Storyline

A human spinal column was deposited at night at the Lincoln monument with a message taunting to find the rest. Its vertebrates were reassembled, forming a code Hodgins gets obsessed with solving. The blood on it stems from 5 FBI agents, who donated it at the Red Cross. Sweets and his profile help Booth identify suspects, notably brilliant hacker Christopher Pelant and the omnipresent newspaper reporter Ezra Krane. Another murder follows and a highly original diversion crime. Bones meanwhile accepts to stay home and seriously considers Booth's ideas for a new home. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

When trying to solve the spine code, Hodgins has the sequence of bones displayed on bottom and on top of that is a sequence of letters that's implied to be what the bone sequence is supposed to translate to, but no explanation is given as to how he determined that sequence. Furthermore, when Angela suggests just looking at the numbers and ignoring the letters of of the spinal column, her program puts the numbers up on the screen in the correct order and then it spontaneously changes to a completely different number sequence with no rhyme or reason and neither of them question it. It isn't simply the numbers in reverse nor is it a simple letters to numbers transposition using the aforementioned sequence Hodgins had up. In other words, they should not have been able to arrive at the conclusion they did the way they did, and if the code actually contains the information from their conclusion at all then a bunch of steps were skipped.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Anything is possible, Mr. Bray - except for finding affordable housing in the District of Columbia.
