Storyline

Eight pairs of dismembered feet wash ashore after a recent flood on the U.S.-Canada border, but things don't add up when seven pairs of feet are identified as research corpses from a nearby university body farm. When Canadian forensic podiatrist Dr. Douglas Filmore takes the remains back to Canada, he and Brennan form an alliance to match the pairs of feet and identify the victim, and a rare and expensive pair of sneakers leads the team to the victim's murderer. Meanwhile, Cam gets in hot water when she makes college plans for her daughter behind her back. Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

When Angela is hanging up pictures of the bodies to which the feet belong, the pictures of the corpses are all from previous episodes. The first three are from "A Boy in a Tree", "The Man in the Fallout Shelter", and "Two Bodies in the Lab", respectively. See more »

Goofs

In Filmore's session with Sweets, his paralyzed arm can be seen resting on the couch next to him at first. However, in later shots, it has moved to resting on the arm of the couch instead. This is impossible given his paralysis. See more »

They couldn't come with something better than...
11 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Bones" is an entertaining and smartly written TV series with an outstanding cast. I was, however, disappointed with Season 6, Episode 17. The series is usually very progressive in so many ways, but couldn't they have found a real drug to use for this episode? To pass marijuana off as some treacherous drug was laughable. Oxycodone would have been a more legitimate drug to vilify. There are more potentially harmful side effects from acetaminophen abuse than there is from marijuana use or abuse. I really enjoy this show and I will definitely keep watching it, but I was surprised that the writers chose something as trivial as marijuana. If they had to imply some moral judgment they could have just said that adults have the right to eat, drink, and smoke what they want as long as it doesn't affect the safety or well-being of others.
