Episode Summary

EDIT

The body of a journalist found at a bio-waste facility turns out to be infected with a deadly virus. The urgency this adds to the team's investigation of the journalist's death is nothing compared to their desperation when someone at the Jeffersonian is infected, and the only way to devise a cure is to solve the murder.

  • Yay!!

    I'm just glad that Arastoo didn't die. He's my fave eye candy on the show ^___^.
  • A ring a ring of... bones'... The show is running in circle.

    Haven't we already had it? A couple of seasons back, with some variations? Searching for an antidote, Cam almost dying... The episode itself was not all that bad but second-hand. And - respect Doctor Brennan! That is the way to get the vaccine from a villain! :)
  • kimberlynoon5 - This is what the name of the song is:

    Artist: Sarah Blasko (Australian)

    Title: An Arrow



    Here is a video of the song on YouTube (copy and paste link): 11KslIm\



    I can see why you are interested in the song. Nicely crafted.



    As far a a review of the show, Great tense moments. Special kudos to Tamara Taylor, but everyone did excellent work (as always).
  • what was the name of that song?

    7.0
    It was sad and stressful. I like the more upbeat less personal episodes. Heart warming at the same time. On another note I loved that song that played towards the end during the scenery shots.
  • Seasick from episode

    1.0
    I'm watching Bones like always but the constantly moving camera work is making me seasick. The whole episode seems strange. I have never missed an episode of Bones but will have to stop watching if this is the new camera work and oddness.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Brennan: How is Mr. Vaziri?
      Jacobs: His vitals actually seem more stable. Clearly the herbs helped. I came to apologize.
      Brennan: No need. I understand that when someone is blindly subservient to institutional authority, their judgment is frequently compromised.
      Jacobs: That was an eloquent insult.
      Brennan: I thought so.

    • Jacobs: This woman died and began decomposing within 24 hours. That's too fast to treat other cases unless we can isolate and identify a specific virus.
      Brennan: And the more people who are infected, the greater the chance that it mutates and becomes airborne.
      Jacobs: Exactly. I think your expertise is being wasted on bones, Dr. Brennan.
      Brennan: Well, without my expertise, you wouldn't know as much as you do.

    • Angela: Mia encrypted everything. Her e-mails, documents all used a steganographic encryption. She was wicked smart.
      Cam: What just happened?
      Angela: That is me being smarter than her. Hey, I just intercepted an e-mail, probably spam. It shows me how the encryption process works.
      Cam: Because it has to create an opening to accept the e-mail.
      Angela: Exactly. You could be my lovely assistant.
      Cam: If I wasn't your boss.

    • Angela: (after Brennan matches the victim with one of the photos) So, why do we pay eight zillion dollars for the software when we have you?
      Brennan: Under normal circumstances, it allows me to take a longer lunch.
