Brennan and Booth are called to investigate what appears to be charred human remains on an electrical fence. The mysterious corpse is later determined to be a mummified Egyptian royal on loan to the Jeffersonian. The anthropological mystery has Brennan in a tizzy, and when the Jeffersonian curator prepping the mummy for exhibition is murdered, the team suspects foul play. Brennan's investigation of the curator sheds new light on the life of the Egyptian royal, turning their case into one of historic proportions. Meanwhile, Brennan goes on a date with Booth's supervisor and former intern, and Sweets' girlfriend Daisy Wick returns to the Jeffersonian. Written by Fox Publicity

In the intro, night guard tosses coins onto the fence around the transformer causing sparks and later gets shocked by touching it. Electromagnetic field of the operational transformer can induce electric current, but it is too low to cause sparks as shown in the scene and way to weak to cause shock. Also, the EM field is also too weak to rip metal flashlight from guard's hand. Furthermore, according to OSHA rules, any enclosure marked with 'high voltage' signs cannot be electrified itself and only act as a barrier protecting the electrified equipment from accidental access. If the fence has been electrified by design, it would have been protected by another fence and the night guard would have not been allowed inside such perimeter. See more »

Mummy dearest
20 October 2009 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

B&B have a look at what at first appears to be the charred remains of a young man. Turns out it is a mummy, and at least 3,000 years old. It has been stolen from a museum, and something removed from the chest. Angela plays a crucial role in helping Bones determine what was taken, and why. This is a tricky episode, and the killer is not who you think it is. Watch carefully for the clues to lead you to the right person. B&B have a very romantic moment that is of course nipped in the bud by the sudden arrival of her crew. The scene is so well done, it took me back to similar "almost there" moments in several romantic flicks of the 1930s and '40s. And it is set in a darkened museum, of all places.
