Remember all those teases about Hodgins (TJ Thyne) finding out some things about his family? Well, it seems like the time is almost here to see just that, as on Thursday, Jan. 16, FOX released promotional photos for "Bones" episode 915, "The Heiress in the Hill," and the episode description teases just that.

In this upcoming "Bones" episode, the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of Lauren Frank, a kidnap victim whose remains were found buried at a park. She had an unhappy relationship with her mother, leading the team to suspect the killer was someone closer to the victim than expected.

Meanwhile, Hodgins uncovers a shocking secret about his family, and earlier this season, Stephen Nathan had teased, "Hodgins finds out some things about his family, and he had a very close family. I mean, they were very, very wealthy, but he did have a very close family, but he is going to find out some secrets about that family that are going to be quite surprising to him. And it is not going to be grand political secrets or anything like that. It’s going to be very, very personal."

Finally, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) face a common dilemma for couples: whether to co-mingle their funds. Money has been a hot topic before for them; remember when they were trying to find a place to live together?

The slideshow of "The Heiress in the Hill" photos offers a look at Booth and Brennan's investigation and a very personal moment for Hodgins.

"Bones" season 9 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on FOX. "The Heiress in the Hill" airs Jan. 31. What do you think of these episode 15 photos?
