In an anachronistic dream, Booth is a cat-burglar/master jewel thief who donates the proceeds to fellow war veterans. Breaking in to rob socialite Eva, he finds her burnt corpse in the safe. Brennan is a pioneer female LAPD detective, whose father Max, the commissioner, fires her for maintaining Booth didn't murder Eva. The pair teams up to prove the authorities wrong and turn to paleontology professor Jack Hodgins and his assistant Clark Edison to invent the forensic use of archaeological methods. Dandy millionaire James Aubrey is murdered while informing them about Eve, reporter Wendell Bray keeps the case in the spotlight. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The opening close-ups of Booth and Bones in their cars are done using rear projection, emulating the way driving scenes were commonly filmed during the 1950s due to technical limitations. See more »


When the policeman is using a call box to call in a sighting of Booth, he acts like he's pulling out a phone, but there is no phone in his hand. See more »


Temperance Brennan: I guess once a thief, always a thief.
Seeley Booth: I'll take that as a compliment.

Where did this come from?
30 April 2015 | by ahsu-37053See all my reviews

I've been watching bones for a very very long time. Since it first came out. When this started playing on hulu I thought it was a different show! Probably the weirdest episode that has ever come from Bones. They tried so hard to emulate that time period, but failed heavily cause the actors while good aren't THAT good. Lol to hear Booth calling somebody "sport" haha that was rich. Aside from the bad acting the props and backgrounds were obviously fake. Previously it looked pretty convincing that they were actually drive (Booth and Bones) but in this episode it was painfully obvious they were sitting in stationary car with fans blowing to simulate air and a giant video background. This episode came out of nowhere. I don't see how it adds to the plot of the seasons at all. They should of just done a regular episode.
