Storyline

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

Quotes

Dr. Temperance Brennan: How did I get away? Graham got killed, I got away. How did I do that?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: You know, Bones, all those things that Caroline mentioned - the martial arts, the shooting, the assaults - you're just the type of woman that fights. You know? Maybe they didn't expect it, maybe they thought some kind of magic could hold you.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: I don't believe in magic.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Exactly. You're a surprising woman, and that's sometimes enough to get away.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: [smiling at Booth] Why are you nice to me?
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Because. Because they think they get away...

Believe in me

Brennan is once again on vacation - working in a morgue in New Orleans to identify bodies from Hurricane Katrina. She wakes up beaten and bruised on her bathroom floor covered in blood. Booth rushes to her side to find out what's going on. He sticks with Brennan when it becomes apparent that she commuted a really, really ugly murder.

Some good things come out of the episode: 1. We are introduced to Federal prosecutor, Caroline, who we will see very often int he upcoming years (in fact, I believe she is still a part of the show in Season 11). 2. A seed is planted for the future relationship of Jack and Angela, a relationship that is still alive and well. 3. The bond between Brennan and Booth increases. Already, this early in the show, one can see a powerful bond between these two. As in a previous episode, people are beginning to recognize this bond that greater than friendship. They do double takes when coming into a room and observing them for only a moment.

The truth that is revealed to Brennan at the end is one of a deep trust and deep bond between the two, I believe. This is another one of those episodes that's often thought about when thinking on the romance of Booth and Brennan. It's well worth the watch!
