Booth, still suffering some lingering effects from his brain surgery, has to get re-certified for FBI marksmanship, but is not the accurate shot he was before going under the knife. Meanwhile, the team at the Jeffersonian investigates the remains of a little person discovered in a sinkhole. The victim, Bryce DaFonte, also known as "The Iron Leprechaun," competed in a popular wrestling league, but the popularity of the franchise left him with many enemies, including bitter competitors and scorned lovers, any of whom could have caused his downfall.

During the original air date, Fox was having a "Tribute to The Simpsons" week during which their shows would somehow reference The Simpsons
(1989). In this episode, Dan Castellaneta
(who voices Homer Simpson) makes a guest appearance. Also, in the first scene inside the lab at the Jeffersonian, an X-Ray of Homer Simpson's head is clearly hanging in the background. See more
In season 4 Booth's brain tumor is diagnosed as a cerebellar pilocytic astrocytoma; however in this episode, when Booth thinks his marksmanship may have been affected by the brain tumor, Bones tells him it's unlikely because his tumor wasn't cerebellar. She says the tumor was in the tempero-parietal region. While it is possible his initial diagnosis was incorrect (this was not addressed on the show) it is highly unlikely that these two regions of the brain would be confused on a CAT scan. See more
