Did You Know?


In this episode, Zooey Deschanel guest-stars as Temperance Brennan's cousin. Through out the episode, the cast often makes jokes about the resemblance of Zooey and Emily Deschanel's characters, even saying they could be sisters, when in reality they are. See more »


Owen Thiel: A man died this week. By all accounts, he was a... good man. Loved his mother. Worked hard. Shouldered his responsibilities. Man that any one of us would be proud to call a friend. I killed him, with this microphone. I killed him by going on these airwaves and sharing my rage with you, spreading my rage. Now, you can say it wasn't my fault. It was coincidence. I thought about that. Thought about it a lot. Fact is - the fact is that if it weren't for me, he might still be alive. I'm so sorry for...

The One Where Santa Blew Up...
2 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It makes me laugh because of Zooey Deschanel being in it, but it also makes me sad because of the fact that Santa Claus blew up into a million pieces.

In this episode, we see a man dressed up in a Santa Claus suit, rob a bank and then explode. Turns out that he was being blackmailed into robbing the bank, but the mean blackmailer blew him up anyway. Also, the main reason I love this episode, Zooey Deschanel joins her sister Emily in this fun episode. Zooey plays Bones' distant relative, and throughout the entire episode, people compare them to being sisters. A fun little Easter Egg hiding throughout. Not really an Easter Egg, but that's what I'm calling it.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
