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.

Every character in this episode consistently mispronounces the word "Rumspringa", including the Amish. Which is odd, because it's pronounced exactly as it's spelled. Rum-spring-a. They incorrectly pronounce it Room-spring-a. See more »

PLEASE, does anyone know WHICH Number 'Etudes', and in which key, Levi played in the DVD which his sad parents saw at the end. I have been playing my two dvds of all the Chopin 'Etudes' and have become thoroughly mixed up and cannot fathom out which Number Levi was playing. If anyone can help I would be most grateful. Thankyou. When I previewed this, it said there was a spelling mistake in using 'dvds' -but surely everyone uses 'dvds' or 'DVDs' !!! This was a very sad episode, building up the story - but I think a very rushed ending with a petty thief we knew nothing about ! Isn't the key to these sort of shows the audience trying to guess who the murderer is. And I hardly think Amish girls and young men would be quite so hedonistic as showed when Brennan and Booth called at the flat of Joseph and saw the 'party'. A very topsy-turvy world for them - but surely not to the extent of illicit and wrong sex, and drugs, which their very conscience from their upbringing would FEEL wrong to do.
