Season 7 Episode 13 “The Past in the Present” Promo

“Evil tech genius Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds), a suspect in a previous case Brennan and Booth handled, is back in court on appeal. Knowing what he is capable of, Brennan and Booth inform the judge that he is a suspect in two murder cases. Then, Brennan and Booth are called to the scene of a new murder. After determining the victim is Brennan’s friend, who also is linked to Pelant, the Jeffersonian team works to prove he is guilty once and for all. But when law enforcement examines the team’s findings, key pieces of evidence are tied to Brennan and suspicion falls on her.”

There’s no way that Pelant’s appeal will go any way but how it should, right? They’re going to have something bigger to deal with at the same time as they try to prove what Pelant’s capable of. Who’s in danger now?

The Bones season 7 finale promo for episode 13, “The Past in the Present” (below) begins with the appeal hearing. Booth explains he’s a person of interest in two murder investigations. However, the team is going to be called to a new crime scene, and Brennan recognizes the victim: “I know this man. Pelant killed my friend.” The problem is that there’s video footage of Brennan the night Ethan disappeared. Pelant’s framing her, but how will they prove it?

Hodgins and Cam are going to find another message from Pelant. It’s another code. Will Hodgins be able to figure it out? Booth is relieved of his gun and badge, and that leaves him wondering what he’s supposed to do. However, it’s how the promo ends which is the most concerning. Pelant is in Christine’s room, and when Booth gets a call from Brennan, he runs for the courthouse exit.

With Pelant showing them that he can go wherever he wants, they’re going to have to do something to protect themselves and protect their daughter. What are they going to do to make sure that happens? How will Max be involved? Will they once again lose someone from the team to a serial killer?

What do you think of the Bones season 7 episode 13 preview of the finale, “The Past in the Present”?
