We are probably not quite to the point where Brennan (Emily Deschanel) will ask Booth (David Boreanaz) to be her husband on “Bones.” In “The Blood from the Stones,” however, we are starting to see some hints that the couple might be moving in that direction. After all, they spend at least part of the episode looking at engagement rings.
Unfortunately, the rings are merely part of a murder investigation, one in which the shop proprietor (Curtis Armstrong) may be involved. But it never hurts to start shopping early!
What sort of murder investigation do we get in “The Blood from the Stones”? Another video gives us some clue. It also introduces us to Andrew Jersick (Dave Thomas), a documentary filmmaker focusing on the Jeffersonian.
Brennan isn’t terribly interested in dealing with a film guy. Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), meanwhile, wants to be a King-of-the-Lab-style star. Alas, he is but a sidekick here.
In addition to the documentarian, we also find out that diamonds are (almost literally) at the heart of the matter in this episode.
As we soon find out, the victim is an undercover cop who was looking into some ATM robbers. What does that have to do with diamonds?
ATM cash is apparently traceable, so the bad guys were buying diamonds with it. That’s good information to know before starting a life of crime!
“The Blood from the Stones” airs on Monday, March 25 at 8pm on FOX.
