Sam Nozik's beetles-eaten corpse in a Florida glade is identified from his acrylic eye. He worked in a Miami museum, from which a treasure map to a Spanish galleon was stolen. Booth grudgingly allows his superstitious former foreign army tour acquaintance Walter Sherman (and his team of two) to use his 'tracing gift' to find and retrieve the treasure. They do, after consulting bishop Edward Galano on period navigation, and find the corpse, but meanwhile the diver herself has been murdered too. Booth meanwhile comes to terms with his grudge against Walter as 'insensitive' MP. Written by KGF Vissers

Walter Sherman: Are you rich?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Hey! Where did that come from?
Walter Sherman: On a scale of 1 to 10 - she's an 11.
Angela Montenegro: Well, thank you, Mr. Sherman.
Walter Sherman: Yet, you're a 7. So if you're rich. It just explains the discrepancy.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Really.

Entertaining, but certainly not Bones
26 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree that this was not an episode of Bones. It felt like the Bones characters were the guests as the Finder cast and plots were clearly in focus. Another reviewer phrased it well by saying the episode was Booth-free and Bones-lite.

Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable hour of television. Though whoever was playing Walter's acting left something to be desired, I was intrigued by Walter and Ike's characters. It was also an entertaining plot. This did its job by getting me interested in the new series, especially since I am already such a big fan of Hanson's work.

That said, the glaring, somewhat unforgivable issue with this was that they should not have tried to pass this as an episode of Bones. It obviously wasn't. Viewers felt deceived as this so called Bones episode was quite obviously a poorly disguised, extended promo for the Finder. If viewers had gone into this with the proper mindset, I am certain the response would not have been so negative. This should have been the pilot for the Finder. It would have been a perfect way to segway Bones into the spin off series. Oh well.
