An old acquaintance of Booth's, defense attorney Amy Morton, persuades him to ask a favor of Bones. The team examines the forensics of her new client Howard Epps, who is on death row with two days left after a failed final appeal. Anomalies, notably on the victim's remains, reveal alternative suspect David Ross, who admits having had consensual sex with the victim. Booth and Bones persuade FBI Deputy Director Sam Cullen and Judge Cohen to give them time and means to pursue every possibility, but they ultimately unearth another grueling reality...
