Bones - The Don't in the Do

When blue-stained pigeons and body parts start falling from the sky the FBI calls in its best to solve the case. While Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) attempts to discover what turned the corpse blue, Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) question the dead hairdresser's three girlfriends (Kristi Clainos, Emily Nelson, Claudia Choi), his co-workers (Jai Rodriguez, Neil Hopkins), and employer (Jamie Elle Mann) about who might have wanted the man dead.

With the help of Vaziri (Pej Vahdat) Bones is able the man was scalped shortly before his death. The investigation also uncovers the hairdresser's drug habit, a wealthy overattentive client (Jennifer O'Dell), and the man's supplier (Ravi Patel) who Booth and Sweets (John Francis Daley) catch fleeing from his shop with a bag of hair from more than 25 corpses.

With one of the season's largest groups of guest-stars the mystery of who killed the hairdresser was far too easy to figure out. Vaziri provides some comic relief with his euphoria over being published but it runs out of steam well before the rug gets pulled from underneath him. Booth and Bones' squabbles over her body image after the pregnancy likewise is given a little too much focus, but it does lead to a pair of awkward conversations between Booth and Sweets which work well.
