Storyline

Brennan gets a glimpse into her own life when the body of a brilliant and career-driven surgeon is found in a rough neighborhood with multiple fractures in her skull and no indication as to how or why she was there. While the team investigates the case objectively, Brennan struggles to separate her own life from the victim's as she perceives many parallels between them the more she learns about the victim's past. Meanwhile, evidence found at the crime scene brings the team closer to solving the case, but it's Brennan's unique perspective that propels her to retrace the final events of the victim's life. With the reassurance of a new friend and Jeffersonian security guard, Micah Leggat, Brennan makes a discovery about herself and learns a lesson about taking chances. Written by Fox Publicity

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Actually, Micah, I was having a conversation with the victim... I ask her questions... and she answers.
Micah Leggat: Tell you what, Doc, don't be mentioning that to anybody else but me.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Why?
Micah Leggat: Cause, uh, they'll think you've gone nuts.

wonderful writing
11 December 2010 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I've never given 10/10--not on student papers, not on movie and book reviews, and definitely not on TV. I've never written a review here before. However, I disagree with Lor from NY so strongly, I must publish my argument.

I found the Bones episode The Doctor in the Photo fresh and exciting. After six seasons, most TV series become formula-ized, and I think in spite of Reich's fine lead and Hanson's terrific screen writing, Bones was no exception. IMDb lists no other writer on this episode, but Hanson's page doesn't credit him with S6E9--a peculiar discrepancy--but I say (to whomever did write it) Bravo!

The Doctor in the Photo gives all characters new ground--much needed-- and Brennan most of all. In a similar vein to the original Star Trek series, much as we all loved Spock, it's Amock Time (sp?) that we remember most: Nimoy had the opportunity to show emotion. So this hour does for Brennan--one can only hope that it's not an aberration, as it was for Spock, and that it indicates her growth as a human.

I also thank the writer for the fantastic new character of Micah--oh my I have already thought of six new plots involving him... many opportunities with a well-thought-out and beautifully played new guy.
