Booth asks Bones to fix his back again, but she ends up aggravating his condition. While Booth is sidelined, Bones works with Agent Perotta to solve the murder of a woman who was working at a Fantasy convention.
Children on treasure hunt find in a sewer the fast decomposing corpse of Bruce Kim's estranged wife Kendra. She was in town for Imagicon, a traveling SciFi & Fantasy convention, where she was to auction off the prized Excalibur Sword used in the first Fantasy movie Le Morte D'Artur. Horrible back-ache aggravated by Bones' amateur chiropractics keeps Booth bed-ridden. Sweets the 'walking polygraph', Hodges and constantly depressed Fisher enjoy helping agent Perotta and Bones investigate. Undercover parts prove particularly dangerous after toad blood allows Hodgings to trace the sword. Written by
