As Daisy (Carla Gallo) returns to the Jeffersonian intern rotation for the first time since breaking up with Sweets (John Francis Daley), Booth (David Boreanaz) and Bones (Emily Deschanel) investigate the murder of the death duola of a cancer victim who was buried with the young woman in a shallow grave. Sweets talks with the cancer victim’s husband (Larry Dorf), as Bones and Booth talk with the new age alternative burial director (Chuck‘s Vik Sahay) about the murder and burial of his former partner. With a focus on character and murder (rather than yet another quirky plotline) the show succeeds in finding a little of its old magic for the best show of the season so far.

“You were a gigolo for 30 bucks an hour.”

Bones - The Diamond in the RoughAnd the season of increasingly quirky plotlines continues. (Seriously, I’m waiting for an episode that involves a ventriloquist dummy at this point.) In the latest episode Bones (David Boreanaz) and Booth (David Boreanaz) go undercover on dance competition reality-TV show to investigate the murder of a professional ballroom dancer just days before her audition. Sweets (John Francis Daley) is surprised and amused to learn Booth put himself through college as a dance instructor, making him the perfect choice for the case.

Suspects in the case include a rival dancer (Sarah Scott) and her overbearing mother (Marta DuBois), the victim’s dance partner (Dmitry Chaplin) and the victim’s replacement (Leslie Augustine). Meanwhile Wendell (Michael Grant Terry) asks Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) for help with removing the minerals and gems fused to the bones of the victim during its decay in the quarry where it was found. The problem turns out to be tricky, but the King of the Lab finds the solution which allows Wendell to discover the dancer was slowly poisoned over the course of a year.

Bones has certainly reached a bit with some of its storylines this season which have included Sweets (John Francis Daley) temporarily moving in with Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz), and Bones’ obsessions with running for President of the United States and the philosophy of Phil Jackson. “Ghost in the Machine” follows that trend as the Jeffersonian team investigates a murder victim from the perspective of a  14 year-old boy’s remains which begins to haunt the team during the investigation that hits too close to home for many members of the team.
