Summary: An undercover mission at a couples retreat to probe the death of a management consultant.
Guest starring: John Ratzenberger (Cheers, Toy Story trilogy)
Last week’s episode, we saw the struggle between Booth and Bones as he tries to get Bones to forgive him for breaking off the engagement. At the end she does, with the promise that know he will propose to when he can.
By the end of the show, it looks like Booth/Bones get their relationship back on track.
Sweets, on the other hand, is struggling with his confidence as Pallant was able to outsmart him in Season 8 finale. He keeps trying to hard and failing at his job.
Cam is in for a long road ahead of her as someone stole her identity. It’s unsure of who it is (but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Pallant. Rumor has it that the Pallant case will be resolved by Christmas). If it’s not him, then I would imagine that whoever it is, it’s going to be some kind of twist to the story.
