“Bones” Season 11, Episode 17 airs May 26 on Fox, starring David Boreanaz as FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth and Emily Deschanel as forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan. In this week’s new episode, Booth is hurt by doubts, while Brennan is down with the flu. Meanwhile, Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne) makes another move to improve his condition.

Spoiler alert: This update contains “Bones” Season 11 spoilers. Details include details from Bones 11x17 synopsis from Fox.

In “Bones” Season 11, Episode 17 promo video below, James Aubrey (John Boyd) introduces Booth to Secret Service Agent Brandt Walker (guest star Michael Gaston), the only active agent to ever take a bullet for the President of the United States (POTUS). Walker says something that gravely disappoints Booth, but the Fox synopsis says Booth is stepping up for the president, anyway.

In a separate Bones 11x17 promo video, Brennan is seen fixing herself a cup of herbal tea to manage her flue. Booth laughs off Brennan’s criticism of his poor diet, seeing that he is “fit as a fiddle” while Brennan is the one who’s sick.

The other guest stars appearing in “Bones” Season 11, Episode 17 are: Joel David Moore as squintern Dr Colin Fisher, Jeff Rosick as Darrell Taggert, Nishi Munshi as Marissa Patel, Michael Galante as Travis Bozwell, Sahil Shroff as Reiki Healer, Dave Power as Neil Stockton and April Adams as Sally Cavanaugh.

The synopsis also states: “Hodgins takes his life into his own hands and turns a corner after a potentially dangerous experiment.” In Bones 11x16, Angela (Michaela Conlin) convinces Hodgins to skip a risky experiment. Their struggle over his drastically changed condition continues in the next episode.

There are five more episodes in “Bones” Season 11 after the airing of Bones 11x17 a.k.a. “The Secret in the Service.” The season finale, titled “The Nightmare Within the Nightmare” (directed by David Boreanaz) is expected to air in July.
