They belong to missing members of charismatic crook Tom Fargood's latest and last-ever project, for sufferers of a rare disease, MCS, which drives desperate enough to be easy victims. One of them is the sister of 'clairvoyant' Avalon Harmonia, whose predictions just seem to good to be true. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

During one of the first scenes, while Angela is doing a facial reconstruction on a skull, Cyndi Lauper's song "Fearless" is the music. This song comes from the album 'Sisters of Avalon'. 'Avalon' is the name of Lauper's character in the episode. The skull is that of Avalon's sister. See more »

Goofs

Angela enlarges one frame of a video stored on a MiniDisc. From the fuzzy picture, she pulls crystal clear details such as the name of a car rental company and the license plate. This is fundamentally impossible, but also one of the most persistent goofs in movies and TV. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm sorry, Ang. You know it's... my first case back. You know it's been a long day. Maybe I got something to prove. Sorry, you look - you look beautiful.
[Angela chuckles and kisses him on the forehead]
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Oh. Woul dyou like *me* to kiss you on the forehead too?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Sure.
[Bones chuckles and walks away]

Booth in love
19 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Predictably, Booth no longer suffers from amnesia at the start of the fifth season opener. But he has mixed feelings about things, including his feeling toward Brennan, and decides he is going to pour his heart out to her. Meanhile, a psychic (Lauper) puts B&B on the trail of a mass grave, where 12 people lie slain and forgotten. Getting at the murderer proves more difficult than expected. And Booth has suspicions about the psychic. A clown plays a key role. Not exactly a gangbuster opener for the new season, but it will have to do. Let's hope things pick up. Some of the excellent supporting cast members have little to do here, unfortunately.
