The guilty party is identified quite early on but can we get a guilty verdict? Hodgins has compromised the enquiry by not revealing his relationship with a suspect - something that Booth, who reads people really well, soon finds out. This makes him very angry with Hodgins though they do make up over pie after Hodgins has resigned.
Dr Wyatt has ascertained in his therapy sessions with Booth (who feels embarassed about them) that the agent likes to be in control of events and his environment. This is probably why he and Brennan clash so much as she also is a control freak.
Once again an appearance by Caroline the Justice Department attorney. She really is great and her bawling out of all the members of the team before the verdict comes in is great. She lists all the mistakes they have made over the past few episodes. She gives them her official justice department verdict 'We win the case he (Hodgins) gets his job back, we lose. . . Booth shoots him'.
Booth has gone back to his jazzy socks, ties and suggestive belt buckle which Dr Wyatt (the excellent Stephen Fry) says is a modern cod piece bringing attention to the groin!
Only sour note is Brennan's infatuation with Sully who personally I think is a creep. And telling Booth that she slept with him is really a glaring example of her lack of people skills.Can't she see that Booth is hurt?
