‘Bones’ Episode Guide (3/31/14): ‘The Turn In The Urn’

“The Turn in the Urn” – Three people’s remains in a single urn confound the Jeffersonian team after a wealthy artifact collector walks into his own funeral. Meanwhile, Finn and Hodgins strike it rich with their hot-sauce venture, but Finn’s enthusiasm is tempered by devastating news from Michelle. “Bones” airs at a new day, tonight, March 31, 2014 at 8PM EST on FOX.

About “Bones”
“Bones,” a darkly amusing procedural entering its ninth season, is inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.

At the conclusion of Season Eight, tech genius and serial killer Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) once again returned to toy with the Jeffersonian team. Viewers were left hanging as Pelant forced SPECIAL AGENT SEELEY BOOTH (David Boreanaz) to call off his engagement to DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN (Emily Deschanel), threatening the lives of innocent people if he went through with the marriage or even told her why he was turning her down.

Season Nine will begin with Brennan questioning the viability of her relationship with Booth. Booth will be forced to win back her trust without revealing the reason for turning down her marriage proposal. But despite Pelant’s nefarious efforts to thwart their nuptials, the wedding that fans have been waiting for will take place this season.

In the series, Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and writes novels on the side. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless (ie. the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed), law enforcement calls on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones.

While most people can’t handle Brennan’s intelligence, her drive for the truth or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation, Booth is an exception. A member of the FBI’s Homicide Investigations Unit, and a former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists – the “squints,” as he calls them – who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan’s scientific acumen makes them a formidable duo, both professionally and personally.

Aside from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian’s Medico-Legal Lab. ANGELA MONTENEGRO (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan’s earthy and bawdy best friend. Angela is married to and has a son with DR. JACK HODGINS (TJ Thyne), affectionately known as “the slime and bug guy,” a conspiracy theorist and expert on insects, spores and minerals. DR. CAMILLE “CAM” SAROYAN (Tamara Taylor), the street-smart and centered coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview. Lending his professional expertise to Brennan and Booth is DR. LANCE SWEETS (John Francis Daley), a brilliant young FBI psychologist who is equally adept at profiling murderers and providing impromptu therapy to his co-workers.
