Bones fans have had only one thought since Brennan kicked Booth out of the house after his gambling relapse: When will Booth be welcomed back home?

On Thursday's episode (8/7c, Fox), things are looking up as Booth (David Boreanaz) nears his 30-days-sober milestone. But just as the ice begins to thaw, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) learns that Booth didn't invite her to celebrate the occasion with him. Will this latest blow derail the couple's progress?

To add insult to injury, Brennan won't have her best friend to lean on. That's because Angela (Michaela Conlin) drops a bombshell of her own on Brennan. "Ten years ago, Angela just started this job in a temporary capacity and has periodically reevaluated her life," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She's committed to the Jeffersonian, but mainly because of Brennan and Hodgins. Now, she really wants to look at... where she and Hodgins are going next, and this is a real game-changer for everybody."

One upside to the episode? Angela's real name will (finally!) be revealed!
