Storyline

Car junk yard robbers find a press-crushed wreck containing a corpse. It's identified as postmodernist 'crushing art' sculptor Geoffrey Thorne. Gallery owner Helen Bridenbecker claims that he planned to commit suicide by becoming part of his last sculpture, which can't be deconstructed until it's proven to be a murder case. His assistant and heir, Roxie Lyon, was Angela's lesbian partner at college. A 89th fracture on his skull proves he was first murdered. Suspects also include his rival, forger Lucas 'Anton Deluca' Denton. Sweets convinces Angela it's time to dare date again. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When Brennan questions the legality of Booth picking a door lock he says if anyone asks, to say it was already open. However, under the law, anyone who enters property that he does not have a legal right to do, even if he walks in through a wide open door, is committing "breaking and entering", something an FBI agent would know.

Dr. Jack Hodgins: Sweets is firing Daisy for us.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: We're wondering what his method will be.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: He'll explain to her logically that this environment is not conducive for either her or us and, as a scientist, she'll realize that he's right.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No, Sweets is a lot sneakier than that. He'll use some kind of psychological Jedi mind trick to make her think it was her idea to quit.

Was it murder or suicide? That's what the team must find out when the corpse of an avant garde artist is found inside a crushed car. Because the crushed car may represent a suicidal form of art and therefore worth a lot of money, the court orders the team to keep their hands off the thing. Which means they cannot extricate the body. So examining it gets very tricky. Booth and Brennan have a look at some of the dead guy's art, created with found objects. Booth of course is clueless. Brennan, God bless her and her closeted upbringing, proves less so. Guys will enjoy this episode for another reason. It involves two women and their lips.
