[S6E17] The Feet On The Beach BEST
After a flood on the U.S.-Canada border, eight pairs of dismembered feet are discovered, with seven being identified as research corpses from a nearby university body farm. Brennan forms an alliance with Canadian forensic podiatrist Dr. Douglas Filmore when he takes the remains to Canada. Meanwhile, Cam continues to make college plans for her daughter which she may not like.
[S6E17] The Feet on the Beach
Two cops walk along the U.S.-Canadian border. One of the guards trips, seemingly over his own two feet. "Those aren't my feet!" he yells. Sure enough, a decomposed pair of severed feet rest on the ground below. Cut to the Jeffersonian, where Hodgins has accidentally opened an acceptance letter from Columbia ... meant for Michelle but addressed to Camille. Angela quickly puts two and two together: Camille got Michelle into Columbia behind the teen's back. She doesn't want her adopted daughter going to some small school in Maine where Michelle's BF happens to attend.
Back at the murder site, Bones lifts the pair of decomposed feet ... and then finds another. There are apparently multiple people missing their appendages. Dr. Douglas Filmore, who calls himself a "forensic podiatrist," appears on the scene. He knows Bones, who points out no such technical position exists. In other words, Filmore is a regular podiatrist who occasionally helps out the police. Filmore sarcastically thanks Bones for making the distinction. Bones, of course, has no clue she has insulted the man. Filmore then explains his life's work was savagely refuted by Bones in one of her recent articles. As a result, his right arm no longer works. Seriously.
Cut to the diner, where Sweets and Booth tell Bones she should apologize for being so cruel to Filmore in the article. Again, Bones doesn't think she was mean at all -- just logical. In the meantime, Camille and Angela have determined eight pairs of feet were found. Hodgins enters with news: the same substance was found on all the feet. So the victims were murdered in the same place before they were dumped in the river. Just then, Filmore wanders into the lab. Because many of the feet were found on the Canadian side of the border, he has obtained permission to work with the team. "I wasn't sure you were actually going to join us because of ..." says Camille before trailing off. Filmore nods. Apparently, everyone is aware of how badly Bones embarrassed Filmore.
Sweets, meanwhile, interviews a mental patient who swapped shoes at the dump site just eight days ago (the poor guy just removed the feet before taking the shoes -- and threw up in the process). Angela uses that information to test rainfall and wind patterns eight days ago -- and determines the feet came from a university down river in New York. Bones' eyes light up. The same university is one of only a few to have a body farm. "So anthropologists can study decomposition," she explains. Booth clarifies: "So you're saying they have a field of dead people." Exactly. Turns out the field flooded in the rainfall and seven bodies washed away. Alas, the team found eight pairs of feet.
Cut to Filmore, who has pinpointed the unidentified pair of feet and determined they were separated from the remainder of the victim's body about two months ago. Hodgins then arrives with the shoes the mental patient took from the crime scene. Filmore does some fancy "foot" work using Angela's computer to match a digital recreation of the feet with the indentations in the shoes. "These are definitely our victim's shoes," Filmore concludes. Angela is impressed. Camille, meanwhile, comforts Michelle, who cries uncontrollably while explaining she recently broke up with her BF. "I can't go to the same college that Derek goes to," Michelle cries. She is despondent as schools are no longer accepting applications. Of course, Camille is secretly overjoyed.
Back at the Jeffersonian, Filmore examines the bones of the victim's feet and discovers one piece is slightly smaller than it should be. The shaving is artificial -- and not consistent with a different wound found. "Dylan was attacked with two different weapons?" Angela asks. Not only that, but Filmore suggests the wounds indicate that the weapons were power tools. Once again, Angela is super impressed. Later, Filmore examines all the power tools from the body farms. It doesn't take him long to realize the cuts could only be consistent with connected blades -- and grass in the remains indicates a riding lawnmower. Hodgins then enters with news: the many different bugs found on the feet all had eaten a specially produced insect food. It was spread on the body to attract as many bugs as possible -- so that the body would be quickly devoured. "Hastening decomposition and completely obscuring time of death," Camille notes.
B&B then interview Norman, who explains he was traveling in Finland at the time of Dylan's death. It's an awfully convenient alibi for someone who would know how to use the insect food to obscure time of death -- and then plan a trip accordingly. Booth produces a receipt for the insect feed signed by Norman. "Dylan contaminated your body with his marijuana field," Bones says. "That was your thesis project." Norman admits the truth: Dylan ruined his projects, so Norman got on the mower to cut all the weed. "I told him to move, but he didn't," Norman cries. Dylan's feet were sliced and he bled to death.
Captain Hook runs through the jungle with several howling and torch-bearing Lost Boys hot on his trail. One of them orders his fellows to "get the pirate" while another screams for them to "make him pay." Hook escapes to the beach. The first boy soon spots the captain through the sparse trees and points Hook out to the rest of the pack. Hook trips, landing at the bottom of a seaside hill in a heap. The Lost Boys surround the captain on the muddy shore. In an attempt to reason with the rowdy teens, Hook reveals that he has treasure and rum buried all over the island. "Any of you lads old enough to drink rum?" he proposes. Their leader steps forward, spear in tow, and clarifies they only want one thing: revenge for what happened to Pan. Hook acknowledges this. Realizing engaging them in battle is his only way out, Hook draws his cutlass. He implies he would prefer to get this over with. He knows his prospects are slim due to their numbers.
In present-day Mills Mausoleum, Snow stares down at the now sleeping David. Regina asks if Snow's sure she doesn't want to tell Emma what she's doing. Snow responds that she knows what their daughter would say: she wouldn't let them take the risk. "I agree with David. We have to do this now." She then rises to her feet. Zelena, standing by a steaming cauldron, nods as she makes her way over to Charming. Snow is curious about how this works. Regina apologizes in advance, saying that what's about to happen will hurt. Regina rips out Snow's half-heart at the same time that Zelena rips out David's. Regina points out that the sleeping curse manifests as dark globs. She explains that the curse's split between both halves of their shared heart keeps them from being awake at the same time. She places Snow's heart into the cauldron. Zelena puts David's half in there too. Zelena adds that if this potion clears up the darkness then Snow and Charming should be able to make them all wretch with their sweet nothings in no time.
Tiger Lily informs him that there's great darkness on the horizon though, so if Hook doesn't do what she asks then the savior will die. This grabs his interest. "The savior?" "Yes!" Tiger Lily exclaims, "A great hero, unlike you!" Hook explains that they're talking about the same woman. The Native American woman appears a tad taken aback by the idea that Hook fell in love with the savior. He confirms it to be true and implores Tiger to check his inside pocket. She moves forward and does so, and soon pulls out the engagement ring that Hook purchased for Emma. He explains as much. Tiger Lily smiles, then gesturing the "weapon" she totes as she insists he needs to get it to her. She unties him as she explains that the Black Fairy is in Storybrooke and this is the only hope the savior has of defeating her. Hook wishes it were that simple. He explains there seems to be a curse keeping him from finding his way back home unless she has some magic that can lift it. After helping him to his feet, Tiger Lily is sad to express that she doesn't... but Pan might. "Where might that demon have kept his magic?" Hook wonders. Tiger Lily says that it would be at his old camp. But it's overrun by Lost Boys, and they outnumber them twenty to one. "Aye, is that all?" the pirate asks, fetching his cutlass, and Tiger Lily appears impressed as he declares, "Then I feel sorry for those lads. Because they don't stand a chance."
Emma lands with Hook atop her back in the loft as the door disappears. Henry and Regina help them to their feet. The savior asks if Killian's alright. The captain confirms, then wonders how she rescued him. Emma explains that they got his message. She places the hook back into its rightful socket at the end of Killian's left arm. The pirate apologizes to her. Wincing, Hook admits that he should have told Emma what he did to her grandfather all those years ago. Killian admits he should never have even considered running away. "It's okay. I didn't exactly make it easy for you to tell me the truth," Emma says. The Savior tells Hook to come with her so that they can get him cleaned up. Killian retorts he has to do something before he gets pushed into another portal. He reaches into his inside pocket and pulls out his engagement ring. He claims that this time, he'll do it the right way. Regina, who has the wand, ushers Henry to one side to give the couple some privacy.
David and Snow turn to each other overjoyed. They utter each other's names before finally sitting up and reuniting in a passionate kiss. "You did it," he assumes, proud, only for her to have to reveal, "I didn't do anything..." They then look around in horror to realize that everyone who drank from the goblet is now asleep on the floor. All their family and friends. And they remove themselves from the mattress as they look around in utter dread. "No... no!" Snow cries. David crouches down at the side of Emma and Hook, reaching out to his daughter and whispering her name. Emma comes to. She smiles up at her dad, as does he, thrilled that she's alright and that she managed to wake them up. David helps Emma to her feet, he asks her how she did it. Emma shares a hug with her mother as she responds that it was easy - they all shared a tiny bit of their curse. Snow appears stunned as the rest of the townspeople soon start to wake up as well. Regina comes to in her desk chair, immediately seeing the awake Snow and David. David aids Hook to his feet. 041b061a72
