Deanna's reconstructed letter reads: "Carlene, If your [sic] reading this, it means I finally got the courage to put it in the mail. I know you've been calling but I can't face you – It's not about the fight. I forgave you for that a long time ago. I know it's hard to hear about the end of the world all the time. People don't want to be reminded of it.
"I've finally admitted to myself that ther [sic] might be something worse than the end of the world – rejection … Carlene, I love you. I realize now that you make life worth living. You showed me that there are good things in this world and that it would be worth rebuilding after the world's collapse.
"It's cowardly to say it like this but I've never felt this way before. Maybe there's more to life than just survival. Deanna"
When Angela comes into the lab to say that Brennan is awake. Cam says that Brennan "felt it was cold when she was shot." There's no way Cam knows this. Angela didn't mention it, and since she's announcing Brennan's return to consciousness, Booth hasn't made a call to the lab, either.
Bones refers to "primitive" tribes in this episode, but anthropologists avoid using the term "primitive" because of its derogatory implications. One would think that she would know this as one of the leading members of the field.
Goof: At the beginning of the episode, Booth and Brennan's dark blue couch is on the right hand side of their living room. At the end of the episode, this couch is now on the left hand side, switching places with the beige couch.
Goof: Photos in Danish passports are black and white, not in color like Inger Johannsen's
The episode is dedicated to the memory of Brian L. Chambers (1955-2011). Brian was 56 and died at his home in Sherman Oaks, California on November 11 after a 27-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Brian managed post-production at 20th Century Fox Television for all Fox-produced TV shows including Bones.
Hugh Burnside the prime suspect in the murder, based on being a "lefty," demonstrates being left-handed when he catches an object tossed at him by Booth, yet he's wearing his watch on his left wrist. People tend to wear their watches on their non-dominant hand, usually so they can use it to manipulate the buttons on the watch. Being a lefty, he should have been wearing his watch on his right hand.
During Daisy's "autopsy" of the Prince Charmington Doll (about 23 minutes into the episode), she not only uses a "privacy towel" across the doll's groin, but a closeup reveals a tiny "toe-tag" placed on the doll's right foot.
Goof: At the end of the episode Bones has a toy gun which she fires several times. Just before the toy gun fight she has with Booth there are only four or five balls remaining in the gun. Yet she fires many more than five balls during the fight.
Goof: When Booth, Brennan and Hodgins are at the crime scene looking for evidence, Booth tries to take a picture of Brennan crying over the body. You can hear the camera phone taking photos, but you can clearly see (even at normal speed) that his home screen never changes into camera mode.
Trivia: Brennan and Booth go undercover in this episode as "Buck" and "Wanda," an engaged couple. These are the same undercover names they used in "Double Trouble in the Panhandle."
Angela and Hodgins named their son Michael Staccato Vincent Hodgins, although in "The Killer in the Crosshairs" Hodgins earned the right not to use any part of his father-in-law's dreamt name, "Staccato Mamba."
When Brennan recalls that Vincent's favorite song was "Da Lime in Da Coconut", Sweets's response is "Seriously? Because that's my jam." In the episode "The Body in the Bag," Sweets is shown working out to this song on his headphones. He also mentions in "The Passenger in the Oven" that he's going to sing it for karaoke.
When Brennan goes into Booth's room in the middle of the night the clock shows it is 4:47, this is the exact same time shown on the clock next to Booth's bed in the first scene of the 4th season finale, "The End in the Beginning." This is also the time that the clock in the victim's apartment continuously flashes in "The Beginning in the End."
Hodgins' Mini in the scene after he and Angela leave the hospital isn't displaying the required front license plate.
Goof: The titanium alloys usually used for orthopedic and dental implants is relatively pure, so Hodgins would not be able to find it using the magnetic gloves as titanium is not magnetic.
Just before Wally dives in the water, you can see that there is a face painted on his oxygen tank. The image is very similar to Hart Hanson, creator of the show.
During a conversation in the car, Brennan and Booth talk about Lee Coleman and Brennan does not know who he was. Booth says Bones doesn't have a TV. She says she does, but it is in the closet. This might give the impression that she is not watching TV at all (stated many times in previous episodes). It was well established earlier this season, however, in the Maggots in the Meathead that Bones watched a "documentary" or rather reality show about a subculture of "Guidos."
Goof: When Vincent is apologizing to Brennan, she walks away and is seen standing with her back to Vincent. In the next shot (with Brennan close-up) she is obviously facing Vincent.
Goof: Angela claims to have boosted the audio-recording above the Nyquist-frequency. On the one hand this is very unlikely since most digital-cameras use some sort of video and audio-compression, so frequencies a human can not hear would not have been recorded by the camera. On the other hand, the Nyquist-frequency is the resolution-limit of a frequency-based encoding of an audio-sample, which actually says, the sampling-frequency must be at least the double of the maximum frequency to be properly encoded (Shannon-theorem: f_s >= 2 * f_Nyquist). Therefore, even boosting the recording as Angela claims would not reveal any extra audio-information since it would simply not have been recorded.
