The Pain in the Heart is the fifteenth and final episode of the third season of Bones.


The shocking conclusion to the Gormogon series. Dr. Brennan receives a mandible from the Gormogon in a package, and while trying to discover the origins of the tooth markings, Zack Addy is severely injured in an explosion. In the commotion, the widow's son skeleton is stolen from the Gormogon vault within the Jeffersonian. Could the Gormogon be working in the Jeffersonian? Meanwhile, further analyzing of the mandible leads to the discovery that the Gormogon, or his apprentice, has been hiding more bones in the Jeffersonian. The crew begins their investigation to find out who among them is working with the Gormogon. What they find changes their lives forever.

Ouch! Edit

  • Bones smacks a criminal, whom Booth is after, and also Booth after he lies to her! (Booth lies, not the criminal)
  • Zack's hands are very bloodly and damaged after a lab explosion!


  • Booth is shown to live in a detached house, but he's later proved to live in an apartment.
  • The scene where Hodgins visits Zack in the hospital and wakes up Angela who was staying with Zack Hodgins pushes Zack's pain button, a PCA which stands for Patient Control Analgesic. However he pushes it 3 times within a few minutes, a true PCA would have a time limit on it, usually 6-8 minutes, so you can only push it once until the time limit is up. It's made this way so the patient doesn't overdose.


  • In this episode Booth is shown reading a Green Lantern comic book, David Boreanaz who plays Agent Booth voiced the character Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern in Justice League: The New Frontier which released earlier the same year as this episode.
  • In The Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond Zack is shown wearing gloves all the time which Hodgins states is because of the explosion. Presumably the damage to his hands somehow requires him to need gloves after this episode.


  • Cam: (after Zack is exposed) Wow, I did not see that coming!
