New Show Recap: Bones, 9.07, “The Nazi on the Honeymoon”

Booth and Brennan are on their honeymoon in Argentina and Brennan is finding it hard to relax. She buzzkills Booth’s plans to go to some waterfall pool with information about said pool’s fecal content, but when Booth asks what she would like to do, she takes him to a morgue to see remains of The Disappeared. Local doctor Letitia Perez throws down the gauntlet by saying how much she is able to discover without fancy machines. Booth almost gets Brennan out, but Brennan spots that one of the victims is not like the others — it’s a recent body, not one of The Disappeared. The crew goes to local Inspector Raphael Valenza, who is star struck at meeting the real “Agent Andy.” (Remember how Brennan writes books? Funny how that hasn’t been mentioned in a while.) Valenza is excited that Booth will be assisting on this case. Worst. Honeymoon. Ever.

The victim is identified as a ninety-year-old named Miguel, but the widow wants to talk about Agent Andy. She says that Miguel went away all the time, and she never knew why. Money is ruled out as a motive. It turns out that Miguel was all cash, and the widow has nothing now. Booth and Inspector Valenza find Miguel’s car, which is mostly stripped, but Booth finds a hide-a-key. At the same time that Brennan calls Booth with news that their victim had signs of exposure to a gas commonly used in concentration camps, Booth finds the room that the key is for. And it’s full of Nazi paraphernalia and works of art. Wow, Desaparecidos and Argentina’s reputation as a hiding hole for fleeing Nazis? I’m sure this episode will go over well in Argentina.

Once they realize that a load of Nazi gold was stolen during the murder, Booth and Inspector Valenza track down the fenced gold. It leads back to Miguel’s wife, who still claims innocence. She’s arrested and Brennan is pushed back onto her honeymoon by Dr. Perez… a little too eagerly, really. They shake hands, but Brennan feels something in the handshake that reminds her of the victim. She goes to Booth and Inspector Valenza to tell them that Dr. Perez is the victim’s granddaughter. He had shown her the vault and said she would have all of the gold when he was gone. She had spent her life identifying the victims of the Dirty War and couldn’t bear knowing that her grandfather was responsible for an even worse atrocity. She’s going to jail, but she has no regrets.

The B-Plot

Angela and Hodgins are house and baby-sitting. Michael and Christine play together so well that Hodgins is thinking that they should totally have another kid. Although, it feels like they *have* had another kid since Christine looks older than Michael. Whatever. Five minutes later, it’s a different story at bedtime. Their desire for more kids changes again when they see the kids playing quietly together. If they can’t decide after babysitting two kids for three days, maybe they should sleep on it a while.
