Brennan and Booth investigate a set of uniquely disfigured remains allegorizing biblical text. As they acquire more information about the victim, a former patient of Dr. Adam Copeland at Havenhurst Sanitarium, they are confronted with suspects who are hard to characterize as either good or evil. Meanwhile, Jeffersonian intern Arastoo Vaziri reveals a secret about his past. Written by
In stating cause of death Vaziri says, "I found microfractures on the maxillary and mandibular." The bones that extend from the upper teeth and hard palate to the bridge of the nose is the maxilla. 'Maxillary' is an adjective meaning 'of or pertaining to the maxilla'. Ditto for 'mandible' (jawbone) and 'mandibular'. See more »
(at around 14 mins) Booth, Brennan, and Sweets are examining a painting made by mental health patient Neviah Larkin. Brennan notes that in the painting Neviah "... replaced Longinus, the soldier who drove his spear through Christ's side, with her own face. Further, "she's put the murder victim's face in place of the crucified devil." In keeping with the biblical theme, the crucified victim in the painting, whose face was replaced, would be Jesus - not "the devil." See more »
As a disclaimer, I really like this show. But seriously, this episode was rad. The writing is really getting better and better in this show, and I love the themes (this one, and the 007 episode have been my favorites). As someone involved in the criminal justice system, I really like the portrayal of the characters, especially the victims and their assorted tails. I hope they continue to give Michael Peterson (the writer for this one and the 007 episode) more and more episodes to write... looking back on my favorite episodes, he has been the writer for each. Seriously, that guy is cool, and just really starting to come into his own. Someone should give him a movie deal if he writes features.
