One of America's golden girls is breaking bad!

Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney is set to guest star on Bones' upcoming episode this Friday and the pint-size gymnast is stirring up some supersize drama on the Fox hit.

Maroney becomes the key suspect in Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan's (Emily Deschanel) latest case, which involved the murder of a nationally ranked gymnast. While the deceased was ranked No. 1 prior to her death, Maroney's character Ellie just so happens to take the top spot once her competition is gone. Suspicious, no?

But we've got an exclusive sneak peek that may just clear Maroney's character and that shows off her very impressive tumbling abilities!

How flippin' awesome is it to see Maroney back on action on the mat?! And we're not the only ones impressed by her skills as Booth can't help but marvel at her talent, noting she was over six feet off the ground. (You just know he's one of those Olympic junkies who makes a permanent dent on his couch every two years during the games!)

But the conversation takes a serious turn when the recently married duo question Ellie about her friend Amanda's death. "I didn't kill her," Ellie says. "She was like a sister to me." And she also happens to have some important information about her friend that could help the Jeffersonian team solve the case.

Of course, Bones isn't Maroney's first foray into acting; the gymnast enjoyed a recurring arc on the CW charmer Hart of Dixie last season after her "not impressed" face at the 2012 London Summer Games took the world by storm.

Bones airs Friday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
