'Bones': How did the squints handle 9/11?

Bones is at its best when the show takes a more serious tone.

Tonight’s episode started off in its now-typical light-hearted fashion. Booth (David Boreanaz) makes Brennan (Emily Deschanel) watch a basketball game, and she obsesses over Phil Jackson’s coaching techniques and his ideas on teamwork. She gathers all the interns together to help them form a more cohesive bond, instead of fighting for her admiration. While they are working to identify remains in the Jeffersonian, they come across a homeless man whose death was overlooked by the police. They come to find out that he was Tim Murphy,  a Gulf War veteran, who died from injuries sustained while saving people in the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.

Here are my favorite parts of the episode:

'Bones': Do David Boreanaz's facial expressions ever make you cry?

There was a single moment when I started sobbing last night watching Bones. All episode, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) were at odds with each other, since she took their daughter and ran away for three months. (Bones was being framed for murder and she had to go, but that doesn’t mean that Booth gets those three months back. Ever.) And she still doesn’t understand the repercussions for her relationship with Booth or his relationship with baby Christine. Plus, their investigation into the death of a divorce attorney added to the tension that had me very upset. (I can’t handle them breaking up, after it took six seasons to get them together.) But near the end of the hour, while Brennan does her “looking at bones” thing, Booth watches her from the hall. As the camera pans to his face, he starts to smile, ever so slightly. And that’s when I lost it.

'Bones' season finale react: Brennan did WHAT?

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched the season finale of Bones, stop reading now. The return of Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) produced a twist you won’t see coming. (Update: Read our postmortem interview with creator Hart Hanson.) READ FULL STORY

Wanted: Nominations for TV procedurals' most memorable serial killers

On tonight’s season finale of Bones, housebound hacker-turned-killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) returns to terrorize Booth and Brennan with, we suspect, more than his ability to change their ringtones and write complex computer code on human remains. Pelant is a person of interest in two murders — make that three after a doctor friend of Brennan’s is found dead. The twist: Pelant frames Brennan for the crime.

Will this earn Pelant a place among TV procedurals’ most memorable serial killers? (That recurring wolf howl ringtone is promising.) Which characters make your list? They can be series regulars, recurring characters (seen or unseen), or one-time guest stars that continue to haunt you. I still cringe thinking of the Mr. Punch mask-wearing killer in Luther‘s second series, while Bones‘ season 2 episode, “Aliens in a Spaceship,” that introduced the Gravedigger remains one of my favorites of the show. (The ending to Bones‘ Gormogon arc blew it for me, which is unfortunate, because a serial cannibal is fairly awesome.) Your turn, procedural junkies. Go!

'Castle' vs. 'Bones': How do their love stories compare?

Murder procedurals Castle and Bones both feature a cop and a best-selling author — or in Bones‘ case an anthropologist-turned-novelist — in a partnership that oozes so much sexual tension it can only lead to one thing. With the end of Castle‘s fourth season airing tonight, we take a look back at where Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) are in their romantic relationship compared to four years into the Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan (Emily Deschanel) pairing. (Leaving alternate realities and coma dreams out of the picture.)

'Bones' react: What did you think of Brennan and Booth's first week as parents?

With any TV show, the first episode following an “event” episode is always tricky. Not only are you coming off an emotional high point, but you quickly have to decide how the aforementioned “event” will affect the characters and the world they live in.

Last night’s episode of Bones was the first after the barn birth of Bones and Booth’s baby Christine. And, I say, one of the toughest episodes for the writers to tackle. The biggest issue — as I see it — was that much of the new baby thunder was stolen by the end-of-season birth of Michael, Angela and Hodgin’s son, last year. Obviously Christine was the higher profile birth here (for fans), but it also meant that some of the new parent storylines had already been claimed. (Michael can’t sleep, Grandpa wants to babysit, etc.) So how do you tackle introducing a second new baby in so many years? Here’s how they did it:

We picked up about six weeks into Christine’s new life as a mini-squint. (Yes, I’ve decided she’s like Brennan. She’s growing up listening to crime scene details, how can she not?!) And Brennan was dealing with separation issues. She ordered the daycare to send her pictures every half hour, had her mind on the baby several times a day (hey, let’s arrest someone — AND buy diapers!), and once she was home, sacrificed her own rest to hold Christine after being away from her for so many hours.

It's Monday night at 8 p.m.: What are YOU watching? -- POLL

It’s time to cuddle up on the couch and cure that case of the Mondays. What’s your go-to? The coveted 8 p.m. ET power hour (or two in the case of Dancing With the Stars and The Voice) has everything: pretty people scheming on Gossip Girl, rascally teens getting up to no good on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, a newborn on Bones (they’re the cutest!), not to mention the aforementioned reality TV mammoths.

So, pop quiz, PopWatchers: We’re talking live, real-time TV watching. There’s a bomb in your computer, and it will detonate if you don’t tell us where your remote lands on Monday night at 8 p.m.* What do you do? What do you do?! READ FULL STORY

'Bones' birth react: Was it as great as you'd imagined?

If you had asked me seven years ago whether Bones and Booth would ever have a baby, I would have laughed in your face at the mere suggestion. “That just wouldn’t work,” I would have said. Plus, Bones…a mother?! BUAHA!

And yet, here we are. In the past year, our beloved couple has taken more unexpected roads than a teen driver without GPS, and the most unforeseen path of them all culminated tonight with the birth of their baby girl, Christine Angela.

Now, while I expect some form of nit-picking to take place after this episode, the show’s first after a long hiatus, I’ll just say this: I personally couldn’t think of a better way for Christine, the product of a genius and a hero, to come into this world. It was exciting, tender, and, above all, one heck of a story for her to tell one day. (Not a minute old, and she’s already having adventures!) And I’m saying that as someone who’d built up the moment in my head since the end of last season, when Booth’s “I’m going to be a dad again” smile lit up my soul.

While investigating a murder, Bones and Booth found themselves inside a prison and among hardened criminals. Perfect time for your water to break, wouldn’t you say? No, not really. But there, in the middle of a prison riot with a murderer sprawled on the ground, that’s when Bones decided to declare, “I’m in labor!” With no time to spare, no available rooms at the closest inn, and no chance of stopping the baby, Booth and Bones had to settle for…a barn.
