A paint-ball team accidentally finds in a national park the consumed corpse of a woman, soon identified from dental records as the wife of protestant minister Joseph Serrano. She was declared missing six months ago, then returned with serious amnesia treated by eccentric specialist psychiatrist Dr. David Yarzick, and again recently. Further forensics on corpse and grave reveal traces of water-resistant burial and repeated forms of abuse and different times. Sweets also tries to counsel Booth and Bones as they bicker over the correct impact of their pregnancy on living arrangements and couple dynamics. Written by KGF Vissers

Special Agent Seeley Booth: Could Claire's injuries have been from a beating?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Possibly. But there's too much remodeling to be certain what caused them. Do you think that she was beaten?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No I don't want to. Her husband is a pastor.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Violence would be a logical extension of his belief. The Bible features a vengeful God who capriciously slaughters the creatures he creates. Sweets would characterize him as a sociopath.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Wait. God is not a sociopath!
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Let's just say, I don't want him babysitting for our child.

No national parks permit paintball weapons, yet alone discharging them within the boundaries ... who pays for cleaning the paint off of trees and rocks ? ... again, the writers are grasping for ideas to further an already dull show
