Synopsis

From FOX: The team investigates a body found in a car crash, the remains of which belong to a founder of a men‘s rights organization who may have been the victim of domestic abuse.

Meanwhile, Angela and the team struggle to deal with Hodgins post-wheelchair bitterness and Booth is convinced Brennan is a jinx for the Philadelphia Flyers.
