Bones: The Gamer in the Grease

The remains of a video gamer are found in a grease truck, and Booth and Brennan soon uncover that the victim, Steve Rifton, is the only gamer to have a perfect score on a particular video game. His perfect score helped him to link a partnership with a gaming referee, but this partnership created animosity toward him in the gaming world. Meanwhile, Hogins, Sweets and intern Colin Fischer camp out for tickets to a movie premiere.
