When a subway train is thrown off the track by 60,000 gallons of flood water, a partially skeletonized body emerges out of the overflow. While Dr. Sweets, a passenger on the derailed train, copes with post traumatic stress, the rest of the team and intern Daisy Wick get to work on identifying the victim as Martin Aragon, a professional ghost writer caught up in a deadly love triangle. Meanwhile, Brennan releases her second book to great success, but has to accommodate a nosy reporter, and Sweets' near-death experience leads him to make a drastic decision. Written by FOX Publicity

In season 4's episode where the team attends a funeral for a fallen colleague and sneak him to the lab, they use Angela's Toyota Matrix. In this episode, we see Angela driving a Sienna. Although there is no way of determining the time between the episodes, it's unlikely that Angela traded cars so soon. This would be a result of Toyota obviously sponsoring the vehicles for the show where in most shows when cars are driven the brands are never mentioned and insignias are usually hidden. Dr Brennen also drives a Prius, also made by Toyota. See more »

Love story
11 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The skeleton of a murder victim is discovered in a subway tunnel, which turns out to be the least important part of this episode. Bones is being shadowed by a journalist from Japan, who is less interested in forensics than the romantic relationships among the characters in Brennan's latest novel. There's a recurring gag about what occurs on page 187 of her book, which turns out to have been inspired by the perpetually horny Angela. Meanwhile, a near-death experience on the subway has Sweets shaken to his core. The episode is quite humorous, although the subplot with Sweets is deadly serious. And the young actor who plays Sweets gets to shine here in a way he is rarely allowed.
