Shortly after Booth is banned to the ice-hockey bench from beating up fire department Pete Carlson, who hits his 'fragile' teammate Wendell Bray, the bully's corpse turns up in a frozen lake. Booth is technically the first suspect, yet remains 'advising.' Bones' team officially works with agent Payton Perotta, who actually digs Booth. Sweets helps examine the key, social team dynamics.

Cute couple!
26 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

This was another great episode. Hockey is a little too violent for my taste, and I don't like seeing Booth beat up on people, but the story was great.

A hockey player Booth beats up after he beat up on two of Booth's teammates is found dead, probably killed around the same time as the fight. So Booth takes himself off the case and works with another agent to solve the case, because Bones will work with no one but Booth. It was an interesting story which led to an interesting conclusion.

There's a pretty romantic scene at the end where Booth and Brennan skate together on the ice. Brennan gets pretty mushy with Booth, who promises her he'll never let her fall "on or off the ice."

You can't help but to love them!
