Bones - Season 10, Episode 10 (Review)
The 200th in the 10th
Aubrey, another jewel thief, has information for Booth but is stabbed in the back, and Booth is framed for his murder. Meanwhile, Miss Julian, the owner of the Foxy Club, tells Brennan that Booth only stole jewels from people who made money from taking and selling Jewish internees' goods. Then he gave the money from the sale to his friends who had PTSD from the war.
Brennan and Booth figure out that the murderer is actually Saroyan (the maid). She stole jewels from Braga, ran off to Rio, met Aubrey there, and came back to LA. Aubrey figure out she wasn't really Braga, though, and so Saroyan killed Braga and put her in the safe, knowing that Booth would be there to take back the jewels. She also killed Aubrey. Brennan and Booth confront Saroyan, who takes Brennan with her to the airport to drop her into the ocean. Booth manages to get into the plane, there's a struggle. Saroyan tries to push Brennan off the plane; she falls out. Booth flies the plane. Brennan gets to head the division of forensic anthropology. We never fade back to the 1950s movie stars in the movie, which means the whole opening sequence was pointless.
- Oh jeez, the fake accents.
- Those dial phones looked like they're from the 60s. When is this supposed to be set? After 1945 and before 1969 is all I could figure.
- Forensic science wasn't invented in the 50s. It's much older, even the bone side (although it wasn't called forensic anthropology then).
- What is up with Edison's skin color? Is it a problem of makeup or lighting? (Or my TV?) Seriously, he was a weird color.
