Mr. White and his team of government agents put the Jeffersonian Lab on lock down and demand that Brennan and her forensics team determine a cause of death for an unidentified, but highly classified set of remains. As the team gets to work, their findings lead them to suspect they are investigating one of the most famous presidential assassinations in history.

Awesome Episode!
24 September 2011 | by abbyrd88See all my reviews

This episode was awesome! It was very tense and nerve-wracking as the Jeffersonian team worked quickly to id bones from the 1960's under lock down by mysterious men in suits. Booth saves the day after breaking into the lab by shooting down the door which I thought was pretty cool. This episode also had different emotional moments between character's including a possible pregnancy. We end with both Brennan and Hodgins having done something very kind which Angela and Cam say they "will never forget" The episode did not have a conclusive ending which was a little annoying, but in retrospect that didn't really matter in terms of the episode. This episode concludes with everyone's two favorite couples both(B&B and Angela&Hodgins) arm in arm.
