Poachers in a pelican reserve find a recently burned skeleton which is soon identified as USMC Special Ops Calvin Warren, discharged three years ago. Bones isn't pleased that her father, ex-science teacher Max, is employed in the museum to show kids around, although he does a great job. She gets him fired after he helps Hodgins and Brey with forensic experiments. Cal had a painkiller problem and was employed as a 'nanny'-bodyguard for CEO Richard King's kids, Royce and Alexa, at the exclusive Woodbury school. Upper class families prove interesting suspects. Booth worries if he's giving his boy Parker all possible advantages. Written by KGF Vissers

The wildlife agent is concerned because the bones are supposedly in the migration path of the Masked Booby. The Masked Booby is a 'least concern' species so its habitat is not protected and is a tropical bird, seldom seen north of Florida. See more »

Do it for me
25 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is about a military man - turned - Nanny who gets killed. Several people are looked at for this, but the person that did the killing may be shocking and very, very sad.

Brennan is upset when she discovers her father is working at the Jeffersonian. She asks Cam to fire him, then does so herself. Her father uses some interesting tactics to get Booth to talk to her. How does Booth approach this?

"Do it for me."

We know that anytime those words are uttered from Booth or Brennan, it gets done.

We also get to watch Parker. I wish he could have been in the show more.
