Quotes

Dr. Camille Saroyan: [Talking about Booth being annoyed that Bones being difficult and distant] Usually when you get all blustery, its 'cause you think something's your fault.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Yeah, well. You know... I did arrest her father for murder. She could be having trouble with that.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: Yeah. Exposing a parent to the death penalty can have a chilling effect on a partnership.

Eaten
1 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So here wee go with the story arc involving cannibalistic killers. A skull is dropped off a highway overpass, hits a windshield, and leads the team to a secret vault that suggests people are being killed and eaten or vice versa, and possibly by more than one individual. This is the start of the adventures of killer who evidently belongs to a shadowy society for such killers, and frankly nothing could bore me more. I hope it will not have the same effect on you. The greatly missed Zach is back, by the way. We do get our first look at the cool-looking metal skeleton that will figure more prominently as this particular story arc unfolds.
