Storyline

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 Fox Publicity

Trivia

Dr. Camille Saroyan mentions that one might be grumpy if after death one had one's brain sucked through one's nostrils and placed in a canopic jar, but as anyone really into mummies and Egyptians knows it's the organs of the body that are placed into canopic jars, the brain of the mummy is generally believed to be discarded.

Goofs

Hodgins says no Ancient Egyptians had red hair, however Queen Tiye (wife to Amenhotep III and mother of Akhenaten) had red hair as did a pre-Dynastic mummy called Ginger for his ginger hair. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Oh, The Mummy. 1932.
Dr. Camille Saroyan: You don't know who Brittney Spears is, but you know this movie?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's the film that made me want to be an anthropologist. Although I prefer Chaney's mummy to Karloff's.

Mummy dearest
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
