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

Trivia

The magic and spells that Hollywood and most people mistake for VooDoo is actually HooDoo. VooDoo is merely a religion. See more »

Goofs

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 »

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!
