* Booth: Somebody was dismembered and fed to a bear?
Bones: That’s one possibility.
* Bones: I imagine I’m treated differently than you because I have an indispensable skill.
Booth: Oh right, indispensable– I don’t need you.
* Booth: You know you’re a smartass, you know that?
Bones: Objectively I would say I’m very smart. Although it has nothing to do with my ass.
* Bones: Don’t forget Charlie, the heroine always catches the bad guy.
Synopsis: A vet performs a necropsy on a bear. The ranger professes to already know the cause of death. As she goes through the bears stomach contents she finds the bones of a human hand. A photo of the hand is sent to the Jeffersonian. The case got bumped to booth in the hopes that Bones would assist. She determines, just by looking at the photo, that the man was murdered and the body was cut up with a saw. Booth tells Bones they are heading to Washington state to investigate. They bicker on the car on the way to the scene. Bones examines the Bones at the coroners office. She shows the kerf marks to them, that they are saw marks. She sends photos to the Jeffersonian and then goes to the shipping center to ship the bones there as well. Zach analyzes the kerf marks in the photo. Angela has the photos uploaded to her main frame to build a 3D image. Booth talks with the Sheriff, who says their biggest problem is poachers. Bones joins them. She wants to check the scat. At the Jeffersonian a package is delivered, Hodgins jumps in to sign for it so he can flirt. Booth and Bones are in the forest with the Ranger. He takes them to where the bear was shot. And Booth finds a big pile of bear scat. Bones collects some and drops it off at the shipping center to sent the bear poop to the Jeffersonian. Zack and Bones teleconference about bite marks on the bones. It turns out there the bit marks are human, there is a cannibal. Booth and Bones discuss the cannibal situation while the Sheriff tries to eat his lunch, but he loses his appetite. At the lab Hodgins, Angela and Zack discuss the cannibal too. Zack gets called away and he receives the bear scat package. Bones talks with Dr. Rigby and they discuss the cannibal situation as well. Hodgins goes through the poop. He finds some bones and a small piece of skin that has a tattoo. Angela tries to piece it together and recreate it. She identifies the tattoo and teleconferences with Booth, Bones and the Sheriff. The Sheriff runs a new search, including the tattoo information, and they are able to identify him. He wanted to be a ranger and had interned with him. The ranger takes off and Booth goes after him. Bones and the Sheriff search his place. They find knives and saws. They take an apple with his tooth impressions to compare. Bones opens a locked freezer and finds what looks like chopped up frozen bodies. The ranger gets away. Bones talks to Angela and asks for a rush on the meat/body parts she found. Angela insists that she and Booth go have some fun. They go to a local bar. Bones dances with Charlie and enjoys his biceps and triceps. Multiple guys cut in and dance with Bones. Booth explains that each of the guys are hitting on her. Back at the lab Hodgins is looking a spore that Angela thinks is pretty. It’s from a Douglas Fir tree. Back in the forest they go back to where Booth lost the ranger. At the lab Angela gives her results to Zack. Hodgins found beetle dust. Booth follows a trail in the woods that leads to the ranger. Zack calls Bones and tells her the meat is Black Bear, not human. Bones announcer that the ranger is the poacher. The area where the bones were eaten is infested with beetles. The ranger takes them to the tree. The bears GPS confirms that the bear was at that location. Booth finds a strange stone layout. She sends photos to the Jeffersonian. She looks around and finds several buried bodies, both in pieces with organs missing. The wheel is a native American-ish symbol. But the export says that it’s all wrong. Bad news, two more bodies are needed to complete the ritual. Since no more bodies were found that means two more will be killed. In the coroners office Bones works up the two bodies. The ranger reveals that Adam and Charlie were both seeing the vet. The Sheriff admits that he sees her too. Zach calls Bones and lets her know the rangers teeth don’t match that on the bones. Bones and Booth question the vet. She is drunk and admits she’s seeing about 6 guys in town. Angela calls Bones to get her to set up her laptop, Zack wants her to look at something. The bones were split using a rib spreader. They go to see Dr. Rigby and Booth gives Bones his back up gun. They find Dr. Rigby putting one of the body’s into the incinerator. Bones shuts it off. Dr. Rigby starts to ramble insanely and Bones knocks him out with a bedpan. At the lab Zack and Hodgins face off for the delivery. Angela comes to watch the show. However, the delivery lady picks Angela, surprising them all. Back at the local bar Bones and Booth discuss Rigby. He has a prion disease in his brain.
