The two B's are called to the Florida Everglades to investigate a human arm found in an alligator. Before they arrive, Booth is so irritated by an ice-cream cart's nagging 'music' that he shoots the clown-shaped loudspeaker; the FBI sends him to frightfully erudite and suave British psychotherapist Dr. Gordon Wyatt's home, where the perfectionist control freak's professional and private frustrations, including Epps's fatal balcony fall, are handled in a frustrating and yet calming way, while building a garden barbecue... Meanwhile Bones continues with Special Agent Tim 'Sully' Sullivan, whose apparent lack of interest and dedication makes her appreciate their friend and colleague Booth more, decides to ship the whole alligator to the Jeffersonian for examination and learns about Sully's varied qualifications and other options in life besides an FBI career, unlike totally focused Booth. Medical records of the missing Everglades kids who recklessly come close to alligators identify the ... Written by KGF Vissers

The FBI agent working on the case while Booth is dealing with shooting the ice cream truck clown explains when they serve the search warrant, "You can only admit evidence in plain view." In fact, a search warrant gives authorities the right to search wherever the evidence they are seeking reasonably would be found within the location being searched. A "plain view" restriction would be highly unusual. See more »


Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Uh... do you mind if I ask what exactly it was that you did?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah. I shot a truck.
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Ah! Full of terrorists, no doubt, or plutonium or fleeing felons, was it?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No. It was an ice cream truck.
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Do you have a good reason for firing on it?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah. The music, it was bothering me.
Dr. Gordon Wyatt: Ah.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah. There was a speaker in the clown's mouth. Yeah. I just pulled out my gun, you know, and

Enter Dr. Wyatt
16 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first of several episodes where we see Dr. Wyatt using his psychology skills on Booth. Brennan is later involved in the sessions as what they do and how they act are related to each other. Dr. Wyatt is probably one of the first to actually hint that the relationship between Booth and Bones is one of a couple in love.

In this episode, Booth is still pretty frustrated with allowing Epps to die so he takes his frustration out on an ice cream truck. The scene is rather funny, but a bit shocking at the same time. I'm thinking a person would be fired for doing such a thing in the real world.

Brennan's not able to work with Booth in this episode is shown as frustration on her own part, but she adjusts to the situation and gives us a good case to figure out.
