Storyline

A man's corpse is found in a field, totally torn-up in an agricultural harvest shredder, later identified as Tommy Sour. He was reported missing by his neighbor, an artist whom his incessant noise annoyed terribly. Tommy was a fitness instructor in a gym, and an amateur singer in a night-club, which spurs Zach to demonstrate his own unknown vocal talent. In both scenes Tommy made enemies, providing both suspects with motives and theories for the prior decapitation murder-weapon, some sort of metal string. Tommy also was romantically stalked by a gym client (Pam), according to shrink Sweets a potential killer, who alas turns her 'favor' upon Booth after a single touch from the studly interrogator. Alibis keep crossing those theories, until a kinky variation hits the nail, and alas something else hits an unintentional target. Written by KGF Vissers

Booth is totally in love!!!
21 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is one of the best episodes of Season 3 - mainly because of the last five minutes of the episode!

It's rare we get to see the victim before they die. I wish we could see that more often - kinda adds a tragic element to the story. As usual, the episode takes several twists before revealing the killer - sort of odd...

I loved watching Booth while Brennan was singing. It was so into her during that song. Everyone watching him - then watching the very end as Brennan cried - knew...I loved the way Jack took charge and Angela stood in shock staring...The whole scene was very well done, but I just cannot get over watching Booth!!!

Why are these two not together?!
