Storyline

Bones was to authenticate a rare Iron Age find, but as usual moans about it's 'urgency' when told to accompany Booth to Hollywood to investigate some coyote-nibbled human remains found around Los Angeles Airport. Upon arriving in LA they meet up with Special Agent Tricia Finn, a would be script-writer obsessed with the possible filming of Bones's book. Meanwhile back at the Jeffersonian, Dr. Goodman, steps away from his management role to return to his archaeologist roots to head up the authentication of the Iron Age man but terribly annoys Hodgins with his theatrical methods. Some details about the location of the find do not match the results from the skeleton analysis and causes Dr. Goodman to refuse to definitively authenticate the find. The LAX skull clearly belongs to a woman who had plastic surgery which keeps Angela from being able to reconstruct the victims features. The only lead, an illegal breast implant points them toward plastic surgeon Dr. Kostov who reported the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Dr. Jack Hodgins: You wanted to see me?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: You are a very difficult and stubborn man, Dr. Hodgins. Right now I'd like nothing more than to fire you. In my position very few people tell me the truth anymore. I find I enjoy it, in some perverse way.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: You're willing to admit you bailed on the authentication?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: Yes.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Seriously?
Dr. Daniel Goodman: But not for the reasons you think. True, we might be able to authenticate the skeleton by taking him apart, destroying him. If he's a fake that will be fine, nothing lost. But I think he's the real thing.

Skull-ish
24 January 2009 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

B&B head to La-La-Land to check out a corpse found on the beach. Some problems with the corpse's skull make it nigh unto impossible for Angela to reconstruct a face. Too much plastic surgery, as it turns out. The trail to the woman's murder leads to a call girl ring. While in LA, Brennan meets with people about turning her novel into a movie. She does a TV appearance with Penny Marshall, who is excited about the prospect of making a move out of Brennan's book. Back at the ranch. Hodgins clashes with Dr. Goodman over the origins of a corpse that may be 1,500 years old. Their back and forth leads to a surprising conclusion.
