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

Worst Episode Ever
21 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was despicable in every way, 100 of which are enumerated at TV.com, which can easily be found by Google search by those interested.

Hanson cynically revels in reactions like "shocking," "unpredictable" in his TV Guide interview.

I found the writing of this episode a cheap, expedient failure of creativity, the denouement anticlimactic and hollow. It was insulting to fans of the program. I don't think I'll ever be able to enjoy this show again. Plotting and story have frequently been juvenile and predictable throughout the series but the characters and relationships have consistently been compelling to me. However, the failure of this episode is irredeemable.
