Leave it to McKayla Maroney to impress the Bones casting directors even when she's under the weather.
"I had strep throat when I went in. I didn't know my lines or anything!" Maroney tells TVGuide.com. "I kind of just winged it. I honestly had no idea how I did. ... So when I got the part, I was so excited."
The Olympic gold medalist and meme queen guest-stars on Friday's episode (8/7c, Fox) as Ellie, a gymnast who becomes Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth's (David Boreanaz) prime suspect after her rival Amanda is murdered. And not just murdered — her remains ...

Are Callie and Arizona really getting back together on Grey's Anatomy? — Darla
NATALIE: There's a chance! "We're left with the concept of trying being the most important goal," Sara Ramirez tells me. But let's not forget that Arizona had a whole relationship with Leah that could jeopardize their future. "Callie has a very human reaction," Ramirez says of discovering the truth. "I don't know if it's necessarily what people will expect or what people will want for Callie." We want Calzona, OK?
Anything else you can tell us about the new serial killer coming up on Bones? — Layla
ADAM: As executive producer Stephen Nathan previously hinted, the new nemesis will be much more...
Bones fans will get a double dose of action this week.
The show will air a new episode on Monday (8/7c, Fox) before shifting into its new timeslot (Fridays at 8/7c) later in the week. And even though lead characters Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) recently got married, executive producer Stephen Nathan insists the show is nowhere near finished.
First Look: Bones' bachelorette bash
"It is a new era, but we never thought [the wedding] was the end," Nathan tells TVGuide.com...
Better late than never. On the November 22 episode of Fox's Bones, Brennan's (Emily Deschanel) matron of honor, Angela (Michaela Conlin), finally throws Brennan the bachelorette party she should have had before her October wedding to Booth.
What can you tell me about the Bones honeymoon episode? — Kristy
ADAM: As we previously teased, the getaway won't be all romance. "They're going to get bored just hanging around having sex and going to the beach," Emily Deschanel jokes about the pair getting swept up into a murder investigation.

"There's a bit of a rivalry with the medical examiner." And why does Booth get sucked in? "Brennan's books are very popular in Buenos Aires, so Agent Andy, who is the character based on Booth in her books is a real hero there," Deschanel teases. Guess he can't let down his fans!
