Even though Booth and Brennan have gotten married on "Bones," the excitement of Season 9 is not over yet. Proof of this can be seen in the most recent casting: Richard Schiff ( "The West Wing") and McKayla Maroney (the meme-friendly gymnast) will both guest-star in an upcoming episode.

According to EW.com, both guests will appear in an episode focusing on the murder of a physicist's daughter, Amanda. Schiff will play Dr. Leon Watters, the "Brennan of theoretical physics." After his daughter dies, the man becomes detached -- but Brennan ( Emily Deschanel), seeing herself in the scientific genius, understands that Watters has to focus on work in order to be able to cope with the situation.

Considering Brennan is a parent of a daughter herself, it's possible that this will be a very poignant situation for her.

Maroney, a medal-winning gymnast at the 2012 Olympics, will play Ellie. She is described as both a friend and a rival to Watters' deceased daughter.

While at some point, "Bones" is expected to move to Fridays, for now the show airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on FOX. The next episode -- focusing on Booth and Brennan's honeymoon -- airs Monday, Nov. 4.
