Storyline

FBI Special Agent Hayes Flynn enthusiastically helps carry out Sweets's plan to catch Pelant by staging a mythological murder in his style. However Pelant knew about the ploy and substituted Flynn's masterly doctored corpse for the team's in record time. Booth is utterly determined to revenge his former army comrade, confident that the evidence suggesting he was in league with Pelant is planted. Forensics allow locating Pelant's lair, but he meanwhile intrudes the Jeffersonian to tell Bones about an even more elusive serial killer only he can catch and switches many corpses. Sweets works out Pelant's ambition is to replace Booth as Bones's lover. Written by KGF Vissers

Horrible Episode
7 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I are hugs fans of the show, and have watched every episode from the beginning. With that said tonight was a huge disappointment (ep.9.4). The writing, directing, and plot were cheesy and quite honestly way below the standards for this show. I don't know if they are trying to write themselves out of a show or what, but this was pitiful. On top of that the show has been increasing the level of gratuitous violence that it portrays.

I have never been a proponent of violence being bad on TV, but I also have no urge to see someone get their face peeled off live in the middle of dinner. That was a few episodes back however, tonight it was just an autopsy complete with rib spreading and Quad splitting... Please stop with the gratuitous violence, it does not help the plot, and is simply in poor taste.

So for all who are huge Bones fans, you have to watch this episode because it deals with Polant, but don't expect to enjoy it. The beginning makes no sense and seems to come out of nowhere, the middle is lacking in anything resembling a puzzle, and the end is well... bad... like Monty Python bad. I loved Monty Python, but they were supposed to be funny... Bones is not a comedy.

One last thing. I don't want to give away too much, but from what I saw in tonight's episode they seem to be attempting to get an HBO level of realistic violence into the show, and yet tried to spin a fairy tale ending into a bad plot aimed at 7 year olds. Absolutely horrible.
