In Delaware bay, the decomposed corpse is found of Carlie Richardson, who had been missing for a year, her husband Kyle was released from custody because there was no evidence/body to convict him at that time. She was brutally beaten up and pregnant, but finding a fresh water fish proves that the body was moved. Booth meanwhile worries if his ex Rebecca Stinson's new boyfriend, Drew, is a good influence on their 4 year-old son Parker. Bones still mistrusts her new department chief Dr. Camille Saroyan. Kyle Richardson has fled, hitting his present girlfriend Karen Tyler, according to her to save her the risks of coming with him, she is soon caught on several lies. The evidence proves Kyle couldn't have done it; the corpse drifted naturally all the way from a creek in New Jersey. The evidence holds more surprises, such as a second baby. Written by KGF Vissers

When Brennan walks into the diner and over hears Booth talking to Parker about how humans are different than apes, he tells her he's talking to a 4 year old. The actor who portrayed Parker was actually 7 at the time the episode aired. See more »


(at around 2 mins) In the opening sequence Booth says that "the body washed up in the bay" and then a moment later Bones and Booth are shown driving west across the national mall (away from the Chesapeake Bay) as Bones says that taking "the I-70" will be faster. The I-70 runs west, and away from the Chesapeake Bay, out of Baltimore Maryland (approximately 40 miles north) and the I-270 is the spur just outside of Washington D.C. that connects to it, but that would take you northwest and also away from the Chesapeake Bay.

Bones deals with the remains of a woman whose body is found in the bay, along with the remains of an infant that turns out not to be hers. Booth goes in search of the husband, who has vanished. Things get even more complicated when it is discovered the woman did not die in salt water. And Bones clashes with Cam yet again. The plot line is based on the Lacey Peterson case. The killer is revealed a tad early, unfortunately. But this gives Bones an opportunity later to ponder the mysteries of motherhood. She has a great line when a group of moms try to explain to Booth the bonding that takes place between a mother and her child,.
