After what seems like forever (well it has been two months) both Bones and Fringe are back this Thursday April 1st, no fooling around... bad joke I apologise. I have missed both crime solving gangs and both shows have some exciting episodes coming up so there will be some mild spoilers ahead.
First up Fringe ended the last episode on somewhat of a cliffhanger with Olivia realising that Peter is actually from the other universe and with this Thursdays episode being entitled 'Peter' and all the promo photos such as the one above flashing back to the 70s we can be sure to see some more development and answers as to the Peter/Walter relationship and how he got Peter between the two worlds. The stories that involve Massive Dynamic, William Bell and the other universe are my favourites as they are often much stronger and more emotive than the 'monster of the week' ones which can sometimes feel out of place. Though I am looking forward to the April 29th musical episode 'Overture' which will feature an all singing and dancing cast. Random episodes like this have been shown to be brilliant with a show like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I'm hoping for similar results with Fringe, especially as I'm not a big musicals fan.
With Bones the first episode back on Thursday looks like it will be a regular case with more information being shed on Brennan as an author and with Sweets dealing with a near death experience. It is however, next weeks episode that is highly anticipated. This episode entitled 'The Parts in the Sum of the Whole' is Bones 100th and is directed by Booth himself David Boreanaz which automatically makes it special. The reason it is being touted as a Bones event is because the case is a flashback to when Booth and Brennan first worked together and so will see the return of Zack (Eric Millegan) and of Hodgins super curly hair. This case marks an important point in Booth and Brennan's relationship and will explain why in the pilot episode she was reluctant to work with him. I have managed to stay somewhat unspoiled as to what occurred on this first case, I could have a guess but I'm not going to put it here and I am really looking forward to this trip down memory lane.
