Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Dr. Jack Hodgins (as TJ Thyne)


In Booth's elaborate hospital nightmare, most of the series' (semi-)regulars, including the alternating apprentices, Zach and Max, play very different characters. Several are suspects, defended by Caroline, in mob 'cleaner' Vorstenbach's murder in the toilet of a nightclub run by spouses Booth and Bones, which Iranian mob baron Arastoo is determined to take over. Sweets is the barman and Gormogon band's lead singer, Wendell the loyal bouncer, Vincent Nigel-Murray the cook and DJ, Hodges a crime writer. Jared and Saroyan are in charge of the FBI investigation, which is complicated by loyalties inspiring lies and other secret agenda's. Written by KGF Vissers

Angela Montenegro: Julian warned us that you have to make an arrest in the case. I just wanted to say that just because Jared Booth and I went out on a couple of dates and he cannot accept the fact that it is going nowhere, does not mean I should got to jail.
Jared Booth: Didn't your lawyer tell you not to answer any questions you weren't asked?
Detective Camille Saroyan: [to Julian] Should I mark your people down as stupid or uncooperative?
Caroline Julian: Put them down as well represented.

get real
14 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the hallmarks of a great series is the ability to step back (or forward) and demonstrate a sense of humor about itself. Not that there isn't some dark humor in Bones (after all, if nothing else Shakespeare made that a must to disrupt tragedy/drama). In this episode every character slips neatly into an alter ego that matches their regular series character as slick as slick can be. This is a ride. You don't take an amusement park ride seriously, you just enjoy it for what it is: an escape from the daily grind. This episode is a fun house. The mirror distortions are just enough to make you smile; but if you are a regular viewer you know just as you get to the end you will find yourself once again in the "real" world of the series. And that is just what happens here. And who doesn't like Iceland?
