Bones Sneak Peek: Who Needs a Hug?

With Booth and Brennan on the outs and breaking fans’ hearts on Bones, we could all use comforting. But perhaps no one is more in need of a warm embrace than the G-man himself, as seen in TVLine’s exclusive video from Thursday’s episode (Fox, 8/7c).

While Brennan’s busy with work, Booth plays Hug Monster with Christine as the two spend some quality daddy-daughter time together. The fun, however, quickly turns from sweet to sad as Christine begs her mom, “Can’t daddy stay? Please?” (Way to deliver a gut punch, little one!)

But go he must — to a meeting — after one seriously awkward hug goodbye with Brennan.

Press PLAY above to watch the sneak peek, then hit the comments with your thoughts on Booth’s “determined” efforts to make good. (He even got his wife and baby coconut ice cream!)
