Tomorrow night’s episode of Bones, “The Pathos in the Pathogens”, the team faces a viral outbreak that jolts the Jeffersonian. When one of their own is affected, everyone races to not only solve the case, but find a cure.
“The stakes are incredibly high”, Emily Deschanel shared with TVLine . “One of our own” — Arastoo — “is affected and faces possible death,” the actress previews. “And since Cam, who we are so close to, loves him and is facing losing him, it’s incredibly terrible to think about.” As Brennan and her team race to crack the case at hand (as a means to developing an antidote that will squash the bug), Booth struggles with being shut out of the process. “We kind of go into lockdown mode, so even though he is very concerned and is threatening to show up, he’s not going to be let in.” Instead, the G-man does anything he can “from outside the Jeffersonian,” Deschanel says, “because we won’t be able to solve the case without him.”
