  • Justice official Caroline Julian appeals to the team members on leap year to return (Booth is on tour as an Afghan army trainer in Helmand province, Sweets is at a piano bar, Bones and Daisy at their Indonesian missing link search etc.). They are needed to prevent Cam, who spoke out concerning veteran problems, from being sacked as an 'incompetent' coroner. The case is a body presumed by the press to be the missing child Logan Bartlett, given custody to his alcoholic mother. After Bones admits her selfish desertion caused the Jeffersonian team to be disbanded and the apprentice program revoked, Wendell and the regulars regroup. They soon establish that the body can't be Logan as the body is a different ethnic grouping and died before Logan disappeared.
