Bones Season 8 Review “The Diamond in the Rough/The Archaeologist in the Cocoon” – Two Episodes, Three Murders

In this two-hour mid-season premiere of Bones, featuring two episodes called “The Diamond in the Rough” and “The Archaeologist in the Cocoon” the gang solves three separate murders, two in this century and one from thousands of years ago.

In the first episode, Booth and Brennan go under cover at a dance competition and we find out that Booth used to teach dancing to pay his way through college. That is not something I ever would have guessed in a million years, but once he explained that it was his mother who taught him, it started to make a little more sense.

Meanwhile Angela is still struggling with the fact that she’s an artist but not doing what she loves, so Hodgins and Cam come up with a way for her to have a bit of both worlds. I’m so happy to see them going back to Angela’s artistic roots as we’ve been missing mention of that for a long time now.
