A television series reaches middle age around its fifth or sixth season and it rests on the shoulders of the production team whether or not to get rejuvenated or quietly enter the complacency of old age, leading to a far swifter demise. Thankfully, Hart Hanson and the crew of Bones used last season as a chance to shake up the status quo in numerous ways resulting in a reset of sorts when the seventh season begins November 3. Meantime, Bones: The Complete Sixth Season was recently released by 20th Century Home Entertainment and is once more a handsome package.
The show is far more character-driven than its competitor procedurals on the other networks, so we’ve come to know and love not only the staff at the Jeffersonian and FBI agent Sealy Booth, but the interns and extended family that are part of their world. The series does not shy »

A rather infamous Bones killer will be making a couple guest appearances on ABC’s Body of Proof, but the new role is quite domestic in comparison. The series has just entered its second season, which means all the groundwork has been set; time to delve deeper in to these characters’ home lives, really get to understand who they are and what, if any, external motivations they may have.
Case in point, as TVLine reports, Deirdre Lovejoy Aka The Gravedigger from Bones has been cast as the “exhausted and a bit grouchy wife” of Det. Bud Morris (John Carroll Lynch). We’ve seen Bud and his wife’s marriage crumbling apart, but until now we’ve only seen Bud’s reaction to it. Allowing us to meet Mrs. Morris will help viewers understand what their relationship is really like when they’re together. This »

Deirdre Lovejoy has signed up for a guest appearance on Body of Proof. The Bones actress will play the potentially recurring role of Bud's wife Jeannie, according to TV Line. Described as "exhausted" and "grouchy", the character will reveal "a bit more about [Bud's] home life", according to actor John Carroll Lynch. Lovejoy played the villainous 'Gravedigger' on Fox's Bones and also starred in HBO's The Wire from 2002 to 2008. She has also played guest roles on Lie to Me, Law & (more) »

So this is funny: Body of Proof this season will reveal that Detective Bud Morris’ “ball and chain” actually used to wear a ball and chain.
TVLine has learned exclusively that ABC’s sophomore procedural has cast Deirdre Lovejoy — aka Bones serial killer Heather Taffet/”The Gravedigger” and The Wire‘s Asa Rhonda Pearlman — in the potentially recurring role of Jeannie Morris, Bud’s “exhausted and a bit grouchy wife.”
Hey, know why she’s exhausted and grouchy? Because she’s out all night digging graves in which to bury people alive.

All the hype threatened to raise expectations unfairly high, but Bones delivered with an intense, compelling episode Thursday night, the first installment of its sniper story arc.
I loved the symmetry of "The Bullet in the Brain." The introduction of a new, murderous foil for Booth dovetailed with the end of the Gravedigger, who went out in epic fashion.
The first five minutes leading up to the opening credits were awesome, plain and simple.
Pushing Sweets' buttons like a true puppet master while offering no remorse for her monstrous acts, Deirdre Lovejoy's incarcerated child killer is as creepy as a TV villain gets.
Just as she arrived in court for her appeal, her head was blown off by an unknown gunman. The effects were such that I recoiled in horror even when I knew it was coming!
The Bones producers openly admit having fun with gross-out gags to open episodes, »

"The Bullet in the Brain," David Boreanaz's third directing effort in six seasons, marks the conclusion of the gravedigger arc. And from episode title, synopsis and first images, it appears as though her appearance might be brief. Needless to say, spoilers and speculation ahead:
Convicted murder and serial suffocate-r Heather Taffet (Deirdre Lovejoy) arrives at court for her appeal early in the episode, when the long-hyped sniper makes his first appearance, presumably taking her out in the process. The brain in the episode's title is her own.
So with Taffet finally out of the way -- let's shed a tear, shall we? -- the new big bad's work is hardly over. And through some set of circumstances, »
