Dr. Temperance Brennan and FBI Agent Seeley Booth are going undercover in Bones season 12 episode 6.
In an episode titled, The Flaw In The Saw, the dismembered body of successful golfer-turned-lumberjack Phyllis Paul (Melissa Tracy) was found by the authorities. The team’s investigation leads them to a lumberjack contest – the Lumber Sports Regional Championships.
The episode 6 promo shows Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) arrive at the competition to question a suspect. While at the event, the couple discovers several secrets in the competition that may have played a role in Phyllis’s murder including an illicit affair with a married opponent.
However, investigating in a competition, where most people are wielding chainsaw may not be an easy one. The clip shows Booth telling Brennan that they should wait for their suspect to put down her electric saw before accusing her of murder.
Doing undercover themselves has been a thing for Brennan and Booth. In the past seasons, they have done several covert investigations to find the real culprit in their case.
Bones season 12 episode 6 teaser also shows the world renowned anthropologist cracking a science joke. FBI agent James Aubrey (John Boyd), on the other hand, is making fun of the work often used by lumberjacks – lumberjacking, the International Business Times wrote.
Meanwhile, Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne) secretly analyzes the bacteria on the bone of a previous victim that he believes will exonerate Dr. Zack Addy (Eric Millegan). Brennan’s protégée was accused of helping serial killer Gormogon finding the lobbyist, whom the latter killed.
In the premiere episode of season 12, Zack confessed to Brennan and Booth that he did not kill the lobbyist. He asked his friends to reinvestigate the case. Will Zack finally be freed and rejoin the team in the show’s final season?
