Storyline

Shot by his 'stalker', Booth is buried with military honor. Later he gets slapped and verbally persecuted into his bath by Bones for being alive without telling her, as a trap for a criminal who vowed revenge. Sweets is disappointed the team ignores his fine TV interviews. A boiled mandible from the next Gormogon victim is found. Its forensics go spectacularly wrong, literally exploding. Zach's hands are permanently damaged -finally bringing the team to show affection- but so is the case's evidence. Sweets' profile points to Hodgins, Saroyan's 'police gut' to Sweets, as both had opportunity, no outsider. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The three letters Cam describes to Zack in the hospital are the Greek alphabet letters 'pi', 'beta' and 'alpha', in that order. See more »

Goofs

When Bones confronts Booth in his bathroom he stands naked in front of her without covering himself. Bones says it's refreshing his Puritan values didn't cause him embarrassment. Sexual modesty was a particular attribute of the Victorians, not the Puritans, and a learned anthropologist like Brennan would know this. See more »

Killer
27 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The serial killer Gormagon is apparently back, and strange things start happening in the lab. A human mandible is sent to Brennan, and the skeleton into which it fits then disappears completely. An explosion in the lab leaves Zach with 3rd degree burns, and suspicion falls on Hodgins as the possible apprentice to the notorious serial killer. Meanwhile, Booth fakes his own death to catch an elusive killer, but doesn't tell Brennan. She is furious with him, of course. It turns out Booth wanted to let Brennan know, but it was left up to the staff psychiatrist to inform her, and he chose not to. A strange, sort of disconnected episode. The usual humor is sorely missing.
