Storyline

Looking for missing six year-old Charles Gregory Sanders, Zach's equipment finds in a suburban youth party field the badly degraded corpse of the barely four days dead boy. Autopsy, hard to do objectively on such a young kid, shows Charlie was drugged. Golden spoon-mother Margaret Sanders divorced Charlie's dad before his birth and has two teenage foster sons, brothers David and Shawn Cook. Booth quickly gains their confidence and guesses right David dated his girl-friend Leila at the mall and left younger Shawn with a friend in the park. Mall security recordings show unattended Charlie went to someone calling him. A hereditary bone defect proves Margeret isn't Charlie's biological mother, she illegally kept baby Nathan Downey from OD's junkie Janine, Booth arrests her for kidnapping. Video enhancement shows Charlie was killed by Shawn, who was abused by his dad. Bones shows atypical empathy for foster kids, due to her personal experience, which proves crucially useful after the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Zack tells Brennan that the remains of the young boy were the smallest he'd ever worked on, she tells him that she identifies bodies after the Waco Massacre, which happened in 1993. In 1.22 (The Woman in Limbo), Brennan mentions that she was born in 1976, which would have made her 17 in 1993. She couldn't have been identifying victims as a senior in high school. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: [to Angela who just said something scientific] I mean you look normal. You act normal. But you're actually one of them.
Angela Montenegro: This whole mass-recognition program was Brennan's idea. I'm completely normal, really.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah. Maybe before you got this job. But now...

Daed boy
24 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the death of a young boy who disappeared from a mall and whose body turns up in a nearby field. It takes a bit, but the team realizes he was crushed to death in some manner they have trouble understanding. Then it's a case of figuring out who grabbed the kid from the mall. The killer is given away early, unfortunately. The twist to the episode is that the boy came from a family with a single mom and two other boys -- all of them foster kids. And this has a serious bearing on the case, as Dr. Brennan intuits. She reveals quite a surprise to Booth near the end. A very depressing episode. A nice touch at the end had the boss telling one of the team, who is thinking of quitting, how valuable her job is to the team.
