Goofs

Sweets suspects that Booth wants him to keep staying with him and Brennan because Booth wants to win the office pool on how long Sweets will live with them. Booth is a recovering compulsive gambler so his participation in a betting pool should sound alarm bells for the other characters but no one reacts to it at all. See more »

Frustrating
12 May 2014 | by 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.
