Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Angela describes the bullets as being 20mm and 25mm in diameter. Those size bullets would be fired from a machine gun or cannon, not a sniper's rifle. For comparison, some large caliber sniper's rifles fire .50 caliber rounds - about 12.7mm in diameter. See more »

Quotes

Jacob Broadsky: [to Booth] I'll tell you what. The day I wake up and there are no more bad people that need killing, you're the one I come to.

I'm a believer again!
18 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I felt like Bones jumped the shark back in Season 4, and I pretty much stopped watching entirely. This episode, however, has drawn me completely back in! This episode was a real turning point, in my opinion, with the perfect balance of character focus and dramatic plot. I am once again a huge BONES fan! Clearly there has been a huge improvement in the talent of the writers! If anyone else out there is like me, and became disengaged with the show, now is the time to return. I'd love to see more about the sniper (spin offs?), as it's quite reminiscent of the original James Bond short stories. The "B" plot was great, too, which I'm not often overly excited about.
