The "Bones" episode titled "The Survivor in the Soap" aired on Fox channel 10 in Phoenix March 4, 2013 and fans were treated to a soapy mess along with a little romance, a little comedy, and a ton of crime scene investigation. The episode centered around a murdered South African rufugee who came to America and earned his citizenship. This investigation brought the team face to face with some ugly truths about war and children soldiers. One thing that keeps fans sitting at the edge of their seats is that the "Bones" team has a unique and respectful way of addressing issues that are very real and often controversal.
Fans got to see a peek of the budding relationship between Cam and Arastoo as the two work together to help solve the case. Arastoo's sweet nothings that he whispers when no one is around to here them but Cam was done very well. It made for an interesting contrast when the investigation hit very close to home for Arastoo - who had difficulty avoiding taking the war issue personally. The war also hit close to home for Bones and Booth. The only one who seemed unaffected was Sweets who managed to be the voice of reason for the couple he lives with. The heartbreaking story line continued to touch fan's emotional levels as the story unfolded over the hour. As the story continued, it was the victim's friend that identified a war criminal who was responsible for recruiting hundreds of child soldiers - a man that Booth recognized as the janitor in the victim's building. The war criminal was held on additional charges once they proved his identity with a voice recording. However, the war criminal was not the killer - it was Bones that found the missing clue that found the lawyer was the one who actually killed the victim in an effort to cover up his involvement in helping the war criminal become a citizen.
