Storyline

Ted Macys' corpse was found in Assateague island, a resort town near the National Park where Blackbeard's treasure is supposed to be buried but every pit floods. He was probably drowned and is found clasping a finger bone, 17th century, with tertiary syphilis. Archeologist Macy and his partner Giles Hardewicke lead the dig, funded by adventurer billionaire Branson Rose, personal protégé of mayor Frank Ney. Dr. Jack Hodgins insists on diving for soil samples in the 60 meter deep shaft which already killed a man and finds a probable pirate's corpse. Macy was probably killed after bringing up some treasure; the bones are stolen from the Smithsonian. Booth finds Hardewicke has blues, claiming the mayor kicked him after finding out Macy did his foxy wife. The pirate bones turn out to be stolen from the Jeffersonian and planted. The murderer uses the same spine-breaking Special Forces technique again. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The top worn by Lindsey Stoddart as Katie Ney (the Mayor's wife) is the same top worn by Alyson Hannigan as Vampire Willow in the episodes Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Wish (1998) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Doppelgangland (1999) of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. See more »

Goofs

(at around 3 mins) Hodgins talks about the legend of Blackbeard's "money pit" on Assateague Island. The legend of Blackbeard's "money pit" places it on Oak Island in the Mahone Bay in the Canadian Provence of Nova Scotia, approximately 1200 miles north of Assateague Island. Also while it is possible that Blackbeard could have visited Assateague Island there is no know proof; unlike Ocracoke Island which is approximately 300 miles south of Assateague along the coast and is located at the southern end of the barrier islands know as The Outer Banks of North Carolina.

This is a pretty sloppy episode...
21 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I need to first point out that I am NOT a regular viewer of this series. My wife loves it and I occasionally sit in as she watches. So why am I reviewing this part episode? Well, it was very sloppy in its geography and did an incredibly poor job trying to hide it--so bad that it irritated the life out of me.

The show begins with a fresh body being discovered holding a 300 year-old finger bone. It seems that it MIGHT be the bone belonging to a finger of a man killed to hide Blackbeard's treasure. As an aside, I am a history teacher and know quite a bit about pirates--and it's commonly assumed they buried their treasure--when in reality they usually spent it on whores, booze and a jolly good time. Actual proof that they buried it is difficult to substantiate. This didn't bother me too much. But what DID bother me tremendously was placing the episode on Assateague Island--a place I have visited many times. NONE of the details about the place are right. The National Park is located on the Virginia portion of the barrier island and it is a barren place with wild horses, a huge red lighthouse and absolutely NOT A SINGLE palm tree! There is no tiny square lighthouse or buildings on the place--it is a very naturalistic place with just a few roads, dunes marshland. Why didn't they just make up the name of a place and not even mention its exact location (heck, it looks more like the west coast of California or could be Georgia or Florida)? Sloppy...very, very sloppy...and yet MANY people who live around there or vacationed there will easily see it is NOT Assateague. This is even worse than the episode of "The FBI" where you see a mountain range where it is supposed to be 'just outside of Chicago'!
