Storyline

The team's latest case takes Brennan back to her alma mater, Burtonsville High School, where she and Booth investigate the discovery of an unidentified skull and upper torso. With Angela's help, they identify the victim as one of Brennan's classmates, and notice a possible connection to a second murder committed 15 years prior. Brennan and Booth go undercover as a married couple at her class reunion to interrogate a set of suspects, where even as an adult, Brennan is still predictably misunderstood and her only friend lies in a strangely dark and offbeat janitor. Meanwhile, Hodgins spills a lab secret. Written by FOX Publicity

Goofs

Near the end, Angela states that the star was cut from the same saw that cut the ribs of the victim. Without actually having the star, she wouldn't be able to compare the tool marks from the photo Bones sent. See more »

The One Where Bones Goes Back To High School...
6 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. We get to see where Bones came from, which is very good, for me, anyway.

In this episode, we see Booth and Bones go back to Bones's old high school. It's her reunion, so you know what that means. Murder! I mean, party! But, unlucky for Bones, there was a murder. So she has to spend her high school reunion trying to find out who killed this girl. She goes back and sees her only friend, the janitor. Where someone makes a very funny joke. "He looks like Freddy Krueger". Funny things, he was Freddy Krueger. The man who plays the janitor was that famous role all the way back in the eighties. They make many references, including his hat, sweater and tools he uses. They had to do it. Honestly, it's my favorite part of the episode.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
