An unusual case involving a robot polarizes opinion in the Jeffersonian this week as Brennan and Booth investigate the death of Ian Goldberg, head of Social Cybernetics, a tech firm on the cusp of providing companions for profoundly autistic children.
With such a noble calling, and a bright future ahead, the team question why someone would want to murder the company's boss. And if not some one, could the murderer be AMI, the company's empathetic AI at the center of their groundbreaking development?
As the investigation unfolds, the mystery brings out varied thoughts and feelings on the future of artificial intelligence among the team.
Meanwhile, as Brennan's 40th birthday looms, she decides to shake things up with some secret plans of her own.
We've seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at FOX, and have a collection of teasers to share with you. As always, our report steers clear of outright spoilers, plot reveals and any major character moments that might ruin your enjoyment of the live experience. We do suggest proceeding with caution though, as we're keenly aware that one person's teaser is another's spoiler and all that. Besides, who are these ScreenSpy people anyway?
Hodgins’ Is Injured … Again
We were thrown for a collective loop last season when Hodgins lost the use of his legs following a deadly explosion which almost cost both he and Aubrey their lives.
This week, Hodgins finds himself back in the field where during an impetuous moment with some lab equipment, he succumbs to another injury.
Don’t worry. This eyebrow raising (or should we say razing?) accident will only make you laugh. Promise!
