Booth has a hard timing countering his buddy, Agent Hayes Flynn, in charge of arresting Bones. Despite childish emotive hostility from Angela's side, Bones' forensic interim, Dr. Clark Edison, helps clear the case which looks likely to end his contract. Pelant, now a children's computer introduction instructor, can't resist hacking, but a last surprise up his sleeve since childhood changes everything once more. Written by

Hodgins identifies the traces of metal as tamahagane, and the team links it to the fact that Pelant's grandfather fought in the Pacific theatre during Second World War. The tamahagane is just a traditionally made steel though, and thus its composition can vary greatly between batches. Furthermore, average composition does not differ from average tool steel used throughout 20th century), so spectrometric identification of tamahagane is virtually impossible (Hodgins could have matched the trace to a sword only if he had been asked to check this particular weapon). Additionally, vast majority of swords carried by Japanese officers were mass-produced from stamped steel, as tamahagane smelting and processing is a time-consuming and thus expensive process.
