Storyline

After Bones confirms to Booth the hand found in a black bear is from a human male and was hand-sawed off days earlier, they are sent to the Washington state Flathead Indian reservation. The vet Denise Randall brought to Dr. Andrew Rigby most of the arm of the 18 to 25-old victim, on which Zach finds human bite-marks; not being cooked, that must make the cannibal sick. Aurora's sheriff Chris Scutter knows only of a missing hiker Ann Noyes. Ranger Sherman Rivers shows where he found the bear to harvest the excrement, which includes skin tattooed with an Indian Haida sun, which fits missing Richland college boy Adam Langer (22), missing for ten days, who, considering a ranger career, visited Sherman, who flees into the woods, but only as bear poacher. Adam also took climbing lessons with Aurora's hunky private courier Charlie. The corpses of Adam and Ann -missing the heart- are found, shot in the head from up close, buried near a 'medecine wheel' made of stones, fit for a shaman ritual ... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

From 31:06 until 31:13, the Native American Park Ranger is not cuffed, he is merely holding the cuffs in his hands. Later (31:37), he is properly cuffed. Presumably, this is for the actor's comfort. See more »

Bear, Bones and Booth
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B and B travel to the state of Washington to find out why a human hand and some arm fragments have turned up in the stomach of a dead black bear. Along the way, they uncover evidence of human sacrifice and possibly even ritualistic cannibalism in the deep woods. Bones attracts more than her share of attention from several local he-men, and actually accompanies Booth for some dancing and drinking at a local bar -- where she runs into those very he-men. The culprit is too soon figured out, unfortunately, but it is a fun episode in its grisly way. Brennan is still growing, or grating, on Booth in this early episode. And back at the lab, the boys are competing for the attention of the new overnight delivery gal, who is a real knockout. When push comes to shove, not surprisingly they are in for a bit of a surprise.
