An out-of-this-world case brings Brennan and Booth to New Mexico where they investigate human remains with extraterrestrial attributes. The victim is identified as a local UFO fanatic, known around town for her relentless search for alien life forms and whose latest "evidence" leads even Brennan and Booth to re-think outside existence. Meanwhile, a local sheriff refuses to release the bones, forcing the team at the Jeffersonian to work via satellite, and Angela and Jeffersonian intern Wendell come clean about their relationship.

Did You Know?
This episode implies that Roswell, New Mexico is a short drive, perhaps even within walking distance, from Juarez, Mexico. At one point, a character mentions that they see a glow over the horizon and somebody says the glow is coming from Mexico. In a direct line, Roswell is close to 150 miles from Juarez. The most direct driving route between the two towns is 208 miles and takes over 5 hours. See more

Dr. Temperance Brennan
