    BONES Episode No.3 Synopsis: 'The Finger in the Nest'

    Wednesday, September 17 - 8:00pm ET/PT

    When Booth's son Parker finds a severed corpse finger in a bird's nest
while playing with Booth, the team launches an investigation to find the rest
of the body. They locate the corpse in Jefferson Memorial Park, and it soon
becomes clear that the death was no accident. With the help of a new
middle-aged grad student in the lab (guest star Michael Badalucco), the team
identifies the victim as a local veterinarian whose penchant for gambling
brings a number of suspects into the picture. When the victim's fatal injuries
are found to be from a dog, the team uncovers an illegal dog fighting ring and
enlists the help of Cesar Millan to help them connect the forensic canine
evidence with the killer dog and its owner. Meanwhile, Booth asks Sweets to
psychoanalyze his son who he thinks has been traumatized from finding the
finger, and Sweets confronts Hodgins about his attitude in the lab.
