Great episode, besides the Asian male reference. Angela and Hodgens get some closer. Funny creepy intern.
3 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great episode! I had to find out who the writer was, because I loved the snappy dialog. The best dialog, I think, so far this season. I enjoyed the creepy intern, but am waiting to see if they actually keep one. Bones is very funny in this episode when she is picking on Booth. The case had a great cast of characters It was fun trying to guess who the killer was. Or was she killed. By the Asian man, pot head, the guy who was recently fired. Or was it the boss, the man from India or the Wife. Another cool turn of events was figuring out how she died. Hilarious to watch Booth try to open the elevator door. A parallel story is that Booth wants this chair that is suppose to elevate his stature and Bones has fun at his expense calling him a drone. But he works for the US government.
