Bones And Booth Kick Off Season 4 In The UK
It did not disappoint! Tonight’s 2 hour season premiere finds our main duo in England – Booth for a presentation at Scotland Yard; Bones for a speaking engagement at Oxford. With their British counterparts – the British Bones Dr. Ian Wexler (guest star Andrew Buchan) and the British Booth Cate Pritchard (needs-her-own-show Indira Varma) – Brennan and Booth set out to solve the mystery behind the death of an American heiress whose car was found in the Thames. The storyline takes a surprising twist at the end of the first hour when the murder investigation heads in a completely different direction, leading the way for a suspenseful second hour.
In other news – Angela’s husband Birembau makes a visit that has damaging ramifications for everyone involved. It’s really great to see other characters interact with Sweets, too. I love the Booth and Bones couples’ counseling scenes, but when Cam or Angela goes to Sweets for advice, it really shows what a good decision it was for John Francis Daley to join the cast.
That said, I did miss Zach. His interaction with Hodgins was an important part of the show, so I hope that the writers can kind of recover from that before too long.
All told, they’ve laid the groundwork for a very exciting season and I can’t wait to see where they take us next!
