While there is no extant murder case, Hodgins helps Nigel prepare a cool mechanical demonstration comparing human and tyrannosaurus rex's fighting skills for a paleontology conference. Suddenly an FBI colleague alerts Booth that rogue sharpshooter Jacob 'Jake' Broadsky has killed again, this time fellow rifle art adept Matt Leishenger, whose gun and port access card Jake stole. As feared, the madman targets 'traitors', such as Booth and hence the whole Jeffersonian. Unsuspecting, Booth hands Nigel the cell-phone Jake takes fatal aim on. Now the team must bury one of their own, Booth protect them and perilously take out the murderer. Bones confesses the closeness under extreme danger brought them physically together.

Did You Know?


'Keep the streets empty for me'- by Fever Ray is the songs used as Broadsky sets up his weapon and prepares to fire. See more »


The term "coup de grace," the blow of mercy, or killing blow, is correctly pronounced "ku de gras" where the final consonant sound in "grace" is clearly enunciated so that the word rhymes with "floss." The way that Bones pronounces it, "ku de grah", in her reconstruction of the attack on Leishenger, though a common mispronunciation, would literally mean "blow of fat," like Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday. In French, a consonant is pronounced when followed by a vowel. See more »


Dr. Camille Saroyan: He meant to kill you.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm the one who gave Vincent the phone. Told him to pick it up.
Dr. Lance Sweets: You didn't know. I mean there's no use...
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I don't blame myself, Sweets. I blame the guy who pulled the trigger.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Okay.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You still have blood on your hands.
Angela Montenegro: ...Booth, she - she means literally.
