Tamara Taylor on “Creepy” Pelant Episode, Plus Which Family Member Is Back? — Exclusive
Pelant is heading back to Bones, and so is another familiar face! Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Bones‘s Tamara Taylor (Cam) at the 2013 FOX All-star Party on January 8 for peek at what’s to come this season.
From the return of supervillain Pelant, to what’s in store for Cam’s, well... complicated love life, here’s a look at what is in store for the team.
Wetpaint Entertainment: We were talking to Stephen, and he promises more of Cam and Aristoo’s love story.
Tamara Taylor: Yeah. We haven't seen Pej [Vahdat (Aristoo)] for a minute, but I think he’s in the next episode.
So what did you think of the reveal?
I thought it was really sweet. I loved the way that they dealt with it. It was a wonderful surprise. It was really romantic.

Why was he the perfect guy?
I don't know. I thought it was an interesting [...] — It revealed a side to him that we haven't seen before, and we got to see this real girlish, sort of vulnerable side of Cam that we don't see very often. So I think it was just a fun combo.
He’s an employee. It’s a little awkward.
Right, awkward, maybe a little inappropriate even, but, hey, hasn't stopped me before.
Your daughter's gyno…
Oh, yeah. Angela's ex‑husband, I’ve done it all. Cam has no bounds.
What is coming up? Is there anything you can tease as far as the episodes coming up?
Well, we've got the dance episode coming. We have a super creepy Pelant episode coming up that I think is going to be really, really great. I think it's going to be one of the strongest ones this season because Pelant is frightening, and the lengths that he goes to are terrifying, to potentially take lives. I mean, he means business, and he's really smart, really smart. And this time, he gets the better of us, but at least we all come out alive.
The last episode we shot before the holidays, Michelle came back. She comes into town to visit, but doesn't tell me she's in town because she just wants to hang with her beau. And I end up weaseling it out of him and having to confront her. So it ends up being a hot mess. So totally fun. It's nice to have Michelle back.
How did you feel about the announcement you guys are getting a ninth season?
So glad. What a nice thing to have happen today. You hear rumors, but nothing's official until it's official.
What do you still want to explore?
I keep wanting to mine for Cam’s deep, dark past. There's got to be something dark in there. Her stripper past, or her addiction to meth, who knows? It's something interesting hopefully.
