During the episode, Hodgins is shown eating a tower of wings. In the episode with Booth in the coma (S4 E25 The End of the Beginning), Fisher (Joel Moore as the cook in the night club) claims to have created this dish. See more »


The flashing alarm clock in the victim's apartment shows the time as 4:47. This time appears on this clock at both the beginning and end of the episode. Even when a clock has been unplugged and plugged back in (making it flash), the time will still advance. The chance of the time being the same in both instances is 720:1, unless we're able to see the PM indicator, in which it's 1440:1. See more »


Special Agent Seeley Booth: Sorry. I just... I don't do really good with change, I guess.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You're better than I am.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Pyramids are better at change than you are... Joke. Okay? I was being affectionate.

Everything Changes
20 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's about time Brennan was unfocused, unsure and conflicted! Maybe next season will show a more 'human' Brennan. While the character shouldn't make extreme changes, the persistent complete lack of understanding living human interaction is irritating.

There is enough uncertainty to wonder if some of the characters will be returning next season. Hodgins, Angela, Dr. Saroyan, Sweets, and Miss Julian need to return for next season...Daisy, maybe. But, only the 6th season will tell.

Overall, a lovely ending to the season. AND, TJ Thyne has wicked gorgeous eyes!!
