A drunk college student discovers the dead body of a Secret Service agent just before a presidential visit to the area. Booth is ready to hit the ground running and turns to Secret Service agent and former colleague Brandt Walker for information, but is surprised to learn the Secret Service has reservations about Booth's involvement in the case. The team uncovers some shocking evidence that heightens the seriousness of the case, causing Booth to step up for his country. Meanwhile, Brennan is out sick with the flu and former intern Dr. Colin Fisher returns to the Jeffersonian to run lead on the case, but Brennan refuses to be kept out of the loop. Also, Hodgins takes his life into his own hands and turns a corner after a potentially dangerous experiment.

Did You Know?


"Old Fogelsong Straight Rye Whiskey," Aubrey's favorite, makes another appearance at the end of the episode, as it did at the end of 11.2, The Brother in the Basement. The name Keith Fogelsong, writer and producer of the show, and his picture, can clearly be seen on the label. See more »


When Dr Fisher is explaining to Dr Saroyen why he has not given a finding to Brennan, he posits three reasons why he has not gotten in touch. When Dr Saroyen prefers one of the reasons, Dr Fisher says, "that's the better alternative." The comparative form of the adjective, better, is used when ranking two or more things. He should have used the superlative form, best, which is properly used for comparing three or more, in this case, alternatives. The pedantic Dr Fisher should have known this. See more »


Camille Saroyan: Have you shown this to Dr. Brennan?
Dr. Colin Fisher: I tried to call, but she didn't pick up. Which means she either relapsed into sickness, died, or is ignoring my calls
Camille Saroyan: Let's hope she's just ignoring your calls
Dr. Colin Fisher: Yes, I suppose that's the better alternative
