Get ready to meet a new Squintern on February 25th episode of Bones.

“The Fact in the Fiction” sees Brennan and Booth taking on the strange case of a body found at a farm, which a young man claims to be his own – just from the future. Meanwhile, a new Squint, Oliver Wells, begins work at the Jeffersonian.

We spoke to Brennan’s Emily Deschanel last week, who told us a little more about the episode.

“Oliver Wells is played by Brian Klugman, and he is a very interesting intern.  Oliver Wells comes in, and he is an out-of-the-box thinker. He has multiple degrees. He challenges Brennan like nobody has challenged her before. He challenges her to think outside the box. He’s a really fun character and super smart. Brennan questions whether he’s smarter than she is, which is new and different as well.

Most of the interns, they’re all so different, but they all kind of defer to Brennan and respect her. Not that he doesn’t respect me; but they kind of defer to Brennan and give her that authority. He challenges everything. He doesn’t need this job. He has multiple degrees. He almost has his forensic anthropology degree, but not quite. He thinks outside the box and knows about so many different disciplines.  He questions everything, and that’s a refreshing character to have in the lab.

Brian does a great job playing it, and he’s fun to have onset.  It’s very fun to see Brennan challenged in that way, and you see that very rarely anywhere, but especially with interns.  I think it’s going to be a real exciting episode to see.”

Meet Oliver Wells Monday February 25th (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
