"The Secret in the Soil" Season 3, Episode 4

I really thought tonight's episode was going to give us some more clues about the season-long serial-killing cannibal hunt. But despite "cooked" bodies and multiple victims popping up, tonight's supposedly cold-blooded perp turned out to be a young girl in the wrong place with the right reasons - trying to protect her mom's honor from her cheating pop. Did anyone else totally call it early that the killer was Kat Curtis? I find it's always easy to jump to conclusions early on in the episode that the killer has to be a calculating menace, some deranged and brilliant mind plotting his/her murders with stealth. So when it ends up being an otherwise innocent person caught in an unfortunate circumstance, I can't help but feel deflated. That's similar to what often happens on another favorite show of mine, Law & Order: SVU - when someone tries to do what they think is the right thing but winds up in the completely opposite predicament, it's hard to feel like justice was really served. Also reminiscent of SVU, their higher-ups are questioning B&B's relationship. Are they too close? Is their relationship getting in the way of their jobs? Luckily, their youngin' doc is finding that's not the case. But can I see a show of hands of the folks who wish it were? No sign yet of where the cannibal case is headed, who's going to play Angela's hubby, or whether Zackaronie is going to be making some serious changes in his approach to work. But next week's be-costumed Halloween episode will probably have all our eyeballs falling to the floor. And in case you haven't caught them yet, (shameless plug alert!) you can see a few choice pics of the squints' costumes in the Oct. 22 issue of TV Guide. Ooh, I'm excited.

Premise: A scientist with an 'uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim's bones' solves murders in a procedural series inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. Scientist Brennan is often teamed with FBI Special Agent Booth, who mistrusts science and believes evidence should come from the living. The Brennan-Booth pair have drawn favorable comparisons to Scully and Mulder of 'The X-Files.'
