The Woman in the Sand is the eighth episode of the second season of Bones.

Summary Edit

Booth and Brennan are in desert 15 miles from Las Vegas after a body turns up. The FBI believe it's the missing federal prosecutor, which Brennan and her team confirm. After Brennan spots a vulture circling nearby, they find a second body, that of a female boxer. Booth and Brennan are looking for the murderer in Las Vegas, spending some time in casinos, which could potentially be problematic for Booth. Eventually, they discover an underground fight club, so Booth and Brennan pretend to be a couple on vacation and looking for the fight club after hearing about it. Booth is then entered into a fight to lose in order to keep an undercover FBI agent in the fighting rotation after he hurt his wrist, but those in charge changed Booth's opponent to their best fighter at the last second. Booth unexpectedly wins, beating the odds 20-1. As the former wrestler Joe Nolan, who told Booth and Brennan (or rather their fake identities Tony and Roxie) about the number to get into the fight club, escorts them to their car, Booth reveals that he is an FBI agent and convinces Nolan to tell him everything. Nolan reveals that he isn't the murderer but is the one who buries the bodies. He implicates "Sweet Pete", a casino owner, and his son Nick for the crimes, helping the FBI and Brennan solve the two murders.
