Storyline

A man's body in a tub full of lye is hard to identify, except for its brittle bone disease and paternity. However it fits two sets of father and sibling cases: electrician Larry Turner has a daughter with teacher Lila Turner and Lawrence Seaver has a son, Ray, with Gayle Seaver. Apparently both mothers ignored his double life and bigamy. Meanwhile the team wonders about Booth's feelings for his own son Parker's mother, Rebecca Stinson, who rejected his marriage proposal. Chop sticks worn in a woman's hair point to a Chinese restaurant, where the wives met and discovered that "Larry/Lawrence" made a third woman, Chloe Daniels, pregnant, yet the trio claims Larry killed himself. Forensics shows he was shot in the head after dying on the construction site of bitterly dissatisfied customer Pete Valera, thus suspect #4. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

At the beginning of the program, while at the crime scene, Pete the construction guy is asking if the tub, a "Godiva 3000", could be reused since it is so expensive. The tub shown is a claw foot, which is in fact a more expensive type of tub than a standard type of tub. Pete goes on to say the building is subsidized housing and the government needs all money accounted for. Since subsidized housing is contracted on a low bid process, subsidized housing would never use expensive items like a claw foot tub. See more »

Worst episode ever...Booth was completely out of character
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I have seen every single episode that has aired so far, and we have had a very hard time picking which ones are our favorite episodes and which are our least favorite episodes...This one makes the latter very easy to decide. This was, by far, the worst episode aired thus far.

Booth sleeps with both Rebecca and Cam...the former is understandable, I guess (though, even then, we are never given the impression that either of them even likes the other at all anymore...further, she was in a very serious relationship with another man last we saw, yet she is now sleeping with Booth?), but with Cam it is completely inexcusable and nonsensical. He was just about to go yell at her about telling everyone he was back with his ex, and next thing we see is them sleeping together?! Absolutely absurd. We aren't given any idea of Booth being interested in Cam, yet here he is, just after realizing the mistake he made by sleeping with Rebecca, making the same mistake all over again with another woman.

The other comments I have seen around here are totally right. He is a total man whore in this episode. Sure, he has his faults, but being a slutty man whore was not one of them. After all, he's a "good Catholic" guy.

Completely out of character...this was totally a publicity stunt to get all the David Boreanaz sex-crazed female fans an excuse to stare at his chest. If they want to show him scarcely dressed, fine...have a scene where he's coming out of the shower and Brennan walks in on him after he's got a towel around him. But to make him completely out of character is just asking for trouble (such as disgusting the Bones' addicts like my wife and me). Bones' is still our favorite show, by far, but we are very displeased with this episode.
