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.

Bones tells Zack to look at a skull's anomalous indentation 'under the scanning microscope'. The only scanning microscope' out there is a scanning electron microscope, generally used at about 25,000X magnification, which would be absurd to use on an indentation visible to the naked eye. A good jewler's loupe at 30X magnification would serve better. See more »


When first discovered behind the wall, the mouth of the mummy is shown closed, almost clenched; but when laid out for display in the lab, the mouth is very much open and rounded. See more »

The One With The Man In The Wall...
29 April 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I think it's mainly because Bones basically gets high, and that's just hilarious.

In this episode, Angela finally gets Bones to go out with her to a night club, but the night turns sour when the body of a mummified corpse is found in a wall of the night club. A bag of methamphetamines is also discovered, and Bones gets secondhand high. Meanwhile, the team speculates because Booth is dating a lawyer.

Best part of the episode: Bones getting secondhand high.

Worst part of the episode: Nothing in particular.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
