Storyline

Two 'hippies' fishing at the beach find a nearly consumed corps, a few weeks old. It's Patricia Ludmilla, the missing reverend of the close-knit Inclusion church parish on a fairly isolated island. She was a closet transsexual. Bones' blatant disbelief embarrasses devout Catholic Booth. Anthropology student Vincent Nigel-Murray proves his forensic talent and conversational wit. Angela reconstructs her male identity: TV preacher Patrick Stephenson, presumed dead, disappeared with a fortune in Thailand six years ago, leaving a wife Cecilia and teenage son Ryan, who left commercial religion. Written by KGF Vissers

Our fave Bones episode deals intelligently with hot-button issues
13 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is just about our favorite episode of our favorite series, because the characters have serious and intelligent discussions of a couple of our favorite subjects, religion and transgendered persons. Even more important, the scientists treat the deceased woman, who happened to be born as a man, with the utmost respect. Even the conservative Catholic Agent Booth insists that "she" will be referred to as such, because that's what she was at the time of her death. During the investigation, Brennan and Booth discuss, between themselves and with other characters, the relationship between religion and the LGBTQ community, especially regarding people with gender identity issues who choose to act on their innate tendencies. In the end, identifying the guilty party who's responsible for the woman's death becomes less important in the episode than what happens with the relationships and work that the deceased person had before her transformation and those to which she'd dedicated her life after she became the self she felt herself to be. And besides the fact that, as usual, the contrast between Brennan's atheism and Booth's mainstream faith adds a level of insight and humor, the added factor of the liberal religion of the deceased and her fellow worshipers give rise to some of the best parts of this episode. All in all, this episode gives B & B one of their best chances to do what they do very well!
