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

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: [Quietly] Everything okay there, Bones? I know when there's something wrong with you. Something's wrong, right? What can I do to help?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Angela and I had a fight.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: [Loudly] Nothing I can do to help!
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You want to hear about it?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Why not?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Why? Because her and Angela are best friends. And Bones is gonna want me to take her side and agree that Angela was wrong. And then you know, the two of them are going to make up and then they're going to get mad at me. So no thank you.

Right in the neck
7 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A chicken farmer is found murdered, and the team goes to visit the chicken farm to find out why. They run into angry protesters and neighbors and some really hinky farm workers. In fact, the killer is evident from +the moment he/she appears on screen. But the episode is not dependent on the killer's identity. It is a guessing game as to what killed the farmer, and how. His corpse reveals some very odd damage. Meanwhile, Angela goes off the deep end in her enforced celibacy, and Sweets tries to pull her back form the brink. A good episode, if a little gorier than most. It also features some nice, breezy banter between B&B at their favorite diner.
