Storyline

Boy scouts find the rotting corpse of Ed Milner in a Virginia wood, feet cut off 'surgically' and bound like a horse. It's a few miles from Lucky's sex club, The Ambassadora, where rich people discretely indulge their near-SM 'human pony' fetish. Mr. Ed's rider, Anne 'Annie Oakley' Marie Ostenback, MD, divulges widow Annie hides she found out the day of Ed's disappearance. She was tipped anonymously by British rider Calvin 'Thor' Johnson. Rider Tom Mularz, a National Guard deserter, was expelled, found out a butcher, that day. Hypnosis is Angela's only shot to find Berimbau. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

When Bones and Booth are in the car talking about equine fetish, Bones says that "Pony fetish has been around since the Greeks." Then she says that "In 16th century Turkey, the king kept stables of pony girls and pony boys." This is erroneous in that Turkey didn't exist until the 20th century and also the preceding Ottoman Empire did not have kings, it had sultans. See more »

Quotes

FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth: Here we are, all of us, basically alone, separate creatures, just circling each other, all searching for that slightest hint of a real connection. Some look in the wrong places, some they just give up hope because in their mind they're thinking "Oh there's nobody out there for me," but all of us, we keep trying over and over again. Why? Because every once in a while... every once in a while, two people meet and there's that spark, and yes, Bones, he's handsome and she's beautiful and maybe ...

3 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B find themselves dealing with folks who like to act like horses and folks who like to treat other folks as if they were horses. A body leads them to a group that practices this rather odd form of fetishism. A stranger episode has never been seen, I can tell you that. It also is funny as hell. Meanwhile, Angels undergoes hypnosis to try to recollect the name of her husband (don't ask). The hypnotherapist will be familiar to fans of the old TV series, "In The Heatof the Night." The real comedy is watching how dispassionately Brennan reacts to the fetishistic horsey crowd, compared to the largely unnerved Booth. When the folks who play horses kneel down to eat oats out of troughs placed on the floor, watch B&B's separate reactions. Ya gotta love this episode, although I wouldn't want anyone under 12 watching it.
