The Jeffersonian team and prosecutor Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher) work to convict Heather Taffet aka the Gravedigger (Deirdre Lovejoy) during her trial who is defending herself. Brennan, Booth, and Hodgins are forced to drop their own charges against Taffet once they discover the missing remains of a young boy that was killed by the Gravedigger, so they could work and testify against Taffet. Believing Taffet will not get convicted, Brennan's father Max tries to kill her with a sniper rifle, but Booth is able to stop him and Max is put in jail until the trial is over. After several attempts of finding evidence that Taffet is able to successfully argue against, Hodgins discover a dust mite from the boy's mouth that contains the DNA of Taffet when he bit her. This evidence proves successful as the jury convicts Taffet of kidnapping and murder, but Taffet warns Brennan "that it's not over". The team later celebrate over drinks at the Founding Fathers bar.
