Shortly after Booth is banned to the ice-hockey bench from beating up fire department Pete Carlson, who hits his 'fragile' teammate Wendell Bray, the bully's corpse turns up in a frozen lake. Booth is technically the first suspect, yet remains 'advising.' Bones' team officially works with agent Payton Perotta, who actually digs Booth. Sweets helps examine the key, social team dynamics.

The slaying of a hockey player puts Booth on the hot seat, as he had heated words and one hell of a fistfight with the guy just hours before. Brennan of course insists that all of the rink ice be melted and sent back to her lab. Boreanz appears to do quite a bit of his own skating, by the way, and was pretty impressive. At one point, Booth is knocked unconscious and has the weirdest dream, which I am not going to spoil. Suffice it to say, the dream puts Booth on the right track to catching the killer. To some degree, one's tolerance for this episode will depend on how one feels about hockey. I grew up playing hockey, thanks to my Canadian-born dad, so I was fine with it.
