Bones Photos: Zack (Literally) Needles Brennan in Final Season Premiere

Bones Season 12

It looks like Zack is trying to cut Bones‘ farewell season short.

So, what potentially nefarious plans does he have in store for Brennan when the Fox drama returns Jan. 3? We can’t say for sure, but we think it might have something to do with the needle he’s holding in this first batch of photos from the 12th (and final) season premiere.

Also pictured: Booth attempting to rescue Brennan, as well as Booth working alongside Agent Aubrey and behavior analyst Karen Delfs (played by Impastor‘s Sara Rue).
