  • Explanation for the murders is far-fetched.

    Not an impressive episode, the writers are borrowing from the movies again for storylines.

    Sully is certainly bringing out a surprising exhibitionist side to Brennan we've never seen before, PDA has never been something Brennan's comfortable with but she seems to be learning.

    Oliver's role-playing is pretty disturbing, he's actually physically acting out the murders. There's a pretty short step from playing with dolls to using real people. Oliver, unfortunately, faints at the sight of blood so he's a dead end suspect.

    Not a terribly original storyline or very well executed. The strangers killing each other's problems has been done before on both movies and tv and done much better. After announcing the solution to the case, it was never really explained to my satisfaction. Killing someone isn't easy and here it's premeditated murder of a complete stranger, relying on a fragile trust in your partners. If this had been expanded on, it would have worked but pretty skimpy explanation.
