The flattened remains of a woman are found in a recycling plant, leading the team to a wedding planner, the woman's fiancee, and the owner of an online dating service. As the Squints work to solve the case, Bones and Booth are at odds when it appears that someone they know is cheating on a friend/colleague.
Meriel Mitsakis' body is found, mechanically crushed in a recycling plant. She had experimental plastic toe surgery, as final touch for a life long-planned perfect wedding with Mike. Tracing her wedding dress, Booth and Bones see Sweets' bossy girl, crazy Daisy, being fitted for one, presumably with her fiancé. Against Booth's and the others' advise, Bones ends up telling Lance. Meriel's multiple infidelity made her enemies, some without alibi. She was overrun by the car owned by her date (from the cellphone-proximity dating service) which Hodgins also uses.Written by
The victims name is Mariel which is also the fake name used by Muriel Heselhop in Muriel's Wedding. Both characters have always wanted to be brides. See more »
When visiting the bridal shop, the owner calls Anya a bridal consultant. But when Booth questions her, she describes doing alterations on the dress, which means that the owner should have referred to her as something along the lines of a "alterations consultant", or "seamstress". See more »
So this guy ran her down, then backed up and ran her over again? That's a bad date.

We watch Brennan learn a few things about love. As a woman's body is found in smashed cardboard, Booth and Brennan join the rest of the team to find out who did the deed. It leads Brennan on a quest to examine her thoughts on love. When she and Booth see Daisy at a bridal shop trying on a dress, they conclude she's cheating on her fiancé with Sweets.
After watching the show all the way through, it's interesting to go back and watch these to see how far Brennan has come. She is still not able to recognize love (though we know she's probably been in love with Booth for years). She fights with her beliefs and declares she would never marry.
At the end, Brennan has a moment with Booth where she admits to wanting that connection to another person. Booth assures her it would happen to her someday...
