In this week’s Body of Proof season 3, episode 7, “Skin and Bones,” Megan and Tommy investigate the savage murder of a young woman, which leads them to her neighbor, who bites Tommy and is diagnosed with rabies. When another rabies fatality comes in without any bite marks, Kate calls in the new health commissioner, Dr. Charles Stafford, to help Megan uncover the truth. Could it really be zombies, as some of her colleagues suspect?
Body of Proof follows the life and career of Medical Examiner Megan Hunt, once a high-flying neurosurgeon, who now works in Philadelphia’s Medical Examiner’s Office after a car accident abruptly ended her neurosurgery career. As a Medical Examiner Megan applies her vast medical knowledge, keen instincts and variously charming and scalpel-like personality to the task of solving the medical mysteries of the dead and bringing the people responsible for their deaths to justice. As she investigates what happened to her patients, their lives and the lessons they hold become a kind of bequest to Megan, to learn from and to apply to her own life, if she has the courage to do so.
Body of Proof season 3, episode 7, “Skin and Bones,” airs April 2, at 10pm est on ABC. Spoiler pictures below:
