Storyline

A clumsy parachutist landing in a tree discovers a corpse covered in silk cocoon webs. It's identified as pseudo-scientific author and adventurer Sutton. He married Marina Tovah, whom he met on expedition in Chechenya, from where he brought Sapiens and Neanderthal bones found on a single site. Her excessively competitive attitude, marked by Sweets as an educational risk for Christine, hinders Dr. Clark Edison's examination, putting Hodgins in the middle. Booth looks for the Sutton's problems with violent in-laws, publisher and eccentric Texan expedition sponsor. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Sweets asked Mr. Wilson if he bought historical artifacts, he showed some pictures. One was the Willendorf Venus, a 11.1 cm tall (4.4 in) Venus figurine about 30,000 BCE. It was found in Willendorf, Austria and is now in the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the script several character refer to individual skeletons as "homo sapien", as if "homo sapiens" were a plural form. The characters are sufficiently well educated not to make that mistake. Even the IMDB submission checker recognises it. See more »

Don't watch if you expect a documentary...
3 November 2013 | by soliloqueSee all my reviews

I'm not agree with others reviews of this episode. Yes there's a lot of wrong science reference, but it's a television show. It's for entertainment. If you want real science reference, watch a documentary... More than 90% of the viewers of the show don't see the difference in the pronunciation of Neanderthals or how they live... it's not national geographic... it's Bones. Stop to listen if you can't do the difference between a good fiction show and an educational program...

For the episode itself.. it's not the best, but it,s a good one. Too much of the old murder not enough of the fresh one... And no enough clue about who's the murderer... I think the writer could do 2 episodes with the 2 story lines.... like the one where they have to find how the man died in the tragedy of 11-09... they don'T add a second murder ...
