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

The plot of the episode (a XVII century navigational chart, a sunken treasure ship, a Jesuit conspiracy, latitude and longitude codes and an unscrupulous treasure hunter) is loosely based on the novel "La Carta Esferica", by Spanish author Arturo Perez-Reverte. See more »


Leo Knox: As a peaceful man, I'm going to ask you - politely - please let my friend go.
Spider Biker: Or what? You're going to recite me a poem?
Leo Knox: [Leo attacks Spider Biker freeing Walter and knocks Spider Biker out] Peace goes into the making of a poet as flour goes into the making of bread.

I tried to cut them some slack, but...

I'd already read going in that The Finder was a pilot, so I wasn't expecting a proper Bones episode. Not happy about that, but I still hoped for an entertaining hour. I didn't get it, and I'm trying to be fair and not judge the first appearance of a new team the way I would an established show. Plenty of good shows had weak pilots or even weak first seasons; it takes time for the actors to ease their way into their roles, to develop their interactions with the rest of the cast, and for the writers to figure out what works and what doesn't. This wasn't year six of Bones; it's year one (or zero or minus one) of some new show.

With that said, I wanted my hour back. These are not people I want to spend any more time with, especially Geoff Stults, who isn't much of an actor. He had one good scene with Emily Deschanel, who acted him right out of the scene. Her performance was emotional and believable, neither of which he achieved.

Someone described an actor as filling a role the way concrete fills a hole. Yeah, that's Stults.
