Zack updates Cam, the man was dragged and his bones were weakened. Hodgins narrowed down the time frame of the smelting of the object used to kill McCort. Dr. Wyatt and Bones discuss her getting kicked out. She wants to know what he does in the interrogation room. She wants to actually get inside Booth’s head so she could understand. He smiles as she heads out to meet Booth. The two head back to the church. While Booth distracts Bones she heads up to the alter and finds the chalice. She thinks it’s the murder weapon. It gets taken back to the lab. Hogdins confirms it’s the murder weapon. Cam has learned McCort was poisoned. The two go to the wrestling lesson. Booth poses some tough questions to him. He takes offense. At the diner, Booth and Bones continue to argue non-stop over the case. Dr. Wyatt joins them mid-fight. He explains that neither is comfortable in the others environment. He also points out that Bones might have chosen to not sail off with Sully because of Booth. He then tells them both that they have issues they need to work on. He then leaves and the two talk. It sparks an idea about Father Matt in Bones mind, that he is being poisoned. Cam tests him and it’s the same poison that was given to Father McCort. Bones tells Angela Dr. Wyatt’s theory and thinks its kind of crap. She tells Bones she’s scared to move in with Hodgins. Bones immediately tells her she’ll call the doctor. They bring the older priest in for more questioning. When he rebuffs the poisoning, Bones is surprised. But when asking for other suspects he immediately confesses. Booth doesn’t believe him. Booth gets the truth from him. He wants to take the confession of the killer. He does so in the interrogation room. He tells her his truth as well. That he doesn’t like Father Matt because he was sent there to replace him. She seems shocked to realize that she is going to have to answer for her crimes. She doesn’t realize they are crimes. The older priest fetches Booth and he just looks quite sad. Booth goes in and arrests her. Bones takes Angela to see Dr. Wyatt at the diner. When Angela pays him a compliment via Bones he decides to help. He tells her to wait until both closets are overrun by each others clothes.
