At the beginning of part II, when Booth is asking Bones why she doesn't appreciate the ancient appeal of Britain, he says he'd like Congress to make him a Knight. However, the U.S. Constitution specifically forbids any such thing in the last paragraph of Article I, Section 9. And if by some chance the Queen of England offered to make him a Knight of the Realm, it would require a special Act of Congress before he could accept it. See more »

Booth hates England
22 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Brennan adjusts well in England, Booth has a lot of issues. He doesn't understand a lot of the sayings, he has a lot of trouble driving, and he surely doesn't like the fact that the good anthropologist is trying to get Brennan to sleep with him! But he does his best to deal as they work together to find out who killed an American girl - and why.

Meanwhile, back at the lab, Angela's husband shows up. She and Jack ask him for a divorce, but he is still in love with Angela!

This is a rather humorous episode, followed by a finale that ended on a very tragic side. Everyone has adjusted, and we'll soon get to meet the interns that can't really take Zack's place, but try.
