Goofs

When Angela and Hodgsons are stopped by the sheriff, they say that they are driving north from the crime scene to deliver evidence to the lab. The crime scene is in Carroll County, which is north of D.C. They should be driving south. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Jack Hodgins: It's a little outside my expertise, but they look like bat bones to me. You missed that Clark?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, Clark's error is completely understandable. Given the condition of the remains, and the bizzare nature of their circumstances.
Dr. Clark Edison: Thank you Dr. Brennan.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Yeah, but I made the call on a piece-of-crap cathode ray tube while in jail.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, that's right. You're in jail.

"The circle is now complete." So, Kathy Reichs served as an inspiration for Bones (presumably both the character and the series - the credits sure don't make a distinction), and now she has actually written an episode! But - please note that she did not do it *alone*: staff writer Pat Charles is also credited, which is perfectly normal since the bonus material on several US TV series DVD/Blu-ray box sets seems to indicate that most TV shows have a Writers' Room, where scripts are changed based on whatever decisions result from collective discussion about the script. Gone are the days when J. Michael Straczynski wrote over a season's worth of consecutive episodes all by himself. Or when Quentin Tarantino left his distinctive mark on an episode of ER.

Whatever the creative contributions behind this episode, the fact remains that it is a great episode. Almost at the end of the *fifth* season, and Bones shows no signs of fatigue. The show delivers yet another bizarre murder case and builds around it an episode that is not only creative (can't spoil the twists!) but also heartfelt and full of quality funny moments. CSIs, eat your hearts out. William Petersen was right when he stated his dislike of Bruckheimer & co stretching the show into a full-blown franchise. Bones shares the same kind of magic dynamic between its two lead characters as The X Files (no hyphen!) did in its glory days. Remember when Anderson and Duchovny started to take time off, let alone when they were replaced? Thanks to the special status of Brennan, she cannot be replaced, and though Booth could be replaced *in theory*, only a fool would try to continue this show without Deschanel and Boreanaz. Supporting characters are pretty good too, especially Sweets - that joke about his age never gets old. Ha! I made a meta-joke of it!

It's almost become unnecessary to review an episode since they all seem to be at least a 7/10, but this is an 8/10 thanks to character development and great guest stars Kate Vernon (of BSG) and Wade Williams (of the "great in season 1 and 2, $#it in season 3 and 4" Prison Break). Now if Brennan only would start to believe and make us viewers happy...
