An ex-FBI agent is crucified and torched on top of a hotel with a message inside his throat which re-opens a case from the 70s that sent an innocent man to prison. The case has ties that go deep inside the FBI, endangering Bones and her brother Russ, and risking Booth's career. Bones receives a visit from an old friend of their father Max Keenan, who is holding back a secret. Elsewhere Zack defends his dissertation to earn his doctorate, and worries he may not be hired at the institute as he is "cute, but a jury won't take you seriously". Written by
