Where We Left Off: Booth and Brennan got engaged! But after fending off cyber serial killer Pelant's latest attack against Sweets, Pelant warned Booth to break off the engagement lest Pelant kill five innocent people. Booth agreed, breaking Brennan's heart.
What's Next: Fret not, 'shippers — there will be a Booth-Brennan wedding this season! But before the couple makes it down the aisle, they still have to sort through the emotional baggage of Booth's lie. While Brennan worries that the couple is doomed, Booth consults two figures from his past: an ex-priest (Mather Zickel) and an old friend-turned-CIA Agent (Freddie Prinze Jr.). Regardless of the advice, Booth knows what he must do. "For Booth, it's a simple equation: I can't be happy until Pelant is dead," creator Hart Hanson says. "[It's] tough on Booth. He's not a murderer or an executioner. He's a good, just man. But we're going to push him to the brink."
