Glow in the dark
1 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A glowing corpse has Homeland Security momentarily worried about a radiation spill. The truth turns out to be far stranger and takes a bit of time to unravel. The dead person was a popular chef/restaurant owner, and a young female at that. Any good mystery fan will figure out the killer at the outset, by the way. I'm kind of sorry they gave it away so quickly. Remember "plastics" from THE GRADUATE? Here, it's the word "ceramic" that finally brings everything together. For series completists, this episode is from the second season, and the relationship between B&B is still evolving. That's always fun to watch, even if the episode doesn't grab you. Sort of like an episode of HOUSE, when the banter among the team is far more interesting than the weekly patient mystery.
