A corpse, dragged in a tree by a chewing bobcat (lynx), is identified as Korean American Pak. His wife Emma believed he was o business-trip while he took a 'couples therapy course' in a Virginian Indian reservation with his mistress. Unable to work there officially, Booth takes Bones there as undercover couple Tony and Roxie. They discover the pseudo-Indian shaman isn't even the wrest fake, nor the only one with an alibi.

Did You Know?


Bones and Booth typically use the undercover names of Wanda and Buck, respectively. In this episode, however, they abandoned those familiar monikers in favor of "Tony" and "Roxy". Which they use in their first undercover episode the woman in the sand. See more »


When subject of racism is brought up, Brennan is wary to join the discussion and says that she, being Caucasian, is uncomfortable discussing such a topic when people like Angela or Vaziri are present. Being an anthropologist, she should be aware that Vaziri, being an Iranian (like his actor) is as much Caucasian as she is. Maybe even more, as Pej Vahdat who plays Vaziri shows characteristics of the J haplogroup, typical for inhabitants of Caucasus (Georgians, Armenians etc.). Even though race and ethnicity are seen differently in various regions, Brennan, of all people, would have been last to make such an error. See more »
