It’s been made clear on Bones that Pelant enjoys messing with all of our intrepid investigators, but his most recent appearances have focused on a few single targets. Last season he framed Brennan for murder, forcing her to go on the run until she could be exonerated. When we last saw Pelant, he targeted Hodgins – who had tried to kill him while the team was attempting to clear Brennan’s name – and forced him to give up all of his wealth to save a group of young girls.
We’ve known for a while that the tech genius would be returning in the season 8 finale and now Fox has provided a few teasers for the episode. Bad news is coming for Booth, though, because it looks like Pelant is very focused on him this time around. Here’s what’s in store for “The Secret in the Siege”: “When evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) returns to toy with the Jeffersonian team in their newest investigation, they discover that the string of murders that have been occurring are tied to FBI agents close to Booth (David Boreanaz). Meanwhile, as the investigation unfolds, Sweets realizes that the evidence seems all too familiar to him and Brennan starts evaluating her relationship with Booth when signs begin to point to him as a potential target of Pelant’s.”
Will Pelant’s reappance force Brennan and Booth apart? Will the FBI and the Jeffersonian team finally manage to bring him down? You’ll have to tune in to the season finale of Bones on April 29 to find out!
In the meantime, check back next week for more finale teasers straight from star Emily Deschanel.
