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

Brennan's old college professor/lover shows up in town and they began a professional - and personal - relationship. Things are going well until Booth tells her why he's really there.

This is an interesting episode that shows how well Booth and Brennan work together and how well Booth already knows her. Brennan doesn't have many social or interpersonal skills, as is made very clear in this episode. Booth both verifies this with her and sticks up for her when others give her a hard time. Booth also know exactly how to get her to say what the jury needs to hear. Brennan, is of course, livid with her.

I love the closing scene. Booth knows how to get back on her good side and does it quite well. When they are finally alone and she's in her element, they make up. It's a wonderful scene!
