Storyline

Brennan, intrigued by Phil Jackson's management style, pulls all her interns together as a team for a project worthy of the basketball coach's philosophy. She charges them with identifying remains that have been determined unidentifiable. For the team, however, it turns out that naming the bodies may be the easiest part of their task when one of them is from 9/11 and they must decide if he is a victim or perpetrator.

The Patriot in Purgatory.

Powerful, deep, moving, important. The importance of people. The importance of teamwork. The importance of science. The importance of doing what's right. Wow.

The Bones writing team touched all the bases on this one, and the cast treated it with more seriousness than they do the typical episode. I think I burst into tears 4 times. I think the acting was a bit more intense than the average Bones episode as well, and all the characters and actors shone.

I don't often watch Bones, but was recommended to see this and I'm so very glad I saw it. I hope this episode wins a boatload of awards.
