Bones Bones

Who knew SPAM could help solve a murder?

In Thursday's winter finale of Bones (8/7c, Fox), Hodgins (TJ Thyne) and squintern Wendell (Michael Grant Terry) attempt to recreate how their victim was murdered (and the particular way the victim's remains were left behind). Their solution: Make a body out of SPAM and blow it up!

"It smells like cat food in here!" Terry says in the behind-the-scenes look at the scene below. "Burnt cat food," Thyne adds.

Watch the clip to find out how many cans of the pressed luncheon meat it took to make the SPAM man, what sort of tricks the crew used to blow him up and how many takes it took for Tamara Taylor, who plays Cam, to keep from laughing.

Bones airs Thursday at 8/7c on Fox.
