Storyline

Glowing bones are found at an old stone house, and Brennan and Booth come to investigate. After being checked for radioactivity (and discovering none), the bones are sent to the Jeffersonian where the team identifies the victim but cannot explain the green glow. The whole team gets involved as each of their specialties is needed, and they're led to a group of friends. The Jeffersonian team uses the friends' MySpace.com pages to find answers and information.

Trivia

TV and movie writers love to have radioactive stuff glow in the dark even though radioactive materials don't do that. The potassium iodide pills, however, are real. One of the main products of uranium and plutonium fission is radioactive iodine ( I-131 ). The thyroid uses a fair amount of iodine and if I-131 is around and the thyroid needs iodine it will take it up; this is very bad. By loading the body with normal iodine you prevent the uptake of I-131. See more »

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.
