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

Dr. Lance Sweets: [Sitting together at a restaurant over dinner helping Angela work out her feelings and how she should go about her pursuing a her relationship with Roxie] It's exactly the same situation as the last time you were sitting here. Except, you know, you're quieter.

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.
