Storyline

Construction workers find a rat-eaten, naked, stabbed body. The knee-caps were surgically removed, and sent by mail to Bones, loaded with Gormogon (extinct secret cannibalistic society) clues. It's Douglas Cooper, vicar-general of Washington D.C.'s archbishop Stephen Wallace, on sabbatical to write an esoteric book on pagan rites and early Christianity. The anti-masonic Gormogon symbolism spells an incredibly complex clues cascade Zach relishes in, and reveals the work of a second, much older killer, who apprenticed the dead one. Booth brings in Sweets, who proves smart and helpful in the ensuing, dangerous battle of wits. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Booth claims to know Latin because he was an altar boy. However, since the Catholic church largely discontinued Latin masses in 1965, he would have had to have been trained prior to that year, which would put his age in the mid-50s. Furthermore, most altar boys did not learn the Latin language but memorized the prayers by rote without knowledge of grammar or vocabulary. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Jack Hodgins: Look. "Pater mortuus."
Special Agent Seeley Booth: It means "dead father."
Dr. Jack Hodgins: *You* know Latin? Dude!
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Altar boy.

Bore-Me-Gone
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit I am not crazy about these Gormogon episodes, just as I was never fond of the conspiracy episodes of THE X FILES. Gormogon bores me. The gang is closing in on this flesh-eating killer in this episode, so he decides to turn the tables on them and tries to kill B&B while he goes about his ritualistic work. What might play OK on the printed page does not fare so well on screen. More interesting is the subplot involving the return of Brennan's fugitive brother, so that he can see his sick stepdaughter. Brennan's dad figures into that return. We get to meet the previous Gormogon, by the way, for those who are into this story arc.
