Trivia

A fictionalized spin on a real murder case. A few members of a Norwegian heavy metal band, Mayhem had engaged in a real murder. The band had a lead singer named Dead, who liked to cut himself and bleed on stage. "Mayhem on a Cross" features a lead singer from a fictional band who likes to do the same on stage. In April of 1991, Dead committed suicide. In 1993 band member Varg Vikernes brutally murdered the group's guitarist Euronymous. Euronymous had several cuts, many of them to the back and neck area. Vikernes claimed self defense, stating that he learned of a plot by Euronymous to in fact, murder him, and videotape the entire event for his own pleasure. Both Euronymous and Vikernes has earlier been involved in a plot to blow up several churches. In the end, Vikernes was sentenced to 21 years in prison. See more »

Goofs

MO of the Norwegian police is very far from reality. They would not be armed and probably not stop the concert at all. See more »

Special Agent Seeley Booth: I thought it was a justifiable shooting.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I agree.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: She agrees. See?

the best episode ever!
19 April 2009 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

First off all, I am a big fan of Bones, but after fabulous gravedigger I missed something in this series... But this episode brings back to me why I really love this series. Everyone can find something interesting in this episode: death metal, strong emotions, interesting psychology context, real good script and great humor.

Secondly, in this episode Sweets personality is developed and lifted to a new level. And, what's more, you can't miss Brennans interrogation scene...

In my opinion, it is the best episode to date.

10/10
