"Bones" season 9 continued Monday, Nov. 4 with episode 7, "The Nazi on the Honeymoon," as Booth and Brennan vacationed in Buenos Aires for their honeymoon. But Brennan wouldn't be Brennan if she didn't find a murder to investigate. Meanwhile, back home, Angela and Hodgins learned something about themselves when they looked after Christine for the newlyweds.
It wouldn't be a "Bones" honeymoon without a murder, as Brennan just couldn't relax by the pool like her new husband could. So she brought him to the local morgue, where she discovered that bones that had been found in a mass grave were burned recently. They had a murder on their hands, and the local detective, Inspector Valenza, was more than happy to have Booth on board because he idolized Agent Andy. Yes, Brennan's book was apparently on everyone's reading list in Buenos Aires. The more they investigated, the more they found out about their victim, who turned out to be a Nazi who had sent many people to the gas chambers. He wasn't a nice guy, but they still had to do their jobs.
But who killed him? Was it someone who found out who he was? Was it his much younger wife for his money? The signs seemed to point her way, especially when they found her leaving with the cash she had gotten for the gold bars in his wine cellar—a wine cellar that clued them in on his Nazi background. Someone had used one of those gold bars to kill him. However, the wife just wanted the money she could get for her gold and was just guilty of trying to make a quick escape with the cash. It was as Brennan was leaving the case in the local coroner's hands that she solved it. The coroner, Perez, had the same abnormality as the victim. She was his granddaughter and when he showed her his wine cellar, she told him she didn't want the blood money. He called her weak and laughed at her, and she hit him until he stopped laughing. But she had no regrets.
In the end, Booth and Brennan did sit back, relax with drinks—in skull cups!—and enjoy the end of their honeymoon, already planning for their future. Booth and Brennan enjoyed their honeymoon, doing what they loved—catching a killer together—and it was a sign that nothing was going to change just because they had gotten married.
Meanwhile, back home, Christine and Michael Vincent were absolutely adorable together, as each time Angela and Hodgins misplaced them, they found them quietly playing behind the couch or in the corner (though they were nuisances at work, running around the lab as Cam tried to chase them down). Angela and Hodgins went from liking the idea of two kids—they entertain each other, giving them more time alone—to hating it—one started crying as soon as the other stopped—to deciding that they both wanted another kid.
"Bones" season 9 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on FOX. What did you think of episode 7 "The Nazi on the Honeymoon"?
