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

Did You Know?


Jack Hodgins was named after an author friend of series creator Hart Hanson. Hodgins being portrayed a writer in this alternate-universe episode is likely a reference to this. See more »


When Cam (as the Detective) pulls out the .38 that was hidden in the sound system she refers to it as a "Saturday Night Special" and "totally disposable". In fact it's am older model Colt Detective Special, a collector's item that would never be referred to as a Saturday Night Special. Ironically her next line is about crime novelists ""always getting it wrong". See more »


Detective Camille Saroyan: Good morning, I'm Detective Saroyan.

Everyone is mad because Booth and Bones still aren't together...
16 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure, you feel like you were lied to. "But, they were together in the dream and now they are not and it's like so disappointing!" GET OVER IT! They will be together, in time. Have patience(HIMYM is having the same trouble with the Barney/Robin relationship, slow to go, but it is inevitable). I found this episode to be entertaining and insightful to Booth's mind. In his coma dream he mumbles the facts of his life(him and Bones being married instead of just partners, his brother is a cop instead of him). These mumbled thoughts reveal some truths, like how he would like to marry Bones(along with a few telling lines, Sweets, "I'm a bartender, I'm practically a psychologist." And to Zach, "You're the kind of guy who'd go to jail for not killing someone."). Point is, it was interesting and allowed for extended drama. No one could see it coming, as all previews made it look like Booth was fine and everyone was solving a crime. I liked it and now can't wait for the next season. Of course, that last thirty seconds makes me worry about next season.
