When a teenager comes across a dismembered body in a pool of purple water, Brennan and Booth are called to the scene. There they find that the victim's head is missing. With help from the newest grad student, Wendell, the team learns the body is that of Jared Addison, a 25-year-old science fiction writer with severe OCD. Sweets lends his expertise to the case as Booth and Brennan interview suspects, which includes Jared's psychologist. Meanwhile, a person from the group's past gives them insight into the case.
