Bones (2005–2017): Season 12, Episode 8 - The Grief and the Girl - full transcript

Sara Abbott's badly damaged corpse was found in Newfoundland, apparently after a fatal fall, so the FBI must collaborate with a local Mountie, fully depending on Canadian courtesy for lack of US jurisdiction. Hodgings find a merely scientific clue that excites Clarkas it points to a probable Viking settlement. Instead of mourning properly with the kids, Bones buries herself in the cause of death and takes her grief out on Booth, insisting he joins Aubrey on Canadian mission, yet spends time with her 'ex who got away' Tim Sullivan. They find clues involving the victim's biological family and local land tycoon Adam Hitchcock.

Bones, you okay?

Can I make you something?

You bought cream soda? My
dad was the only one who drank it.

We don't need it anymore.

I heard back from the cemetery.

11:00 on Friday will work.

They said that
they'll do their best

to clean my mother's
headstone before that.

I'm sorry. For what?

For not noticing that my
father was the only one

in this house who
ever drank cream soda?

Look, you're not alone here.

Remember that. I love you.
Just tell me what you need.


It's your phone.

It doesn't matter.

There's a body

washed up on the beach
in Newfoundland, Canada.

A United States passport
was found in the travel belt.

Well, Max used to buy
that soda. For the kids.

He would mix it up
with a little heavy cream,

and he would call it a
"Grandpa milkshake."

I just thought it would
be nice to have around.

Their remains were brought to
the Jeffersonian to confirm ID.

You want me to drive you? No.

I am perfectly capable
of driving myself.

Remodeling of the
right clavicle and ulna

are a match for the
childhood injuries.

So, ID is positive.

Sarah Abbott, 22,
Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Wonder what she was
doing in Newfoundland.

She's dressed like
she was out for a hike.

Well, there's a chest wound
It's a through and through.

CLARK: Gunshot?

There's structural damage
and staining throughout.

Looks like this
is what killed her.

Check it out, good old dung.

Not even the ocean
can wash that off.

I'm finding multiple fractures.

Exact cause and
time are indeterminate.

Degree of decomp
and adipocere formation

suggests she hasn't
been dead that long.

Maybe three days in the
water and one on the beach.

Hey, guys.

Just a heads-up,
Brennan is on her way in.

She is?

Well, Booth must have told her

about the case 'cause
I didn't contact her.

Well, for whatever reason, the lab
is where she wants to be right now.

BOOTH: Is that
some sort of a picture?

It was in the
victim's travel belt.

I've sent the
original to Angela,

we'll see what she can do.

Anything else on the victim?

Just passport, house key.
We really don't know much.

Recent graduate of UNC. Older
sister said she's been traveling a lot.

Well, is she coming in? Yeah.

She's on her way. Right.

So, how's Brennan?

Well, she's... You know,
given her history and all,

she's a lot tougher
than she should be.

Let me know when the
older sister gets here.

Booth. Yeah?

There was nothing that
you could have done.

Yeah, maybe not in the moment,

but there's a lot that
I could have done.


Cam said you had
something for me?


How are you?

(SIGHS) Everyone
keeps asking me that.

I don't know how to
answer that question.

Okay, then, how are the kids?

They're adjusting.

But we've had a
few days all together,

and I think they're relieved
to get back to routine.


BRENNAN: Was this
found with the victim?

Yeah, I've been trying to reverse
engineer the water damage

to figure out what it is.

Looks like a painting.

I actually think it's a
photograph of a painting,

printed on regular
printer paper.

All that blue, maybe a seascape.

SULLY: Temperance.


Oh. Uh...

We'll just give
you two a minute.

Hi, bye.

Where did he come from?

I have no idea.

Security just said
that we had a visitor.

Hey, who's the dude that's
hugging up on Dr. Brennan?

(SIGHS) Tim Sullivan. "Sully."

And he is?

The only guy besides Booth
who ever stood a chance.




I mean, those are some
cute kids. Thank you.

Probably not too smart though.

Of course, they're
smart. I'm kidding.

Oh. I know.

Why are you here?

I mean, not just
on the East Coast.

I mean, here.

I found out what
happened with your dad

and I wanted to check on you.

You've aged.


Yes. Thank you?

What about the woman?

The one who plays the clarinet.

Oboe. Oboe.

Oboe, yeah, she is young.

So, I'm not sure
there's a future there.

Well, statistically
speaking, if she's young,

there's more of a
chance of a future with her

than with someone your own age.

It is good to see you, Tempe.

(CHUCKLES) You, too.

There's beveling
on the left scapula,

as well as damage on the third

and fourth left vertebral ribs.

Well, all consistent with
a gunshot. Mmm-hmm.

Though soft tissue

suggests it was low velocity.


Let's talk about
this Sully character.

Exactly how long were he
and Dr. Brennan together?

Not very long. Hmm.

I'm surprised, Dr. Edison.

I didn't take you for a
workplace gossip type of guy.

I'm not. I'm just concerned.

Dr. Brennan is in a
vulnerable place right now,

and I think the
timing of this visit

seems awfully convenient.

You talking about Sully?

He is not a predator. Trust me,

he's one of the
nicest guys around.

Are you here to swab something?

Oh, yeah, so it turns out

that the only thing I could find

in the external chest wound

besides seawater
were trace amounts

of paraflagellar gigantea
and helios tamela algae.

Nothing to link
us to the weapon?

No. I'm not giving up. May I?

Be my guest.

Dr. Edison.

Can you look at this?

There's something
embedded in the adipocere.

Yes, what is that?

Well, it looks like a bone.

Fragment or something vestigial?

I'm not sure.

Hey, Cam,

there's a piece of string
adhered to the tissue there.

You see that?

Maybe that's something
that the victim was wearing.

Let me get this straight.
You make sandwiches?

Yeah, I even
named one after you.

Triple decker rib roast
beef, pastrami, Swiss cheese.

All right. Is that
one rye? Oh, yeah.

I approve. What about me?

I want a sandwich.

But you have one,
the "Tempe Tempeh."

Excuse me, folks, the
victim's sister is here.

How you doing? Special
Agent James Aubrey.

I work with Booth and Brennan.

Tim Sullivan.
Former Special Agent,

now professional sandwich maker.

You'd be my new idol.

Listen, Sully, we gotta
get back to the case, so...

Oh. No, of course.

Hey, how about dinner
tomorrow? On me.

That would be nice. SULLY: Okay.

I'll see you then.

Our parents died in a
car crash 14 years ago.

That's when your sister
suffered those breaks?

We were both in the car.
I was 18, I grew up fast.

But Sarah, she was only eight.

She went to go live
with our grandmother.

Your mom's mom
right, Stella Louis.

She passed away,
what, four months ago?

Yes, Sarah and Grandma
Stella were super close.

She took it hard.

It's understandable.

She was sort of adrift.

I thought traveling would help.

Why Newfoundland?

I'm not sure.

Maybe she just wanted to go
somewhere that was far away.

That's where we're...

We're still working on the
water damage to this picture.

Does that look familiar to you?

Do you recognize that at all?

I think this is a painting
my grandmother had.

Any idea why Sarah
would have been

carrying around a
copy of it with her?


I wish I did.

I have a husband
and a baby on the way.

Why do I feel like I don't
have a family anymore?

So, these pictures,
this is all Newfoundland?

It's similar, right?
And look at this.

This is the
painting's signature.

AUBREY: "Stella Louis." The
victim's grandmother painted this.

ANGELA: Yeah, and
she called it Secret Harbor.

What's so secret?

I don't know. Maybe
she went there to find out.

Hmm. So, speaking of
secrets, I just met Tim Sullivan.

Now, am I imaging things

or is there some
kind of history there?

Tell me everything.

That was Clark.

So, the fragment
found on the victim

is a piece of animal bone.

Apparently she was wearing it.

You mean like a
necklace? Precisely.

It's apparent age suggests
it was some sort of relic.

Clark is checking with the
human artifacts division.

See if they can figure
out where it came from.

Have you heard back from
the State Department yet?

The Royal Canadian
Mounted Police

have agreed to full
FBI involvement.

That's great. When do you leave?

I'm not going.

But you're the lead on the case.

You're about to bury your
dad. I want to be here for you.

Booth, you asked what you
could do. How you could help.

I think it would be good for
me to be alone for a few days.


You want me to go, I'll go.

HODGINS: So, the
dung on the victim's boot

came from Rangifer tarandus.

Otherwise knows as...

Boreal woodland caribou.

How did you know that?

Oh, yeah, right.

I forgot I still
had that up there.

Okay, so far, I've identified
two types of lichen in the dung.

Also, hey, fun fact,
Old man's beard.

It can be used as
toilet paper in a pinch.

I'm sorry, are we still having
the same conversation?

Old man's beard. It's the
nickname for Usnea lichen.

Good to know. Do these
caribou have migration patterns?

They do, yeah. Also
the lichen can be found

in varying concentrations
around the island.

The animal bone we
found with the victim,

it's a needle.

For nalbinding.

Nal what? Nalbinding.

It's an ancient
precursor to knitting.

And this particular
style of nalbinding needle

most closely resembles
those used by Vikings.

Like seafaring
raider type Vikings?

Well, two years
ago, in Scotland,

a man found a Viking hoard

that was later valued
at over $2 million.

Well, if our victim found
something similar...

Well, maybe it got her killed.

Well, it's nice out
now. Could get mauzy.

Mauzy? What the
hell does that mean?

Slang up here for damp
and foggy. I've been studying.

Yeah, Booth.

BOOTH: What do you got?
Results from the victim's chest wound.

Minute traces of
carbon reinforced

polymer and
apparently venison jerky.


Found venison jerky
on the murder weapon.

All right, I'll get
back to you later.

Mauzy? Come on, man.

Special Agent Booth,
Special Agent Aubrey.

Is that what Mounties wear
nowadays? I'm so disappointed.

I'm Officer Gilda Sandling. I'm the
RCMP officer assigned to this case.

Pleasure to meet you.
How's it getting on by?

What's that?

My one and only attempt
to sound like a Newfie.

Not bad.

Though you should probably
know the term "Newfie"

is considered offensive,
coming from a CFA.

Non-native, "comes from away."


We've got a potential witness.

Thought one of you can take the
rental car and go and check her out.

The other one of
you can stay with me

and we'll ride along
the coastal roads,

see if we can't find a match
to that painting you sent.

Who is the witness?
Short-term rental owner.

Says Sarah Abbott was a tenant.

Woman's a bit of a
local celebrity, actually.

Makes gourmet venison jerky.

I'll take that one. You got it.


Chest wound directionality
is posterior to anterior.

Perimortem fractures
on the posterior plane

suggests that she was
then struck repeatedly.

Possibility of an undiscovered

Viking settlement
is certainly exciting.

I suppose so.

You have my approval
to pursue an investigation

as long as you can assure me

that your work on
this case will not suffer.

You serious?

Thank you, Dr. Brennan.

GRETCHEN: Teriyaki
is still my biggest seller.

But the black pepper
cider's hot on its heels.

Wow. Thank you.

Now, Mrs. Crockett... Gretchen.

So, like, how widely available
is your jerky, Gretchen?

I can ship it anywhere.
You live in DC?

No, I mean, yeah, I do. But...
I would love some actually.

But I'm asking in
context of the case.

There might have been
jerky at the crime scene.

Oh, no.

Well, honestly, my jerky
is sold all over the island.

Even in a few stores
on the mainland. I see.

Hey, so, do you remember
the last time you saw Sarah?

Last Tuesday night.

A man had given
Sarah a ride home

from somewhere. I
heard them outside.

About what time was that?

A little past 10:00, seems this
man had gotten the wrong idea.

Did he sound threatening?

I heard him say, "You're
gonna regret this."

You think you
could describe him?

I wrote down his license
plate number, just in case.


AUBREY: The guy renting
the car is Adam Hitchcock.

He's an American. I sent
you some background.

He's in the area
scouting out a site for him

and his dad to build
a new luxury resort.

Okay, so, his dad's
David Hitchcock.

Big real estate developer.
No wonder his kid's an ass.

I know, right. Every time
I see the name Hitchcock,

my brain immediately
turns into the rich...

Get it, Aubrey, thank you.

His temporary offices
aren't too far from here.

Let's go and see if
he wants to talk. Okay.

Okay, what's this about? I've
already submitted for permits.

Mr. Hitchcock, this is
FBI Special Agent Booth.

Look, did you know
Sarah Abbott? Who?

Oh. That girl. Yeah, I met her.

She was in your
car, Mr. Hitchcock.

Showed up dead two days later.

What? No, no. I met
her at a bar, okay.

She was showing people
this painting of a cove.

I offered to drive
her around, look for it.

Why did you tell her she'd
regret turning you down?

Who wouldn't regret
turning me down?

I don't know, how about Julia
Henshaw? Remember her?

College classmate who
accused you of sexual assault.

The case was settled. That's
because your daddy paid it off.

How about the reports where
you blackmail contractors

if they don't do what you tell
them? Where the hell do you get...

I think you're just
an entitled jerk

who doesn't understand
the word "No."

You better watch
it. I better watch it?

You harassed a
vulnerable young woman

who was in mourning
and now she's dead.

Thank you,
Mr. Hitchcock, I apologize,

my colleague is out of line.

What? You're damn right he is.

You can return to work
now. Thank you for your time.

So, you tried to muzzle
me in front of a suspect?

Let me explain.

This is an economically
depressed area.

We can't afford to just chase
away major development.

It doesn't matter if this guy's a
murderer? Of course, it matters.

We need to have
solid evidence first.

Fine, I got it. I got it.

I'm sorry, Agent Booth.

I'm really not trying
to shut you out here.

Of course you're not. No one is.

SULLY: Of course,
I remember that,

I had to go to
work in that shirt.

You did? Yeah.

What about the hole?

I had to wear my
jacket the entire day.

It was 90 degrees.
People thought I was crazy.



feel like telling me
about your dad?

I'm happy to listen.

Max was a criminal
who did terrible things.

But he was also sweet and...


(SIGHS) He abandoned
me and made me...

(SIGHS) Made it difficult for me

to ever trust another
man and yet...

He loved you.


I don't know why I'm crying.

It's okay.

No, I mean, I don't know...

(SIGHS) Why I'm crying with you.

And Booth is the
one who's been here.

He's the one I
built my life with.

So, why am I letting you in,

when he feels so far away?

Grief, it's...

It does things. It mixes you up.

Do you remember when we met

and my FBI partner had
just died the year before?

I remember.

But you seemed
so open. So fearless.

Yeah, then I sold everything
that I owned and ran away

from the first woman
I ever truly loved.

You said you'd come back.

I know.

So, why didn't you?

Because somewhere deep
down, I knew where this was going.

It's probably why I
left in the first place.

I mean, if I had come back,

I'd have had to
deal with the fact

that you still
wouldn't choose me.

So, by staying away, I
got to hold on to the fantasy

that I was your
one that got away.

That's an extremely
flawed strategy.

Look, you're gonna
get through this.

I mean, yeah,

it's gonna hurt for a while,

but just give
yourself some time.

You know, Booth's
not going anywhere.

HODGINS: What are
you working on exactly?

I'm attempting
satellite archeology.

Looking for shadows, solar
marks, denser plant growth.

You know, any
combination of these

could suggest
earlier disturbances,

even buried features. Such
as, like a Viking settlement?


Okay, move over then,
'cause that is awesome.

CAM: Cross sections show a
distinct lack of kinetic trauma.

I don't think it was a gunshot.

Well, the fractures
on the scapula

suggest both sharp force
and projectile trauma.

An arrow.

Right, like one
used for hunting.

Such a brutal way
to kill someone.

There, a broadhead,
that explains

the carbon fiber
Dr. Hodgins found.

That's used for the stems.

It could also explain
the venison jerky.

If the killer was eating some
right before loading an arrow...

The particulars would
have transferred.

You should tell
Booth. Aren't you...

You want me?

Yes. I will call him right now.


Dude, you're beeping.

Yeah, that's your fault.

'Cause that's for the results

that you wanted
from the fractures.

Let's take a look here.


These look like the injuries
were all made by rocks.

Coastal ones.

She must have fallen.

Probably from quite a height.

So, say she was standing on
a cliff or a bluff or, you know,

somewhere above the ocean. Yeah.

She gets shot. Yeah, falls
forward, off of the edge.

Flips in midair and
falls flat on her back.

Right on the rocks.

Tide came up, washed her to sea.

Okay, great. So, all we
have to do is locate a cliff

that's the correct distance
above a rocky coastline

to account for the
severity of the fractures

and we've got
ourselves a murder site,

like, right there.

Or there. Or there.

Yeah, maybe we
should just go back

to searching for Vikings.

Might be easier.

Hey, Rick's Sporting Goods
and Hunting Adventures,

Gilda says that's where everyone

in the area gets
their hunting supplies.

You coming? Why don't
you take this one, all right?

I'm gonna dig a little deeper
on this Adam Hitchcock guy.

I got a gut feeling about him.

Look, it's none
of my business...

Correct. But I'm just
gonna keep talking anyway.

I don't know anything, really,

but whatever is
going on right now,

I'm sure you guys
will get through it.

Just let me know what you find

from the arrowheads there, okay?


Thanks, Aubrey.


What do you have to show me?

So, I've been finding out more

about Grandma Stella's painting.

Which means I've
been finding out more

about Grandma Stella herself.

CAM: Stella Anders
and Philip Louis.

So, Philip was in the army,
but, before they were married,

he was stationed at
a US-run military base

in Newfoundland.

And who are these people?

ANGELA: That's a family
that lived near the base.

The Andreassens.

The oldest daughter, Estelle,

was the same age as
the victim's grandmother.

So, you think Estelle Andreassen

and Stella Anders
are the same person?

The victim wasn't
looking for Vikings.

She was looking for her
grandmother's history.

Her home.

Kathleen here is the
daughter of owner Rick.

She's been hunting
since she was 10.



Should get some of this.

For evidence?

For snacks.

Here's what I think
you're looking for.

Cutting diameter,
one-twentieth of an inch.

Multi blade. Bow used probably
draws between 60 and 65 pounds,

and its draw length's
between 28 and 29 inches.

Okay, you keep a
record of who buys these?

Not at all and we sell a ton.

Anyone who goes bow
hunting out here for big game

is gonna want
something like this.

I hear someone
interested in hunting?

Well, in a manner of speaking.

Rick Tobine. This
here is my store

and I've been a hunting guide

in the island for over 40 years.

Where you visiting from? DC.

FBI Special Agent James Aubrey.

We're here about a murder, Rick.

Young woman. You recognize her?

No, I'm sorry about that.

What about Adam Hitchcock?
That name ring a bell?

Rich guy. Took him out
about a week and a half ago.

Does he use a gun or a bow?

Bow. Real pain in my ass.

Got him a black bear.
Good size one, too.

But he said he wanted a caribou.

Complained he's got a
bear head back at home.

Now that, I've seen.

AUBREY: The painting?
No, not the painting.

The harbor.


I think I've seen that on
the Andreassen property.

Yeah. Family's got tons of land.

AUBREY: You think
they were related?

Well, look, if the victim's
grandmother was an Andreassen,

then that means
the victim was, too.

family's got over 300 acres

of pristine oceanfront property.

Rumor is Adam Hitchcock wants
to buy it for upwards of 24 million.

Well, that's an amount that
you might not want to share

with a suddenly
appearing long-lost relative.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly.
Look, I'm arriving now.

We'll be there in five.

Hey. Excuse me.

You live here?


Come on. Come on
up, arrow boy. Let's go.

Up, that's it.

Do you make it a
habit of shooting people

who come onto
your property, pal?

If I was actually trying to shoot
you, I wouldn't have missed.

I was just trying to scare you.


I thought you work
for that Adam guy.

Adam Hitchcock? Yeah.

He's been harassing my wife,
trying to get her to sell this place.

These arrows
are all field heads.

They aren't used for hunting.

Right, okay.

We have reason to believe that
this woman was on your property.

Do you recognize her?

Oh, my God, what's going on?

Doug? Mrs. Andreassen,
I'm Officer Sandling.

It's okay, honey,
there's been a mistake.

Wait, that's Sarah,
why do you have that?

You knew her? Knew?

Oh, my God, did
something happen to her?

You found something that
could help locate the murder site?

I think so.

There was extensive
damage on the cortical surface

due to postmortem scavenging.

But look at what
the scratches reveal.

Here and here.

Staining. There could be an
underlying pattern of contusions.

Hey, Clark. Hodgins said
you were looking for me?

Yes, the victim has a
perimortem bone bruising

on the frontal and
right zygomatic.

We just need your
help to determine

what might have
caused the injuries.

Okay, well, send me all the data

and I'll see what I can do.


I need to get some air.

So, is everything set
for your dad's service?

Yes, it will be simple.

Are you and Hodgins coming?

Yeah, of course. Is your
brother gonna be there?

Russ can't make it.

He and Amy and the girls

are coming to visit
us this summer and...

We'll do something
nice for my dad then.

Brennan, I really think that
you should talk to Booth.

He is your husband.

You can share
some of this with him.

Maybe I don't want to.

Maybe when I try, I end
up worrying about him.

About whether he
feels responsible

for what happened
and how I can...

(SIGHS) Reassure
him that he's not.

That I don't blame him.

I just don't feel like worrying
about anyone right now.

Is that wrong? No.

I totally get it.

I met her at the grocers.

She was putting up a copy of
this painting asking for information.

"I know that spot," I
said. "It's on my property."

And you drove her
out here yourself?

Yes, she explained everything.
The painting, her grandmother.

What about her grandmother?

That she lived here as a child.

We figured out that my mother
and Sarah's grandmother must have

been friends when
they were little. How so?

They told us all the same
stories about this place.

They used to find things.
Bits of metal, petrified nuts.

My mother kept a
small tin full of stuff

and Sarah showed me something

her grandmother gave her.
She had it around her neck.

Techs aren't finding anything.

Look, is there any chance that
Sarah might have been anywhere else

on the property by herself?

Sure, I told her she
was welcome anytime.

Even if Doug and I were at work.

Ms. Andreassen, we'd have to
do genetic testing to be certain,

but there's a chance
that your mother

and Sarah's
grandmother were related.


We think they were sisters.

So, that's what caused the
bone bruising on the victim's face?

ANGELA: Yeah, it's
called a trail blaze.

They are located
all over the property.

That way you can
still follow the trails

even when there's
snow on the ground.

Are there any
near that coastline?

I'm scanning the
entire property now

using those satellite
photos that you gave me.

Each time we
find a spot that has

everything that
we're looking for...

Like trail blaze, sharp
drop, rocky oceanfront.

Right. I send the
coordinates to Aubrey

and he sends a tech team there.



They found the secret harbor?

Yeah, it looks just
like the painting, right?

Aubrey sent it.

The techs searched the area,
but they didn't find anything.

Could you pull up a satellite
view of that spot for me please?

Yeah, let me just
figure out what quadrant.

Okay, just please
pull it up right here.

one sec. Okay, here.

Leave it up on the screen.

Hodgins! Hodgins! What?

Yeah, we got some
blood right here.

SANDLING: All right, people, we're
in the right spot, so keep looking.

If the victim was shot,
she fell back there.

She didn't just
topple into the ocean.

No, killer must have dragged
her to the edge, pushed her off.

Techs found something.

Recently made ground holes.

Could be the result of
a portable hunting blind.

Plus, I found this. AUBREY:
Well, that's thoughtful.

They left us some jerky
and some fingerprints.

I'll run the prints. Looks
like we found our killer.

CLARK: Come on. Come on.

Come on. Dang it, Clark, what?

Look. Look.


The growth pattern,
it's undeniable.

What are you guys talking about?

Wait, I heard yelling.
Did we find something?

HODGINS: Vikings, Cam.

We found Vikings.

Are they teeny-tiny Vikings?

No, look, see how the grass
growth here is darker, denser?

It's because
depressions in the soil

caused more moisture
to collect there,

providing an almost perfect
silhouette of a buried structure.

There could be an entire
settlement here to excavate.

I have to contact the
Jeffersonian research division.

Excuse me.


Aubrey says they got an ID.

SANDLING: Kathleen Tobine.

I'm afraid you need
to come with us.

Hey! What the hell do
you think you're doing?

Mr. Tobine, your
daughter is under arrest.

For what?

Trespassing, attempted
poaching and murder.

Kathleen? I'm sorry, Dad.

I'm sorry.

So, Kathleen Tobine
made a full confession.

Said she was hunting
illegally on private property,

and accidentally
shot Sarah Abbott.

That's great.

Yeah, only Booth
doesn't believe her.

Says it doesn't
feel right. I agree.

CAM: You do?

Well, supposedly, the victim
was killed here and then dragged

to the edge of the
sea cliff and dropped.

Meaning she would have landed...

Okay, let me get you a parabola.

Victim landed right about here.

Exactly. But the
injuries are consistent

with this area
here that's rockier.

So, how did the victim
end up that far out?

She wasn't pushed. She
was held by her hands and feet

and swung out
parallel to the ground.

The victim was thrown.

So, someone else was there.

Two days ago, Adam Hitchcock
made an offer on your land

for $3 million, more
than what it's worth.

It was a payoff, wasn't it?

You didn't kill Sarah Abbott.

Adam Hitchcock did, right?

He was so stuck on
getting that damn caribou.

He told me he'd hire me and
my dad to run the hunting tours

at his new resort if I
could help find him one.

But a job like that is
worth a lot of money.

Of course it is.

I knew there was some on the
Andreassen land this time of the year.

I didn't think anyone
would be there.

We were in the blind
and Adam saw movement,

and he just took a shot.

And it was Sarah.

It was awful.

Why didn't you report it?

Well, Adam, he said he knew her.

He even left a bar with
her the night before.

He said there was
no way authorities

would believe it
was just an accident.

So, he paid you to help
him get rid of the body?

I may not have killed that girl,

but if it wasn't for
me, she'd still be alive.

Hey. Hi.

So, I'm heading to the airport.

Came to say goodbye.

Goodbye, Sully.

Thank you for
everything. Anytime.

Stay in touch, okay?

I will.


The oboe player.

Do you love her?

Yeah. Yeah, I do.

Does she love you?

Apparently, yes. Okay.

You know, she's a
28-year-old symphony musician.

I am a 45-year-old
former FBI agent

who owns a sandwich shop.



So, I see your point.


Bye, Tempe. Bye, Sully.

HODGINS: I'm telling you,

with the evidence
that we've got,

as well as Kathleen's testimony,

that guy does not
stand a chance.

Hey. Good, you guys
are already celebrating.

Yeah. We've got news.

You got the funding? Yes.

I am already coordinating
with the Andreassens

to set up a start date
for the excavation dig.

Amazing. Okay, to Vikings. Wait.

With Tess and Lucy's permission,

I ran some genetic tests

just to confirm that
they were related.

And are they? Yes,
but beyond that...

They also share fragments
of a Norse haplogroup.

Embedded in a First
Nations genome.

And appearing to date
back 30 generations.

Well, okay, meaning
what exactly?

They're descended from Vikings.

Okay, that is incredible.


To Vikings. Yes.

Welcome home.

It's good to be home.

I'm glad you're back. Me, too.

The kids are asleep? Yes.

I told them you'd go in
and give them kisses.

Yeah, of course.

What are you working on?

My dad's eulogy.
It's just some notes.

I'm not sure if it's any good.

No, Bones, it's gonna be great.

'Cause it's coming
from the heart. All right?

Booth, about Sully...

No, you don't have to explain
yourself about Sully. It's okay.

He's important to you. Yes,

but I want you to understand
why he's important.

It's because, without Sully,

I don't think I would
have been ready for you.

For this.

And because of that, I will
always be grateful to him because

I love this.

I love you.

I love you, Bones.



In Norse mythology, there
is a place called Valhalla.

It is the home of the gods,

but it is also the place
where the bravest warriors

get to spend their afterlives.

After each battle, the
Valkyries or spirit women

ride amongst
the fallen soldiers,

deciding which ones
fought bravely enough

to enter the land of the gods.

My father gave
his life to protect

my children.

It's that kind of bravery, I
imagine, would impress a Valkyrie.

But the impulse to

protect one's
offspring is innate.

It's hardwired. How could he
possibly have done any less?

To me, the bravest battle
Max Keenan ever fought

was the one he began
over 10 years ago

when he reentered my life.

Since then, every day,

he has fought to show
me how much he loves me.

And to make me believe
that I could trust him again.

And he won that fight.

But I do believe I
was truly blessed

to have a father
like Max Keenan.

A father who loved me.

So very much.


Goodbye, Dad.
