The relatively new corpse found in the contents of an accidentally exploded outhouse is identified as Bill O'Rourke, star of a TV show that publicly exposes adulterous spouses, which provides a list of subjects with strong motives. Booth even enlists a stalker to tail Jim Dodd, who best fits the profile according to Sweets. Furthermore, studio politics and love life provide further suspects. Booth's doubts about Bones's polyandry with a man for sex and another for conversation prove founded. Lance gets a crush on overzealous forensic showoff-apprentice Daisy Wick. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride eye drops (OTC remedy for bloodshot eyes) given in a drink would not cause diarrhea as the drug is an alpha agonist. More likely the drug would cause nausea, vomiting and possibly constipation. The whole concept is a debunked urban myth that any decent scientist would have researched the facts behind the myth before basing a story arc on it. See more »

Bones has a boyfriend
22 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's always fun to watch Booth when Brennan has a boyfriend. He is so jealous, it's funny. In this episode, Brennan has two boyfriends - one for physical satisfaction, and the other for intellectual satisfaction. Booth doesn't like either one. He enjoys when the two boyfriends meet, but the episode ends with a very enduring scene at the end that makes Sweets very, very happy. Yep, everyone knows what's going on!

We also meet Intern, Daisy. Daisy continues to be on the show in the eleventh season. In this episode, she is quite annoying, as are most of the interns in the beginning. She and Sweets connect right off and will continue to throughout the show.
