The corpse of a med student, missing only two days, is found on Halloween in Sleepy Hollow, next to an iron casket, containing a colonial age British officer, whose decapitation however is recent. Historian Ichabod Crane and Lieutenant Abbie Mills claim the cases and the ancient corpse. Ichabod identifies the officer as a British commanding general, but is found to have the exact handwriting of Washington's captain aid. The med student's case may involve a strict-Catholic lover and cahoots in a flat-lining experiment. Written by KGF Vissers

Oddest of the Odd

No spoilers, but no love, either.

Bones is a comedy drama mystery that stands alone in the over-the- air television marketplace. It is so well written that a few words, a look, or a small gesture can speak volumes. The plots are complex and cleverly conceal the one who-done-it in plain sight and use science and deductive reasoning to reveal motive. They get to the bottom of everything. One imagines that there must have been some behind the scenes eye-rolling as this episode was underway as science had to either ignore or validate the supernatural nonsense that seeped in from Sleepy Hollow.

The actors aren't the same as their characters, and while early network promotions suggested the actors enjoyed the merger, the characters in this episode worked so much against type that there should have been resistance when the Sleepy Hollow crew were invited onto the set. The scientific and procedural verisimilitude of Bones went out the window when the fluffy nonsense of time travel and the undead came for a Halloween visit to solve a mystery or two.

In a program that prides itself on laying the groundwork, there seems to have been some back story between the FBI agents Booth and Abby whats-her-name. Who is Corbyn? I don't watch Sleepy Hollow to know who they were talking about, and Bones gave us no clue as to those conversations - I thought perhaps they were discussing contemporary British politics.

In the future if you've viewed this Bones episode and wonder about the rest of the story, don't bother to hunt down the Sleepy Hollow episode find the few Bones and Booth scenes. They were punting - there is nothing to see there.

The viewers of Bones are loyal, so an occasional "odd" episode won't cause them to flee the enterprise. In hindsight fans will be able to watch this episode as a mystery regarding a dead woman and dismiss the Sleepy Hollow nonsense in the archives as Halloween static. The seasonal pranks were clever - I hope the writers visit Christine's school homeroom one day soon to show us just how those homemade treats from Dr. Brennan are received by the teacher and kids.
