The One Where Santa Blew Up...
2 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It makes me laugh because of Zooey Deschanel being in it, but it also makes me sad because of the fact that Santa Claus blew up into a million pieces.

In this episode, we see a man dressed up in a Santa Claus suit, rob a bank and then explode. Turns out that he was being blackmailed into robbing the bank, but the mean blackmailer blew him up anyway. Also, the main reason I love this episode, Zooey Deschanel joins her sister Emily in this fun episode. Zooey plays Bones' distant relative, and throughout the entire episode, people compare them to being sisters. A fun little Easter Egg hiding throughout. Not really an Easter Egg, but that's what I'm calling it.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
