Storyline

A state police anti-drugs-bust training meth-lab explosion reveals an adult male corpse, circa 48. It seems to correspond to inventor Paul Stegman's absent, recently turned-up father Jim, an addict, last seen by Paul's ex-business partner, Mike Campbell. That proves a set-up, the exploded corpse is conman Anthony Pongetti, who was tortured. The real Jim's corpse was shot and found at sea near a naval base. Pongetti stole Jim's identity, fooling even the family. Seeley Booth enjoys a visit from his kid brother, US Navy lieutenant commander Jared Booth, an ambitious smooth operator and Cam's ex, but with an alcohol problem. More family and drug cash complicate the case too. Written by KGF Vissers

The better Booth
24 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was another great episode. The crime story itself was a bit confusing, but I think that's because I was so focused on the rest.

Booth's younger brother is introduced in this episode. Jared needs a good dose of reality, but Booth has always taken care of him and sacrifices much to do so. Brennan begins to think that Booth is a loser (quite harsh, if you ask me); but is soon set straight on a few things. She and Booth have their first real fight, which causes a wedge between them through part of the episode. Brennan's eyes are opened, then she opens Booth's.

They make up over a piece of cake.

This was another sweet episode, though I was a bit disappointed in Brennan.
