Storyline

In a Salvadorian barrio, a routine car check finds a recently dug-up, decomposed pregnant Central American body in a Mara Muerte gang member's car-boot, with a crushed skull; nobody is talking to the police, a car shoots at Booth and Bones so the gang driver can make a run for it. Booth questions gang leader Miguel Villeda. Plant traces make them search the barrio's communal vegetable garden, where it was indeed buried, with another body. A rare flowering pond plant trace points to Senator Alan Corman, a known supporter of oppressive Central American right-wing regimes which use death-squads. His son Logan, a landscaping architecture student, recognizes the gang driver's robot photo as Jose Vargas, a nice family-man and irregular gardener. The second body is found buried near the senator's pond; it's a year old, a Hispanic sixty-ish male shot with a military-type weapon, like death squads prefer, but he survived that wound and is the Salvadoran woman's father as indicated by the same ...

Don't mess with her!
10 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B & B were so good in this episode on so many levels. Brennan is not scared of much. So when a gang member starts getting rough with her, she lands him flat on his back. The whole scene is really quite comical. I assume Booth called Angela and asked her to chew Brennan out for what she did (because he was too proud of her to do it himself, perhaps). Then Brennan told one of her sad stories from her past.

But my favorite part is what Booth does at the end of this episode. I won't give it away, but it's one of his first acts of love for Brennan and I cherish this scene - it does make it in some of the B & B Youtube videos...

The story itself is a bit better than most. Brennan continues to show us that her heart isn't really as hard as she wants everyone to think.
