In this next "Bones" episode, when a repo man's remains are found in a septic tank, it's up to the Jeffersonian team to find his killer, but when they find out he had a troubled past, key witnesses from his earlier days become possible suspects.

Meanwhile, the handsome and charming Rodolfo Fuentes has defected from Cuba, where he was a forensic anthropologist, but he needs an internship to complete his degree. Brennan agrees to give him a try as an intern on the case.

Executive producer Stephen Nathan has previewed, "[Rodolfo is] a Cuban defector who was the chief forensic anthropologist in Havana, but his credentials don’t work here. As often happens with people who come from another country, they have to get accreditation again. So the Secretary of State has asked the Jeffersonian to give him the position because he needs an internship before he gets his accreditation. So he essentially is an equal with Brennan, but Brennan is his boss and he is in fact an intern. Ignacio’s fantastic. He’s just terrific. We can’t wait to have him back. He will return."

Finally, Booth and Brennan discuss whether or not Christine should have a religious upbringing.

The promo for "The Repo Man in the Septic Tank" is all about the new intern at the Jeffersonian. He seems to be charming Angela and Cam, but what about Brennan? "I think soon we'll make love," he tells her, and in turn, she fills Booth in on her new intern. "I imagine all of my male interns want to have sex with me," she says. "You do realize that you're talking out loud?" He asks her. Oh, Brennan. There should be an interesting dynamic in the lab next week.

Plus, don't forget to check out the promotional photos FOX has released from this episode in the slideshow.

"Bones" season 9 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on FOX. What do you think of the episode 17 "The Repo Man in the Septic Tank" promo and photos?
