Storyline

Zack Addy expresses regret that it's the third case in a row he and Bones must handle without Special Agent Seeley Booth when they are called to the site of a crashed private jet which carried State Department staff and two Chinese cultural attachés (often a spy cover.) The FAA and NTSB classify the crash on a golf-course as an accident, but there is one charcoaled body more than on the passenger list, plus bone fragments of yet another person at the crash site, with cut marks consistent with amputation. Jeffersonian director Dr. Daniel Goodman accepts orders to concentrate only on identifying the sixth passenger; Bones insists to Booth the seventh man is the only possible murder victim. To the amazement of both, Jesse Kane, a reputed expert on missing persons and aspects of police work, approaches them, claiming the bone fragments are probably from his father, rich stockbroker Max Kane, whose disappearance five years earlier on the way to his cottage started Jesse's quest for such ...

Trivia

Dyson of the NTSB is describing the jet crash, saying the jet reported problems while "200 miles southeast of Norfolk. Yeager Airport of Charleston tracked them for 30 minutes". Norfolk is in Virginia; Charleston is in WEST Virginia, a different state. Yeager Airport would not be tracking a plane 500 miles away. See more »

Goofs

When Brennan and Booth are arguing in the lab at the beginning of the episode, a blurred patch under her eyes (possibly placed there to cover dark circles under her eyes) is in the wrong place and briefly blurs her lower eyelids. See more »

The true crime
11 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A plan crash isn't the center of Brennan's investigation. She finds three bone fragments that don't belong with the crash and longs to learn who they belong to. A man believes they are from his missing father. So after Brennan overrides her boss's orders and directs her three helpers to focus on the other case, they sneak around to find the truth.

Brennan and Booth have rather interesting talks. Though Booth accuses Brennan of missing him, it's obvious the feeling is quite mutual. Booth constantly pulls her into the field with him to help him solve the case.

The young man looking for his father plays on Brennan's sympathies by bringing up the fact that her parents are also missing. This infuriates Booth. You can just see his protective instincts clashing with his trying to stay objective.

B & B share a rather intimate look at the end that's interrupted by Zack, who is happy his and Booth's "friendship" is back on track.
