Bones: 5 Things to Know About “The Brother in the Basement”

Wow, Bones really knows how to do a season premiere.
Last night's episode (spoilers for "The Loyalty in the Lie" follow) saw Brennan facing extreme pressure to prove to the lab - and to herself - that the charred remains of their latest victim were not those of her husband.
While Brennan worked to uncover the identity of the man who so closely resembled Booth as to be his doppelganger (or brother as it turned out) Booth was fighting to bring his brother's Navy pals to justice, becoming critically injured in the process.
Meanwhile, Aubrey and Caroline were becoming more and more suspicious of Agent Grace Miller, and Arastoo's future at the lab seemed less certain with each passing hour.
The story picks up the pieces again in next Thursday's "The Brother in the Basement," an episode which will give fans an insight into Booth's very bad day, and the team's continued efforts to locate him before time runs out.
We've seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends over at FOX, and have 5 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 5 things you might like to know about Bones' upcoming "The Brother in the Basement."
4. Arastoo’s Dilemma
We’ve been feeling a little sorry for Arastoo lately. His misstep in identifying the remains of Booth’s brother Jared have caused him to doubt whether he’s suitable material for heading up the lab in Brennan’s place, and things won’t get any easier on that front for him this week.
We’ll see Arastoo asking why Cam didn’t submit his candidacy for the position months ago. Her answer will cause him to doubt not only his ability for the job, but his position at the Jeffersonian in general. Expect to see some shock-waves here that will resonate in episodes to come.
This is big stuff for Cam and Arastoo.
