Taking pity on Sweets (John Francis Daley) who has been living out of his office since his sudden break-up with Daisy (Carla Gallo), Booth (David Boreanaz) invites the shrink to stay with Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth until he finds a new apartment. Although Sweets is welcome into their home, his arrival does cause a few uncomfortable moments (including Bones’ dancing). Meanwhile, the Jeffersonian team begins looking into the remains of a 20 year-old woman whose skin was eviscerated and body was torn apart while she was still alive.
While Angela (Michaela Conlin) reconstructs the victim’s face by examining the numerous shreds of facial skin found on the scene leading to correctly identifying the victim as the co-owner of an organic apple grocery, Bones, Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), and Fisher (Joel David Moore) attempt to discover what type of deep slicing, non-serrated blade was used to kill and dismember the victim.
Suspects in the case include the victim’s business partner (Galadriel Stineman), the woman’s uncle (Abraham Benrubi), a local butcher (Leif Gantvoort) with a crush on the victim, and a doctor (James Patrick Stuart) with an unusual fetish. Booth discovers the victim was working secretly as a call girl and Fisher notices the murderer’s method of killing mimics that of Jack the Ripper. However, the true motives for the murder, and the method in which the victim was dismembered, actually have a far more reasonable explanation.
