Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: A Revolutionary War captain walks into a lab run by a socially awkward genius… and we’ve got your exclusive first look at their meeting.
Above is a photo from Fox’s upcoming Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover, a two-hour event that finds Brennan, Booth, Ichabod and Abbie collaborating as the discovery of human remains leads to the return of one of Crane’s enemies.
During a recent visit to the set, Sleepy star Tom Mison told TVLine that he and Bones‘ Emily Deschanel had “just shot this morning a rather nice scene where Ichabod questions Brennan on faith and art and love, and can they be reduced to numbers?
“It actually worked really rather nicely, ’cause they’re quite similar, actually. I hadn’t really realized it until I started working with Emily, that Brennan and Ichabod are very similar,” he said, laughing. “Which is probably why they’re destined not to get along.”
Give the photo above a good going-over, then hit the comments: Isn’t it oddly cool to see Crane and Brennan interacting? And are you looking forward to the Oct. 29 crossover episodes? — With reporting by Vlada Gelman
