After last week's big pregnancy bomb, Bones will reveal yet another startling news as Booth's brother, Jared, (guest star Brendan Fehr) returns from his travels in the 13th episode of the fifth season entitled "The Dentist in the Ditch." Meanwhile, this week's case alone already involves a lot of surprises.
Just like any other Bones episode, tonight's installment kicks off with the discovery of human remains only this time it's in the trenches of an old Civil War reenactment site. Brennan and Booth are called to the case and Brennan quickly identifies that the bones belong to a present-day local dentist named Dan Pinard.
Brennan and Booth question Chris Fife (Cameron Bender), the disgruntled ex-boyfriend of a dentist whose skeleton was found buried at a Civil War reenactment site as one of the suspects in the murder case. At the same time, Hodgins and lab intern Vincent Nigel-Murray (guest star Ryan Cartwright) work persistently to clean the bones of a stubborn clay residue which is preventing the team from determining a cause of death.
