A corpse is found in a popular dumping pool, apparently shot. It seemed a child, but Zach also finds adult, even aged traits. The only explanation is an aging disease, actually Werner's syndrome, which also affected the brain of Cynthia Cole's missing daughter. She falsely accused social worker Joe Mellon of abusing the girl. The real cause of death is a striking OD. Meawnhile, Max brings Bones things from her grandma. Booth must arrest him, but first has to prove his criminal identity. Zach declines being Hodgins' best man, to serve the nation, but there are more problems. Written by KGF Vissers

Strange main story but otherwise goog
17 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

The main story in this episode is about a young woman who is murdered. It's a bit odd since this person has an aging disease that also leaves her in a child-like state. The solving of this crime, as well as Brennan's tolerance of the murderer is very odd and disheartening.

This also covers the wedding of Jack and Angela. Both Booth and Brennan are asked to be the bride's maid/best man. There's a comical conversation as Booth and Brennan are in his car regarding his acceptance of the position. The wedding is interesting and there's a big twist at the end. My favorite part is the very, very end of the episode as Booth and Brennan face the minister themselves.

There's another sub-plot involving Brennan's father. Booth has a lot of conflict arresting Max since Brennan is his...well, neither of them know what he is...and he doesn't want to hurt Brennan. There's a touching scene at the wedding when Booth tells her what happened.

Interestingly, Booth was beaten pretty badly in a recent episode but showed no bruising. After his fight with max, Booth is sporting bruising on his face...

Great scenes among many of our favorite characters. I always love seeing Angela's father!!!
