by Rich Keller, posted May 20th 2011 1:00AM
Bones and Booth go undercover at a bowling tournament in the season finale of 'Bones.'['Bones' - 'The Change in the Game']

After the tragedy of last week's 'Bones,' we were presented with a light and fluffy episode to round out the sixth season. Well, as light and fluffy as someone being crushed by a bowling pin resetting machine can be. Of course, being 'Bones,' the whole thing was treated with humor.

We also closed the season-long story line of Angela and Hodgins' new baby, welcomed Squintern Wendell back for another run, and said hello to a wheelchair-bound Max Keenan, who knew the murder victim. Oh, there was also this tiny, unimportant little thing at the very end of the episode that probably made long-time viewers of the show jump and scream for joy.

Big Spoiler Warning: Do not read ahead if you haven't watched this week's episode. You'll be angry if you do.

Chuck and Sarah go through a dry-run of the wedding on the season finale of 'Chuck.'['Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Cliffhanger']

Okay, for those of you who watched the season finale of 'Chuck,' let's take some deep breaths before we plunge into the recap. For those who didn't watch, you need to stop reading right now, go to your DVRs and tune in.

In the meantime, let's congratulate Chuck, Sarah and the rest of Team Bartowski for pulling off yet another renewal. Granted, it's only 13 episodes, the show will be moved to Fridays, and it will most likely be its last season; however, it's good to see that it will return to the NBC lineup. All that in spite of the fact that the network itself has not given the show a shred of the promotion it's due.

The renewal is especially important because of went on in the finale, which changes the entire playing field. If you've caught your breath or watched the show, then read on.

Booth has Bones stay at his apartment to protect her from sniper Jacob Broadsky on 'Bones.'['Bones' - 'The Hole in the Heart']

Off-screen, the news has been nothing but good for the 'Bones' family. The series has been renewed for a 7th season while 'The Finder,' the backdoor pilot which aired a few weeks ago, was picked up.

If that wasn't good enough, 'The New Girl,' a comedy starring Zooey Deschanel, Emily Deschanel's sister, was also ordered by FOX for the 2011-12 season.

On-screen, the news wasn't as good. In fact, it was quite tragic. Sniper Jacob Broadsky was back and this time he was literally gunning for Booth. Lining himself up in a construction crane which pointed towards the Jeffersonian, Broadsky thought he had Booth in his sights. Unfortunately, the thermal imaging he used did not show faces. Instead of killing Booth, he killed someone else.

'Chuck' Season 4, Episode 20 Recap

Vivian Volkoff is now the cold-hearted villain in the newest inatllment of 'Chuck.'['Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Family Volkoff']

When you take away all the spy work, the Intersect, and Yvonne Strahovski walking around half-naked once an episode, 'Chuck' is a show about family. The lead character has a number of families: his own, the CIA, the dysfunctional one at the Buy More and soon-to-be-one with Sarah. In another example, Morgan has his own family, is indirectly connected to Chuck's, is part of the CIA and Buy More family structures, and will probably end up part of Casey's family one day.

The examples of family connections are nearly endless. Still, there's room for one more family: The Volkoffs. What differentiates this family from all the others?

While all the other family connections are inherently good, the Volkoff family is very, very bad. Well, one of them is now very, very, bad; the other seems to be having a change of heart.

Bad idea! Bones, Booth and Sweets try to shove a set of stadium seats into an elevator on this week's episode of 'Bones.'['Bones' - 'The Blackout in the Blizzard']

There are a few common pieces of advice parents will impart on their children throughout a lifetime. For instance, never go outside without a clean pair of underwear. Or never put your tongue on a cold piece of metal. Or the classic 'If you keep making that face it will stick.'

But the biggest piece of advice given by parents is to never shove a row of old stadium seats into a steel-grate elevator during a blizzard when there's a potential outbreak of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever. Unfortunately, that's exactly what Special Agent Seeley Booth did on this week's 'Bones.' This led to a whole mess of trouble in a fun episode that really focused on the Squint dream team of Angela, Hodgins and Wendell and, perhaps, changed the relationship between Booth and Bones for the better.

Three sisters married to the same man are suspects in his murder on this week's installment of 'Bones.'['Bones' - 'The Sin in the Sisterhood']

After the tense events of last week's 'Bones,' Booth and the Squints got back to some good ol' investigatin' as they tried to find out who murdered a polygamist who ended up marrying three sisters. In other words, it was business as usual for the gang.

But before we get to that we need to speak for a moment about a romantic relationship that doesn't involve Booth, Bones, Hannah, Hodgins, Angela, Daisy or Sweets.

By process of elimination, that only leaves Cam as the subject of discussion. And, yes, she does have a romantic life!
