Bones Sneak Peek: Is a Paralyzed Hodgins Rushing His Return to Work?

Bones‘ Hodgins isn’t letting a life-changing accident come between him and his beloved bugs when the Fox crime drama (finally) returns this Thursday at 8/7c.

Despite his doctor’s orders, the now paralyzed entomologist pays a visit to his friends at the Jeffersonian. And as you’ll see in TVLine’s exclusive video, he quickly finds himself jumping back into the murder-solving game.

But while everyone is thrilled to see their colleague — and to have a correct time of death for their victim — Hodgins’ excited announcement that he’s going to continue working the case draws looks of concern that suggest maybe it’s all too much, too soon.
