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. Also, Joseph Michael are real names of 'Dusty' Hill, the other long-bearded member of ZZ Top band. Kathy Reichs is the inspiration behind Bones, and Temperance is Bones's first name. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Dr. Jack Hodgins: Now look, you can - you can attack me with dogs, okay? You can burn me with a branding iron. Hell, you can make me listen to a musical. I don't care! But we are not naming our child Staccato Mamba.
Angela's Dad: You know what your doing here, right?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You have a child named Staccato Mamba. We'll have Michael Joseph if it's a boy or Katherine Temperance if it's a girl.

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.
