Synopsis: A makeshift morgue in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is overwhelmed. Bones is there helping. A detective brings in a body. Bones wakes up covered in blood in a bathroom. She only has flashes of memory. There is a call and it’s her airport shuttle. She goes to the doctor. The detective from the morgue comes to her assistance. Booth shows up. She is missing an earring and is upset because they were her mom’s. At the lab, Zack looks over the x-rays of the John Doe brought in by the detective. He gives her the details of the murder. They eat at a diner. The cook at the diner fills in a blank. She ate dinner there Tuesday night. They head back to the morgue and talk to Sam. They get a mini lesson in good and bad voodoo. When Angela and Zack call, Booth tells them what happened, but they are skeptical. The two visit the voodoo shop that Sam directs them too. They get a list of people who bought a specific ingredient and the medical examiner is on it. They go to visit him and find him extremely dead. The detective arrives and Booth explains why there were there. Booth spots Bones missing earring and he steals it from the scene. At the morgue, Bones collects all the files that she worked on. The file for John Doe 361 is missing. The assistant can’t find the file. They go into the morgue and she is looking for the body but don’t find it. At the lab, the case is driving the squints nuts. They can’t examine anything because they only have x-rays. Zack gets an idea thanks to Hodgins. In the hotel that Bones is staying at she worries it could have been her. Booth assures her she didn’t do it. He sees something on her pillow. The detective busts in. She has arrived to arrest Bones for the murder. The detective interviews her. Booth brings in Caroline to defend her. She is furious that Bones was talking. Zack discovers that John Doe had spina bifida. Caroline gets her out and the two meet with Sam over lunch. After he leaves, they have a moment. Caroline joins them with hospital records. Caroline suggests copping a plea. Bones looks at the x-rays. The doctor read the x-ray wrong and it gives Caroline some room to work. Zack calls Bones and gives her the name of the murder victim. She lets it slip about the murder charge and the team freaks out. Hodgins tries to cheer Angela up by telling her that Bones is just trying to be more like her. Back at the morgue, Booth tells Bones about the murder victim and all he did. Now they search all the bodies in boxes and find another employee dead in one. The coffin girl is now a suspect. Sam sprinkles some ashes and a pattern appears on the body. The voodoo shop owner owns the caddy and its grill marks are on his chest. His daughter was sleeping with Mike Doyle. They go to the shop to see Eva. In her room downstairs, she has impaled herself on a spike to kill herself. Bones realizes Eva did not commit suicide. She had to be pushed onto the spike to have it go through her spine. The shop owner killed his daughter and committed all the murders. Back in Bone’s office, the two tell the team everything that happened. Booth gives her back the earring.
