‘Bones’ Episode Guide (Jan. 31): A Tutor Turns Up Dead

“The Final Chapter: The Tutor in the Tussle” (01/31/17) – When a tutor of privileged students turns up dead, the team sorts through all the possible perpetrators, from disgruntled parents to the tutor’s roommate with a criminal record.

Meanwhile, Bones is frustrated with the voice of her audio book and tries to prove that she can record it herself in an all-new episode of “Bones” airing Tuesday, Jan. 31 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Joel David Moore as Dr. Colin Fisher; Sara Rue as Karen Delfs; Guy Boyd as Philip Aubrey; Rafi Gavron as Benny Pence; Marsha Thomason as Amy Bryan; Haley Tju as Meredith Hurley; Kalon Atkins as Andrew; Julie Claire as Psycho Sue Casey; Justin Castor as Jacob Casey; Jaleel White as Officer Adams; Mike Erwin as Matt Bogdan; Fred Cross as Gavin Mills, and Alexie Gilmore as Cornelia Mills.

“Bones,” the long-running comedic procedural beloved by millions of fans around the world, will return for a final farewell 12th season on FOX.

When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless, law enforcement calls on Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), a highly skilled forensic anthropologist employed by the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, D.C., who writes novels on the side, for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones. While most people can’t handle Brennan’s intelligence and her drive for the truth, FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) is an exception. A former Army sniper, he 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.

Over the course of the series, Brennan has devoted herself to her career, to Booth, with whom she has two children, and to her team at the Jeffersonian. They include best friend Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes; Angela’s husband, Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne), a conspiracy theorist and expert on insects, spores and minerals, who is affectionately known as “the slime and bug guy”; Dr. Camille “Cam” Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), the street-smart and centered coroner; and Booth’s most recent colleague at the FBI, Special Agent James Aubrey (John Boyd), a young, intrepid agent with a voracious appetite for solving crime, junk food and career advancement.

The final season’s 12-episode run will celebrate the inventive series and bring the storylines of Brennan, Booth and the Jeffersonian-FBI team to a close, allowing the show’s loyal fans to say goodbye to these indelible characters. Over the course of the farewell season, fans will experience deaths, a wedding, epic serial killer storylines and an undercover episode.

“Bones” is from Far Field Productions and Josephson Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series was created by Hart Hanson. Hanson, Barry Josephson, Stephen Nathan, Randy Zisk, Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson are executive producers.
