Storyline

Just when Angela has finally managed to make Bones take a night off to visit Randall Hall's hip-hop club, her pedantic comments cause customers to pick a fight, in which she knocks over a wall behind which a mummified body is found next to a bag of speed- it's DC's missing rap disk jockey Roy Taylor, alias DJ Mount, who inhaled cocaine while trapped for weeks, which now renders both forensic experts accidentally high. Booth finds Mount's deadly music rival is Rulz DJ, working at that very club; father Taylor assures him his boy was a model student and clean. Autopsy shows Mount's fatal overdose was enforced upon him, also behind the wall is the belly-button marked 'luv Rulz', which the DL says is his ex Eve Warren's, who left him for Mount but left her daughter Maya with her brother George Warren weeks ago. Booth learns from an undercover FBI colleague that Halls is the second identity of a former (?) drug dealer and finds the sales-inducing prospect of some jail time is enough for ...

Trivia

The cane used by Randall Hall in this episode is a replica of the cane used by Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid) in the original series Dark Shadows. See more »

Goofs

When interrogating Rulz, Bones states that he shattered his lower radius and pisiform bones when he was shot. However, the pisiform is on the pinky side of the wrist, not the thumb side. The bones that would have been damaged would either be the scaphoid or the trapezium. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance Brennan: Arrest him and confiscate the cane as evidence. I need the cane.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Arrest him for what? He's the guy who pointed a gun at a federal agent.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Uttering threats or smelling bad or anything.

Bones:The Man in the Wall
22 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brennan and Angela discover the mummified corpse of a dead Deejay, asphyxiated with Meth and hit across the skull with some sort of blunt object. This leads Booth and Brennan their investigation into the hip hop world as its possible that the one responsible could've been a record producer(who owns the club where the body was found), a rival with a newly built studio(where a body is found buried under a cement floor), and a girlfriend who is missing. Bokeem Woodbine and Morris Chestnut both have supporting parts as club owner and security respectively(Chestnut is actually an undercover agent and has a nice exchange with Booth over how to keep his role intact without giving away his disguise). Booth's relationship with Tessa takes a turn for the worse when a plan to go on vacation to Costa Rica is disrupted when she gets cold feet at the possibility of "moving to the next level", her commitment not a strong as Seeley's. This episode includes a touching scene where the murdered deejay's father visits Booth in his office over the importance of cleansing the victim's soiled name in the press and Brennan establishes that she enjoys hip hop music. Her scene at the beginning describing African American music in tribal terms and the high to a shower of Meth which goes up when the burial wall is kicked in are amusing moments which break the ice because this is ultimately a tragic story of denied love and a potential successful future squandered.
