Storyline

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

Goofs

At the end of this episode, Bones says that the idea of soul mates originated with Plato. The story she refers to is from the Symposium, written by Plato. But the story of the round people with four arms and four legs is not told by Socrates (whom always holds Plato's theories in his writings), but by Aristophanes - a comedian playwright, who often made fun of Socrates in his plays. So Plato lets him tell this ridicules story (which has absolutely no counterpart in the Greek myths), to display Aristophanes' ignorance and lack of philosophy. See more »

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.
