Episode cast overview, first billed only:
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?


In the first few seconds of the opening scene, the clock beside the bed shows the time as 4:47 (civilian time). A minute and a half later, after the first "fade to white" the clock now shows 0543, which is military time. This possibly alludes that before the white flash was reality, albeit in the future, while after the flash is the dream sequence. See more »


The alarm clock in the first scene, which reads 4:47 is all black around the edges, whereas the second clock, showing 0543 has white writing (perhaps numbers) along the left, right and bottom sides of the display, suggesting the clocks were switched over during filming. Also, the second clock does not have a colon (:) between the hour and the minutes. See more »


Seeley 'Mr. B' Booth: Should I be upset that everyone thinks we're murderers, or just happy that everyone is trying to help us get away with it?
Temperance 'Bren' Brennan: You should recognize that everything they do to help us, make us look more guilty, especially you.

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.
