Sweets is depressed, looses his knack and decides it's time for time off to recover his root motivation for the job or switch to actually helping psychiatric patients. A corpse, dragged in a tree by a chewing bobcat (lynx), is identified as Korean American Pak. His wife Emma believed he was o business-trip while he took a 'couples therapy course' in a Virginian Indian reservation with his mistress. Unable to work there officially, Booth takes Bones there as undercover couple Tony and Roxie. They discover the pseudo-Indian shaman isn't even the wrest fake, nor the only one with an alibi. Aristoo gets the team to help Camile despite her misplaced pride when an identity thief wrecks her life.

Even though race and ethnicity are seen differently in various regions, Brennan, of all people, would have been last to make such an error. See more
