BONES “The Body in the Bounty” Review

Bones "The Body in the Bounty" Review

BONES “The Body in the Bounty” Season 6 Episode 4 – A skull, two hands and what’s left of a beard are found in a dumpster, belonging to a bounty hunter. The man was on the trail of a brutal murderer who skipped out on his bail so they assume he’s to blame. Their search leads them to another bounty hunter, a woman, and though Booth doesn’t like it, he lets her stay on the trail, wanting the killer caught and not caring by whom.

Meanwhile Bones has to deal with a new squintern, a man called The Science Dude who has a kid’s tv show and wants to do an episode from her lab. She’s hesitant so The Dude offers to help with their current case to prove himself as a real scientist. With the Dude’s help they discover that it was a combination of things that killed their victim. First he sustained a broken rib in a fight and then a secondary blow caused a piece of bone to pierce his heart. Turns out the victim and the woman bounty hunter were both after the same guy so she shot him with her bean bag gun to keep him away. When he died unexpectedly, she cut off his head and hands to hide the evidence. So in the end Booth and Bones end up catching two bad guys – the criminal on the run and the bounty hunter who was their murderer.

My favorite bits…

The guy saying “yum, it’s meat”.. before he pulled out the skull. Ew, so gross.

Bones saying that there are too many variables in life to completely rule out committing a murder. LOL.

Bones refusing to reveal her method of a perfect murder with Booth in case he shared it with his journalist girlfriend in a “post-coital haze”.

The way Bones said “nice to meet you, Dude.”

Cam freaking out when Dude said the hair wasn’t from the guy’s head, thinking it was from a place.. erm.. much lower.

This line: “When science gets icky it’s okay to get sicky” (okay yeah, he never got the “sicky” part out, but I got the gist).

Hodgins enthusiasm when meeting the Science Dude.

Booth saying the slogan to the science show was “ready, aim, fire” instead of “observe, analyze, deduce”. Guess that shows where his mind is usually at. LOL.

Tootie the cadaver dog. So cute!

Really wanting to see the cartoon with Captain Speedy explaining velocity.

Hodgins and Science Dude doing the experiment to see how the victim’s ribs were broken.

Cracking up at this bit –
Angela: “Then do it for your inner child.”
Bones: “If you’re referring to a fetus, I, unlike you, am not currently pregnant.”

Knowing that it might have been a bean bag gun as soon as Hodgins said the injury was caused by something with less velocity than a rubber bullet.

Bones asking if the suspects were carrying any potatoes when they got word of a couple at a hospital.

Booth asking if a bean bag gun and a potato gun could produce the same “fig newtons” per square inch. LOL.

Bones coming out as the “The Bone Lady” in her silly costume and leading all the kids in the “scientist’s oath”. OMG, too adorable.

Overall a pretty fun episode of Bones. David Alan Grier at The Science Dude was hilarious and I liked seeing him working with the team. There was lots of silliness but he also came up with a lot of valid ideas.

What did you think of the episode? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
