“Bones” is closing out the first half of its season with an explosive Wild West adventure that finds Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) going deep undercover as an Old West shooting competition to solve a murder.

However, even inserting themselves into a world of cowboys, trick shots and silly names like Big River Buck and Wildcard Wanda — Booth and Brennan, respectively — there’s still real life to attend to. For Brennan and Booth, that means figuring out their schedule for the week, who’s taking time off to be with their kids and stopping Booth from making bad decisions.

In the Zap2it exclusive clip from the mid-season finale above, it seems he’s been looking into buying a vintage motorcycle, which Brennan most definitely isn’t on board with. “I accept the inherent risks of our jobs, why take on additional ones?” she asks. Of course, the most Booth can muster is that he’ll strap on a helmet.

Good luck winning that argument, pal.

The “Bones” fall finale will air Thursday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
