The Morning After Bones

Salt in the Wounds, Season 4, episode 17 (#75)

Brennan and Booth investigate the death of a 16-year-old pregnant girl who was found buried in a pile of street salt. During their investigation they uncover a high school "pregnancy pact" between the victim and some of her fellow volleyball players.

Because this week's murder victim was a young pregnant girl found in a city salt heap, Cam takes over the forensics of the case and overrules Bones. Cam has an idea on how to "rehydrate" the body, so she refuses to let Bones de-flesh the bones. Interesting dynamic going on between Cam and Bones.

There was a brand new intern this week and he was truly different from any of the other interns. Vaziri was a Musslium and a strong character of faith - he set a good example for everyone. Bones was frustrated because he had to stop and pray 5 times a day, but he was a nice counterpoint to Dr. Soroyan without being too annoying.

Booth and Bones were almost pushed to the background in this episode because more of the supporting cast was on stage. Dr. Sweets and Anglea went undercover to gather info on the suspected murderer, Cam showed more of her hands on skills instead of just being the boss, and Hodgins and Anglea ended up once again in the Egyptian Room - I'm not saying any more about this because it will be a true spoiler, but just let me say, I've waited for this episode all season. Oh, did I forget to tell you? Roxie broke up with Anglea!

Although Booth and Bones had to interview a girl's volleyball team about a pregnancy pact, we didn't have as much of the lively banter between the 2 main characters. I did think it was sweet of Booth to take the teenage "father" to task and try to set him on the right path and instead of ending the show with a personal exchange between Booth and Bones, we have Bones watching Booth from the sidewalk.

My favorite quote of the night came from the chiropractor (murder suspect). Bones tells him he is very informative to not be a "real" doctor and he counters her with, "You're not a real doctor either." The look on Bones' face was priceless.

All in all, another great episode!
