Trivia

When Bones talks about the advantages of the artisan products, Sweets says that he started to appreciate the manual work when he worked in a disco store and made an inventory of the vinyl records, mentioning T-Rex's "20th Century Boy", which happens to be the song that Sweets and Bones dance at the end of the chapter.

Goofs

In "Mayhem on a Cross" (#4.21) we learn that Sweets, like Seeley Booth, was abused as a child until he was adopted at six years old; he still has whip scars on his back. (visual scars shown to the audience). During "The Method in the Madness" (#8.5), Sweets is living in Booth and Bones's house, after having taken a bath, he was walking upstairs, with his back CLEARLY visible, and not a scar to be seen.

Angela Montenegro: Okay. So, this program will search for wrinkles, freckles, other microscopic facial features on each piece, pick up the pattern and pair it with the corresponding piece.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Very Frankenstein-y.

Frustrating
12 May 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most frustrating episodes I've seen and usually I love Bones! As an armchair forensics expert (serious non-fiction collection) I had the murder weapon and therefore the killer from the start. Yet it did not occur to the team until the end of the episode. The only reason for this would be bad writing. I don't believe a professional of Brennan's calibre would take so long to even start to look in the right direction. Given her experience she would have seen similar injuries and it was just glaringly obvious. There was no mystery. This was more a story of incompetence and failure to see the evidence. They focused on one direction, the wrong one. Even when they discover an oddity and fail to question how it could have occurred. To make it worse, the very next episode Brennan is talking to Booth and tells him that the interns are making assumptions regarding the bones of the victim and tells them to look as if seeing them for the first time and see how the injuries connect. Exactly what the writers failed to do.
