After notoriously murdering "The Gravedigger," sniper-on-the-loose Jacob Broadsky strikes again. This time, his victim is a prior suspect who escaped the justice system. More determined than ever to catch Broadsky, Booth uses his own military training to beat the sniper at his own game. He vows to go to any lengths necessary to ensure that justice is served. In a heated and dramatic face-off, Booth has minutes to catch Broadsky before he hits an intended target, but Broadsky's skill and speed may prove to be a worthy adversary. Meanwhile, Angela's father visits the Jeffersonian and insists on naming his unborn grandchild. Written by Fox Publicity

Did You Know?


Hodgins says they'll name the child Michael Joseph if it's a boy or Katherine Temperance if it's a girl. Michael Peterson wrote this episode, and Joseph is Booth's middle name. Kathy Reichs is the inspiration behind Bones, and Temperance is Bones's first name. See more »


On Booth's computer it describes Paula Ashwaldt at 5'11" and 185 lbs, but the next scene shows Paula portrayed by Marisa Ramirez who is 5'6" and too slender to be 185 lbs. See more »


Angela's Dad: You're one fine *fine* woman.
Angela Montenegro: Okay, dad. What do you want?
Angela's Dad: Your first born child.
Angela Montenegro: [Chuckles] You know, to a lot of people, that would totally freak them out.
Angela's Dad: I heard his name in one bad get down booging down Blues number.
Angela Montenegro: Isn't that exactly how you found my name?
Angela's Dad: Yes and that's a fact!
Angela Montenegro: That name that I hated so much that I changed it as soon as I could.

Very Good Episode
12 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am surprised to see that this episode only has a 7.6 average rating...I thought it was very good. I like having a recurring "bad guy," especially one who brings up conflicting emotions in a character (in this case Booth.) I look forward to seeing where this sniper plot line is headed. Also, I loved the plot line with Angela's dad in this episode! It was quite funny, though Hodgins might need to look into tattoo removal sometime soon... I also liked the traditional B&B moment in the end of the episode. It definitely made me smile. Next week's episode looks fantastic, I can't wait :)

Additional comment- Where did Cam's haircut come from? Random. I had to take a double take since she was barely in this episode...
