'Bones': Zooey Deschanel guest stars as Brennan's cousin! Season 5, Episode 10

Holiday goodness, Zooey Deschanel, and David Boreanaz in his boxers? "Bones" combined three of my favorite things this week.

I was especially happy to see Zooey Deschanel on the show, since she's adorable, she's vegan too, and most importantly she's half of the band that put out my very favorite new album last year. She's also Emily Deschanel's sister, so this guest appearance has been a long time coming, if you ask me.

The Case: We start out with a bang (too easy?) as a man dressed as Santa with a bomb strapped to his chest robs a bank, only to blow up in the street when cornered by Booth. Santa AND a blizzard of money? How festive! Booth isn't injured, but a taxi driver is sent to the hospital and a nearby young woman is covered in, well, bomber, and has to be thoroughly de-bomberfied before she can shower, in case she has evidence on her. GROSS.

Seems the bomb was triggered from afar, on a radio frequency used by an anti-capitalist, anti-government speechifier who, unsurprisingly, is all talk. The bomb was actually locked to Holden, an exterminator, when someone forced him to dress like Santa and rob the bank. And by "someone," I mean the young woman and the taxi driver! Dun dun dunnnnn!

Georgia, it turns out, had bomb-making materials under her fingernails when they examined her, though in interrogation she creepily/confidently promises that she didn't blow Holden up. Nor did the taxi driver, though his injuries showed that he clearly anticipated the explosion. The explosion itself was accidentally set off earlier than planned by Speechifier's radio show operating on a similar frequency to the cab radio detonator. Oops?
