Oh Bones, why you gotta end like this? The season finale started out by reintroducing an old character named Christopher Pelant, a computer nerd murderer. Man, what a cliché character, huh? All those computer nerd murderers fighting the police in the real world… So far he has outsmarted Dr. Brennan, Booth and her teams of squints, which means he has to be pretty clever. Like “doing the Friday New York Times crossword in PEN” clever. That’s really clever. He has set things up meticulously to frame Dr. Brennan for the murder of Ethan Sawyer, who had a brief appearance before as a brilliant mathematics doctor turned paranoid schizophrenic. See, that’s what doing too much math will do to you, kids. The evidence is piling up against Brennan and she is running out of time. Everyone but the squints at the Jeffersonian are kicked off the case, leaving Brennan with two choices: run or go to jail. Not really the ideal situation. But, hey, makes for an easy choice. Get your run on, Brennan!
This season finale was so underwhelming even with all the unexplained evidence bringing Brennan closer to her demise. The episode ends with Brennan and the baby fleeing the scene of the crime, so to speak, and Booth left alone with a rigged alarm clock that will do God knows what when the time is right. Blow him up?! Or, even worse, wake him from a really pleasant nap?!? I would be unbelievably pissed if my wife took my baby girl and left without me, but I guess that just comes with the lifestyle. These TV detectives never get a chance to go on a family vacation, so maybe she’ll find it relaxing! I get that they want to leave you hanging of the edge of your seat with fear and curiosity of how this is all going to turn out, but this episode failed to even do that and just fell flat.
