Dismembered remains are discovered in several mailing boxes at a dead letter office, and the Jeffersonian team identifies the victim as an employee of a local Ship 'n' Print, where the staff recently split the winnings of a lottery prize. The team uncovers a complicated love triangle between two married employees and the victim, and while motive points to the husband, a critical clue leads them to solve the crime definitively. Meanwhile, Booth's grandfather breaks some unexpected news, the death of Booth's father and Special Agent Genny Shaw learns the importance of teamwork. The episode ends with Brennan and Booth sitting next to each other as Booth sheds tears upon the memories of him and his father put into photographs, cards and last but not the least the tickets that told the number of the two chairs his father and him sat on. Turns out Booth got the same chairs back home.
