An Egyptian scientist comes over pretty angry over the mummy, especially considering there was a giant ruby inside of his heart. That's what the murderer was probably after, and she's all like 'you guys ruined priceless artifacts, meh!' She and Brennan make friends after they suspect her of the murder, and they geek out some more over the history. It turns out there was an inscription inside the mummy about him being 'guiltless,' which apparently means he didn't deserve the death he had. It could change the story of this figure significantly and they're very excited about it, although as expected Booth doesn't really care about that so much. He's more interested in the murderer.
Who happens to be ... drum roll please ... her supervisor. He helped Booth and Brennan earlier to get all of her files (some were stolen), but it turns out he hid the cat scans which showed the ruby in the first place. He needed the money. Surprising. It was nice to see Brennan back in her historical world, since one of the best parts about her character is the anthropological background. Daisy and Sweets fight the whole time and then make up in one of the special ancient vaults. Angela and Hodgins used to love it down there too. I hope someone goes and cleans that area regularly, because if not ... eew. Brennan has a party to celebrate her find and she invites Booth. They almost kiss. We fans sigh and are still sucked in to this romance.
You know what would be interesting? Seeing Brennan jealous of Booth for once! She never really seems to care who he dates, but it has been awhile so it would be interesting to have the shoe on the other foot for once.
Best part of the episode: "What goes on between us is ours." Boreanaz just really sold that line with his intensity.
Worst part of the episode: Daisy is still really, really annoying.
See you in November!
