Storyline

A decayed corpse found inside a fridge on a dump-site fits the description of missing girl Maggie Schilling, whose rich parents feel guilty for failing to give her personal attention before her kidnapping. Booth shifts the new fridge in her friends Scott and Mary Costello's apartment and thus finds they're an SM couple which explains the traces of handcuff-caused wrist fractures. Bones is delighted by a visit from her former lover and forensics professor Michael Stires, who is considering a job at Washington University. They enjoy jousting about the evidence and sharing her bed 'without strings', until Booth warns her Stires is also the expert employed by the Costellos' defense. At the trial, Bones is her usual arrogant, unintelligibly jargon-clouded self, which antagonizes every jury member despite rude but correct warnings from the US District Attorney's jury consultant. After a convincing but rather misleading performance from Dr. Stires, Booth gives the District Attorney the key ... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: You know, the regular stuff. When it gets old, you need to spice it up, it's over. When the sex is good, you don't need any help.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Oh, that's for sure!
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm sorry?
Dr. Temperance Brennan: I was agreeing.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah? Well, don't. Okay? It kinda freaks me out.

Misreading
29 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Booth delivers an old fridge to the team, and inside is the body of a young woman. At the same time, an old professor of Brennan's shows up in D.C., and he and she quickly rekindle an old sexual relationship. Whqt Brennan doesn't know is that the prof is in D.C. to testify for the defense in the case involving the body in the fridge. He has been instructed to rip her findings to shreds. A tricky episode for Brennan, less so for Angela, who warns Brennan about men in general. Not the most memorable episode, but a good study of Brennan, who is forced to take a step forward in her slow evolution to a full human being. A suggestion of kinkiness involving the dead woman livens things up a bit.
