Another #Bones True/False Teaser : @BonesOnFox #702: “The Hot Dog In The Competition”

by Jim on October 14, 2011 · 15 comments

Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz

@HartHanson @SquareChicken Since the True and False teaser post I did for episode 701, ‘The Memories In The Shallow Grave,” of the new Bones season was such a hit with all you Bones fanatics (thanks for all the great comments!!), I thought I’d do the same with episode 702, “The Hot Dog in the Competition.” Having just watched it this morning, I am already feeling that this could be one of the strongest seasons of Bones to date. I may be setting myself up by saying that but the one concern – that having Booth and Brennan involved romantically would kill the show – is long gone having now seen these episodes and seeing how their relationship and impending baby is only adding more fun and layers to an already great show.

So, without further adieu….here are some True and False questions about “The Hot Dog In The Competition.”

  1. Rats and snakes are both very present in this sometimes gruesome episode.
  2. Somebody learns the sex of the Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) baby.
  3. New squint Finn Abernathy (played wonderfully by Luke Kleintank) gets off on the wrong foot by getting in a fist fight with a Jeffersonian administrator (played by series creator Hart Hanson)
  4. Booth and Brennan have a case/baby pow-wow at the Royal Diner.
  5. Bones does not let her pregnancy get in the way of some very aggressive behavior with a suspect in the case of the week.
  6. Sweets (John Francis Daley) goes undercover in a hot dog eating competition but loses to an overzealous winner, played by Executive Producer Stephen Nathan.
  7. A familiar face from past Bones seasons pops up in this episode and has a warning for one of our regulars.
  8. Baby Hodgins is seen wearing a onesy with Terra Nova on the front.
  9. Someone at the Jeffersonian comes up with a TV-centric nickname for new squint Finn.
  10. After much investigation, the dead corpse in the episode is identified as Hannah (Katheryn Winnick).
  11. There’s a hot and heavy love scene in the episode between Booth and Brennan.

The BONES cast returns in the Season Seven premiere of BONES airing Thursday, Nov. 3 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT) on FOX

Which did you pick as True and which did you laugh at but know it’s FALSE?  Here are the answers…well, most of them….

  1. TRUE. I’m usually all for the gory and gross but even this episode had a few moments where I had to be prepared to look away.
  2. TRUE. Can’t say more than that but…well, that’s all I can say.
  3. FALSE. OK, maybe it’s a tip off whenever I suggest either Hanson or Stephen Nathan make a cameo but I just want to see them pop up in a show! Don’t you?
  4. TRUE.  I kinda like these scenes more and more since there’s so much more going on in their relationship.
  5. TRUE. Again, can’t tell you in what context but even I was impressed with one moment where Brennan does not exactly act pregnant.
  6. FALSE.  See #3.
  7. TRUE. But I can’t tell you who or what but regular viewers will know this character immediately.
  8. FALSE. At least I didn’t say New Girl this time, right?
  9. TRUE. Gotta tell ya, Finn is a really great addition to the show. He’ll grow on your quick in the best of ways. Thumbs up, Mr. Kleintank!
  10. FALSE. Oh, but how many of you wanted it to be true just so there’s truly no way she can ever come back?
  11. The answer is….I’M NOT TELLING. Yes, I am being a master teaser here but you’ll have to wait for the episode to air soon to find out the answer.

As most of you know, the new season of Bones airs Thursday, November 3rd on Fox. “The Hot Dog In The Competition” is scheduled to air November 10th.

DAMN YOU, JIM HALTERMAN FOR #11 YOU EVIL MAN! LOL But I thank you for the season 7 tidbits! BTW, I got 10/11 correct! (Because although I’d love for #11 to be true, I’m convinced it will be false) 😉

I would LOVE to see HH or SN or maybe even both of them in one of the episodes. Wouldn’t it be great to see them standing in the background mopping the floor in totally uncool janitor outfits?
I wasn’t so sure about this new guy, but everyone who already saw the eps seems to like him, so I guess it’s gonna be okay. I trust your judgement after all….
Does someone will learn the sex of the baby mean that we will find out, or just that someone on the show knows but doesn’t tell us?

I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks for doing this again! OH, and thanks for making up for episode 1’s #10.. this #10 was much much better!!! A lot of people would want the answer to #11…. personally, I appreciate your answer. It is always good to have a surprise here and there. I’ll just make sure to have a small paper bag ready in case there is hyperventilating involved… lol 🙂

Getting more, and more excited about season 7. And wracking my brain trying to figure out spoiler clues; very excited!

I think I love you. #ThatIsAll

I think the character that returns with a warn could be Cindy Lauper….It would be great!

Alison October 15, 2011 at 9:05 am

Thanks for doing this

Answer #2: Sweets knows the sex of the baby. It’s a girl. Sweets reveals that sex of the baby during the interrogation of a suspect. ( the guy is disappointed not to see Brennan in the room).

Answer #11. Idk if it’s when it’s the scene where they are making out and got interrupted or IF it’s the scene where they find out the sex of the baby and they shared a kiss. Emotional Brennan in that scene (apparently)

I love these T/F posts, I think you should do one for every episode. So much fun.

I think it’s interesting that the first two promo pics have bottles in them, but she obviously doesn’t have a baby bump

Liz November 8, 2011 at 10:48 am

This is torture! But I loved it. Thanks!

Nomo November 8, 2011 at 11:07 am

God I so wanted #10 to be true but that would be giving away too much of the episode. lol

Jana November 8, 2011 at 1:20 pm

Bones is my fav show! I was smiling all through the promos and I am so happy B&B are finally together 🙂
I think that the recurring character is probably Fry as the psychiatrist. And I hope the baby is a girl that they name Christine after Brennan’s mother. That would be really nice 🙂
I haven’t seen the first episode yet but it sounds amazing. It doesn’t come to me until January 31st.
I hope #11 is true, that would be great!
