When Hodgins collapses near the end of the episode, it is found out he has localized trauma from the blast earlier in the episode, and suffered an epidural hematoma which was compressing his spine. Angela breaks down in tears when finding out Hodgins is paralyzed.

Hodgins begins being paralyzed with a sense to jump right back into his work all under extreme protest by Angela and some others at the lab. Wendell is convinced he needs to be there and although he says this, Cam sends him home anyway out of worry . But it just adds gas to the fire for Hodgins making him feel useless and gloomy. In the end Cam and Angela understand that Hodgins belongs in the lab and they should let him make his own decisions.

Although Hodgins was back at work it made him feel worse seeing everyone else walking upstairs and him having to use this mini elevator to reach the platform. Hodgins lashes out at everyone, most of the time women, but men get their fair share of Hodgins. Ultimately Hodgins gets into a fight with Angela and he tells her that this is him on a good day and it's not getting any easier so she can go.

Hodgins then hands her a folder including all his property; a request for divorce. Angela expressed her frustration at Hodgins and the loss of his legs.

Angela later gave the jewelry to Cam to persuade Hodgins to take her out to dinner multiple times that month in exchange for Cam giving Hodgins the jewelry back so he can return them.

Hodgins made an appointment with a doctor who has an experimental surgery for nerve regeneration to restore his legs, but Angela expressed her concern to Hodgins who told her that it was not her decision to make. Angela later did research on Dr. Hoffman and discovered that one of his patients died during surgery. Hodgins tried to convince her that it wasn't relevant because it happened two years ago. Angela compared Hodgins to the rats who were experimented on earlier in the episode who died after consuming the murder victim. Hodgins eventually realized the risks and decided not to do the surgery and he told Angela that he just wanted to find something to work. Angela stated that they will keep looking until they find something that does work. Hodgins told her that they are fine for now.

Hodgins almost fell 25 meters into a laundry chute, but was barely able to hold on. By the time Angela found out about it, the case was solved. Hodgins told Angela and Fisher that he became grateful that he was in his wheelchair. He told them that if he wasn't as strong as he was now after having months of physical therapy, the old him wouldn't have been strong enough to hold on.

Angela told the camera crew about how Hodgins was paralyzed during a scene where Hodgins, Angela, and Michael Vincent were in their kitchen.

Hodgins told Angela about what was going on and realised that his new physical therapist, Nurse Ratched, was going to help him walk again.

Hodgins was improving at the regeneration of the nerves in his legs. He was starting to feel pulses of pain due to involuntary contractions. Angela tried to give him his medicine, but Hodgins told her to save it for later since the pain was passing and thanked her for trying to help.
