Meet Angela's new...woman! Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin) on Fox's Bones is currently torn between two male lovers—ex-fiancé Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and ex-husband Grayson (Sean Blakemore)—and now a fourth party will be added to the mix!

Fox confirms to us that the adorable Nichole Hiltz, who is best known to most TV viewers as Marshal Mary Shannon's ditzy but well-meaning sister, Brandi Shannon, on USA's In Plain Sight, will appear in Bones' Nov. 12 episode, "The Skull in the Sculpture."

Nichole plays Roxie Lyons, an artist's assistant implicated in her boss' death. Roxie, however, is more than just a suspect—she shares a romantic past with Angela. (She debunks the theory that she killed out of sexual jealousy by pointing out that she is a lesbian and that her boss was a man.)

Now what does this mean for Angela's love life? Well, it certainly isn't going to make Jack any happier with her! I ran into T.J. Thyne (whom I adore) at the Fox party, and when we discussed his character's love life, he said, "Thank you for knowing that she dumped me!" Sounds like Jack isn't going to be forgiving and forgetting any time soon.

In other news, yes, they are now casting for a hottie to play Jared Booth, Seeley's high-ranking Navy officer brother. Jared has a strained relationship with Booth (David Boreanaz), a fond friendship with Cam (Tamara Taylor) and eyes for Brennan (Emily Deschanel). I'm pretty sure that's not going to go over well with Booth, but I get the feeling the situation between Jared and Seeley is more about sibling rivalry than romantic competition.

David himself tells us, "We'll dive into Booth's past a little bit this season. Maybe we'll see his younger brother and his grandfather. And we'll see a little bit more of a vulnerable side to his character."

More deets on that in a future post, along with dish from David, Emily and Michaela themselves about what's to come in season four—but for now, post in the comments about what you think of Nichole's casting and who should play Booth's brother...
