Corrected entry: At the scene of the bomb attack, Booth introduces Bones to Department of Homeland Security agent Bennett Gibson. Bones met agent Gibson in a very dramatic way in the previous, pilot episode, where she threw him to the floor after Booth had asked him to detain Bones at the airport.Jeff Walker
Corrected entry: At the very end when Brennen brings the machine guns to Booth at the shooting range, Brennen puts on ear protection, but Booth does not, and he starts shooting. This would never happen. Booth, as an FBI agent who frequents the range, knows that one rule of any shooting range is that you must wear ear protection.Boobra
Corrected entry: While Bones is trying to convince Angela to testify, Angela refuses on the grounds that she does not want to be responsible for Bones' father being executed. Bones then states that whether her father gets executed will be up to a jury. However, Bones' father is being tried in the District of Columbia, and D.C. abolished the death penalty in 1957, so there could be no chance of him being executed at all. It can't simply be a character mistake, because they were present at the beginning of the trial, and if the death penalty were possible those present in court would have heard the judge instructing the jury about it.

Factual error: The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.Myridon
Trivia: When Max and Temperence go out to lunch with Temperence's cousin Margaret, Max comments that the pair are "practically sisters," and later when Margaret meets Booth, Booth asks if she is Bones' sister. The actress playing Margaret is actually Emily Deschanel's sister, Zooey.Cubs Fan
