Storyline

Hodgins, Bones and author Thomas Vega are officially suspected of stealing FBI evidence concerning the Grave Digger, who once buried both team members alive. The team aborts Bones' award gala after the fiend sends a coded message: he has captured Booth and will asphyxiate him in a coffin within 24 hours unless the evidence is paid as ransom. Now Hodgins admits he has it, but convinces the others to try first 8 hours to identify the monster. Vega is found murdered in his car. Meanwhile Booth suffers a hallucination - he is with the ghost of corporal Edward 'Teddy' Parker, whom his best efforts couldn't save in combat. Teddy seems to help his efforts to escape from his 'coffin', an entire Navy ship loaded with explosives. The evidence is handed over, with disappointing result. Booths' brother Jarod risks everything to enable more illegal moves even after once special agent Payton Perotta has them all taken from the case. Written by KGF Vissers

Sink Sank Sunk
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not crazy about ongoing story arcs involving fancily-named serial killers. First it was (yawn) Gormagon, now it's the (yawn) Gravedigger. The Gravedigger has kidnapped Bootb and stuck him in an old battleship that is about to be sunk for the fishes to enjoy. Brennan and crew race to discover Booth's whereabouts. The gimmick that makes the episode watchable is the ghost of a long-dead Ranger helps Booth work his way out of his death trap. This lends a little eeriness and suspense to an episode that otherwise doesn't have a whole lot going on. Keep an eye out for the final shot, to see who is waving to whom. And keep in mind that Brennan does not believe in ghosts,
