Storyline

When Booth brings Bones to the hospital to show FBI Deputy Director Sam Cullen some work on another case at the sickbed of his young daughter Amy, who has a terminal bone cancer which is rare, specially for her age, she quickly finds the cancer stems not from asbestos as usual, but from a bone graft after a bad fracture. The team establishes after a biopsy that the donor's anonymous file was clearly a fake, aged over 60 instead of 25 and already terminal: homicidal negligence or worse. The director won't order an investigation as technically the case is outside FBI jurisdiction. The supposedly supplying firm Biotech doesn't exist anymore since before Amy's case, so they trace the surgeon, doctor Ogden's other risk patients; Kelly Demarco is indeed dead, from the same bone disease transfer, soon over a dozen victims are found, from several states, making the case a serial killing. Ogden was fired from a private clinic. They try to trace the donor's identities to find the real organ ... Written by KGF Vissers

Help the girl
12 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that tugs at your heartstrings. While showing Booth's boss some facial reconstructions, Brennan questions him about his daughter's cancer (after several stern warnings from Booth NOT to). When she begins investigating, she discovers that the bone graft the girl had gotten was from an old man with cancer.

Booth and Bones and the rest of the gang put all their effort in trying to solve the case of where the illegal transplantation took place. B & B work well together on this case, and all get emotional. Angela is frustrated that she can't do anything to help the girl, with whom she's become attached.

One thing I really like about this show is how everyone just comes to care for each other. Even Booth has seemed to accept Brennan's co-workers and accept them as part of her life. They all have big hearts and want to do what's best to make the world a better place.
