In this episode of Bones, called “The Recluse in the Recliner,” Booth’s new job seems to be in the bag until suddenly an old case aligns with a current murder and soon he’s no longer fighting for his career, he’s fighting for his life.
I am completely comfortable calling this the best episode of Bones I have ever seen. What made it so fantastic for me was the fact that, once the excitement got going, it never let up.
The episode began with Brennan running into a hospital in terror, following behind a gurney with a seriously wounded Booth. From there, we jumped back only two days and found out where it all began. Booth got a call from someone claiming to have information on the McNamaras and, being so close to taking that job in Germany, he was eager to clean up that case and call it a day.
