No, but my entire personality doesn't do a complete 180 at random after years of consistency like the writers are doing with Bones. The real Dr. Brennan would not even have considered Pelant's statements valid until she had reason to believe them. At most she may have examined the bones thoroughly for a few days at most and if she didn't find anything would drop it until she got actual evidence to go on. This entire episode is people basically telling her exactly that. Besides, Bones hasn't really changed that much over the years, and one thing that's always been consistent for her is the need for actual evidence above everything else.in everything she does.

Was anybody else's reaction to seeing Pelant at the start "GOOD GOD NO!!!!". The guy is dead and the writers still can't avoid bringing him out.
The last couple seasons it appears that the writers just LOVE derailing Bones' entire character to make the plot work. This so called serial killer? The REAL Dr. Brennan would've decided that Pelant was blowing smoke until she had real physical evidence to the contrary and would never allow her emotions to interfere with her work. She would never grow obsessed with finding a killer she had no actual evidence even existed.
They need a regularly featured woman character on this show that actually kicks some ass unlike Abby that's why.
"The terrorist mastermind Benham Parsa escaped, although at least two of his underlings (three if we include the mercenary responsible for the first attack) were killed."
And it would have been 4 dead terrorists if Gibbs had just shot the guy the first chance he got instead of pulling that "Say "FREEZE!" and then stand there like an idiot while the bad guy kills someone and/or gets away" thing cops do in shows.

Yellow boxes denote who knows at least something about The Machine, Red boxes denote perpetrators, white is everybody else.
I suspect that Root is in her little cage of her own free will. I'd be honesty surprised if she hadn't been able to get out whenever she wanted the first day in fact.
If they had to kill off some main character it should have been Chris. He's never done much of anything on the show and it's pretty rare that an episode gets centered around him. Even Meg has her "I get tortured by the entire universe for no reason" angle, all Chris has is "I'm fat and stupid" which is a niche Peter already fills.
P.S. One would have to be nuts to think this will actually stick.
I agree, if you don't like something you shouldn't be reviewing it. Only someone who likes something can be truly fair when reviewing it, somebody who hates something is going to ignore it's high points and constantly harp on it's low points. When someone who likes something points out it's low points, it's something genuinely bad enough to actually be worth mentioning and not just nitpicking. A person who likes something will also not whine about the same thing over and over despite it being a fundamental part of it, like Bones complete social cluelessness.
I loved the bar fight scene. I don't care what the reason for it was, it was nice to see Bones kicking some ass for once after several seasons of her acting like a helpless victim whenever a killer is within 20 feet of her (with Pelant it was particularly bad) despite being trained in martial arts and marksmanship.
Fusco barely being around much anymore doesn't bother me much, there isn't really much that he can do at this point that the others can't do themselves. There isn't really much room for him in the storylines these days.
I would rather it not be Borin, she would be redundant. Borin is basically Gibbs with breasts so there's little need for having her around permanently. As a character that pops in every once in a while she works, but I don't think she would work as a regular.
It would also be a step down careerwise with her, she'd go from leading her own team to being the one lead and I don't think she'd go for that.
