Storyline

Meriel Mitsakis' body is found, mechanically crushed in a recycling plant. She had experimental plastic toe surgery, as final touch for a life long-planned perfect wedding with Mike. Tracing her wedding dress, Booth and Bones see Sweets' bossy girl, crazy Daisy, being fitted for one, presumably with her fiancé. Against Booth's and the others' advise, Bones ends up telling Lance. Meriel's multiple infidelity made her enemies, some without alibi. She was overrun by the car owned by her date (from the cellphone-proximity dating service) which Hodgins also uses. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When visiting the bridal shop, the owner calls Anya a bridal consultant. But when Booth questions her, she describes doing alterations on the dress, which means that the owner should have referred to her as something along the lines of a "alterations consultant", or "seamstress". See more »

Pizza, anyone?
19 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B have about as nasty a corpse to deal with as has ever been seen on this show: a smooshed body has been found in the midst of a pile of compressed cardboard sheets due for recycling. Worse, the head has been run over by a very large car tire. The remains are even more nauseating than the guy who was thrown out of an airplane. Tryng to remove the remains from the cardboard sheeting proves tricky, until the latest intern falls back on his days as a pizzeria worker. I will leave the rest to your imagination. Sometimes, I think BONES and NCIS are competing for the grossest corpse prize on a commercial TV show, if there is such a thing. Meanwhile, Brennan thinks Sweets' gal pal is cheating on him and wants desperately to tell Sweets, but not if Booth can help it. Much comedy ensues. A very good episode, if you can stand a corpse that looks like a giant smooshed pizza. Mayim "Blossom" Bialik has a small part, and I'm sorry to say she still hasn't gotten her nose fixed.
