The Finder is the nineteenth episode of the sixth season of Bones.


The remains of a maritime museum security guard are found in the Florida Everglades, after attempting to steal a 18th-century nautical chart fragment that is used to discover treasures. To help solve the crime, Booth gets the help of Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults), a former U.S. soldier and Iraq war veteran, who has the ability to unearth anything. Along with Sherman, they are also assisted by colleagues, Ike Latulippe (Saffron Burrows) and Leo Knox (Michael Clarke Duncan). During the case, Brennan tests Sherman's skills, while Booth has cold feelings about his former military comrade.


Main CastEdit

Guest CastEdit


This episode served as a backdoor pilot for the spin-off The Finder.

It is also the only episode to stray from the Noun-Preposition-Noun naming scheme.

Strangely, Booth states in this episode that he had to go AWOL in order to be present for Parker's birth. All prior sources indicate that Booth was already working for the FBI by then.

Brennan mentions that the medal she lost was from her 7th grade science fair, but when Walter brings it to her it says Woodside Elementary Science Fair.

I don't know what that meansEdit


Walter: I'll squeeze you in for my old compadre, but I'm the finder and you're the catchers.
Bones: I don't know what that means.
Walter: It means I'll find the chart fragment but it's on you guys to catch the killer.
Booth: Great. Done deal.


Bones: Do you know where?
Walter: Poor man's safety deposit box...
Bones: I... I don't know what that means.
Walter: Pawnshop. You got anything else?
Bones: No. I'm done.
