Back in season 2, a super badass villain was introduced in the form of The Gravedigger, who abducted people, buried them alive and then demanded ransom to reveal their location so they could be saved before they die of suffocation. The case hit close to home as The Gravedigger took Brennan and Hodgins and buried them alive. Bones eventually revisited this storyline in the fourth season in which the Gravedigger was revealed to be Assistant US Attorney Heather Taffet, who kidnapped Booth and left him for dead. And since then, Bones fans have been begging for justice to be served. Fortunately, series creator Hart Hanson has teased at Comic-Con that season 5 would feature a trial for the Gravedigger and will reveal the contents of the letter Brennan wrote when she thought she was about to die. But since the FOX procedural drama is now prepping for the final stretch of the season, will there still be room for the Gravedigger case? "We're exploring that [episode] idea because the Gravedigger, as the fans know, was set free," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells Zap2it.com. "And we're thinking there might be an attempt at trying to bring her to justice. To get rid of her once and for all. Whether that will be successful or not, we're not sure." As for the letter, most fans assume it was written to Booth. However, Nathan was very coy on the subject. "We're asking Brennan if we can see the letter, but she's not forthcoming," he joked. "Brennan won't tell us anything about it. We keep asking her. We even asked Emily [Deschanel, who plays Brennan] to ask her. We keep begging her for the answer. I don't know if she's telling us the truth or not." At least, there's comfort in knowing that the Gravedigger is not a subject producers have forgotten about. Source Here
Remember when the Gravedigger buried Brennan and Hodgins alive on season two of Bones? Many viewers do. But they're worried the show itself has forgotten. After all, we haven't seen this villain since. Fortunately, producer Stephen Nathan told Korbi Ghosh of Zap2It that this issue will be revisited. When? He wouldn't say. "We're exploring that idea because the Gravedigger, as the fans know, was set free," Nathan said. "And we're thinking there might be an attempt at trying to bring her to justice. To get rid of her once and for all. Whether that will be successful or not, we're not sure." As for that infamous letter? Nathan wouldn't even admit it was written for Booth. "We're asking Brennan if we can see the letter, but she's not forthcoming," he joked. "Brennan won't tell us anything about it. We keep asking her. We even asked Emily [Deschanel, who plays Brennan] to ask her. We keep begging her for the answer. I don't know if she's telling us the truth or not." What about other spoilers and storylines to come? "Big emotional episodes [are on the way]," Nathan teased. "After the 100th episode, Booth and Brennan's relationship will be different. We'll be exploring where they go after that episode." Source Here

You can also view promo photos and a promo that we previously posted for the episode. IT'S A BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL ON THE WINTER FINALE OF BONES THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, ON FOX.

Tonight's episode marks the winter season finale of Bones and it looks like there'll be a lot of exciting twists and turns as Joshua Malina (In Plain Sight) and Pej Vahdat guest star in "The Devil in the Details." As the title suggests, the case this week involves the remains of a man found resembling then devil which is ironically found at a church. Booth and Brennan dig deeper into the allegorizing biblical text that comes with the case and identify the victim as former patient of Dr. Adam Copeland (guest star Malina) at Havenhurst Sanitarium. But as they investigate further, they are confronted with suspects who are hard to characterize as either good or evil. Meanwhile, Jeffersonian intern Arastoo Vaziri (guest star Vahdat) reveals a secret about his past. Here's the trailer for tonight's episode just in case you missed the preview released by FOX last week: Source & Preview
* Bones (8/7c Fox) The uber-analytical Dr. Brennan has never been shy about her doubts when it comes to theology, but if she is ever going to get religion, this is the night. The series' winter finale finds the team investigating the charred remains of what appears to be a demon - complete with horns and a tail - found on the altar of a Catholic church. The case spooks the God-fearing Booth, but he and Brennan are going to have to tip over some sacred cows to get to the bottom of this mystery. Joshua Malina guest stars. * Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains : Surviving Survivor (8/7c CBS) Survivor fans are hotly anticipating the premiere of next week's 20th edition that pits memorable "heroes" and "villains" against one another. But tonight 10 of the game's most iconic players, including previous winners Richard Hatch, Parvati Shallow and Tom Westman, discuss the series in detail and provide insights into how the game is actually played and the impact it's had on their lives. In addition, updates on beloved former castaways, like Ethan Zohn, Rupert Boneham and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, are given. * Private Practice (10:01/9:01c ABC) So Maya's pregnant and wants to have the baby. What to do now? Dink (Stephen Lunsford), the boy who did his part to get her into this predicament, has a solution: He wants to marry her. You can imagine how Sam and Naomi will feel about that. And if that won't raise the histrionic level enough for you, how about this: A couple has two dying daughters, and only one can be saved. Their choice. And Brian Benben is back, so expect more Pete-Violet-Sheldon angst. Rosanna Arquette guest stars. * The Office (9/8c NBC) There's some Sabre rattling when modern-era corporate wheeling, dealing and spieling impact Dunder Mifflin. Enter Sabre, a mysterious company headed by an unorthodox, magnetic CEO (Kathy Bates), which comes in and buys out the sinking paper outfit. Michael, never one to embrace change, balks at Sabre's new policies. Meanwhile, Andy and Erin - their potential romance still not off the ground - write a song to welcome the company. In Jim-and-Pam news, the marrieds hope for acceptance from a local day-care center. * Why We Laugh: Black Comedians on Black Comedy (8/7c Showtime ) Robert Townsend, who directed, produced, co-wrote and starred in the inspired 1987 satire Hollywood Shuffle, about black actors trying to break into show business, codirected this documentary about the evolution of black comedy. The survey spans the early days of minstrel shows to the controversial humor of Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory, and on to popular 1970s sitcoms to the current batch of contemporary comics in the Def Comedy vein. Among those chiming in are Bill Cosby and Whoopi Goldberg. The 2008 film is not rated but contains strong language. Source Here

We've got one more Bones episode until the winter hiatus, and that means that after this Thursday's episode, our favorite show will not be back on until April 8. I know, right? That will be exactly 62 days that we will be without Booth and Bones and the rest of the Squints. I personally do not know how I'm going to get through it yet, but, for now, I figured I'd expound on my theories for the hundredth episode given some clues I've seen in the past few episodes.

Not surprisingly, everyone wants a piece of Conan O' Brien. The short-lived host of The Tonight Show, who was recently embroiled in the NBC-Jay Leno controversy, is now a hot commodity as more and more TV shows are showing interest in hiring the 46-year-old comedian. "I would like Conan [O'Brien] to come and write on the show," Bones series creator Hart Hanson tell Zap2it.com. Though Bones is a crime procedural series, the idea of O'Brien working on Bones doesn't really seem that far-fetched. After all, word on the street is that FOX is developing a late night show for O'Brien as soon as his NBC contract is up this fall. Of course, Hanson isn't also ruling out a possible cameo. "Maybe we could find the world's tallest skeleton," the Bones producer said. "Flash back to [it being] Conan... His entire body was oppositely scalped. The only thing left is the [red] hair." Meanwhile, Hanson isn't the only producer who wants O'Brien on his show. Kurt Sutter, the brains behind FX's Sons of Anarchy, has also revealed last month that he would love to have O'Brien play a part in an IRA storyline for season 3. You can learn more about Sutter's invitation to O'Brien here. Source Here
The latest piece of Bones casting news is a dream come true for horror movie fans. Or a nightmare, we should say. Robert Englund has signed on to guest star on a slasher-themed episode of the show this spring. The actor is best known for originating the role of Freddy Krueger. On the episode, Englund will portray a creepy custodian at Brennan's old high school. After initially planning on skipping her reunion there, Bnes changes her mind when a murder causes her and Booth to investigate the scene. It was also confirmed this week that American Idol champion Jordin Sparks, among others, will appear on Bones this season. Source Here
