It seems the Pelant story line on Bones just won't die.
Although Booth (David Boreanaz) ended Pelant (Andrew Leeds) once and for all with a gunshot to the heart earlier this season, the cyber serial killer makes yet another unsettling appearance to Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the show's midseason premiere (Friday at 8/7c, Fox).

"We just want to confirm the fact that she's haunted by this, that Pelant has had an impact on them," executive producer Stephan Nathan tells TVGuide.com of the spooky twist. "While he's gone, the impact on everything that he's done is still with them, which will inform some other stories in the future, although Pelant won't really be a part of them. There are a couple of loose ends for us to clean up, but the series is moving forward. We're not going to go back to Pelant much more."
However, the hints Pelant dropped before he died about another serial killer live on and take on scary new life on Friday's episode...
Bones fans will get a double dose of action this week.
The show will air a new episode on Monday (8/7c, Fox) before shifting into its new timeslot (Fridays at 8/7c) later in the week. And even though lead characters Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) recently got married, executive producer Stephen Nathan insists the show is nowhere near finished.

"It is a new era, but we never thought [the wedding] was the end," Nathan tells TVGuide.com...
When the Bones producers announced at Comic-Con in July that Booth and Brennan would indeed tie the knot this season, many fans were surprised to learn how early in the season it would happen.
And they weren't alone! "I thought if we ever got married, it would be the series finale," star Emily Deschanel tells TVGuide.com...
Until CBS stops going for Broke, it may be hard for Mom, one of the season's more promising and pungent new comedies, to get the break it, and the title character, deserves. What's happening to CBS on Monday with its once-dominant comedy lineup is a slow-fade version of the freefall NBC experienced with its Thursday lineup in the wake of Friends. Holding on to shows too long (How I Met Your Mother, which could have wrapped this whole thing way earlier), promoting shows too soon with too little to offer (the shrill and increasingly charmless 2 Broke Girls), making odd decisions like keeping the award-winning Mike & Molly on the shelf in favor of an insta-dud like the abysmal We Are Men, this is one of those rare nights when CBS's programming acumen has mostly crapped out. (Monday's loss is, of course, Thursday's gain, with former Monday anchors The Big Bang Theory and, to a lesser degree these days, the played-out Two and a Half Men helping get early sampling for newbies The Millers and The Crazy Ones.)
David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have spent a week at Walt Disney's historic Golden Oak Ranch in Santa Clarita, Calif. But this is not a relaxing getaway for the Bones stars. They are here shooting scenes in which their characters, Special Agent Seeley Booth and Dr. Temperance Brennan, go undercover as their trashy alter egos Tony and Roxy to investigate a murder at a couples' retreat. During a break in filming, Boreanaz, sporting a tank top, red velour sweats and a thick gold chain, sits next to his leading lady, who is dressed down in tight blue slacks and oversize shades, to talk about the drama's ninth season. It's the year the crime-solving duo say "I do" in a guest-star-filled wedding (Ryan O'Neal and...
