An FBI investigation is launched at the beginning of Bones‘ 11th season to find Booth after he mysteriously goes missing, but the FBI team may cause more trouble than expected.

Kim Raver joins as a guest star for the Bones season premiere as agent Grace Miller, and tensions between her and Brennan began to flare up almost immediately. In a preview revealed exclusively by EW, Raver and Emily Deschanel discuss what Miller’s appearance does to the dynamic of the show and how it keeps the momentum going into the show’s 11th year. Though Miller is brought in to locate Booth after he and Brennan become involved in a new case, she and her fellow agents begin to investigate Brennan’s own team in the process. 

Raver’s appearance also adds the presence of one more 24 alum to the series, as both T.J. Thyne and John Boyd starred on the Kiefer Sutherland drama.

Watch the preview above to hear more from Raver about her character and from Deschanel about the “adversarial dynamic” between the two during Raver’s guest stint. 

Bones premieres Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
