A successful divorce lawyer's corpse is found by hobos, after being burnt. Finn Abernathy and the regulars have a hard time finding out the exact, complex cause of death, involving a steep fall and heavy machinery. His last case, the Carmichael couple, seems back together, but there's more than meets the eye. Meanwhile Sweets rightly points out Booth and Bones can't just pretend everything is okay now they're rejoined with their baby, with Bones's learned domestic skills and their emotions shifted all over the place. Written by KGF Vissers
