Storyline

Suspected serial killer Christopher Pelant, the computer genius, clearly hopes to avoid trial by completely discrediting the Jeffersonian team. Playing on their emotions, each in turn is trapped to commit undeniable, often illegal errors, leading to their dismissal as witness or even suspension from duty, as happens with Booth. Given implicit threats to baby Christine and mounting evidence against Bones herself in the murder of her detained mentor Dr. Ethan Sawyer, Max makes a convincing case she would better disappear until the case is cleared. Written by KGF Vissers
