After hurricane Katrina, Bones spends her free days in devastated New Orleans helping to identify unearthed corpses, but wakes up in a puddle of blood with amnesia about a whole day, after a dinner with black orderly Sam Potter, a voodoo practitioner. Booth flies to her rescue; they find the "gris-gris", a chicken leg-preparation made by the black voodoo practiced by the evil red sect, found in the mouth of John Doe 361, whose X-rays she had sent to the Smithsonian (where Zack concludes he was murdered by bullet and/or crushing), was purchased from the last supplier by Dr. Grahama Legiere, whom she was helping. Then they find Legiere murdered bloodily. The unamused local police arrests Bones, Booth gets a local prosecutor to defend her. Soon more voodoo corpses appear... Written by KGF Vissers

Bones:The Man in the Morgue
14 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While helping identity bodies after the hurricane Katrina in Naulins, Brennan is suspected of a heinous, ritualistic homicide where a doctor she was supposed to eat supper with is found skinned and spiked crucifixion-style to his wall. She awakens with amnesia, a bum wrist, bumps and bruises, with blood from the victim all over her clothes. Voodoo bags, a missing corpse with only X-rays sent to the Jeffersonian Medico-lab a means to identify him, and Booth's tireless attempts to keep logical, literal Brennan from implicating herself to the New Orleans police--none of this compares to the two voodoo cults warring with each other and how the missing corpse could be the answer to Brennan's safety. There's an interesting conversation scene between Angela and Hodgens over Brennan(after the team find out about Bones' predicament) which plants the seed to their future romance. We are introduced to Prosecutor Caroline Julian(Patricia Belcer) asked by Booth to take on Brennan as a client for her own welfare since Bones can not keep from personally building a case against herself. Interesting idea to feature Katrina's plight within the series allowing Bones a chance to assist in the identification of victims killed during the breaking of levee strongholds, which yielded many drown victims..this during what was supposed to be Brennan's vacation! Michelle Hurd, formerly of LAW AND ORDER:SVU, is the lead detective in New Orleans who suspects Brennan of the murder because of the evidence of blood and it'll be up to Booth and her team to prove otherwise.
