Yes, reviewer, I totally agree with you that this was one of the best episodes of Bones yet. Along with the Patriot episode, there were real moments of pathos and beauty and grieving here, and while I watched it with my 13 year old son, I cried right along with Brennan and Angela and when Cyndi Lauper's character told the spirit of that boy that he would have had an amazing life that made a difference, I sobbed out loud for the waste of a life cut short. I really felt the camera/skull effect as they all looked right at viewers as if we were the soul of that poor kid, was perfectly done, very respectful and emotional. I loved how caring each of the Jeffersonian's team were, and how each of them came to care enough for the kid that they wanted to find out what happened. Angela was especially wonderful telling his spirit that she would give him a face and Brennan would give him a voice. Brilliant, just brilliant.

the story line was fine, But the prospective view sucked. i will stop the dvr and not watch Bones if they do that again. i haven't missed an episode yet...i have never stayed with tv series like this one. it intrigue's my thought, but not if that prospective view is done again. i fast forwarded through most of the show....

Usually I'm put off by the gore of this show and avoid it. This week I did watch and LOVED it. Touching and sweet. Very nice job by all.

Imagine dying and having your parents worried about you and staying by your body to make sure the girl that you had a crush on knows that you liked her even though she didn't like you back and had another boyfriend. Really really dumb.

Great episode and it brings to mind how often a person who is alive and wonders if a person who has passed does not hear what the living is saying or doing if they die in a rather strange way. I do. Creepy I know, but true.

Seriously? What episode did you people watch? This was an incredibly touching and moving episode that was both well done and have us an interesting new viewpoint. I can't believe so many people didn't like it. I could hardly pause it and teared up more than once. I say Well Done to the writers!

I too found it gimmicky. If they were indeed going for avant garde, they missed by a mile or more. I admit I'm not, and never have been, the biggest fan of this show. It is on our DVR list and the wife seems to enjoy it more than I. I find the entire cast of characters a bit grating and pretentious. I know that Temperance is supposed to be that way, but the rest seem to fit the bill as well. I prefer a good story to gimmicks and this episode was weak on story, then overshadowed by the clumsy, forced perspective. Lauper didn't help it any, at all.

Seeing it from the victims view was new, but the schickt is annoying. The fact it was an accidentmade sense, just a dunb kid. I also knew why the kid couldn't move on, the chick he loved. I rate this episode average but not great.

I had mixed feelings about this episode. I think they were trying to copy what " Ducky " Mallard on NCIS does when a corpse arrives in the morgue there.
