‘Bones’ season 9, episode 8 preview: First look at ‘The Dude in the Dam,’ move to Fridays

What's ahead -“Bones” season 9 is getting set for a big change, and we are not just talking about Booth and Brennan being a married couple. The show is instead moving to Friday nights, where it will for a new lineup in hopes of giving Fox some real traction that they have not had on the night in some time, save for maybe “MasterChef Junior” (which fared decently, all things considered).

What makes the last episode to air on a Monday in “The Dude in the Dam” so particularly interesting is that this is actually an episode that was filmed last year during season 8, and then kept over to this year. There’s not really going to be any sort of reference to the wedding here unless there was some work after the fact, but there could at least still be a fun case worth checking out.

Want to know more? Then allow the synopsis below to be your guide:

“The Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a failed male model, whose only source of income resulted from his sperm donations. When the team learns that he falsified records, they start to suspect anyone who was jilted by his contributions. Meanwhile, Brennan struggles with social niceties when she is drawn into a feud with fellow author Tess Brown (guest star Nora Dunn), and Hodgins gets in Touch with his motherly instincts when he plays host to a fly larva.”

The promo below is also sure to mention the move to Friday, which is in our mind a great strategy to do so this early. Thanks to this, there is no longer going to be an issue of people complaining that Fox didn’t make the announcement in enough time. Clearly the network thinks that they can get better ratings with another show, but it is still to be seen if that is actually true.

What do you what to see in “The Dude in the Dam,” and how upset are you about “Bones” being forced to shift over to Friday nights? Do you think it will still fare well? Share below, and click here to read our full review of Monday’s episode.
