Bones‘ fifth episode in season 8 “The Method in the Madness” was a Sweets (John Francis Daley) heavy episode and explored the artisan business. It’s time for the weekly recap of Bones and its amusing episode.

With possibly its best opening in its eight seasons, Bones captivated viewers with two garbage men singing while a body falls out of the truck.

Cut to Sweets casually sleeping in his office when Booth (David Boreanaz) stops by with a case and becomes concerned for his mental health. Booth offers a place to stay for “a night or two.” We’ll see how long this lasts.

As seen in the clip posted by Hypable previously, Booth informs Brennan (Emily Deschanel) about the change, who seems fine with it saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.”

Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) notes the murder timeline, and warns that Sweets is never dating anyone again. Do you want him to get together with FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling (Danielle Panabaker) or back together with Daisy (Carla Gallo)?

Cam (Tamara Taylor) deduces that the victim was alive when her skin was eviscerated. Meanwhile squintern Colin Fisher (Joel David Moore), Hodgins, and Brennan debate the brutality of the Incas. It looks like Angela (Michaela Conlin) will have to put the face back together piece by piece.

Is there anything more adorable than Sweets staying in Parker Booth’s (Ty Panitz) room? He looks so lost.

As seen in the other clip discussed by Hypable, Hodgins starts a pool to guess on how long Sweets will last as a house-guest. Angela believes Sweets will be adopted, validating the Parker analogy.

The victim Jessica is a co-owner of Them Apples, a store which Brennan and Angela frequent. Her business partner Brooke is a close friend and reveals that Jessica had lupus and made frequent visits to a clinic. She directs them towards an angry butcher Adam who brought Jessica free meat. He says he was threatened by a man to stop talking to Jessica and gets upset at claims that his meat is not agro-friendly.

Jessica had $2,000 in sequential bills on her when she died, after appearing at a farmer’s market. Cam rules out that the victim had lupus.

Viewers get to enjoy a cute Christine (Susanne Allan Hartman) sighting while Brennan tells Sweets to stay with them instead of living at a hotel, basing her argument on his praise of craftsmanship and past job at a record store. Do you agree with her logic?

Sweets has turned into quite the helpful house-guest, even doing Booth and Brennan’s laundry. Fans can rest easy knowing Booth wears Captain America underwear.

According to Dr. Reese, Jessica got tested each month for STDs, leading Sweets to determine she was a prostitute on the side.

Mr. Fisher rules out the butcher as the killer is right-handed and draws a parallel between the murder and Jack the Ripper (the victim was a prostitute and her throat was split). He works late into the night under the watch of a lantern, being a bit creepy and reminding us of fan-favorite Zack (Eric Millegan).

Sweets oversteps his boundaries by bathing in Booth and Brennan’s bathroom and appears only in a towel. Is this on Tumblr yet? Meanwhile Mr. Fisher stops by to show the victim was restrained, while Brennan leisurely enjoys her wine. Looks to be a fun night in the Booth-Brennan household. Do you want to live there now?

Dr. Reese has an arrest record for solicitation, moving him to the top of the suspect list. They arrive at his home, only to find him in a top hat with a knife while a woman in lingerie is restrained and frightened. Reese denies his guilt but instead admits to hiring women, including Jessica, to roleplay his fantasies.

Reese points to a larger man who scared him and locked him in his closet. He echoes the same claim that Adam the butcher made.

Sweets apologizes for his behavior the previous night and is looking for his own apartment. Using his psychology skills, he theorizes that the large man is a former client of Jessica who has become obsessed with her. Angela identifies the man using a traffic cam.

Willis turns himself in and is Jessica’s sort-of uncle who was watching out for her. He acted on her behalf with the butcher and charged into the doctor’s home when he heard Jessica’s scream. He offered her a deal for her to move to Baltimore if she stopped prostituting herself.

The victim was cut 18 times and remained in one position; thus leading the Jeffersonian team to theorize that her death was caused by a machine. Booth and Brennan issue a warrant to co-owner Brooke and discover the murder weapon. Jessica revealed that she wanted to sell and take Willis’ deal and in anger, Brooke slapped her and Jessica fell in.

Booth invites Sweets to stay as long as he doesn’t take his scotch. Sweets suspects that Booth just wants to win the bet while Brennan thinks he has to dance and celebrate. Brennan and Sweets engage in celebratory dancing capping off an amusing episode.

 

Favorite Lines:

“I don’t have a box for infinity. The furthest I have is a month.” (Hodgins referring to the bet.)

“An occasional prostitute, interesting.” (Mr. Fisher referring to the victim.)

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
