  • A very good episode..

    I've gotta say it.. it was nice to see an episode where the whole Booth and Bones thing isn't forced on the viewers, cause like I said in a previous review, it's getting really annoying the dancing around each other, quiet staring after a line. Not even teens do that anymore. The hesitation.. just get it over with..

    Anyways, the story was pretty simple. Amish kid left home for something I don't really remember the name, kinda to blow off some steem and getting to know a bit about the outside life before going back to his family and religion.

    At first, I thought it was gonna be the predictable family as suspects then the obvious twist to someone close. I was wrong.
    Just some random thief..
    Life is tragic sometimes...

    Sad episode. Very well written.
