With all the pregnancy gossip and flashback-monitoring going on lately, it’s been easy to lose track of one of the many exciting aspects of Bones’ upcoming season: the “tech-savvy” new serial killer.  But TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich has just what we need to get the big bad back in the spotlight: a juicy scoop-buffet.

Bones gets top billing at Matt’s Inside Line today, and for good reason!  All the most pressing info on Booth (David Boreanaz)’s and Brennan (Emily Deschanel)’s new nemesis is there.  His name is Pellant (how do we pronounce that?  Pe-lant or Pell-ant?), and a technological run on the Department of Defense has landed him under house arrest with a tracking device on his ankle.  Yet somehow this “hacktivist” is piling up bodies all around the D.C. area -- and without internet access, to boot!  Something about this sounds familiar...the guy’s not exactly a law-abiding citizen, is he?

In any event, Pellant sounds like the perfect bad guy for our heroes.  He’s certainly got the intellect to give Brennan a run for her money, and we can’t wait to see the inevitable interrogation scene between him and Booth!
