The Jeffersonian team is traumatized by Sweets's fatal shooting, but determined to do the late Lance justice by catching the killer. Booth takes charge with nerdy fellow FBI agent James Aubrey. They find his killer, a military vet, on a nearby roof, apparently fatally shot himself, but actually sneakily knife-stabbed to death, expertly. Blackmail in high DC circles keeps blocking their legal moves, almost driving Booth to illegal vengeance, but Hodgins thinks of a zoological model to chart the chain of blackmail since Hoover. Thus the FBI agents find evidence to sustain the hypothetical family tree of secrets-sustained super-scoundrels. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When Aubrey, Booth, and Bones meet at The Founding Fathers restaurant, Aubrey is eating a huge meal consisting of a hamburger, onion rings, a sandwich, a salad, and side dishes. He tells Booth that he's starving after going through all the case files. When Bones arrives and sees his meal, she asks him if he hadn't eaten yet that day. This is the beginning of the running joke of Aubrey's obsession with food. He always has snacks with him, and in many of his scenes, he is either eating or talking about eating/being hungry.

It doesn't make a lot of sense that Arastoo wouldn't be at Sweet's funeral considering that he not only knew and worked with Sweets, but that he is also Cam's boyfriend and would be there with her. See more »


Special Agent Seeley Booth: You know what? I should've served the warrant. You know? Not Sweets.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: It's not your fault...
Special Agent Seeley Booth: It is my fault, Bones, okay? Look, I am the senior agent. Do you understand? It is my responsibility. That's why we're going to find out what happened, who's behind all of this. We're gonna do that for Sweets. We have to do that. All right? He was... family.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yes, he was
