Amazing pace and performances save standard story
26 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After reading a terrible review by someone who is not a fan of the series, I felt compelled to write this review.

Another IMDb reviewer was upset that Dr. Brennan treats the girl at first like evidence. Looks like he has never seen the show at all, or else he'd know that is Bones' process.

The team needs to figure out why a deaf teen girl is covered in blood. while Bones does treat the girl badly in the beginning, they form a bond when she learns that like her, the deaf girl is a foster child.

The hunt is on to find out the truth, and during the hunt, Booth has a moment in which is questions if he is more like his abusive father then he would like to admit, while Angela and Hodgins have close calls with Angela going into labor.

The bond between the deaf girl and Bones works, and McKenzie Applegate gives a simply amazing performance that leads one to think she has a major film career ahead of her.

One of the better episode of the season, bar none!
