When a subway train is thrown off the track by 60,000 gallons of flood water, a partially skeletonized body emerges out of the overflow. While Dr. Sweets, a passenger on the derailed train, copes with post traumatic stress, the rest of the team and intern Daisy Wick get to work on identifying the victim as Martin Aragon, a professional ghost writer caught up in a deadly love triangle. Meanwhile, Brennan releases her second book to great success, but has to accommodate a nosy reporter, and Sweets' near-death experience leads him to make a drastic decision.

Hodges, and all, discussing 'Quasar' safety slugs. In the real world Glaser Blue Safety Slugs disintegrate on impact and reputedly won't even penetrate a sheet of drywall, while the Silver Safety Slugs have slightly better penetration. The whole point of safety rounds is that they do not go through a body and hit something behind the target. See more
At the end of this episode, Bones says that the idea of soul mates originated with Plato. The story she refers to is from the Symposium, written by Plato. But the story of the round people with four arms and four legs is not told by Socrates (whom always holds Plato's theories in his writings), but by Aristophanes - a comedian playwright, who often made fun of Socrates in his plays. So Plato lets him tell this ridicules story (which has absolutely no counterpart in the Greek myths), to display Aristophanes' ignorance and lack of philosophy. See more

This is a Quasar Safety Slug. It was designed to disintegrate so it won't ricochet after it hits its target.
So it's a safe bullet?
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Not for the person it hits, just for anyone else in the room.
