Favorite Quotes:

* Sherlock: What you are describing is not a case, it is a wild good chase. Only at the end of a proper goose chase you get to eat a delicious goose.

* Joan: Do you want to help me or not?

* Sherlock: I urge you to have some professional pride.

* Joan: You have not left the house in a week and you’re beginning to smell like old mimeographs.

* Joan: The head wound is the cause of death and the reason we have helmet laws.

* Sherlock: When the one that you love is revealed to have a dark heart, it’s well, it’s excruciating. I speak from experience.

* Sherlock: At present Mr. Hardwick is either very difficult to reach or dead.

* Joan: Captain Gregson wants a body.

* Sherlock: Alive again, why can’t anybody be dead today?

* Sherlock: Well, you’re right Watson. Honesty, unquestionably the best policy.

Synopsis: A motorcycle lay off the road with a dead man next to it. Elsewhere, Joan is shopping with a friend. Her friend would like Joan to track down a one night stand for her. She asks Sherlock to assist her and he won’t have any of this case. Sherlock instead takes her to the morgue to look for a case. He plays a game of chess with the coroner, apparently he wins, as they are checking out each body. Sherlock pulls out the body that was next to the motorcycle. Sherlock believes he murdered someone the day he died. They take the case to Gregson. The dead man was an assassin in Warsaw. Sherlock believes he garroted someone the day he died. However, Gregson doesn’t have a dead body or missing person’s report so his hands are tied. The duo meets with his wife. They learn about a senior care facility he was trying to open. He tries in his own to comfort the grieving widow. Back at the brownstone Sherlock gives Joan some murder stats. They cover more territory on the case. Joan leaves to go work on her friend’s case. Sherlock texts her about the case. They go to Travis’s office and see video footage. Sherlock reads the lips on the video and discovers that foundation was being poured that day. When Sherlock looks in the car he determines that Travis isn’t dead. He finds him across the street shacked up. He was spending the $25,000 that Leo gave him from a loan shark. They take it to Bell, Sherlock believes it was stolen based on the age. Bell confirms that they were from a bank robbery in 2001. It’s linked to a Gertz, but the US Marshalls can’t find him. At the brownstone Sherlock announces he has found him. Joan got footage for her friend’s case and Sherlock admits that he slept with her friend. Joan is shocked and angry. They go and visit the loan shark. It turns out that after he loaned Leo money a man from Bratva came looking for him as well. They call the Captain. A whole team is sent to the scene of the motorcycle crash. There are 45 casings. They find the Bratva henchman dead and partially buried. He had been garroted. In the basement at the station Gregson discovers Sherlock listening to bees. He found out that “Leo” stole a large sum of money from the Bratva and that is why he fled to the states. Bell and Joan go back to the widow with an update. Sherlock receives a call from the morgue. The garrote on his neck matches the wounds on Leo’s hands. Also, the dead gang member was under psychiatric care. Sherlock goes to the shrink’s office with Joan, he threatens suicide to see him. They ask about his patient. After laying out the facts the doctor tells them what he can. Bell leads the charge to meet with Zubkov. Joan doesn’t like the bulletproof vests. He tells them he was in the hospital Sunday night because he got stabbed Saturday. Joan confirms his story and brings the police photos. Sherlock looks at the photos and something clicks. His widow is brought into the station. They show her the photo of the tourniquet and that it was her drape. She sold her husband out. She was with the man who was garroted. When he was killed she was with him. She fired the shots that caused Leo to crash and also the woman’s death. Leo’s widow makes a full confession. Joan meets her friend Jennifer. She tells her that Sherlock called her and apologized to her. However, Joan is still upset with him and gets a little bit of revenge back at the brownstone.

Favorite Quotes:

* Bucket: What the hell’s going on here, man?

* Duck: Saved a life there, Patrick.

* Stan: When Patrick and Kristen came running out of the mine, that’s the first time we ever saw that.

* Eddie: They were scared. So, yeah, it did startle me.

* Patrick: My gut is telling me that we honestly experienced a tragic event I think.

* Jamol: Where did you learn that?
Greybeard: I’m old.

* Greybeard: That’s the right choice. If you feel like somethings wrong, get out, leave.

Synopsis: The miners attempts to circumvent the ballroom have been a challenge. We pick up where the last episode ended…the blast has not gone off. It’s 150 pounds of explosives. Eddie suggests that they use Patrick’s robot to check on the explosives that didn’t go off. Stan asks Patrick if they can send in RIPA. The robot can check the fuses and explosives but also monitor for any paranormal activity at the same time. They get to the fuse. As they examine the fuse they get a drop in temperature and an EMF spike. The explosives start going off. The whole crew goes in to check it out. RIPA, though, is not doing well. The blast worked, but they uncovered another cave in. The miners exit the cave so Kristen and Patrick can do an investigation. A rock falls and hits Patrick on the leg. Kristen does a baseline sweep and Patrick sets up a laser grid. Patrick decides to investigate exactly where Stan told him not to because it’s not safe. He then goes back to where it’s safe and does an EVP session. Both of them hear a knocking sound. The EVP session continues and another rock falls. A third and then fourth rock falls. The rock falling intensifies and they run for the exit. As they exit they are met by Stan and Eddie. Kristen, panting, tells them both it’s caving in. Stan and Eddie head in to check it out. They don’t find any evidence of a cave in and thoroughly check everything. Stan and Eddie bring them back to the ball room to show them it was ok. The next day the miners are back to work. Greybeard and Jamol are looking for another vein for the crew to mine. Duck is feeling uneasy and contemplates tramping again. Larry arrives to try and deal with the trespasser. Larry tells the two one camera is not working. They decide to go through all the images. At first all they get are photos of deer. The camera that Larry thought was broken, its card is actually full. They have found a mysterious anomaly. It moves so it’s not a dead pixel. The two go back to the camera and try and figure out what’s going on. The miners prepare to blast for more ore. Kristen and Patrick do an investigation of the camera at night. They find nothing wrong with the camera. She takes a few photos with her camera of the same view, but gets normal photos. Patrick hears footsteps, but sees nothing on thermal. Kristen gets some EMF spikes. Patrick follows a sound into the woods and sees some weird on the thermal. Kristen’s readings keep spiking as she gets closer to a clearing. Patrick discovers a strange rock formation. He notices the rock formation lines up with where the trail cam is located. She notices a design on one of the rocks. Photos are not coming out of the rock, so Patrick gets paper and charcoal and does a rubbing. He thinks they are Chinese symbols. Kristen and Patrick head back to camp where the miners are sitting around a fire. They join them and tell them about the symbols. Stan tells them about Chinese miners in the area and how poorly they were treated. The next morning Eddie and Jamol find their hoses damaged. Eddie goes straight to the cook shack to tell Stan and Larry what’s going on. Back in the mine Bucket and Mikey are working on the dogleg to get around the ballroom. Patrick sends the etching to an expert. He also includes the EVP they could not identify. Kristen heads to the historical museum to research the Chinese miners. Toni states there was 2 to 3 thousand but there is no record because they were not included on any census. They were segregated and only allowed to mine claims that others had already mined and deemed worthless. They would stack the stone and make what was referred to as Chinese walls. Toni tells her that there are some walls still around that she can see. Patrick and Kristen update the guys on the latest evidence. First up is RIPA, the fuse and explosions. The camera seems to have a glitch. They move on to the EVP with falling rocks. Next they discuss the trail cam and the white vertical line and the massive number of images. Kristen then talks about the rock formation. Patrick had the symbols translated, it means “house of cremation.” The EVP they could not translate earlier means, “I’m lost.” At that moment something slams into the cook shack and everyone goes running. They don’t find anything, so they begin searching for a trespasser. They don’t find a trespasser either.

* Bones: I’m the authorities. Booth is the authorities.

* Angela: As far as I know, which is quite far believe me, no one has tried to kiss Brennan in this office and lived to tell about it.

* Angela: Liars! You just want to see what happens when you toss a frozen pig into a wood chipper.

* Bones: I know what it’s like to not know what happened. I know how painful that can be. I’m sorry.

The team disagrees. Bones wants to figure out where the unburned bone fragments came from. While Bones and Booth are in the bone room they get a visitor. His father has been missing.

Bones asks her team to help on these bone fragments. Bones meets with the son again. She tells him that current findings are consistent with a male in his father’s age range.
