Did You Know?


The closing ice rink sequence is a strong echo of the scene in Buffy where Angel takes Buffy skating and is seen by Bianca Lawson's character Kendra. See more »


When Agent Perotta is talking to Booth in the interrogation room, it shows the camera behind her and you can see she is writing something but when the camera faces her, she's not writing anything. Then the camera immediately shows her from the back and it's seen she's writing something again but when the camera faces her for a 2nd time, she's not writing anything. See more »


Special Agent Seeley Booth: [while ice skating] Hey, you know what? Forget about Agent Perotta, all right? Nothing gonna change between me and you.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well entropy is a natural force that pulls everything apart at a subatomic level. Everything changes.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Not everything, Bones.
[gives Bones a push]
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [Bones laughs] Don't.

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.
