An adolescent's corpse is found, decomposed but wrapped in a shroud and with a rose, in a Dumpster. It's identified as Dylan Crane, an honor student from a good suburban home who went missing three weeks earlier with his girlfriend, Kelly Morris, who is in foster care. Dylan died from a high fall. His parents assure the gang he wasn't suicidal, but admit they forbade his relationship with Kelly. Conversely, Morris's parents thought Dylan a good influence on her-- encouraging her to return to school--and their younger son, Alex. Food traces on Dylan suggest a Russian restaurant. Social workers Kevin and Fran Duncan show the squat warehouse where they saw the couple; a kid running away in Dylan's sweatshirt calls Kevin Duncan a pervert, he has a record. Brennan, once in foster-care, learns that experience shaped her inability to trust people, and remains defensive of Kelly despite rust and nail polish traces on the pipe Dylan got a blow from. Young Alex took a bus alone to tell only ... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Suzanne Lawler: To feed into their Romeo and Juliet fantasy. Romeo and Juliet are the famous star-crossed lovers of the eponymous Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. Forced by their families to separate, Juliet conceived a plan to escape so that they could be together, but the plan ended in death and tragedy. There are seven additional references to Romeo and Juliet in this episode: Hodgins quotes it, Zack identifies the quote, an inscribed copy of the play is at Dylan's shrine, Booth uses it to indicate Kelly & Dylan, Hodgins reveals the fact that the English Alba is suspected by historians of being the "Rose by any other name," and both Booth and Brennan use it when speaking of the rose.

Keep better and better
20 September 2006 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The song played at the end of the episode was "Bring on the Wonder" by Susan Enan. I think Bones Season 2 is getting better and better because there's a lot of creative things happened in every episode plus the song in every episode are totally pleasurable. The thing is if you like this kind of series better watch it ASAP. Different than CSI, more intriguing than CSI:Miami and more great ideas in every episode. Wish they will produced an album of the soundtrack from season 1 till now because i kinda like it very much. Good choice of songs and great cast. Good job for the crew. Keep it up! One more thing about this show is you won't miss a single moment of it because it is important.
