That wasn’t the one occasion from Reichs’ actual life that made it into the “Bones” pilot both. The episode additionally begins with Brennan getting back from a visit to Guatemala through which she helped determine victims from the nation’s civil warring, very similar to Reichs did again in 2002 (as detailed on her personal website). Mind you, it seems Reichs wasn’t busted on the airport for carting a human cranium round in her journey bag like Brennan is throughout the episode (nor did she use her martial arts know-how to show a grabby Homeland Security officer a lesson … as far as we all know, anyway). But it is like I mentioned, life as a forensics specialist on the whole tends to be a tad much less thrilling than it’s within the “Bones” universe.
All 12 seasons of “Bones” are currently available to stream on Hulu.
