In this episode, the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Brian Thomas, a head swim coach at a community college, whose remains are found dumped at the bottom of a well. Possible suspects reveal to Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Sweets (John Francis Daley), who will be filling in for Booth (David Boreanaz) in the investigation, that Brian might have been having an affair, and when the team digs into his life, they find details of a secret life.

Meanwhile, Sweets is filling in for Booth because Booth is preparing to testify before a Congressional sub-committee. Finally, the Jeffersonian team's new intern, Jessica Watten (Laura Spencer) catches Sweets' attention. Sweets seems to have a type, doesn't he?

The promo for "The Drama in the Queen" shows Brennan discovering an injury usually found in women who wear high heels. It turns out their victim, Brian, wasn't having an affair; he was a drag queen. Booth will be joining Brennan on this case at some point, and their investigation takes them into Brian's world of drag, which should make for some amusing exchanges like the one to end this preview.

Don't forget to check out the slideshow to see the promotional photos Fox has released from this episode. The images show Brennan and Sweets talking to people at the pool where the victim coached, Hodgins (TJ Thyne) in the pool, Booth and Brennan investigating Brian's "secret" life and the new intern with Brennan in the lab.

"Bones" season 9 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox. "The Drama in the Queen" airs May 12. What do you think of the episode 22 photos and promo?
