After Hodgins and Angela were drugged and woke up to a bloody corpse hanging in the canopy of their bed and flower petals around their son Michael's crib, they are forced to believe that Pelant is back for revenge against Hodgins. Although Hodgins wants to go after Pelant directly, Booth knows it's best to work within the system and not go against protocol. Meanwhile, as the Jeffersonian team investigates the corpse, they discover the victim was a Special Forces agent working for the world's biggest supplier of mercenaries, and Angela and Hodgins decide to start an investigation without the rest of the Jeffersonian team for the sake of their family.

Yeah more Bones!
29 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Uh. On second thought - No. This a second or third nail in the coffin for this show for me this season. I know it's fairly old - how many ways can you do twists on the same basic plot each week? I have really enjoyed this show up to this year, and I understand why it's turning into more of a drama. Perhaps its time to go ahead and commit to morphing it and trying to wrap it up instead of beating a dead horse into the ground again and again.

In this episode the villain is completely unbelievable. I give them full indulgence for fudging the realism because it is usually fun at least... Not this time. Bring back Zack for an episode and let him and this Pallant character have a super-duper nerd-duke-out with Zacks super power psycho brain matching Pallant on every move but from a more primal level since he's freshly broken out of jail, and the Jeffersonian funding is now close to defunct. Give us a super bloody dual at the end where Agent Flynn swoops in like Robocop with his newly installed modern bionic parts since the mini-gun incident, and saves the day.

I think that would be a great final dramatic moment for the climactic finale, and then we can watch the special extended last episode where everyone is having the "Memories of the Jeffersonian" gathering at Booth and Brennan's. We find out what each character is moving off to do with the rest of their lives, and each one recounts some of their favorite scene in a memory montage.

Then we can all smile and say so-long dear sweet show, and wait for the reunion or movies, or what have you.
