Synopsis: Bones and Booth are in an elevator. When they exit, it’s a massive amount of carnage. A representative from the State Department brings them up to speed. Cam joins them. She needs Bones to identify a person who is now visually unidentifiable. She also finds additional bones that don’t belong to any known victims. She finds an additional set of remains in what’s left of a chandelier. The extra body is that of a female. Data comes in on the woman, but still no id on her. At the FBI, Booth is informed by State he has to be extra nice to Judge Ramos. They question the judge. Hodgins asks Angela to pull up all the photos he took at the scene. Zack gives Cam a rundown of all the damage to the woman. He does get a name, Lisa Winneker. Booth goes to visit her mother. She knows some vague details about who her daughter was dating. Angela has managed to find the point of origin for the fire. She is able to determine that a person was there during the first episode but not the second. Booth and Bones talk to Lisa’s coworkers. She wasn’t working that night but instead there with a date. While they are there the bartender tells them the man Lisa was with walks in. Turns out he’s the judge’s son. For Zack to determine the cause of death he needs answers about the fire. The fire investigation is complete. There was no bomb, it was a combination of alcohol and other combustibles. Hodgins and Zack have built a small scale, 1/1000th size explosion of the fire. It goes wrong and it’s a lot bigger than they thought it would be. But it proves that someone killed Lisa and then started the fire to cover it up. They had no idea it was going to cause such an explosion. Cam calls Booth to give him the news, Lisa was strangled. Bones finds something odd and Zack is going to take a closer look. Booth shows the jewelry to the jeweler. It was not cheap, $800,000. He also recognizes Lisa. Bones visits Booth at work. Their prime suspect couldn’t have committed the murder because of his injury. The two meet with the State Department agent. He just gives them a bunch of bull. Bones gives a lengthy speech and it gives Booth an idea. Hodgins determines that Lisa was strangled with something silk. Zack determines one of her fingers was broken a few weeks ago and she might have been wearing a splint. Lisa’s mother advised her to get pregnant, so the rich guy wouldn’t break up with her. The hospital forms show that it was Judge Ramos’s husband that took her to the hospital and she had nothing to do with the son. However, the whole family is about to get on a plane to go back to Columbia. Booth asks Hodgins to stop the plane from taking off. He’s successful. At the lab, the State still stonewalls. Zack finds something odd and tells Cam. She yells for Bones. As the three talk it over they get close to the answer but are still searching. Angela realizes it’s 3” stiletto heels. She also notices that the Judge has a silk wrap that is missing after the fire. Booth and Bones go to the diner for food. Cam joins them with all the evidence. She has manipulated the evidence to frame the Judge’s son and get the Judge to confess. Bones and Booth meet with Judge Ramos one last time about Lisa’s murder. All the evidence will be turned over to Columbia. The State reminds her that her government is not on her side. She waives her diplomatic immunity to get a fair trail in the US, versus a death sentence from the cartels in Columbia. While Booth and Bones overlook the lab, several men in black come and take Hodgins, he’s thrilled.

They visit the tunnels with her. Booth tries to interview Harold. Booth tries to arrest him and Bones stops him. Harold has Marnie’s video camera and Booth arrests him. In interrogation, Harold tells them he had not seen her in days and he found her dead and covered in rats. He believes that he gave her something that resulted in her death. At the lab, the team pours over the remains. Angela brings Bones sushi. Angela is worried about her safety. Zack reconstructed the skull. Among her remains are a coin. Hodgins takes it to Dr. Goodman. He thinks it’s valuable and merits reconstruction by Angela. Her scan shows it’s dated 1778. Goodman becomes excited. He tells Bones it’s a vault seal. He says several vaults are unaccounted for underground. Booth interviews Harold again. He confirms that coin is what he gave Marnie. He refuses to show them where he found it. Hodgins calls Bones and lets her know that Marnie was in a different tunnel before she died. She had diamond dust on her. The two talk to the social worker again. Back at the lab Angela recreates the skull injuries. Marnie was killed by a single blow to the head. Bones and Booth talk to a pair of guys who gave her climbing lessons. They chat with the fiancé again about things he left out. Booth things the motive is jealously. Bones asks Harold to show them where the treasure is. Harold take them to the perimeter. He points to the end of the tunnel. They follow it and find a cave in. Bones goes closer and finds a skeleton. They take it back to the lab and everyone, including Dr. Goodman, looks at the body. The body is from the civil war era. Bones asks Angela to talk to Harold and do a sketch of the blonde woman. Angela meets with him at the FBI office. She gets him talking about what the woman looks like. Zack works on the weapon used to kill Marnie. Booth comes in with Marnie’s footage provided by the fiancé. The footage proves the two climbing instructors lied about going underground with Marnie. Zack and Bones think the weapon as a climbing act. Angela’s sketch turns out to be a Rayburn per Dr. Goodman. He identifies the sketch as a missing painting worth over $200,000. Goodman gives Angela all the schematics that he gathered. She puts it in the Angela-tron. Goodman and Bones start narrowing it down. Between everyone’s deductions and inductions they find a way to get to the treasure. Bones is quite nervous and asks for a gun because she feels unsafe. They go through another tunnel. Bones possibly finds the missing piece of Marine’s skull. They both hear something. The duo catch them both in the act of stealing the contents of the vault. They make the arrest and learn her killed her all at once. Back in Bones office Goodman talks with them and congratulates them on the find. Angela comes in and announces that Harold is being released. Booth, Bones and Angela accompany him home.
