten over her cold feet. She’ll say yes if he asks her to marry him and 2. Arastoo won’t ask her, since all of a sudden his only opportunities are in Ottawa, Cincinnati, and Dubai. Nary a tear is shed. “I love you and want to marry you.” “I love you and want to marry you, too!” “Oh, wait, I don’t love you enough to stick around and be an intern, so buh-bye.” “Okay, see ya! It’s been real!”

And if you didn’t guess, Brennan also talks Booth into going back to his old job. Surprise!

So, that’s it. I’ll miss you, Arastoo. I’m glad we got so invested in your relationship with Cam, only for it to end with almost no fanfare at all. Until next week!

BONES Spoilers: Executive Producer Michael Peterson Teases What’s Coming Next in Season 11


The two-part season premiere of BONES has concluded and with the mystery of Booth’s whereabouts were solved, he and Brennan will be returning to their old jobs. But will the rest of the season be business as usual? BONES producer Michael Peterson has some teasers for you.

The Focus is on Booth and Brennan. “That was definitely the focus coming into this season [and] when Jon Collier and I met with and talked to David and Emily, our focus 100% is making sure to have as much time as possible with Booth and Brennan. That is the heart of the show. We will challenge ourselves to make sure to get as much screen time as possible. David gave us a note early on and he said ‘go back and watch early seasons, like Seasons 1 and 2, and just really kind of see all the interactions that we were able to have early on’ and it was great, I did. I spent my hiatus watching all these episodes over and over again and it also inspired a lot of storylines. For instance, watching the pilot, it talks a lot about the first book that Temperance, that the Brennan character writes and how it’s inspired by each one of the characters on the show and that led to a fun storyline that is coming up I think in Episode 4 where there’s a twist in Brennan’s latest novel that is a sharp departure, but it leads to some pretty good back and forth between Booth and Brennan as a result of it.”

Does Brennan Forgive Booth too Easily for Lying to Her Before His Disappearance? “Well, we’ll go into it some, but last year was very specific [with] Booth lying about gambling versus what happened this year and I think that if it had just been a one-parter and David was reunited with her after the first episode I think that Brennan would have hit him a lot harder as far as accusations, but through the course of the second episode, what we’re trying to get to is she understands who she is better through this case, that she belongs at the lab. In discovering where she belongs she also understands Booth better, that Booth is this man of action. The way that we say it internally here is Booth is a little bit of a Superman and Superman can’t just sit by and watch as people suffer. There really is no retiring for him, so by the end of the second episode Brennan understands that she belongs in the lab and that her Superman, Booth, belongs out there in the field saving people. She understands him in a way that probably nobody else could, so while a lot of people would yell at him saying you lied to me, she understands it’s just who he is and she wouldn’t want him to be any other way.”

What’s Coming for Cam, Arastoo, Hodgins, Angela and Aubrey? “If you’ve seen the first two episodes for Cam and Arastoo, we’ll be following their relationship very closely after what goes down in the first couple of episodes. Also, Hodgins and Angela in Episode 10, there will be a major shake-up for them and it also is going to be related to Aubrey. That’s our mid-season finale. It’s an episode that was actually…originally we were considering for our season opener, so we’re going to start with a quite literal bang, but that episode will be very interesting as far as how it will change the trajectory of the rest of the season. When Jon Collier and I were handed this gift to be able to work on this show and be able to be showrunners this year we wanted to make sure that we shook things up, and so there are going to be many, many major arcs. We don’t want to get complacent in the fact that Booth and Brennan are married and everyone is coupled up. We want to challenge them, but not in any kind of artificial way. We want it to be character-led. So, we’re going to have lots of arcs going for each of the people this season.”

The SLEEPY HOLLOW Crossover and Big Bads in Season 11. “There’s the SLEEPY HOLLOW episode, [which has] a very interesting version of a big bad, which is in that one we’re going to find two sets of remains. One of them is going to be very, very old and that’s going to be more of a big bad from the Sleepy Hollow universe. That’s going to be interesting in itself. Again, episode 10 is probably going to be the biggest bad that we’re going to come across and I really don’t want to give too much away there, but, as I said, it’s going to be something that impacts Hodgins, Angela and Aubrey very directly.”

Going Undercover Again. “We will definitely be going undercover again this season and I think it’s going to be so good that maybe next year she’ll change her answer as far as what her favorite undercover episode is. It’s going to be a different version of undercover than we’ve ever done before, so it’s going to be very playful, competitive. It’s unlike any undercover we’ve done before, so we’re very excited. I believe that’s going to be 11.09.”

BONES airs Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

HAVEN Star Lucas Bryant On The Series Finale, His Favourite Trouble and Upcoming Projects


After five seasons, SyFy’s hit series HAVEN will air its final episodes beginning tonight at 10PM. In a hilarious exclusive interview, series star Lucas Bryant, the man behind Nathan Wuornos, tells me about playing a character with no physical sensation, his directorial debut, and his upcoming projects.

How does it feel to know that Haven has such a cult following?
Lucas Bryant: It was always pretty cool to meet fans from all over the world who traveled to visit us. Either on set, or at conventions, the love and support of HAVEN fans was definitely something I could feel… and seeing the same faces over the years showed me how loyal they were too. Pretty amazing. I’ve always wanted to start a cult. A nice cult. This might be it.

Did you ever sustain any injury while filming scenes where Nathan suffered physical trauma?
I never injured myself in a scene where Nathan suffered physical trauma. But in a scene with Duke, Nathan was supposed to be really frustrated, so I kicked the steel bumper of the Bronco… really hard. Not smart. Very bad idea. Really hurt. The Bronco is very tough. My boot filled up with blood. But of course Nathan couldn’t show it so…

Sandra on Facebook wants to know how did you prepare to play a character with no physical sensation?
Thankfully, I’m a very insensitive and rather heartless person, so it wasn’t much of a stretch. No. I’m not like that at all. But I know many insensitive and rather heartless people. So I studied them. This is all a lie… I can’t tell you my secrets.

If Nathan could switch Troubles, which one do you think he’d choose?
The one that makes everything you eat turn into pancakes. I think.

lucasbryantsays on Twitter would like to know was there something you had to do on-screen that you were not entirely comfortable with?
The scenes with Mara were initially uncomfortable, but that was from a story point of view. I was like “Really? Nathan’s gonna kiss Mara? Why?! Why would he do that?! She’s like… the devil!” But then they were like, “Calm down, Lucas. Go put some clothes on… come back and talk to us when you’ve slept…” So I did. I think they were right. It ended up working out.

Was it your idea to direct the episode “Enter Sandman,” and if so, why did you choose that particular episode?
Nope, it just worked out that way, and I’m so thankful it did. The most amazing experience. And one of my favorite episodes of the series… seriously. Thank you, Shernold Edwards.

Which role reversal scenario did you enjoy acting out more: Doctor Hansen or Duke?
They were both a blast… anything like that is exciting for an actor. But I felt like I was more handsome as Duke. He’s stunning.

What’s next for you now that Haven’s wrapped? The fans all say they wish to see you in more projects.
I’m working on a very cool new series called “Shoot the Messenger,” which is coming out in 2016 and “The Girl King,” a beautiful little feature I worked on last year is coming out soon!

irish_tear on Instagram wants to know will you stay in contact with the Haven cast?
Of course. I will. I do. I have. I love them muchly.

Is there hope for Haven having a happy ending, especially for Nathan and Audrey?
There is always hope. What else could there be? No hope? Nope. There is hope.

The final season of HAVEN unspools on Thursdays at 10PM on Syfy

We Shine the Spotlight on CASUAL Star Michaela Watkins

michaela watkins casual

After a career spent stealing scenes as a supporting player in such TV Addict favorites like TROPHY WIFE, TRANSPARENT and WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, Michaela Watkins is about to have her much-deserved moment. Premiering this week on HULU, Watkins stars in Jason Reitman’s CASUAL, as a recently separated mother who finds herself back in the dating world after a seventeen year hiatus. I caught up with Watkins to talk about her hilarious career path, her darkly funny and honestly raw performance in CASUAL and what she’s loving on television right now.
You worked on a lot of great shows recently, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER, TRANSPARENT, TROPHY WIFE, how were those experiences for you?  What did you take away from working on each show? 
Watkins: I feel really lucky that those are the little tribes I sort of fell into. It was so much fun working on them, it almost feels like the product at the end, you feel like you’re making something really silly and great, and then when it comes together its just icing on top because the process of working on it with everybody is so fun. It’s the best, to me they are some of the most interesting people, doing what we are doing and I feel like they all make me better.
What was your initial reaction to reading the scripts for TRANSPARENT?
My initial reaction was, fuck yeah! It’s unlike anything that is on television and I know Jill (Soloway) and I know that when her father came out as trans, what a complicated time that was and then seeing her put all of that complexity into the script and come up with something so beautiful and so specifically her.  When she said Jeffery Tambor would probably play Maura and I just thought, okay, game over.  I’ve worked with Jill a few times and the way she conducts her art, it’s very free form and it’s very loose, creative, and collaborative and I think even when you read the scripts, the scripts are great. What happens when you’re in the room and working with her is a whole other ball game because she basically says, “throw my script away, let’s do something totally different.”
Your new show, CASUAL premieres tonight, what can you tell us about your character, Valerie?
I was just saying this to somebody, it’s really weird because I do a lot of comedy and some of it is a little darker and leans towards dramedy.  This definitely falls in the dramedy category, it feels like an independent film and because of that it’s been a real trip.  I can really take the time with the scripts and the show to get to know the character, in a way where they feel like such real people to the degree that I am kind of nervous and scared because I feel so vulnerable.  The character is so close to me, she’s a little more reserved than I am. Whatever feeling I’m having, you’ll know I’m feeling it at the time because I probably overshare and that’s not like Valerie at all, but everything else does. She processes her pain, and being cheated on and going through a divorce.  I don’t have kids but I have nieces and nephews around the same age as the girl who plays my daughter and all of it just feels so real, and the writing is so good that it feels so natural.  I guess I should tell you she’s a little controlling, a little pragmatic, she’s got her own sense of humor. At the beginning of the show she’s just really sad and really uncomfortable with being a thirty –nine-year-old single woman.  It’s a little terrifying for her because this is all new and she makes some interesting mistakes, but none of it feels campy, none of it feels wacky, it all feels like the exact kind of thing I would do.  When I was single in my mid-thirties I was so freaked out about dating because I realized it’s a different world in the way it is now.  People may not call you and that’s strange. (Laughs)
Will we see a lot into her dating life?
Yeah, you will. Also into her messed up psyche.  This is a show about a brother and sister and their relationship and they are a little dysfunctional and for different reasons. They help each other but they also bring out each others crazy. It’s a show about family and dating, but mainly a show about family. There’s a lot of love there, it may not be the healthiest kind but there’s definitely a lot of love.
Aside from an introduction to your character, Valerie what else can we look forward to in the Pilot?
There’s a really great shot of a naked butt (Laughs) it’s not mine! In the first couple of episodes it’s really ramping up, stuff doesn’t go too crazy until the fourth episode, then it goes on a real journey. Think of it as an independent film, the first three episodes are the first act, then the next three and four are the second act and that’s when all of the complications begin to kick in, then the third act, things just go off the rails. When I read one of the episodes I had to go for a walk after, I was so freaked out by what happens. In the first two it’s really getting to know the characters, it’s really great dialogue, it’s shot really beautifully.  It’s got that Jason Reitman thing where it’s sort of stylized and it’s really natural, the music is really great and minimal and it’s used smartly.
What shows are you loving on TV right now?
In terms of comedy, I’m loving DIFFICULT PEOPLE because it’s got some of the best lines I’ve ever heard in it.  Do you like CATASTROPHE?
I really really love CATASTROPHE!
It’s great!  I love HOUSE OF CARDS, TOGETHERNESS, I started watching ORPHAN BLACK, that shows so good.  MAD MEN was my favorite show ever and I’m so sad that’s over. I think I’m going to start watching YOU’RE THE WORST, because everybody says that’s so great.
You can watch Michaela in CASUAL today on Hulu.

THE LIBRARIANS Season 2 Extended Preview: New Adventures Are Coming

the librarians

TNT has released a new extended preview for season 2 of THE LIBRARIANS and it’s full of action and fun.

The new season begins with a massive storm forming over Manhattan, which draws the Librarians back together after months apart. They soon discover that the culprit behind the storm is Shakespeare’s Prospero. Meanwhile, Jenkins also discovers that there’s something wrong with the Library since it returned from the Void.

TNT also says that “throughout the season, The Librarians’ individual identities will be challenged as they confront their pasts and potential futures. Their previous methods – where they could just jump from place to place, grabbing artifacts before they caused too much harm or putting ghosts and monsters to bed – just aren’t going to cut it anymore. Magic is popping in the world too fast and in too many ways to be completely hidden. Even the mission of the 2,000-year old Library has to change, creating a fundamental split between Eve Baird and Flynn Carsen that could completely derail the Librarians’ mission to protect the world.”

THE LIBRARIANS returns with a two-hour season premiere beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on November 1 on TNT.
