The beginning of another story
18 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's been three months since Angela and Jack left Booth and Brennan at the alter. Their relationship is not where Booth wants it to be. Zack has left for Iraq and Brennan does not want to work the field. Needless to say, this upsets Booth very much.

This episodes begins a story that will last the whole season. A skull lands on the windshield of some teens and it's discovered that the person was eaten by human teeth. They spend the entire episode trying to come up with answers, only to find more questions.

Zack returns half-way through the episode, much to Booth's happiness. It's then that Booth discovers the real reason Brennan has been at odds with him.

There are a couple pretty intimate scenes between our favorite Bones couple. I'm thinking Booth would gladly take this relationship to the next level if Brennan wasn't so against it.

Jack and Angie work at finding Angie's husband.
