So much for "friendly" competition.
On Thursday's Bones (8/7, Fox), Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is asked to give the keynote speech at a forensic science convention, so she brings Cam (Tamara Taylor), Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Hodgins (TJ Thyne) along with her.

This summer, Bones creator Hart Hanson did something he hates doing: He gave viewers a huge spoiler.
At Comic-Con in July, Hanson told thousands of gathered fans that -- despite the Season 8 cliff-hanger that saw Booth (David Boreanaz) turn down a long-awaited proposal from Brennan (Emily Deschanel) because of a threat from serial killer Christopher Pelant (Andrew Leeds) — Booth and Brennan will be getting married this season.

"We had to figure out: 'How do we continue telling the story of these two people in an honest way?'" executive producer Stephan Nathan says...
Mortality is definitely on Dr. Brennan's mind on the Season 8 finale of Bones.
After watching Cam (Tamara Taylor) almost lose her boyfriend on the Fox drama's penultimate episode, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is more focused than ever on making sure Booth (David Boreanaz) comes home alive at the end of the day. "The outbreak put a seed in Brennan's mind about how delicate our lives are," Deschanel tells TVGuide.com. "She can't help but internalize ... how devastating it would be to lose Booth.
