'The Hot Dog in the Competition'
The remains of a competitive eating champion are discovered days before the next major competition where $10,000 is the prize, leaving the victim's competitors as suspects. Finn Abernathy joins the Jeffersonian as a new intern finding a key piece of evidence for the case, but his troubled past is a cause for concern for Cam on deciding if he should keep his job or not. Meanwhile, Booth is upset when he learns that Brennan learned the sex of the baby without him.

'The Passenger in the Oven'
While Booth and Brennan are en route to Shanghai, a body is found in the airplane’s oven; they try to solve the case before the plane lands in China (and it’s no longer theirs to investigate); and Sweets helps Hodgins deal with Angela’s new relationship.
About the Show
From executive producers Hart Hanson, Barry Josephson and Stephen Nathan comes the fifth exciting season of Bones, a darkly amusing procedural with humor, heart and character, inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.
Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless—when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up—law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones.
Most law enforcement can’t handle Brennan’s intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI’s Homicide Investigations Unit is the exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists—the “squints,” as he calls them—who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan’s scientific acumen makes them a formidable team.Full Episode List
