Storyline

In Howard Fileman's house, which is for sale, estate agent Katie Selnick and two prospective buyers discover a corpse, charred except for a fat foot. Clever forensics gradually show it was actually two people, a fat man and PricoCo saleswoman Meg Tracy, who recently lost half her excessive weight and met her lover in a fetishist club. Seely however is greatly distracted by a surprise visits from 'pops' Hank Booth, who left his retirement home after hitting a male nurse and now tries to 'correct' Booth's life, but rather lost control of his own.

Quotes

Hank: Well if I was a better man, maybe I - I could've figured something else out. But when I saw my son hitting Seely, beating that little kid. That was it! I said "Get out. You don't deserve to be a father. Get out!" He never came back. So I-I was left with this - with the two boys.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You're a good man, Hank.
Hank: I didn't know what else to do. He was beating my grandson... Look, when the time is right, you'll tell him. And if, uh, if he needs it, you'll hold him, okay?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Okay.

B&B investigate a double homicide - the corpses are of an incredibly obese couple bludgeoned and burned to death on a bed in a vacant house up for sale. Booth's grandpa comes to pay a visit and stay with Booth for a little while. Grandpa is played by Ralph Waite, who played Jethro's dad on NCIS a season or two back. So I guess this makes Booth and Jethro related somehow. Not much else going on here, although Waite gets to dance with two very large women in a nightclub for large women. I would be happy to see Waite turn up again on a future episode. As the man who raised Booth (and his brother), Grandpa quickly sees that B&B are meant for each other and makes no bones about it. Pun intended. As usual, the killer is rather obvious, but that's part of the fun as B&B, and Brennan's lab crew, must figure things out bit by bit.
