When Booth (David Boreanaz) and Bones (Emily Deschanel) work a case at a couples retreat in an upcoming episode, they’re going to run into someone whose name Cheers fans certainly know.
EW has learned exclusively that John Ratzenberger, who played Cliff on the long-running NBC comedy, is set to appear in the second episode of Bones‘s ninth season, playing Bill Schumacher, who with his wife Ethel goes to a couples retreat to work on a few personal problems. The catch? Bill and Ethel have a secret double life that they will struggle to keep private.

Bones stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel stopped by the EW studio at Comic-Con to discuss what we can expect in the show’s ninth season.
When we last saw the dynamic duo, Booth broke off his engagement to Brennan after Pelant (Andrew Leeds) threatened to kill five innocent people if he didn’t.
“We come back in the season opener and it still hasn’t been resolved. Brennan’s clearly very upset about the situation,” Deschanel explains. “It may take a while for them to be in a good place.”
Boreanaz also tells EW we’ll see new friends of Booth’s who will “change the outlook for where he is presently.” Watch the interview below! READ FULL STORY

WARNING: This article contained details about tonight’s season finale of Bones. Haven’t seen it? Don’t read this! But come back later…
The season finale of Bones was a killer. Yes, there was the carnage we usually expect from any Bones episode that welcomes back psycho hacker Pelant (Andrew Leeds) but there was also emotional carnage.
Bones wraps up its current season tonight with an episode that’s going to show fans just how bad computer hacker madman Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) can be. And Emily Deschanel couldn’t be prouder of the fact that eight seasons in, the show can still keep the audience on its toes. “I feel like new life has been breathed into the show,” she says of this season. “It doesn’t feel like we’re winding down, it feels like we’re revving up.”
To prepare for tonight’s episode, airing at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, Deschanel chatted with EW about what fans can expect. READ FULL STORY
Happy finale season! We’re in the home stretch but before we all prepare for our post-TV season depression, let’s dig in to some scoop.
Have a question for next week? Send it to email@example.com or find me on Twitter @EWSandraG
‘CASTLE’: SHOULD CASTLE/BECKETT FANS BE WORRIED?
Aside from a few bumps along the way, this season of Castle has been filled with lots of joy for Castle and Beckett — the “honeymoon period,” as executive producer Andrew Marlow calls it. But will the May 13 finale bring an official end to this honeymoon?
“I think the finale’s goal is to ask some hard questions, and take a look at some reconceived notions and some assumptions that both characters may have that may or may not be accurate,” he elaborates.
Judging from the questions you fans sent in, though, I know there’s one question that’s been plaguing your minds: Should you be worried about Castle and Beckett’s relationship status. The answer? Well, it’s complicated: “I think whenever we go into a finale episode, of course, the fans should be worried about things,” Marlowe says. “But what we’re trying to do is find honest organic storytelling that’s more complicated than ‘should we be worried’ because I think ‘should we be worried’ implies a binary outcome — either X happens to Y happens and I think we’re trying to tell a lot more complicated story than that.”
I warned you. It’s complicated. Thankfully clarity is just around the corner, as are more teases from Marlow. Stay tuned.
‘BONES’: HOW BAD IS PELANT? WELL…
Think we’ve seen the worst from brilliant hacker Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds)? Think again.
In Monday’s season finale of Bones, the evil genius now has more tools at his disposal than ever before and will show just how much he can mess with the lives of our gang, “I think it’s emotional for everybody,” previews Emily Deschanel. “The victims — there may be multiple victims — have connections to the FBI and Booth and Booth…knows the victim well. So it’s a big deal.”
After stealing Hodgins’s fortune in a previous episode, we’ll find Pelant operatings from some very fancy new digs in Monday’s season ender and living with “no restrictions.” “He has unlimited capabilities at this point and that’s pretty terrifying when you think about a brilliant, evil person with all those resources,” she says.
But his most evil act of the episode? That one you won’t see coming. “It’s like the last few season finales where you really have to watch until the very last minute,” she teases.
More from Deschanel on Monday.
‘NASHVILLE’: BIG CHANGES COMING
We all saw Lamar flirt with death in the last new episode of Nashville, but even though he made it out alive, there are big changes in store for the family.
“[Tandy] is sort of the son her father never had and has been groomed for the top role at the company and to succeed my father when it was time for him to step down or, god forbid, he should pass away. So it becomes clear the time is getting closer, it’s time to maybe make some moves,” Judith Hoag teases. “Lamar and Tandy have some different visions for how the company should be run, and I think Tandy has hit a point where she’s done being told who to be and what to do.”
That goes over with Lamar about as well as you’d expect. But Hoag says Tandy’s new attitude isn’t the only thing drumming up drama. “She also finds out information that makes her uncomfortable with how business is being handled…and also I question a big Lamar’s state of mind,” she says. “But we can never forget what a worthy opponent he is. He’s worthy and he taught me very well. So it should be interesting.”
“Bones, are you here to buy me an engagement ring?” Booth asks Brennan as they walk into a jewelry store in the exclusive clip below.
Before you get yourself all worked up, her answer is no. And even though we hope that changes one day, it’s not today. Booth and Brennan actually find themselves in a ring shop because of the case they’re investigating in next week’s episode of Bones, titled “The Blood From the Stones.”
According to a description for the hour, which airs March 25 on Fox, the gang finds themselves working a case of a dead undercover police officer, who is found with bag of diamonds inside his mutilated body. That leads B&B to the aforementioned diamond store — and then to a pretty awkward exchange in which Bones’s views on marriage are put on display for the shop keeper. (Note: Booth seems to be enjoying watching her squirm.)
Click below to watch it all go down:
On tonight’s Bones, Brennan will fight for her life after being shot in the lab. But this isn’t your typical brush-with-death.
The episode will also find Brennan coming face to face with her dead mother (Brooke Langton) in an alternate-universe/heaven/…well, we’ll let Emily Deschanel explain.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s talk about this episode. It sounds like a fairly spiritual hour, considering Brennan is not a believer.
EMILY DESCHANEL: Brennan is convinced that she’s hallucinating and hasn’t gone to heaven, but people may end up interpreting it differently — maybe even Brennan interprets it differently by the end. But basically she’s shot and flatlines for a period of time — a few times, really — and kind of goes to her childhood house and finds herself in her childhood home with her mother. It brings up all of the wounds from being abandoned. But Brennan is always rationalizing everything, and [the experience] kind of breaks down some of her barriers. By the end, it kind of gives her a reason to rethink her hyper-rational demeanor and consider listening to her heart from time to time. READ FULL STORY

I sometimes forget to stop and think about the weirdness that is the Spoiler Room photo blend. I mean, how hilarious/weird/awesome would it be if Dwight, Morgan, and Brennan were on the same show? I mean…wow.
Sorry, can you tell I just got off a Red Eye?

‘REVENGE’: WHO’S ON THE BOAT?
As we know, someone is going down with the Amanda. But who? We’ll definitely find out sooner than you might think.
In fact, Gabriel Mann tells me that the big reveal has already been filmed and “it’s a very touching, very action-packed” script. “It is very moving and very poignant, and let’s just say it kind of re-ups Emily’s game in a lot of different ways,” he says.
And while he couldn’t say a single thing about the victim (naturally), Mann did tease that the next few episodes will be the perfect build up. “From a personal point of view, I tend to think that Jack’s fatal flaw is his pride. He’s been keeping the goings on with the Stowaway close to the vest while Emily has been caught up in the Aiden of it all and I’ve been caught up in the NolCorp-takeover-Padma-Marco of it all. I think all of a sudden, our eyes are starting to turn back to the Stowaway and say, ‘What’s been happening here right under our nose?’ he says. “I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to have Emily and Nolan’s sights set on you with laser intensity. Nobody messes with our Jack.”
Now deep into filming the second half of the season, Mann promises that viewers will soon see all the plot points connecting. “I think the ways in which [creator] Mike Kelley has managed to weave all of these things that seem to be coming from a lot of different angles is really one of his fortes,” he says. “I think for viewers of the show — any questions that they may have had or confusion about what came up in the first half of the season will be answered very deliciously in the second half.”
