Episode cast overview:
Dr. Jack Hodgins (as TJ Thyne)
Micah Leggat
Mike Dworsky
Dr. Adit Gadh
Antony Truxton


Brennan gets a glimpse into her own life when the body of a brilliant and career-driven surgeon is found in a rough neighborhood with multiple fractures in her skull and no indication as to how or why she was there. While the team investigates the case objectively, Brennan struggles to separate her own life from the victim's as she perceives many parallels between them the more she learns about the victim's past. Meanwhile, evidence found at the crime scene brings the team closer to solving the case, but it's Brennan's unique perspective that propels her to retrace the final events of the victim's life. With the reassurance of a new friend and Jeffersonian security guard, Micah Leggat, Brennan makes a discovery about herself and learns a lesson about taking chances. Written by Fox Publicity

Fantastic Episode...
12 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the finest episodes of Bones ever, if not the best-ever.

I disagree with the other reviewer that the transformation of Brennan was too rapid. I feel this episode solidified in many ways how Brennan has been portrayed this season. For instance, she has been trying (in many painful, awkward ways) to loosen up and develop a sense of humor. We have seen her relating to Jersey Shore types and children-show hosts, really trying to stretch her personality. When a person is ripe for a melt-down or just receiving little hints from the universe, it happens.

It also helps to have a guide. Enter Micah. "When the student is ready,the teacher appears". The great Enrico Colantoni just might have a new semi-regular spot on this show! The scenes between him and Deschanel were fantastic.

This was one of those stand-alone episodes we will remember for a long time. Nearly perfect.

I could go about the philosophical and psychological aspects of this episode for hours, it was that beautifully written.
