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

Very Enjoyable Episode
19 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though the murder in this episode was not as fascinating as others, the storyline following Booth, his brother, and their past was very interesting. Booth is my favorite character and I enjoyed seeing a humble, selfless side of him in this episode that really showed the great man that he is. Also good development between Booth and Bones who had their first real fight in this episode. If you are like me, you love to see the slow but definite development of a relationship between Bones and Booth and this episode had a lot of great moments between them. And we got to see Bones push Booth's brother off a stool which I greatly enjoyed. Overall this was a very enjoyable episode.
