Bones (2005–2017): Season 12, Episode 1 - The Final Chapter: The Hope in the Horror - full transcript

Brennan has been kidnapped by her old assistant Zack, so Booth and the rest of the team have to find her.

Previously on Bones...

We're not dealing
with an amateur psychopath.

This guy's a serial murderer.

Given the killer's M.O.,
it is very likely he is out there

looking for his next victim
as we speak.

You're not taking responsibility
for all this.

If we hadn't quit our jobs...

Allison Monroe still
would have been killed.

We know that this guy's
got this, like,

crazy genius IQ level

and he's manipulative
as they come.

Talk about a classroom
from hell.

These are your clothes, Bones.

The victim is meant to be you.

As I said on the phone,
I'm happy to do

whatever I can do
to be of assistance.

But that said, I can't breach
doctor-patient confidentiality.

I'd like you to return
to your dreams.

If you knew what I knew,
you'd be so proud.

Who is he? Who is he?
Who is he?

Breach confidentiality
if someone's in danger.


Get up here.
You understand me?

She's missing. He took her,
and he's gonna kill her.

I need your damn notes.

She said that your hands
were burnt,

like they'd been in some
kind of an explosion.

Dreams aren't always literal,

I mean, Wendell could
just be a symbol here.

A symbol for what?

For someone who used to work
at the lab.


Dr. Brennan.

It is good to see you again.

You and I...

We have so much to talk about.


what have you done?

I need to leave.
I need to find Booth.

Dr. Brennan.
I need Booth.

Please do not
attempt to stand.

The sedative
I administered

is still very much
in your system.

I don't understand
what is happening.

You've been asleep
for almost two hours.

Zack, listen to me.

Let me go.

If you don't,
Booth will find you,

and when he does...

I'd prefer you not
talk about him.

Zack, what has
happened to you?

What happened
to your head?

Oh... that.

I forgot you haven't come
to see me in some time.


I want to help.

You and I can figure
this out together.

Dr. Brennan,
I know you're used to me

being your assistant,

always telling me
what to do.

Today, the shoe is on
the other foot.

Come on, come on.

Hey. Booth's on his
way back from the asylum,

They have no clue
how Zack escaped.

What have you got?

So this is security footage

from inside
the Jeffersonian.

Now, because we were
on the phone with Brennan

when it happened,

we do know the exact
time she was taken.

The problem is...

Zack remotely
turned off

some of the cameras.

It was only
for a short interval,

but it... it was enough
to give him a...

a very clear path.

Wait, what about footage of them

exiting the building?

That's what doesn't
make any sense.

I haven't found

any exterior cameras

that have been turned off.

Which means they can
still be somewhere

within the Jeffersonian.


I got Dr. Brennan's
field bag.

Just dump it out
for me, okay?

Come on, Wendell,
hurry up.

What are we
looking for, man?

I'll tell you when I see it.

Come on, where is it?

Got it.
Hand lotion?

Not just any hand lotion.

This stuff has got
glycerin in it.

What is that thing?

It's an explosive
trace detector.

Now, I am reprogramming it.

Normally, you would actually
screen the glycerin out

so you don't end up
with a false positive,

but I am actually changing it

to screen the glycerin in.

Then we can track her down.

It's like a
digital bloodhound.

Yeah, you got it.

Bingo. Okay.

Let's take this
hound for a walk.

Okay, so Dr. Brennan
was in here,

examining the remains
when Zack took her.

All right then.

Let's see what we can smell.

you know what I mean.

Get me to that phone.



Take me to the table.


Slow, slow, slow.

Come on, Dr. B, where are you?

W-w-wait, wait, wait.

You did it, man.

Call Booth right now.

It's faint, but I got her.

Booth, this is as far as
I could track her and even here

the glycerin is
almost nonexistent.

Look, where's this elevator go?

Basement and five floors up.

I say we start at the top,
work our way down.

Or maybe not.
He's in the basement.

How do you know?

It's Zack.
Trust me.

Okay? You understand?

It's the only place
he would take her.

Zack, you don't
have to do this.

Listen to me.

No, I'm done listening.

Put it down now!
Zack, put the syringe down now.

I'm gonna count to three.

Agent Booth.

I need a moment
so I can talk.


No, Booth!

Bones, what the hell
are you doing?

Get out of the way.
No, Booth,

you don't understand.
The syringe,

he wasn't going
to use it on me.

What the hell
are you talking about?

Dr. Brennan is telling
the truth.

My plan was to inject myself.

This is sodium thiopental.

Truth serum.

I need Dr. Brennan
to believe me.

I didn't kill anyone.

Dr. Saroyan, hey.

You sure you want
to be out here?

Yeah, I...

Dr. Brennan's safe, so...

I just...

I needed to see him
with my own eyes.

It's hard to believe, isn't it?

I mean, I never knew Zack,

not like you guys, but...

still, I don't know,
just... looking at him...

You would think he was
as harmless as a child.

That's what we all
thought the last time.

So what do you think
made him crack?

I mean, that lobbyist he killed,
that was like ten years ago.

Just get your stuff, I'm gonna
take you to go see the doctor.

No... what? No, I'm fine.
Nothing is wrong with me.

What are you talking
about, "fine"?

Nothing's wrong with you?

You just said
maybe Zack didn't do it.

I need to go home
to see Christine and...

the kids are fine.

Do you understand me?
They are safe.

I need to see them.

Trust me,
you need to just...

calm down, all right?

Just calm down.

All right?

Look, Zack...
did this.

Do you understand me?
You had nightmares

about a guy with burned hands.

I am well aware of that,

I had nightmares

because of evidence that

insinuated Zack.

Innocent people don't escape
from sanitariums

to proclaim their innocence!

You're right.

What Zack did is
completely illogical,

I know, but I still...
I need to...

No! No, this
is not right.

There is no other way
of looking at this.

Zack is a convicted murderer.

He tried to kidnap you.

And he wanted to kill you.

Then why didn't he?

He could have killed
me at any time,

but he didn't.

I need to talk to him.
I need to know...

Bones, stop talking.

All right, just...

stop talking.
I love you, too.


Stop talking.

Hey, Hodgins, slow down, man.
Talk to me.

I can see that you're upset.

I'm telling you,
if I had been

in that basement, this needle
here wouldn't be in evidence.

Nope. I would've shoved
it down his throat,

made sure it punctured every one
of his organs on the way down.

That's... creative.

Oh, damn it.

Oh, damn it.

Damn it!
Oh, Hodgins, hey, hey, hey.

It's all right.
It's okay.

It's just another spasm.
I got you. I got you.

I got you.

You're okay.


Trust me, this pain is nothing

compared to how
I'm feeling here, man.

Hang on.

Here. Here, here, here.

I'm good,
I'm good, I'm good.

No, no, just take on of these

for the pain, all right?

You really think Zack
was gonna kill her,

don't you?

No doubt whatsoever.

But what about
the sodium thiopental?

Truth serum?

Come on, Wendell,
don't even go there.

Hey, I'm-I'm sure
you're right, all right,

but you don't think it's...
at least a possibility

that he's telling the truth?

I mean, maybe it
was someone else.

I mean, we-we know this killer
is manipulative.

Stop it.
Listen to me.

Zack is guilty, end of story.

Dr. Brennan, oh, wow,
it's so good to see you.

Oh, okay.
Thank you.

So much hugging.

Perhaps I should be
kidnapped more often.


How are the kids?
They're fine.

And clueless.

My dad is taking
such good care of them,

they had no idea I was missing,
which is a good thing.

Right, uh, well, Booth,
Dr. Brennan, this is

Dr. Roshan.
He is the head

of the facility where Zack
was institutionalized.

Dr. Roshan, thank you
so much for being here.

Do you have any idea

how Zack managed to escape?

Uh, not yet.

as you are aware,

Zack is a very

young man.

Right. And the box here.

Right? I'm assuming
that this is Zack Addy's

personal effects?
Yes, I...

thought you might want
to see these.

The photographs,

some press clippings...

As you can see, he was very fond
of you, Dr. Brennan.

I am relieved to see
that you were not harmed.

three other victims

weren't so lucky, Doctor.

Allison Monroe,

Douglas Burkhart

and Melissa Goodman.
Each of them

were killed six months apart.


I'm sorry,
are you implying that Zack

was leaving our facility at will
for over a year?


We are not
implying anything.

These are stills from
a surveillance camera

half a block away
from your facility.

That one is from six months ago.


To tell the truth,
we don't know how long

he's been coming and going.

Dr. Roshan,
I have to ask.

I noticed that
Zack had a scar

across his forehead, almost
like he'd had a surgery,

like a lobotomy.

No. Zack's scar didn't occur
because of any procedure.

then what happened to him?

Zack was receiving

regular visits
from an associate of yours,

a psychologist named Dr. Sweets.

They... they were seeing
each other almost every week.

But, then,
when Dr. Sweets

was murdered,
Zack had trouble processing.

He threw himself
into a fit of rage

and that's when he self-injured.

Since then,
Zack has been different.

Withdrawn, I think,
is the...

best way to describe him.

Listen, Booth,
why don't you, uh...

why don't you let me have
the first crack at him?


I'm the one Zack wanted to see;
I should be present.

No. Aubrey's right.

Zack wants you,
which is the last thing

that we should give him.

Dr. Addy, hello. My name is
Special Agent James Aubrey.

As you can imagine,

I've got quite a few questions
to ask you.

No. I would prefer
to only speak with Dr. Brennan.

Communicating with someone
of lesser intellect

is difficult for me.

No offense taken.

Now, Zack, you, uh,
you told Dr. Brennan

that you were innocent.

I am innocent.

Look, ask him if he's
innocent of the kidnapping.


you're denying that you
kidnapped Dr. Brennan?

The escape and kidnapping
were necessary evils.

I knew her life was in danger.

So why didn't you just
call her up and tell her?

I am not well versed
in social etiquette.

But I believe, when
dealing with accusations

of serial murder,
it is best to meet face to face.

Look, ask him how he even knows
about the killer.

There's nothing in the press.

Zack, why don't you
help me out here.

If you're not responsible,
as you say,

then how do you even know
about this supposed killer?

Because I've been reading
Dr. Brennan's e-mails.

Given the evidence,
it was only

a matter of time until I was
considered the prime suspect.

Wait. You've been reading
Dr. Brennan's e-mail? How?

I hope you appreciate
I'm being forthright.

Honesty, I'm told,
is the best policy.

from the look on your face,

I'm not sure
that axiom holds true.

For the past
several years,

I've been allowing myself
free time at night

outside the sanitarium.

You've been breaking out?

And then "breaking"
into the local library in order

to read and also to access
their computers

so I can keep up-to-date with
all my friends and colleagues.

Dr. Brennan, Hodgins, Angela,

and Dr. Saroyan.

Zack, you've been spying
on all of their e-mail accounts?

I do not care
for the word "spy."

But, yes,
I've been keeping myself abreast

of what they've been doing

on a day-to-day basis.

Let me ask you, you mentioned
everyone at the Jeffersonian.

What about Agent Booth?

You been spying on him, too?

Agent Booth and I
are not friends.

So, how did you feel

about Agent Booth
marrying Dr. Brennan

and then having two children
with her?

Hey. Is this the computer
from the library?

The one Zack was using
to check in on us?

Yeah. Look at this.

So, this is his account.

Check out the subfolders.

Unbelievable. So he had access
to all my e-mails?


I have to say though,
he did show

some sense of discretion.

He didn't open any of
the photo attachments

between Hodgins and me.

Not that you and Arastoo
do that. Or... do you?

We do not.

Not over e-mail.

what is that untitled folder?

Let me check it out.

Dr. Alexander Bancroft.

Why does that name
sound so familiar?

Oh, my God.

Um... this has to be a mistake.

So, this puppet show from hell

is everything probative we found
in Graham Reynolds' basement.

As you can see, there's
blood trace on the drill bit

and spindle as well.
Dr. Saroyan's in the process

of matching the blood
to each of the victims.

Also, over here,
I've got sodium sulfide,

calcium hydrosulfide,
and dimethylamine--

everything you need
to tan a body.

What about osteological evidence?
In the basement,

we found some bone shards on
the floor, most likely cast off

when the killer drilled
holes into his victims.

I'm still in the process
of matching the shards

to each of them.
Hey. Sorry to interrupt.

- Can I talk to you for a minute?
- All right, yeah.

No, say what you got to say. I
just... I'm gonna keep working.

'Cause I'm not gonna stop until
we get what we need to convict.

On the computer Zack was using,

I... found that

he was not only reading
our e-mails but that

he also set up a dummy account

under another name.

Dr. Alexander Bancroft.

I'm sorry,

I don't understand.

Who is Dr. Bancroft?

Wait, this is who
you were telling me about.

Bancroft is a
world-renowned neurosurgeon.

He's the one
that your physical therapist

has been consulting with.

He's the one
who developed the protocol

that restored feeling
in Hodgins' legs.

I'm not following. What does
this have to do with Zack?

Dr. Bancroft never actually
spoke to Hodgins' therapist.

It was Zack,

e-mailing and calling
on a burner cell.

Zack is the one
who developed the protocol

that you've been following.

Zack is the one
who's going to make it

so that Hodgins
can walk.

Look, Aubrey, okay, I'm not
saying that Zack didn't do it.

All I'm saying is what he did
for Hodgins is nice.

That's all. Yeah.

Nice? Nice? I mean, you
realize we're talking

about the person who
kidnapped your wife here.

I get all that, okay?

But... he's trying
to help Hodgins walk.

I mean, that's nice
when you think about it.

Doesn't make him innocent.
I mean, I'm sure Norman Bates

was nice, at least when
it came to his mother.

Besides, I mean, look at our
board. Look at the killer's M.O.

First, he kills his victims
as humanely as possible,

takes care of them
for six months,

and then brutally
kills them again.

I get it, Aubrey.

You know what, it-it fits.

I mean, and Zack here, you know?

Being kind to Hodgins and...

You're not convinced.
I just want

some outside help on this.
Call Behavioral Analysis.

See if there's
a profiler available.

Um, I think maybe I could
be of some help with that.

Karen, what are you doing here?
I thought you got transferred

to Kansas City.

I was transferred. But then
I left, and now I'm back.

As is self-evident.


anything new going on?

Dr. Brennan, I wanted to let you
know that I've identified

the bone shards we found
in the puppeteer's basement.

Did all the fragments belong
to our previous victims?

Yes. Based on the texture
and color,

I was able to ascribe
the majority of the fragments

to Melissa Goodman,
the most recent victim.

What about any evidence
that could possibly exonerate

or... convict Dr. Addy?


I didn't find any such evidence.

Nor was I looking for any.
You always taught me

to examine the evidence
without any preconceived bias.

And unless you say otherwise,

that is what
I'm gonna continue to do.

Mr. Bray, i-if you would,

I could use
an extra set of eyes.

While performing a
histological examination

on this chipped fragment

of a central incisor,
I found something of note.

This piece of tooth
shows tetracycline banding.

Evidence that the victim took
antibiotics before age eight.


but I've already examined all
three victims, and this banding

wasn't present
in any of their teeth.

I concur.

Which means this fragment
came from a fourth victim.

Okay. No. But here...

You know what?

No. Oh.

If it was latent, it could be...

I'm just gonna orange Post-it.

Move this
guy here

and here. And then I can...
Yellow. Uh,


I got it. I got it.

Wow. What'd you get?

I got it.

Dissociative identity disorder.

Multiple personalities?

Think about it. Think about the
way the bodies were disposed of.

I mean,
they weren't hidden at all.

He wants us to find them.

It would suggest
he wants

to get caught.

Yes, but then he keeps killing.

Two personalities in conflict.
Wait a second,

does Zack fit that profile?
Well, yes.

Uh, well, and-and no.

Although Dr. Addy's
never been diagnosed with

dissociative identity disorder,
it could have been brought on

by the trauma to his head.

But wouldn't he be aware

of this other personality?

Not necessarily.

Memory loss is a symptom

of this condition.
So one personality

isn't cognizant
of what the other is doing.

What about Dr. Faulk?
You still think

he could've done it?
I think that

he is an excellent suspect.

Think about it.

His parents were murdered
when he was

seven years old.
That's exactly the kind

of trauma
that brings on D.I.D. Plus,

he's a psychiatrist, and, in
general, they tend to be like...

You know what I mean?

Yeah, we're aware of the type.

Get an agent on Faulk
right away, all right?

I want to know where he's at at
all times. Get someone outside

of his house.
I don't care where they are.

Find him.
Hello. Booth.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
Cam, slow down.

What is it?

Slow down.

What do you mean Bones is gone?

Whoa. This is even
creepier than I imagined.

Oh, sorry.
Uh, this is Booth on the phone.

Why don't you take the wall
by the windows?


Hello, Booth?

Bones, what the hell
is going on? Where are you?

I'm in
Graham Reynolds' basement.

No, no, no. You can't do that.

You don't... you don't
just leave without telling me

or Cam.

I wasn't aware
I needed permission.

You don't. Except, of course,
the day after you get kidnapped.

I'm coming to get you.

No, Booth, I assure you,
we are safe.

In all likelihood,
Zack is the responsible party,

and he is in custody.

Bones, listen to me.
Get out of there right now.

Booth, I promise
I'm fine.

Nothing is going
to happen.

I'm at a crime scene.
It's secure.

Dr. Brennan.

Hold on. No, Booth,
you don't understand.

I found a tooth fragment
that doesn't belong

to any of the victims.
What are you talking about?

There's a fourth victim?

Listen, Bones,
do me a favor.

Just get out
of the basement right now.

Will you listen
to me for once?

Booth, I can't hear you.
You're breaking up.

Hold on. Hold on!

Geez, Bones...

Are you okay, Wendell?

Wait, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What's going on?


Hey, sorry, Dr. B.

I slipped trying
to open this door.

- Booth?
- Are you okay?

Yes, we're fine.
Mr. Bray found something

It's some kind of hidden door.

What do you mean, a door?
What's inside?

Hold on.

Bones, are you there?


Booth, it's
the other victim.

Half of the body is missing.

The rounded
supraorbital margins suggest

the victim was male.

Also based on the
partially fused

epiphyseal unions
of the humeri,

it appears he was
still growing.

The victim was
a teenager?

That's not at all
consistent with the others.

And he's missing
the entire

lower half of his body.

I'm just saying,

in case you missed
that... little detail.

The good news is

there's just enough
tissue around the hair

that I should be able
to run a tox screen.

Dr. Brennan, take a look
at this exfoliation

of the cortical bone.

It suggests
the victim was killed,

I'd say, between ten
and 20 years ago.

So that means
this victim

predates the others.

And that would mean
Zack was a teenager as well

at time of death.

Okay, I'll start
the facial reconstruction

and see if I can find
anything in missing persons.

What about cause
of death?

readily apparent,

but look at the
inferior margin

of the L4 vertebra.

The striae suggests that it was
cut by some kind of saw.

Dr. Hodgins, please swab
for particulate evidence.

Dr. Hodgins?

You're only now noticing
he's not here, aren't you?

We couldn't stop him
from going.

Zack, I've brought you
some visitors.


This is unexpected.

And Miss Delfs.

It is a pleasure
to see you again.

Oh, I'm...

flattered that
you remember.

It was just so
many years ago.

But, um, I was working
on my dissertation,

and Zack was nice
enough to grant me

a series of interviews.

Miss Delfs was just
one of many

who came to see me.

It is odd,

but being perceived
as a murderous cannibal

does have some advantages.

Okay, Dr. Lecter,

why don't you
take a seat?


Dr. Hodgins here has got
some questions for you.

Zack, look at me.

Angela found the e-mails
that you sent.

The ones in Dr. Bancroft's name.

I see.

You are right
to be angry with me.

No, Zack, what you did...

it was genius...
it worked.

I have feeling
again in my legs.

Hodgins, you should not
be thanking me.

Why not?

Is it because
you feel guilt

for other things
that you've done?

No, the reason Dr. Hodgins
should not be thanking me

is because ultimately
the treatment is

unlikely to work.

But that's what I'm
telling you.

It worked.
I have feeling.

No, what you have is pain from
compromised nervous activity

in the sacral plexus.

The truth is you
only have a slim chance,

less than one percent,
that you will regain mobility.

So you don't think
that it's gonna work?

I have been told,

although it has not
been proven scientifically,

that hope can sometimes
have the power to heal.

Hope is what I was
trying to give you.

But my fear is...

all I've brought you
is pain.

Dr. Faulk?


I don't think he's here.
You think?

Aubrey, it's Booth.

I want you to put an
APB out on Dr. Faulk.

Agent Booth...

Dr. Brennan, it's good
to see you again.

I'm glad to see
you're unharmed.

Your husband, when...
when last we spoke,

when he assaulted me,

insisted that you were
in harm's way.

We just need to ask you
a few questions,

that's all, Dr. Faulk.

Starting with
your relationship

with Dr. Zack Addy.

You knew him,
didn't you?

Dr. Brennan,
are you aware that

the average murderer
has an IQ of less than 90?

To talk with one
whose IQ is double that

is not an opportunity
you let pass by.

So you don't think
that it's strange

that you failed to mention
that you knew Dr. Addy?


No, what is strange is that
Dr. Brennan never equated Zack

with the man
in her nightmare.

Which could either
be denial,

or you think Dr. Addy
is innocent.

Officers, thank you
very much for coming.

Please escort Agent Booth
and Dr. Brennan

out of the building.

I called them
as soon as you arrived.

I have a restraining order
against Agent Booth

for pulling his gun on me.



We're not done here,

Agent Booth, Dr. Brennan,
a word of advice.

The person you're searching for

has a pathological
need for control.

He, or she, will want

to get as close
to you as possible, to...

manipulate you.

Steer your investigation.

Be careful.

Come on, Booth.

Let's go.

Hey, you got a sec?

Yeah, what is it?

Karen has an idea

that she'd like to run by you.

Ooh, thank you,
Agent Aubrey,

for your enthusiasm--
you're a heck of a salesman.

Yeah, what is it, Delfs?

Just spit it out, will ya?

I was just wondering
if you were open

to having another
forensic anthropologist

consult on the case.

Booth, she wants to give Zack
access to the case file.

No. No way.
Get out, both of you.

Okay, just-just think
about it for a minute.

Out. Done. No. No. No.

Booth, just think about
this. Hear me out.

There are two ways
this can go.

Let's say Zack
is innocent.

He takes a look,
doesn't find anything,

or, better, he looks and finds
something that we missed.

So you think he's innocent?

Oh, no; he totally did it,

which is why I want to confront
him with what he's done,

because then, maybe...

His other personality
will present itself.

Look, I know
it's a long shot,

but just... let
me talk to Zack.

Okay? Let me be the one to
present him with the case file.

Do it.

Tell Zack the plan,
will you?


Do me a favor, will you?
Contact the field office

in Kansas City, all right?

I want you to talk
to Delfs' supervisor.

I want to find out
why she left.

Here. Let me show
you what I found.

After repositioning
the vertebrae,

I saw that there were lateral
compression fractures

along the L2, 3, and 4,

with deterioration
of the articular facets.

So he had severe scoliosis.

Only I'm not seeing
any evidence of bone grafting,

which means the poor guy didn't
have any corrective surgery.

And what about the severing
in the spine?

Any idea what kind of saw
was used?

Within the wound,
I found traces

of martensitic
stainless steel.

That's surgical steel.

Which means that

his spine was most likely
severed with a surgical saw.

That fits with my findings
as well.

In the tissue, I found propofol,

which suggests he died
on the operating table.

Hey. I finished
my facial reconstruction.

There were no matches
in missing persons

or in any other database.

So we've got nothing.

I wanted to see how Zack
was doing.

Uh, it's been a couple of hours.

He's been poring through
the evidence like a machine.

- So no admission of guilt?
- No.

He's been nothing
but professional.

Calm, collected;
all Dr. Jekyll.

No sign of Mr. Hyde.

I want to speak to him.

- No...
Yes. - No.

Yes. We need
to keep pushing Zack.

Look, this is the
perfect opportunity.

If it is him,

this will help lure out
the alternate identity.

What if it's not him?

Well, then your wife

will be in no danger whatsoever.

Please, Booth.

I-I need to do this.

Yes, just stick with me.
Bones, just...

I like this part.

Dr. Brennan.

It is so good to have you
joining me.

It's been too long
since we have worked

side by side.

Zack, before we begin,
I just want

to make sure that you've
had enough time

to review all the evidence.

You've seen the crime
scene photos, correct?

Yes, thank you.

I've had ample time.

If Dr. Brennan and I
could proceed...

Uh, yes. Just one
question before we start.

I-I wondered...

what you thought of my profile
of the killer.

My opinion is immaterial.

My expertise is in forensic
anthropology, not psychology.

Yes, I know.
You know what?

One more question... Sorry.

Um, what about blackouts?

Have you had any
in the last year?


If you and I are going
to continue,

you have to answer that.


I admit I have had
lapses in memory,

most likely due
to changes in my medication.

Now may we continue?

Oh, please.

Dr. Brennan.

If we could,

I would like to start
with the third victim.

on the right hand,

you found longitudinal fractures

of the second, third and fourth
proximal phalanges.

The killer struggled
with this victim.

Because he is physically weak.

Now, look at the direct fracture

along the base of the occipital.


How are they doing?

Uh, you know.

I got nothing,
how about you?

Well, I talked

to Karen's supervisor
in Kansas City,

a guy named Paul Crawford,
you know him?

No, but let me guess,
nothing happened.

Well, I wouldn't be
so sure.

When I asked why Karen left,
Paul said-- and I quote--

"legally," he couldn't comment.

What does that mean?
I have no idea.

I'm gonna keep
asking around, but

in the meantime, you want me
to take Karen off the case?

No, not yet.

And also, I got Dr. Roshan
waiting for you.

Apparently he's
got some suspects

he wants you
to look at.

Okay, bring
him in here.


Agent Booth,
thank you for seeing me.

I wanted you to have these
as soon as possible.

What's this?

The former inmates--

each one of whom
spent considerable time

with Dr. Addy,

and each one
suffered from D.I.D.

All right, Aubrey, do me
a favor-- get on this right away

and see if you can
track them down. Thanks.

Got it.


What's going on?

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to scare you.

We tried to get you over
the intercom, and then

when you didn't come, I might
have kind of panicked.

Relax, just breathe it out.

Bones, what's going on?

It's okay, Booth,
I'm fine.


What have you done to him?

He's okay.
Nothing happened,

it's just that he...

...we have come to a conclusion.

Dr. Roshan, uh,

i-if it is all right,

I would very much like to return
to the institution.

This time to maximum security.

Wait, what the hell happened?
Brennan and Zack

have reviewed
all the evidence, and although

Zack doesn't

- committing such crimes...
- He and I agree

the evidence is conclusive.

He's guilty.

Booth, come on.
Let me take care of this.

I can fill out the form, let me
drive him back to the asylum.

I got it. I am fine. Okay?

I do not get you,

you know that?
I mean, all of the evidence

points to Zack,
even he can't deny it,

but now you don't think
that he did it.

Look, it's...
It doesn't matter, okay?

It's just a gut feeling,
that's all.


maybe your gut
needs a probiotic.

It's a probiotic--
it's, like, a health thing.

Stop. I got your point, okay?

You think that Zack is guilty,

but once again my gut is telling
me something else, all right?

Once again? Hold on a second,
what are you saying?

Are you saying
that you didn't think

he was guilty the first
time with the lobbyist?

I got to go.

Ms. Delfs, for the
last time, I'm fine.

Please stop following me.

Well, Dr. Brennan,
I'm just trying to help.

I really think that
after what happened with Zack,

you need time to process.

I would like you to leave.

Dr. Brennan,

you're not thinking rationally.

I mean, what are you even
doing here? There's no more work

to be done.

You're safe, it's over.

Stay away from me.

Dr. Brennan.

I think you need
to come with me.

Let's find you a place

to sit down.

Dr. Faulk warned us

someone would insert themselves

into the case, manipulate it.

That the killer
would need to feel in control.

The ki...


Oh, my God.
Are you serious?

I need to know why
you left your last job.


okay-- it's because
my married boss

kept hitting on me, incessantly,

so I hit him back.


Dr. Brennan,
is everything okay?

Yeah, everything's
fine, except for

a whole lot of crazy going on.

Uh, Mr. Bray,
I'm fine, unless...

unless you have something.

Uh, yes,
actually, I did

find something.

Here, take a look
at the victim's L4.

There appears to a sliver
of fused

vertebra attached,
but what doesn't make sense...

Is that the sliver
is connected at a near

90 degree angle.

Oh, I know what happened.

The lower half of the body

is not missing.

It's still attached
to a living person.

Don't you see?

This half of the body

used to be part
of a larger whole.

Conjoined twin.

It fits.
After being separated

from his other half,
the killer must have

adopted his dead twin's

Zack didn't do it.

Aside from the one
on his forehead,

he has no scars on his body.
Yeah, I'm not

even gonna ask
how you know that.

We need to go through
hospital records.

A surgery like this
would be exceedingly rare.

If we can figure out
who performed the surgery...

No, that would take
too much time.

I know a quicker way
to find identity.

Okay, so, this is my
facial reconstruction

of the teenage victim.

Okay, now I need you
to start aging him.

How far ahead
do you want to go?

From the exfoliation
on the cortical bone, we know

the victim was exhumed
between ten and 20 years ago.

Angela, start
by adding

ten years, then readjust,

adding one year
at a time.

I can't believe that
Zack didn't do it.

The killer manipulated us
into believing that he did.

Which means

whoever did this

must have known Zack intimately.

Known how to steer the evidence.

Wait, stop. Angela, uh,

please pull up your scan
of the skull.

That's it.

The markers indicate male,
but the overall dimensions

are less robust in size.

Right, because he was a kid.
He also

could have been
of Eastern Indian decent,

so let me change the skin tone.

Oh, my God.
Uh, add a beard and glasses.

I need to call Booth.

Bones, what's up?
I was just heading back.

Booth, Zack didn't do it.

It was Dr. Roshan.

I have proof.

You... you have to trust me.

All right, hold on.

Dr. Addy, you've had quite
a trying day, haven't you?

Allow me to

give you something
to help you relax.


give me your arm.

I promise...

this will only sting
for a moment.

Doctor, as I have
always told people...

I'm stronger than I look.

I can't do it.




Dr. Addy.

Zack, you okay?

I couldn't do it.


I couldn't kill him.

Hey. I just wanted
to give you guys the good news.

Zack is okay. So is Booth.

Dr. Roshan, not so much.

That's great.
That's great,

thank you for letting us know.

Dr. Hodgins, are you okay?

Yeah. Yeah, Cam.

I'm just...

really, really relieved
that it's over.

Um, you should tell her.

It's his legs.

Um, he's lost all feeling,

and it's, uh, probably
for good this time.

So... that's what it is.


Angela, look at me.

I'm okay.

I'm not in pain.

Okay? I'm okay.

I'm okay.

Thank you
for coming to visit.

It is nice to see you both
in a non-adversarial climate.

Zack, given what's happened,
I've been looking into

having you transferred,
if that's what you'd like.

Yes. I've been doing a great
deal of thinking on the subject,

and I believe I am now ready
to reenter society.

No, no, hold on,
Zack, okay,

this is a transfer.
You understand that, correct?

I never killed the lobbyist.

I confessed because I assumed
I would if I'd been instructed,

but then last night, I learned
I'm not capable of killing.

Not even to save myself.

No, I don't believe it.

You confessed.

The evidence...

Should be reexamined.
I did not kill him.

I believe you.

Trust me. Listen,

you know what,
we're gonna help you.

You understand?
You've served your time.

Thank you.

He doesn't like hugs.

I have gloves on.
