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

There are 2 distinct types of voodoo practiced in New Orleans - Louisiana Voodoo and Haitian voodoo. The two types of voodoo and their beliefs are inconsistent throughout the episode. Secte Rouge is a part of Haitian voodoo. However, in Haitian voodoo, gris-gris bags are used for good, not evil. Bokors are Haitian voodoo sorcerers, however, bokors are not defined as "good" or "evil." This episode portrays all bokors as dark. Bokors are actually sorcerers for hire who can cast good or dark spells. See more
