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.

Life's a bitch when you're a witch. This Sunday's episode of Lifetime's Witches of East End (10/9c) finds the all-sorceress Beauchamp clan in emotional turmoil. Mom Joanna (Julia Ormond) is facing charges for a murder committed by a demonic lookalike while daughters Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston) are in a heartbreaking crisis over men.
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...
Heads will roll — and more than a few eyes — in Fox's lavishly entertaining but hopelessly convoluted new supernatural thriller Sleepy Hollow (Monday, 9/8c), which officially kicks off a new season of network premieres. Given how ordinary so many of the networks' new shows are this fall, it seems a bit churlish not to wholeheartedly embrace a series that is anything but ordinary. And yet by the end of an opening hour that gets off to a spectacularly fun start, I wanted nothing more than for it to just shut up with all of the apocalyptic mumbo jumbo.
On the plus side, a star is unquestionably born in Tom Mison, a winning British actor who makes for a dashing and amusing action hero in this bold re-imagining of Washington Irving's iconic Ichabod Crane (from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which we've heretofore seen Disney-fied and Tim Burton-ized). Here conceived as a studly Revolutionary War hero and spy for General George Washington, this Ichabod is mysteriously resurrected into the 21st century, along with the axe-wielding Headless Horseman who cut him down 250 years ago and is soon lopping off heads in the modern-day Hollow.
