‘Bones’ season 8 spoilers: A touch of irony

If there’s one show out there that effortlessly combines a little bit of humor with some classic whodunit cases, it’s “Bones” — and we’re going to see another prime example of this during the second episode of this coming season.

According to a new report from Zap2It, the second episode of the fall is going to be about divorce — at least in the form of a powerful male divorce attorney who is found dead. Now, of course, comes the twist — at some point during the case, it is uncovered that his wife was having a secret affair with his secretary Margo. If you thought that it was he bosses who were the ones constantly having affairs, this story is sending you a rather loud message to “think again.”

Are Booth and Brennan going to be on better terms during this episode? We hope so, but we certainly don’t expect everything to be smoothed out just yet. Brennan is only going to return during the first episode after several months away, and David Boreanaz’s character still is going to be none too pleased about her absence. Rebuilding bridges is going to be a key element of this story, and are main curiosity is based around just how quickly these two (who are still together) are going to be able to do so and move forward with their work. There’s also a child thrown in here that they now have to worry about.
