Plot Overview

A woman's car is run off the road and she is killed, but her baby miraculously survives the accident. Booth and Brennan go to the woman's hometown to try to find out who's responsible for running her car off the road. Bones, with help from Booth, takes care of the baby until the team finds out who killed the mother.


This episode was moved around numerous times. It was originally scheduled to air on November 27, 2007, then FOX moved it to January 4, 2008. It then moved from January 4 to February 22. Next it was moved to April 28, so it could begin the final run of new episodes for the season, just in time for May sweeps. FOX then decided to move it back two weeks to April 14 before moving it back to April 28. All of these scheduling changes were most likely due to the Writers' Strike and the lack of new episodes resulting from it.
