Walter's robot is ruined while retrieving one of John Fogerty's beloved guitars. Model-behaved army brat Cooper Allison hires Sherman to find his missing father, military pilot lieutenant colonel Nick Allison. Walter accepts but warns there's no way back if the results displease. Sherman works out the plane's suspicious last course, speculating on contraband and accomplices likely to include the murderer, as Nick's corpse is found in the sabotaged wreck.

Did You Know?


There are several references to the "Fakahatchee Swamp" in this episode. Such a place does actually exist in Florida. It is located in the Fakahatchee Strand, a thread of forested swamp in Big Cypress, which is part of the Florida Everglades, on Florida State Road 29, and its formal name is "Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park."

John Fogerty's Manager: Walter, is it true? You found it?
Walter Sherman: Yeah, I always find what I'm looking for. It's a fact of nature, like, uh, the world turning and internet porn.

And The Finder Begins To Find
13 January 2012 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Every since i watched the bones episode i've been eager for Hart Hanson to do a show with the same characters and the same premise and when i heard the show was being made i created expectations.The Premiere of ''The Finder'' did not disappoint me, as i was into the show and really could not leave my seat.In fact i waited till 2am (I am from Portugal) to see it.

The plot revolves around a pilot's son who wants Walter to find the remains of his dead father.The Episode was great fun with everybody contributing for the ''find'' of the dead body.Walter with is usual casual way of being,Leo for keeping stable and Isabella for being the helpful Marshall connection.Although I have to say i was disappointed with Willa's Character as it adds nothing to the show yet but if she starts helping and stop hanging with her criminal family i am going to be happy.

Anyway I recommend this show to anyone who loved the Bones Episode where these characters appeared
