Trivia

The German words Brennan is teaching to Booth are "rechts, links, oben, unter," which translate as right, left, over, under. However, they are not correctly pronounced. See more »

Goofs

Even though Booth is an FBI agent, he does not have legal immunity to the consequences of keeping blocks of high explosives, grenades, and automatic submachine guns in a cooler in his garage. Even at best, Booth would have to explain why an FBI agent with an illustrious career on the verge of a prestigious posting would have a cache of weapons and explosives in his house.

Additionally, the C4 blocks Booth uses are military equipment and marked as such. Being caught in possession of them would have meant an instant end to his career, and a long stint in federal prison. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I'd posit that the chipped teeth suggest that a tube or funnel was forced down the victim's throat.
Colin Fisher: To fill him up with alcohol. Bastard.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I beg your pardon?
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Fisher's just starting to realize that murderers are bad.

fantastic episode
10 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this season finished with a BOOM!!! great episode. I didn't really like the idea of the ghost killer until this episode it blew my mind. I was on the tip of my seat the entire show. I love the idea of a conspiracy. But I hated the idea of Booth being arrested at the end leaving a huge cliff hanger. this ending will keep me up at night trying to think of a theory on what will happen.I think bones will do anything in her power to get him out of this situation. I don't know how she will do it but I can't wait until the next season. ****** ******* ******* ****** ********* I loved this episode I hope their will be more like this in the future
