A young man's corps found on train tracks, crushed and scattered, at first sight from the nineteenth century, yet recently killed, fits missing Amish adolescent Levi Yoder. He was in DC for his Rumspringa, a single period outside the closed archaic hyper-devout community to taste temptation with mate Joseph Beachy and leave or commit to return for life, and marry his Amish beloved Sarah. Fellow pianist Sweets figures out the stones hidden under his bed are a practice 'keyboard', fancy detective work he was exceptionally gifted and auditioning at the National Conservatory and living with two 'English' musicians but died form a deep fall.

Did You Know?


Some scenes of the show are filmed in the same street sets as "How I Met Your Mother". If you see carefully, when leaving Michelle with her boyfriend, Dr. Saroyan passes by the McLaren's pub, recognizable for the basement window and the stoop leading to Ted's building. See more »


The character Sarah (Stephanie Turner) is Amish, and so cannot even wear makeup, but in the scene in which she is being interviewed, her ears can clearly be seen to be double-pierced. See more »


Dr. Clark Edison: [after being told that he will have to go out of the lab again to search for missing bones, using a stereotypical 'slave' accent] Well, is it all right if I get a drink of water, boss? You know, uh, it's awful hot out there, and them tools is mighty heavy.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: [Completely missing the reference] Of course you can get water. Why are you talking like that?
Dr. Clark Edison: Never mind. I'm going.

The song at the end
3 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can anyone tell me the name of the song that was playing as Booth revealed the killer? I google searched the lyrics and couldn't find anything. I'd really appreciate it.

Since I have to have 10 lines, I'm going to ramble a little bit. I thought it was a great episode. Very moving in my opinion. It has to take a lot for someone to give up their passion for music. I am not certain I could, unless it was a case similar to this one.

I like that they continue bringing back Bones' various assistants in the new episodes.

If anyone can help me figure out the name of the that song though, I would greatly appreciate it.
