* The team uses a drone to inspect someone who may be trafficking animals. At one point, a camel and a zebra appear in the footage, yet Angela doesn't recognize them, and Daisy has to explain to her what they are. Like, really? Angela doesn't know what a zebra or camel are, and the TheDitz has to tell her? It's such a strange moment.

* Wendell, Fisher, Daisy, and Arastoo all started appearing as interns/Brennan's grad students in Season Four. They should have all ''long'' since obtained their doctorates and one assumes started working somewhere full time by now.

** Booth is, in his way, very much an idealist, and he's also seen the things a government must sometimes do for the greater good. Him objecting to specific actions and being in favour of the government in general is entirely plausible.

* Booth is remarkably willing, even aggressively, to excuse government actions, even though the government has turned on him on at least one occasion. Even though he, like every serviceman and federal agent, swore an oath to ''the Constitution'', not the government.

* One, Booth is the sort of hero who will try to solve everything alone if he can. He's the only one who can legally kill Pelant without repercussions and he will not allow Brennan or the Squints to do the deed if he can help it, even though all of them would love the opportunity, because he thinks the blood should be on his hands alone. Two, the writers are hoping [[ViewersAreMorons we'll just ignore the gigantic hole in this plotline.]] If the backlash on the TV review sites (and especially their comment sections) is any indication, the fans are not taking this very well. While Pilant is right about this sort of senseless self-sacrifice being in Booth's nature, it stinks of WriterOnBoard.

* Ever watch EvilDead2? Is it a horror movie? Is it a comedy? It's both! Bones is what is called a dramedy. Not to the same level as {{Psych}}, but pretty close.

** That's typical of fiction though, shows that try and pretend to be realistic most of all. Things like conflict of interest are outright ignored unless the writers suddenly decide to make the characters pay attention to stuff like that. Ergo, Cam blows off Sweets about the above Pelant incident but raises hell over Wendell's medical marijuana use later. Cam looks like a hypocrite just because the writers decided to be inconsistent.
