The Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Lana Brewster, a girl whose remains are delivered to Brennan and Booth's home by someone who believes her death 18 years ago was no accident. When the team discovers that Lana was murdered and her death was covered up, people from her past become key suspects, including an ex-boyfriend with whom Hodgins was friends. Meanwhile, Brennan starts having dreams again about evil tech genius Pelant, and about a potentially more heinous killer, whom she realizes could be involved with Lana's death.

its way overdue
1 August 2018 | by sandcrab277See all my reviews

Every episode starts out the same way ... gory body and remains ... then they strip the meat from the bones and put the bones on display ... examined and re-examined and re-examined and re-examined until the findings meet the deed; the need for a forensic bone specialist ... they are all murders or the super forensic team wouldn't be necessary ... some minor plot development makes it fbi jurisdiction so booth gets involved ... the formula usually works unless a writer gets a wild hair ... this wild hair of course
