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

Booth says that the victim has a "living will" leaving all of his assets to one of his two wives. A living will does not serve to distribute assets after death; rather, it is a directive to medical personnel regarding treatment in the event of the patient's incapacity. See more »

Quotes

Zack Addy: [holding a pitchfork to sift remains out of a tub of lye] And, I know you requested a strainer of some sort, Dr. Brennan, but I thought this would be of some use.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: For the big pieces maybe.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: After that, Old McZacky, get on the horn with the coroner's office and tell them I want two field unit water sifters sent here ASAP.
Zack Addy: They get mad went I drop your name.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Then drop it twice.

13 February 2007 | by (TN) – See all my reviews

When I read the first review posted here before I saw the episode I was a little wary of actually watching it. I finally broke down this morning and turned it on.

I agree that Booth was a little out of character here, and the final scene was . . . a little off. But I see a deeper message in the episode as well. First, we see Bones take a real leap in understanding of her Partner, showing a different side that we don't see very often when she talks to Rebecca. Near the end of the episode Booth and Bones are talking and Booth is telling her why he can't sleep with Rebecca anymore, he looks up at her and says something to the tune of, there are some people you cant just sleep with, because there is too much to lose. Basically that it matters too much and you can damage what you already have that is good.

The next scene shows Booth in bed with Cam. At first thought it *does* seem to go against the grain of the story, but when I stopped to think about it I realized that its sort of a tell tale that Cam and Booths relationship will never be 'meaningful' and gives a glimpse as to why Booth and Bones don't give into their . . . tension, because their relationship means too much to risk for 'biological' reasons.

:) All in all I wasn't nearly as disappointed with the episode as I thought I would be, not my favorite, but still very much worth watching.
