Storyline

The weird face of a hydrogen sulphate-affected corpse, found floating in a river fits Nick Rabin, head of personnel at industrial chicken farm Clucksten, which is opposed by John Collins's animal rights campaigners and baker Roy Meyers's group of smell-bothered neighbors. Nick's severed thumbs and toes were used at protests elsewhere. His widow, Gaynor, anonymously helped Josh. Meanwhile Booth worries about his character judgment instincts and Angela is emotionally obsessed with 'saving' a piglet. Written by KGF Vissers

What Booth would do
4 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The main story in this episode is about a man found and brought into the lab by a group of girls. It turns out that the man works in a chicken farm. The reason for his death is an old one.

Angle, still going without sex, is becoming sentimental. When she starts researching the cruel murder of chickens, she decides to save a pig. This causes a big argument between Angela and the ever-logical Brennan. Brennan goes to Booth for advice who declares he would do anything for her. "I would die for you and I would kill for you." But he wouldn't get between two best friends. As Brennan starts to leave, still upset, it hurts Booth so much that he takes her hand and promises everything would be okay.

Later, Booth goes back on his word and gives Brennan a piece of advice that she, of course, follows.

The scenes between Booth and Brennan in the restaurant were just sweet and romantic, as usual.

Angela ends her months of celibacy with a surprising person.
