Dixie ex-con Finn Abernathy, a genius, joins the team and impresses even Bones. He has to face hard questions about his past and morality but soon bonds with initially hostile Hodges. The case is that of a female eating competitions champion, whose corpse is being eaten from the inside by a live snake.

Everyone tries to make Bones understand she must take account of Booth's emotions as a proud father-to-be. Written by
