Gormogon's Apprentice
Parole Officer Erica Davis


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

Did You Know?


Temperance ("Bones") says that Amy should call a Dr. Leo Getz. Leo Getz was Joe Pesci's character's name in the Lethal Weapon series. See more »


Hodgins describes the original Gormogons as a 17th century cult. The historic Gormogons were actually an early 18th century group, if they existed at all. They may have just been an elaborate practical joke by some anti-Masonic gentlemen. Furthermore, the Freemasonry movement formalised in early 18th century, and Illuminati (both Bavarian and Avignon orders) have been founded in the last quarter of 18th century. See more »


Ray Porter: How stupid do you think I am?
Dr. Temperance Brennan: At the moment, very, very stupid.

Creepy Episode
19 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a very creepy episode, mainly because I've watched these once and know who the new apprentice is. It shows a flash of him at the end. I actually paused it to see, and...well, let's just say that it does look a lot like him. But there is absolutely no hint that it is him...

And Booth's shooting at the end. I think he's pretty much mad at everyone - including Brennan - so I'm not sure who he was thinking about when he was target practicing.

We also see Brennan kiss Booth - on the cheek. Booth is obviously affected by this as he tries to quickly recover from it...

This is the second actual Gormogon story (you can count it the third if you ant to include the episode where they name him). I believe there is one more story - the finale where everything's revealed and it is really, really, really bad!!!
