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.

Error: 27min - 27:16, Canadian doctor discussing with Sweets, his right arm (paralyzed) is near his lap, and after Sweets discusses Brennan belittling Psychology, his right arm is now on the armrest of the sofa.

This episode was likely inspired by the dozen or so dismembered human feet that have washed up on the west coast of Canada and the United States since the summer of 2007.


The episode opens on two men walking along the US/Canada border on the St. Lawrence River in New York. One man is guiding the other when they stumble upon a pair of dismembered feet.

Cut to Angela walking into Hodgin's office. He tells her that he received a letter of acceptance into Columbia University for undergraduate studies in French Literature. He explains that it's not actually for him but Michelle Welton, Cam's daughter. They realize that Cam applied for her daughter behind her back and had the acceptance letter sent to the Jeffersonian to prevent her daughter from finding it. They agree never to raise their child like that and also on a disapproving look for Hodgins to give Cam when he returns the package to her. Hodgins gives Cam the disapproving look as he walks into her office to toss the package on her desk and Cam frustratedly explains it doesn't matter because Michelle has decided to go to community college in outer Mongolia to be with her boyfriend. Hodgins intensely gives her the disapproving look as he leaves Cam's office. Cam's face breaks out in a smile as she reads the acceptance.

Bones is on the site, learning that there are 11 pairs of feet. She meets Dr. Fillmore, a Canadian forensic podiatrist. He explains he can't use his right arm because it has randomly ceased to function. He seems a bit miffed that Dr. Brennan thoroughly disputed his research. When Brennan says the feet need to be taken to the Jeffersonian, he actually interrupts and says they will be taking the feet.(Likely as revenge on Brennan for disputing his research so hard she crippled him)
