Booth's gun is taken away after he shoots a clown ornament on an ice cream truck and has to undergo psychological evaluation to prove he's mentally sane before he can get his gun back. With Booth gun-less, Brennan has to head town to Florida to look into the death of a college student whose body is found inside of a dead alligator. She is assigned to work with Agen Tim Sullivan, but the two soon face stylistic differences that leaves Brennan looking forward to Booth's return. While Booth undergoes his evaluation, the victim's body is taken to the Jeffersonian and is identified as Judy Dowd, a woman who disappeared several weeks before her body was found.
