Ever since Bones creator Hart Hanson announced that he would be using the April 21 episode called “The Finder” to introduce a character, Walter Sherman, who could potentially front a new series on Fox come fall, fans have been wanting to know more about him. Fortunately, Geoff Stults, the Happy Town and October Road vet who was cast as the man who can unearth anyone and anything, is finally talking. In the episode, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) travel to Florida to solve the murder of a maritime museum security guard, and once there, Booth suggests they call on Walter to help locate a stolen treasure map.
We’ll learn that years ago, Walter, a former military policeman, tracked Seeley down after he went AWOL when he wasn’t granted leave to see the birth of his son, Parker. “Booth has always been resentful of that because I arrested him, and he’s always wanted to get me back,” Stults says, “but he’s also known that I’m really good at finding things.” Booth tells Brennan that Walter has “finder power,” which Walter proves to Brennan by finding something that’s important to her. “And then, I kind of fall in love with her.

I was like let me shoot the f—in’ thing first. Relax, guys,” Stults laughs. “Don’t kill me. I’m just tryin’ to get a pilot picked up here.”
