‘Bones’ season 9, episode 4 preview: Pelant returns; a tragic death

What's ahead -There have been some complaints within the “Bones” fandom as of late when it comes to the Pelant story, mostly in that there were teases about the early part of the season being a set-up for the Booth / Brennan wedding; instead, the past two episodes have been more about a couples’ retreat, and the decision by Sweets to go and help out some troubled youth.

Luckily, there are going to be some changes coming in next week’s new episode “The Sense in the Sacrifice.” Namely, Pelant is going to be back and causing mayhem, and things will eventually take a turn for the worse when Booth ends up losing someone who he considers to be an important part of his life. Just take a look at the synopsis below for more details:

“Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds) is back, and the members of the Jeffersonian team want to put an end to the hold he’s had over them, once and for all. When a human cadaver is willed for research to the team, they devise a plan, with the help of Special Agent Hayes Flynn (guest star Reed Diamond), to stage the human cadaver in a way that Pelant would stage a murder, and steal his spotlight in order to flush him out. But their plan backfires when Pelant is a step ahead of them, resulting in him killing someone close to Booth. Meanwhile, Sweets returns from his leave of absence and is convinced that Agent Flynn isn’t the person whom everyone thinks he is.”

The promo below definitely gives the entire story a dark, creepy sort of air, in particular with the tease that Pelant may be waiting in Brennan’s car of all places. In a word, this is going to be trouble.
