Why are there so many crime TV stories these days about acapella groups? Blame “Pitch Perfect” for that, not that we really mind since these are typically a good time. We had this first with “Castle” and “Tone Death” earlier this season, and we’re going to be getting it with the upcoming May 19 episode of “Bones” entitled “The Strike in the Chord.”
Based on the synopsis below, it appears as though there’s going to be more than a few developments even beyond a certain musical case, especially when it comes to the return of Parker and also Hodgins trying to make a few surprising steps in his recovery:
“The team investigates the death of the leader of the Lynwood University male acapella singing group, “The Whippersnaps,” whose body was found in the school rat lab. The victim recently kicked out Ian Jansen, one of the group’s best singers (guest star Jordan Fisher), sending Booth and Aubrey to question Ian and other current members of the male group (including guest stars Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying) and some stars of the competing female acapella group (including guest star Kirstin Maldonado) to get a handle on the group dynamics and what could have led to the murder of one of their own. Meanwhile, surprising information about Aubrey’s own college experience is brought to light, Hodgins applies for an experimental nerve regeneration study, Booth tries to plan a summer trip with Parker (guest star Gavin MacIntosh) and a new intern joins the Jeffersonian lab (guest star B.K. Cannon).”
One thing that we do wish we got a better sense of in this synopsis is whether or not we were going to get some of the regulars singing in some capacity, mostly because we do find that much more entertaining than anything else. Trust us when we say that we’ll have so much more news on this episode as soon as we find out about it.
