We are in the big season finale of Bones… we are heading towards a major shocker on Bones… but first… last night an all new episode of Bones aired called The End in the Beginning. In a post filled with Bones spoilers…
Complete Recap and Spoilers of Bones 04×25 Season Finale – The End in the Beginning
4:47 a.m. A woman’s legs creep into a bedroom, kicking off her heels and climbing into bed with Booth. It’s Bones. She gets in bed with him and they get down to it as Hodgins provides voice over about two people finding each other (it sounds less dirty when he says it).
5:53 a.m., they argue over who has to get up to answer the knock at the door.
Booth answers in Bones’ flowery robe. It’s Cam. She introduces herself. Booth’s brother Jared is with her. A body has been found at their night club.
Bones and Booth arrive on the scene, a big warehouse club called “The Lab.” Zach is there. Not in a straight jacket. He found the body. He’s Bones’s assistant. Bones and Booth don’t recognize the middle aged male victim, found shot dead in a bathroom stall.
Cam questions them. She wants Bones’ alibi. Cam thinks she’s cheating on Booth, her husband.
Caroline the prosecutor, who is not the prosecutor but their defense attorney, explains to the lab denizens (the same crew, different lab) that they’re all suspects. Fisher is a chef. Angela is the hostess, she calls Booth “Mr. B.” Booth got into it with some rock star he was trying to schedule a concert for, C-Sink. Someone mentions City Councilman Max Keenan. Sweets, the bartender, says that Max is mad because he didn’t get his fee for working out something with permits.
Zach says a Persian businessman is trying to buy the place. Daisy confesses that she shut off the security camera for some time with her boyfriend – Fisher.
Angela mentions that she went on a few dates with Jared. Cam calls them all accessories after the fact.
At the diner, Bones and Booth talk about how long they can keep the club shut down. Max drops by and suggests they might not be having these problems if they’d paid the people they were supposed to pay.
Bones asks Cam when they can reopen the club. Not soon. Cam asks Bones where she was between midnight and 5 a.m., implying she’s cheating. She says she was in her office, but they think she would have heard the gun shot.
Booth talks to his brother about the Persian who wants to buy the place. Jared explains that something was used to silence the shot, which might explain why Bones didn’t hear it.
Booth and Bones drive around in their fancy Mercedes. She tells him Cam thinks she’s cheating him. Caroline calls with Max. He tells them they’re open for business.
At the Lab club, Zach finds the murder weapon in Vincent’s stuff and picks it up. They try to decide whether or not to get rid of it. He thinks Zach is the type of moron who would go to jail for a murder he didn’t commit. Back at the Lab, we learn why Hodgins was doing the voice over: he’s a hard-boiled crime writer, currently spilling his sorrows to bartenders Sweets, who shows him a cell phone picture of the victim.
Hodgins recognizes him from the bar last night. He acts like he’s colluding with Sweets to keep that a secret.
Clark Edison (C-Sink) drops by, decked out Diddy-style in a white suit, and talks to Booth and Brennan about booking a gig at the club. They’re concerned about his brother’s gang ties.
Vincent shows Booth and Caroline the gun in his stuff.
They call Cam to get it. It matches the murder weapon. Hodgins offers his theory that it was the victim’s gun.
They take Vincent and Zach away.
The mysterious Persian real estate mogul drops by.
Wendell, the security guy, tells Booth out back that he taped the door lock around 3 a.m. but the tape’s gone. So either the dead guy hid in the club or Bones let him in after he left.
He tells Booth the dead guy talked to him last night.
Hairston, the mysterious Persian, makes Bones another offer on the night club. He says “things like this occur when people are not reasonable.” Booth tells him it’s not for sale.
Sweets asks if his band can audition, Booth says yes.
Angela shows Bones a napkin she drew on last night, a map of the club she drew for the victim. There’s an X on her office.
Bones (whom everyone calls “Bren”) meets with Max, showing him the napkin. He thinks the Persian or gang bangers killed the victim to intimidate her. Max tells her to ask Jared about it, saying they work for the same person.
Cam tells them the murder victim was a security consultant for a waste disposal company in New Jersey – a mobster. Bones gives Cam and Jared the napkin. Bones mentions the name “Gravedigger,” asking if he could have done it. Cam won’t release Vincent.
Hodgins narrates, talking about shock waves sent out by murder.
Bones tells Booth what Max said about he and Jared both working for the Gravedigger. She explains to him that the staff is lying to the police because they think they’re covering for him.
Sweets and his band “Gormogon” audition. They’re not bad, sort of Shin-esque. He sings and plays keyboard with Daisy on tambourine. She’s smitten with him after.
Booth says they’re good, but it’s not right for a night club. Edison drops by for a chat with Booth. Wendell follows him out to the alley with his gun, but Booth shuts the door in his face. A fight takes place on the other side. Wendell runs to get Bones, then runs out the other door. They find Booth sitting, slightly bloodied, next to a guy we presume is Edison’s brother.
Wendell puts his gun on him and soon has Jared’s gun to his own head. Everybody disarms. Cam hauls them both in.
Booth and Clark’s brother chat, both cuffed to the table. He says Clark doesn’t bang at all. They make peace. Cam lets them both go.
Daisy tells Booth and Bones she talked to the victim last night, telling him about a quiet place for making out. They head to the lost and found, where Daisy says that Fisher says Mr. B probably killed the guy defending Bones.
Bones goes back to her office where Zach, her assistant, has been released. He says he found her coat in a box of gin, it had a bullet hole through it. It was used to muffle the shot. Sweets burned it because they think Bones and Booth did it.
Back at home, Bones tells her hubby that her whole staff thinks they’re killers but are only succeeding in making them look guilty.
Booth tells Jared about Bones’ missing coat and Jared says those kinds of fibers were found on the body. Jared says Max is wrong about him being in the Gravedigger’s pocket and adds that Bones is cheating on Booth with the Persian. Booth doesn’t believe it.
Jared tells him her phone records show she was talking to him over the last few weeks. Jared tells Booth to face reality and Booth decks him. Jared tells Booth to grow up.
Back at the club, Booth asks Angela about the napkin. She says she was interrupted by Jared, coming by to ask her out, while she was drawing it and Booth realizes his brother saw the victim and the napkin.
Booth finds Max and accuses him of coming after them.
Bones and Booth watch over the club. She asks if the police tried to convince him she was having an affair with the Persian. She thinks he would kill for her, and then lie to protect her.
The evening’s entertainment arrives: Motley Crue.
Bones feels bad for Cam and Jared, having to investigate something where everyone lies. She’s glad they’re nightclub owners and not crime solvers. Booth says he knows who did it. So does she.
Cam walks in after Wendell and Vincent, sprung from jail. Max whispers something in her ear that makes her go ashen.
Bones and Booth both realize Jared did it to protect her. Wendell comes to get them.
Out in the alley, they find Cam with her weapon on Jared, saying his phone GPS puts him in the club at the time of the murder. She tells him to turn over his gun and he says he’ll remove it, but she knows how it’s gonna go. Bones steps between them. She thanks Jared.
Cam lowers her weapon.
Bones gently takes his gun and gives it to Cam.
Inside, the Crue plays “Dr. Feelgood.” (Of course they’re going to play the song with “doctor” in it.)
Hodgins voice over says when you love someone you open yourself up to hurt, that’s the truth.
The club goes dark for the night.
Booth tells Bones he thinks they should sell the club. He’s not worried about the Gravedigger. And Cam said they can’t find her coat so Jared is going to walk. She climbs in his lap and tells him she’s pregnant.
“The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable,” Hodgins says.
Fade out and in to Booth with a bandaged head in a hospital bed.
Hodgins voice over fades out and we see it’s Bones who has been typing about love and the possibilities it creates. She deletes it.
Booth wakes up, saying he had such a weird dream. She tells him his operation was a success but he reacted to the anesthesia. He’s been in a coma for four days. He looks at her. “Who are you?”
