Summary: The remains of a State Department accountant are found in a hotel’s air-conditioning unit, but the investigation takes an unusual turn when Booth discovers that an old Army pal, who’s now CIA agent, is also looking for clues. Meanwhile Booth seeks advice from a friend and former priest about his relationship with Brennan, who is uncertain about their future together.
Guest Starring: Freddie Prince Jr.
As predicted, there is tension between Booth and Bones as the consequences of what Booth did come to light. It looks like they patch things up by the end of the show, but you know that Booth is going to do everything he can to try and find Palant.
It looks like we got a start to what Freddy Prince Jr’s character is going to be on the show. He has signed on for a few episodes and I’m sure his role as Booth’s friend, Danny, will play critical to the show. My guess is he’s going to have some kind of link to Palant.
Here’s a recap of the show.

Booth comes to work with Sweets/Caroline waiting. They try to talk about the engagement and he brushes them off as a call comes in.
