Bones Episode Preview: Who Shot Brennan?

at . Comments

Get ready for a powerful new Bones next Monday entitled "The Shot in the Dark."

As you might have guessed from the title, Brennan is shot. In the dark.

When Brennan takes a bullet while working late at the Jeffersonian lab, she is rushed to the hospital in critical condition. While at the hospital, she struggles with visions of her mother that defy logic.

Brooke Langton guest stars as Christine Brennan, while Ryan O'Neal reprises his role as her father, Max, in an episode that splits time between the events in her mind and those unfolding around her.

All evidence suggests that Brennan's attacker may be linked to the Jeffersonian. Who do you think shot Brennan, and why? How do you see this Bones event playing out next week and beyond?

Watch the promo for the episode and comment below ...

Check out our Bones review for a full rundown on last night's episode and be sure to check back with us this week as we post any sneak preview clips released for next Monday's show.

It seems unlikely it would be Pelant, but possible. Judging from the promo, the episode doesn't revolve around the shooter. It revolves around Brennan's after life experience. The shooter is probably a random person.


i could be pelant, dressed as a jeffersonian lab coat (grey-white), trying to show the team how easily he can get them


It was only a matter of time before God was brought into the spotlight--there's no way this couple stays together, with such disparate views as they currently have. I wonder just how much of an epiphany Bones will have...


I highly doubt it's Pelant. It's Naomi from paleontology.


As much as I want to get excited about the ep, the promo hasn't shown me anything new or unique. Distraught family, white light, fighting to get back to them, well, ok, seen it before. Sorry, not feeling the excitement.


I think that the shooter should be Diasy or Pelant?
What about Brennan's brother?
