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

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 »

Yet another misfire for Bones
14 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Acknowledging the attempt at a change of pace, I stopped watching after ten minutes though I kept checking back at the commercials on the program I switched to, but it never got any better. It was an opportunity for every character to make an appearance, except one. I don't watch the show to see that. I watch for the humor and repartee between the characters and the unusual cases they get involved in and eventually solve through the team effort of the whole cast. They always seem to have at least one episode per season that just doesn't work. This was that one. I know they are fighting for ratings, sometimes they are fairly good, sometimes rated lower. I don't think it really has anything to do with the quality of the show, just that it's on FOX and the only shows that stand out on that network are House, American Idol, and 24 and 24 is getting old and when AI completes its season, FOX's ratings drop as well. I enjoy Bones, have liked David B. since Buffy and Angel and have noticed Emily D. in guest spots on several older shows, one where she was the 'bad guy'. Keep up the 'good' work and I'll keep watching.
