Brennan and Booth investigate human remains found at a neighborhood block party. Suburban politics and secret scandals give each neighbor in the cul-de-sac a motive, leaving Brennan, Booth and Sweets to sift through the drama to find their suspect.

Meanwhile, Jeffersonian intern Arastoo comes clean about his background, and Booth’s son attempts to find Booth a girlfriend.

Goof-- The neighbors at the luau first notice something is wrong when they hear popping coming from the pig-roasting pit. We later learn that the popping sound was decorative stones exploding when moisture trapped inside of them turned into steam. Hodgins says that the stones were thrown into the fire along with the body (outside of the body, not inside). The temperature needed to pop the stones would be the boiling point of water, 212 degrees Fahrenheit. If the pit was indeed hot enough to cook a pig and incinerate human remains in a few hours, the stones would have reached the 212 degree point and began to pop within minutes or seconds of being throw into the fire.
