Get ready for a Halloween Spooktacular (sorry) with Bones’ “The Resurrection in the Remains” on Oct. 29.

This fun and intriguing installment offers a double murder mystery, some Halloween pranks, a 200 year old mystery, and a guest appearance by Sleepy Hollow’s Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie as the duo come to the Jeffersonian to claim to claim a headless body already under investigation by Brennan and her team.

Together the foursome must figure out how to work together in order to discover who the 200-year-old headless corpse is, and how it is linked to a contemporary murder victim.

We’ve seen the episode a little early (in addition to David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel’s follow up guest appearance on Sleepy Hollow’s “Dead Men Tell No Tales”) thanks to our friends over at FOX, and have 6 Halloween teasers to share with you.

If you’re a regular reader of these types of articles here at ScreenSpy, then you’ll know we do our best to avoid spoiling major developments and plot lines that might otherwise ruin your enjoyment of the episode (we want you to enjoy it as much as we did).

For that reason, we consider the following carefully structured and worded points to be teasers rather than outright spoilers.

However, as always, we urge you to be cautious, as one man’s teaser is another man’s spoiler.

Here then are 6 things you might like to know about Bones’ upcoming “The Resurrection in the Remains.”

Does the Whole Crossover Angle Really Work?

In a word? Yes.

In many ways this crossover is a holiday special like many we’ve seen in the past. There’s a double murder, a list of suspects, a series of investigations, some surprise guests (in the form of Sleepy Hollow’s Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie), and some fun moments between Brennan and Booth. And it’s all set against the backdrop of Halloween. What’s not to love?

Bones fans are pretty used to the question of science vs religion/the supernatural/the afterlife/ghosts popping up from time to time on the show – as evidenced time and time again through the belief systems of its two main characters, and there’s nothing in “The Resurrection in the Remains” that will require fans to step outside of their comfort zones for this one.

Sleepy Hollow fans likewise will see their favorite investigative duo at the top of their game, as Abbie Mills tenaciously follows a lead, while Ichabod charms, befuddles and irritates practically everyone around him.

Answers will be rooted out. Suspects will confess. Friendships will be forged, and common ground will be explored.

Our advice? Sit back and enjoy a comfortable ride.
