The milestone 100th episode takes viewers back in time six years as Brennan and Booth recount the first case they worked on together. With Sweets finishing his book on their partnership, Brennan and Booth take this opportunity to set the record straight. A young and rebellious FBI Agent Booth seeks the help of an team of anthropological scientists and a street artist to find the evidence that will prove his high-profile suspect guilty. Although in unfamiliar territory, Dr. Brennan, her grad student Zack and Hodgins get right to work, impressing Booth with their knack for uncovering new leads and substantiating his theory about a well-connected district judge. While the case cements a foundation for a successful future partnership, it also reveals the convoluted romantic beginnings of the formidable duo - whose feelings for each other almost destroyed the team but still linger years later.

The 100th episode is almost as flamboyant and "out there" as the dream episode that wrapped up one of the previous seasons, the one in which Bones and Booth are married. In "Whole," B&B tell Sweets, who is wrapping up work on his book about them, about their very first case together. It involves a young woman's skeleton, back when the team wasn't really yet a team. The episode is a howl. Zach is back, because of course he was there at the very beginning. Hodgins sports a wild wig (remember his goofy hair in the first couple of seasons?) and is even more ornery than usual. Angela is a sidewalk artist, although she and Brennan know each other and Brennan will soon enlist her services in the female skeleton case. Booth and Brennan are incredibly awkward around each other at first. There is a surprising coda to the episode that will either endear or infuriate series fans. While not as deliciously creative as the dream episode, this one has more than its share of memorable moments. Wait until you see B&B calling each other names.
