Bones Season 8: Sweets and Pelant
“… [we] want to have a young, brilliant killer who would be an opposing force not only to Brennan, but also to our young, brilliant but not evil Dr. Sweets.” —Stephen Nathan, 2012
At this stage of the Pelant arc, Pelant has been a real opposing force to Brennan, but he has yet to be one for Sweets.
IMO that means that once the whole Pelant-frames-Brennan fiasco is resolved early next season, his focus will probably shift to Sweets for a while. After all Stephen Nathan has said that Pelant will come back periodically in season 8, and that he will remain a threat to all of our main characters. So, what is it going to be?
Would it be a chilling encounter between the two of them, one with long-lasting effects like the one Sweets had with that evil Heather Taffet?
Or, perhaps Pelant will expose Sweets’ dark past and use it to manipulate him?
Or what about a kidnapping? Is he going to try to kill Sweets? (Note: Sweets has yet to be kidnapped by any serial killers yet, so it seems like a good time)
I mean, here is the thing: Sweets is the person who singlehandedly identified Pelant out of dozens of profiles as the perpetrator of the murders in The Crack in the Code, a fact that Booth made clear to Pelant when he and Sweets werevisiting the psycho for the first time.
Meanwhile, all that the Jeffersonian squints are able to do so far is to operate based on the evidence that Pelant made them discover (true for both Crack and the Finale). Evidence which, btw, led to implicate Brennan for a murder. IMO, the only way to beat Pelant for good, is to predict his behavior. In that regard, Sweets, someone who according to Booth “knows the [Pelant] case better than anyone” and is “the best profiler” of the Bureau, is a threat to Pelant.
We’ll see which one of the above (or perhaps even other scenarios) turns out to be the case.
