Children on treasure hunt find in a sewer the fast decomposing corpse of Bruce Kim's estranged wife Kendra. She was in town for Imagicon, a traveling SciFi & Fantasy convention, where she was to auction off the prized Excalibur Sword used in the first Fantasy movie Le Morte D'Artur. Horrible back-ache aggravated by Bones' amateur chiropractics keeps Booth bed-ridden. Sweets the 'walking polygraph', Hodges and constantly depressed Fisher enjoy helping agent Perotta and Bones investigate. Undercover parts prove particularly dangerous after toad blood allows Hodgings to trace the sword. Written by

Most large conventions have some type of props or weapons check for people dressing in costume. This prevents real weapons from being potentially used to harm people. Kendra, as a dealer in the convention, would know that realistic weapons like a metal sword would be against convention rules and could possibly lead to her expulsion from the convention. Additionally, Kroon would be aware of this rule as well and would most likely refuse to look at the sword while in the convention. See more

I've seen many unusal murder weapons, so the fact that I don't recognize *this* one, eliminates the others.
Wow. My kind of silver lining. It's depressing.
