Brennan and Booth are called to investigate what appears to be charred human remains on an electrical fence. The mysterious corpse is later determined to be a mummified Egyptian royal on loan to the Jeffersonian. The anthropological mystery has Brennan in a tizzy, and when the Jeffersonian curator prepping the mummy for exhibition is murdered, the team suspects foul play. Brennan's investigation of the curator sheds new light on the life of the Egyptian royal, turning their case into one of historic proportions. Meanwhile, Brennan goes on a date with Booth's supervisor and former intern, and Sweets' girlfriend Daisy Wick returns to the Jeffersonian. Written by

Angela is incorrect in her statement that canopic jars were too unimportant to be painted - they would, in fact, up be inscribed and the lids (until including the 18th dynasty) be topped with the carved heads of protective deities. Tutankhamen even had lavishly fashioned mini-sarcophagi for his inner organs, rather than ordinary jars. See more »
B&B have a look at what at first appears to be the charred remains of a young man. Turns out it is a mummy, and at least 3,000 years old. It has been stolen from a museum, and something removed from the chest. Angela plays a crucial role in helping Bones determine what was taken, and why. This is a tricky episode, and the killer is not who you think it is. Watch carefully for the clues to lead you to the right person. B&B have a very romantic moment that is of course nipped in the bud by the sudden arrival of her crew. The scene is so well done, it took me back to similar "almost there" moments in several romantic flicks of the 1930s and '40s. And it is set in a darkened museum, of all places.
