They are on a plane, and if they land somebody will get away with murder, lost in a land with billions of people where they may never be found! Yep, it seems Booth and Brennan can go nowhere without getting involved in murder - like when they find the woman in the oven. The first time I watched this episode, I was shocked at the person who was guilty.

The references about them being a couple are getting more and more frequent. They are accused of such twice, and still in deep denial, though we know they have been a couple for several years now...

I have a lot of favorite scenes in this episode. I will name two: 1. When Booth is making the arrest and trying to do so before the plane touches down. He does it quickly and adds '...because this is the United States of America!" Then everyone starts clapping. Very dramatic!

2. When Brennan's wearing the glasses, Booth is taken aback and gets very, very flirty with her. I thought he was going to kiss her!

Excellent episode!
