An 11-year-old camper comes across a decomposed body of a man with his feet removed and arms bound. The team heads to the woods to investiage and clues lead them to a Virginia lodge used for an S&M retreat where women act as jockeys and men act as their horses. Several people become suspects, including the victim's wife. However, Zack and Hodgins find evidence that makes finding the killer more difficult than expected.
Meanwhile, Angela agrees to use hypnosis to help her remember the name of her husband so she can get a divorce and marry Hodgins, but she has difficulty falling into a trance.
