Bones is shot at but manages to duck outside the restaurant where she was waiting for banker David Simmons, whom she only knew yet from a chat site. Booth personally guards her, also a chance to explore her home and private life a bit, while they try to work out which case made her so hated, even scarier as it looks someone slipped into the Jeffersonian to doctor evidence, so the stress peeks, but the team's forensic excellence remains. The most recent cases are the murders of famous mob boss James Cugini, handled by Booth's FBI colleague Special Agent Jamie Kenton, and Penny Hamilton, a student, whose corpse was devoured by dogs as an apparent addition to the sadistic MO of Kevin Hollings, a brilliant, slick but psychotic researcher, who wasn't even charged in a similar case which Booth failed to close years ago. Then Booth is wounded by a bomb in Bones' apartment... Written by KGF Vissers

If you are a fan of the romance of Booth and Bones, this is definitely an episode to watch!

They are actually working on two separate cases: A mob boss's body is found and a young woman's tortued body is found. Booth has a detective friend helping him on this case. Also, Brennan has a blind date and Booth is not happy!

After Brennan is shot, Booth won't let her out of his sight. He also interrogates her blind date in a way that can only be determined as jealousy. Until he knows who's out to kill her, Booth won't let Brennan out of his sight. He announces that he will be spending the night with her (on her couch, of course), and I guess it does end up being a bit of a hero/romantic thing when he is hurt instead of her.

But while in the hospital, Booth puts Brennan into even more danger and has to use Hodgin's help to get to Brennan before she is killed.

We see their first hug, and the closing end shows just how close the two have grown.

Very, very, very well done!
