There was also an awesome spy case in the middle of the plumbing lesson. First, the gang had to figure out who their victims were, then why they were killed and finally who was responsible. They managed to sort through the tangled web to uncover a "diamond" dealer, a CIA analyst posing as a spy and a highly sort-after briefcase. That briefcase was supposed to contain millions of dollars of diamonds, but the dealer was re-routed through the diplomatic check point at the airport (by the CIA!). When they finally located the case (thanks to an awesome coded photograph that Angela discovered and decoded), there were no diamonds inside. Instead, there was a small white USB drive. Imagine what that little drive must contain if two people died trying to get it, those transporting it claimed it was diamonds and the CIA re-routed the courier through the diplomatic check point. Fox.com is taking guesses now on its contents if you'd like to take a stab at it.
Making its first appearance this season, here's this week's The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in its new, modified form:
THE GOOD: That plumbing scene at the end because it showed that Bones is just as invested as Booth.
THE BAD: The killer. I wasn't buying the Ukranian torturer-turned-murderer.
THE UGLY: It's so hard to pick just one this week. Cam's eye ball exam turned my stomach, the body in the trunk with the melting flesh was gross, but the murder in the beginning takes the cake this week. We don't usually see the actual murder on this show -- now I know why!
