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.
