Right before Hodgins brings up the ice bullet, he quotes Spock (who paraphrased Sherlock Holmes): If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. See more »

Goofs

"Taser confetti" which is used to match the security guard's taser to one of the victims. Civilian Taser models do in fact discharge little round dots that have the Taser's serial number on them, allowing police to match them to a purchaser, and to avoid abuse. However, Law Enforcement "Professional" Taser models, like what a police officer or security guard would carry do not have this feature. See more »

As a long time big fan of Bones I am sad to say that this episode was fairly pathetic and did nothing for the credibility of the show.

As a long time big fan of Bones I am sad to say that this episode was fairly pathetic and did nothing for the credibility of the show. Booth has always been unwavering in his Catholic beliefs (great!) and Brennan a firm Atheist who does not believe in the supernatural (god for her)l. By her mother then telling her information in one of her near-death experiences that she could not possibly have known, it forever alters the dynamic of the show. Smacks of someone on the writing crew forcing their dogma on the viewers. Silly stuff, I'm left wondering if the "junior youth for Christ" writing team penned the script? Will the writer's next write out Booths faith as he questions God's existence? I highly doubt it.
