Storyline

An ex-FBI agent is crucified and torched on top of a hotel with a message inside his throat which re-opens a case from the 70s that sent an innocent man to prison. The case has ties that go deep inside the FBI, endangering Bones and her brother Russ, and risking Booth's career. Bones receives a visit from an old friend of their father Max Keenan, who is holding back a secret. Elsewhere Zack defends his dissertation to earn his doctorate, and worries he may not be hired at the institute as he is "cute, but a jury won't take you seriously". Written by mohka

This is the second episode regarding Brennan's family. Her brother returns to warn her that their lives are in danger. A body is found hung, burned, and gutted and the person responsible is surprising. Booth is there for Brennan all the way. He hugs her and protects her. At the end, he assures her that there is more than one kind of family as he looks into her eyes lovingly.

Why he is with Cam instead of Brennan is beyond me!!!!!

Zack also becomes a doctor. But the way he looks may keep him from getting a job. Personally, I like him better the way he was - the new him is a bit creepy...
