Bones treatment of him in the beginning is not religious bigotry. She views ALL religions as illogical. If he had been a Catholic needing to go to mass at dusk or a Jew who refused to work on Saturday or [insert religious observance here], she'd have been no different. The Parker storyline was hilarious. I especially like that the paints were still on his face during dinner with Bones. I like the argument Sweets and Bones were having about psych v. anthro. And Bones refusal to acknowledge the soft sciences as true science. Technically, there were 4 people responsible for the death. He wouldn't have died if not for his wife using the saltpeter.

Another great show! It was reaffirmed through Parker's concern about his Dad not having a girl friend that what children are talking about is not necessarily what we think it is! I think Bones got to the root of this in a mighty fine way!

I loved how they handled the story line around the Muslim lab assistant. Last year I was really turned off by Bones' treatment of him and his religion. I thought it came dangerously close to religious bigotry. Beautiful this time!
