The Shot In The Dark

Recap Image

Aired: 2/11/13


Brennan, Cam, and Hodgins examine a body on the platform in the Jeffersonian lab. Preliminary examination implies the man died from either jumping or being pushed of a bridge. Cam, after seeing some evidence of a heart attack, wants to examine more of the tissue. Seeing as how the body will be tied up during Cam's tests, Brennan decides to return home to put her Christine to bed.

At home Booth and Brennan feed Christine. Booth would like to take Christine out to a ball game but Brennan doesn't think that would be a good idea. Booth gets angry that Brennan wants to rationalize everything and can't simply live in the moment. Brennan thinks Booth is implying she is a bad mother and storms out, heading back to the lab.

Brennan works alone in the bone room, looking at the now clean bones. She is arguing with herself concerning her recent fight with Booth. Hal, a security guard who is surprised to see her working so late, interrupts her. He asks how long she is going to be working, and then inquires about the body. Brennan explains that further examination of the body revealed that he was in fact murdered first, and then thrown from a bridge to obscure that fact. Hal leaves Brennan to do her work. Brennan ignores phone calls from Booth and continues to power through her examination. Brennan puts on her magnification visor so she can better examine the bones. Shortly thereafter footsteps signal the arrival of who Brennan believes is Hal, but of course she can't tell because the magnification of the visor distorts her vision. She looks up to explain that she is too busy to socialize when she is shot, and falls to the ground.
