"After months of anticipation, the news about Jimmy Palmer's adopted baby was a huge letdown."

A letdown true, but also utterly predictable. The fact that just about every scene Palmer has been in for the last season or so has been about his worry and excitement about getting a baby pretty much guaranteed that he'd have the baby pulled away from him at the last moment. When they make such a massive deal about something like this for so long it being a letdown is pretty much assured, it's only when they just spring it on the audience out of nowhere does it really work. What made it even more predictable was the fact that Palmer went for a birth mother to get the baby instead of getting one from an adoption agency, that NEVER ends well on T.V.

I don't buy that Holt is gone forever either. I expect that she'll at least be popping in as a recurring character every once in a while.

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.
