A wine cask sealed years ago by cellar-master Bruce Hanover in Sean Mortenson's well-reputed Virginia winery contains the remains of influential wine critic Spencer Holt. While the forensic team searches for precise cause of death and weapon, the criminal investigation soon digs up possible motives in wine economics and marital infidelity. However the Jeffersonian team is more preoccupied with Bones' announcement she wants a baby, and expect model male Booth to donate the sperm. Sweets had a hard time making them admit the relational significance, but something worse surprises even him. Written by
Stewie was allowed to appear in this episode because Bones & Family Guy are both owned and broadcasted on FOX network channels. See more »
When the wine barrel was being examined it was revealed that the wine had turned into a viscous vinegar-like liquid. This would have been noticeable during the wine tasting as would the rancid smell. See more »
I saw Rosimili's review and it just made me smile so I had to post a review. This review is about this episode as well as the whole series. The reason I laughed was because this show seems to be meant for people like Rosimili. (And me!) The tone of the series has changed and this is because the characters have changed. Bones is a show heavily based on character development. (That means change!) All of the psychology and deep things about the characters play a huge part in each episode and result in the characters progressing... For the better! The point of it is that yes it has lost some of the grit and seriousness which it did so well(although I think it still has a good amount and still does it well, I'm also not sure those are the precise words to use, but anyway), it lost some of that because the characters are losing it a bit at a time as well. It's on purpose. I'm sure the show could have stayed the same if it wanted but that is so out of line with what the show is based on. (Character development) Each character has gone through a lot of development, emerging from depressive/unhealthy issues into a more healthy head space little by little. They are becoming happier more mentally healthy people. This results in a bit happier less depressed tone. (Again not sure if I'm using perfect words but I hope I'm communicating my point well enough) The goal I think is that in a way we grow along with the characters. We learn from it. It has good positive messages. I can understand however how some people wouldn't be ready for such a change. We might feel as though without the issues and depressed tone, it's not real anymore, because depression/unhealthy issues may be our only reality. (It's definitely mine and most people's I believe to some extent, I love how the show has so much psychology in it, more people need therapy than realize it) That doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the show though! The show wants to show us that reality is what we make it, it doesn't have to be so jaded and depressing. Anyway, I'm sure I didn't communicate my point as well as I hope but I just think the show is really good :) and succeeds at doing what it was always meant to do. Even if people aren't ready for it. Or just plain don't like it. :)
