A look at last week’s episode: http://www.examiner.com/article/bones-9x3-el-carnicero-en-el-coche?cid=d...
Summary: A plan to catch Pelant involves using a human cadaver to stage a murder to match his style.
In this episode the group tries again to take down Pelant as they try to outsmart him.
Pelant throws Bones a curveball as he has her convinced that there is a serial killer out there who will keep murdering people if they don’t team up to find her. It’s hard to know if Pelant is telling the truth or blowing smoke, but the fact he went to see Bones to tell her, makes me want to believe him. Everyone else figures out the real reason of what he’s doing but Bones is none the wiser.
Booth has a lot of internal struggles as he must deal with the fact that someone he trusted might have been twisted. Even though all the clues pointed to it, he stuck to his guns and believed in the man that he knew. While this story comes to an end, it does open the story to the possibility of there being another serial killer.
It’s unclear if whether or not Pelant was lying about the female serial killer, but I kinda hope he’s not. I think it would be interesting to see that story unfold because almost all the serial killers are male.
At the end of the show, we get to the point in the show that everyone has been waiting for. Booth and Bones finally get officially engaged with no one to stop them. Now, it’s going to be interesting to see them plan the wedding. The writers have stated that the wedding will probably take place before winter break, so there’s going to be quite a few shows before then.
Here’s a recap of the show.
Hodgins/Angie are working to keep from Pelant from hacking the Jeffersonian. Caroline/Bones/Cam bring in a cadaver. Sweets explains why it’s good idea to try and smoke out Pelant. They get working on trying to make the cadaver look like a famous painting.
Booth meets with Flynn to give him the body to drop off. He thanks him for the job b/c Pelant has forced him behind the desk for career.
At home, Booth is waiting for the call and Bones tries to keep his mind off it. Bones/Booth get a text and the FBI found the planted body.
The group is looking over the body and Hodgins finds a flower that means ‘a foe is near’. Bones says that it’s not the same body. Booth realizes that it’s Flynn.
Pelant is looking over them as they look at the body.
He zeros in on Bones. Bones/Cam are looking over the body. They confirm that it’s Flynn. Bones noticed that Pelant mirrored her technique. They conclude that Flynn was alive when Pelant removed his liver. Cam says this is bad for Pelant because Booth won’t stop until he gets Pelant because Flynn had once saved his life.
Booth is talking with Aldo. He makes Booth think that either Pelant broke through the barriers or someone told him.
Sweets/Booth are looking through Flynn’s apartment. Booth won’t admit that Flynn was talking with Pelant. Hodgins tells Bones he got nothing. She sees that the pin he got in his bone is made from bone, very expensive surgery.
Booth tells Sweets about the surgery. Sweets try to say Pelant helped Flynn, but Booth won’t here. CSU finds Flynn’s getaway stash.
Back at the FBI office, Booth is talking with Caroline about the stash. Caroline doesn’t think it was Pelant because he works digitally, not with money. Booth won’t admit that Flynn is bad.
Booth/Bones meet with Flynn’s doctor from the surgery. He says there was anonymous donor who paid for it. The doctor says that they couldn’t find out the source of the money. He tells her there were 10 fractures, and Bones says there was 11. Bones tries to convince him and she says he’s not thinking rationally. Booth kisses her and she leaves flustered.
Bones goes over the gun shots with Cam. Bones think that Pelant may have copied another wound. She says it matches the same fracture that was done on one of her unsolved cases. Bones pulls the case. She says it’s identical. She hears clicking noises. She goes to use her phone, but there’s no service. Pelant walks in. He sets down a bomb, wanting to talk to her. They talk about her cases. He tells her that 5 of her cases were all killed by someone. He says he’s going to help her find the killer, who is a woman. He challenges her to find him so they can solve the murders. He tells her not to move until the beeper on the bomb goes off.
Angela tells Booth that all the money is new bills. She says that the money was all spent by Pelant. An alarm goes off.
Bones checks in on Bones. He tells her the bomb is fake. She tells him what happened with Pelant. She thinks that Pelant is afraid Booth is going to kill him.
Bones is looking over the cases trying to find the common thread. Cam tries to talk to Bones about Flynn’s body. She tells Cam to have Hodgins look at it. Bones is worried that Booth might do something irrational, she leaves.
Bones goes to see Aldo. She asks him about his opinion about what Booth will do with Pelant. She wants to stop him from killing Pelant b/c she wants his help to find the killer. Aldo tells her that Booth would risk his soul to kill Pelant in order to protect Bones.
Cam tries to get Bones to focus on Pelant. Bones notices that Pelant switched the drawers. She believes he sending her a message.

Angela hacks into the power plant. They see Bones pulling up to the power plant. They tell Booth. Bones goes into the plant. Hodgins looks over Bones’s old notes to try and figure out how Bones figured out where to go. They figured out that Pelant wrote her a love note that only Bones would figure out.

Booth continues to work his way to them. Bones tells him to surrender or Both will kill him. Bones starts walking him out. He starts talking to her about the killer.
