In the season finale, the victim is a conspiracy blogger who had arranged to meet up with Booth, and realizing that whoever killed Wesley Foster didn't want him to talk to Booth, the team has to figure out who's behind his death and why what he wanted to talk to him about is relevant. As Booth and the Jeffersonian team dig deeper into the burgeoning conspiracy surrounding Foster's death, it's evident Booth could be in over his head, and his future with the FBI is put in question.

In a recent conference call, Emily Deschanel revealed that Foster wants to talk to Booth about the McNamaras, and when he ends up burned to death in his trailer, they think there could be people involved at the FBI. "There's a big cliffhanger," she teased. "There's a lot going on for Booth and Brennan." A "huge thing" at the end of the episode will change everything, including Booth's job and possibly Brennan's job as well. "It will change the dynamic and everything about them and their work and relationship," she previewed.

"It puts them in a different place," according to David Boreanaz. "There's a lot of destructive forces that come upon us and we find out that there's more to it than what meets the eye and they've been working underground for a while. …It all kind of comes to a head, and it's pretty detrimental at the end. Things will change for the good, and there will be also things that they will have to adjust to."

This "The Recluse in the Recliner" promo doesn't actually reveal much of what's coming up, but what it does show will have you talking. Booth is brought into the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, and Brennan can only watch as doctors work on him – and it doesn't look good. As the promo teases, it's "the season finale that will change everything."

Plus, don't forget to check out the promotional photos in the slideshow to see what else is coming up in the season 9 finale. They offer a look at the team examining the remains, Booth at the Senate hearing, Booth preparing for a confrontation and more.

"Bones" season 9 ends Monday at 8 p.m. on FOX. What do you think of the season 9 finale "The Recluse in the Recliner" photos and promo?
