If you thought you'd seen the last of the lovable nerd / secret Egyptian dignitary known as Christopher Pelant, think again! Pelant is back on Bones in 2013, and his latest murder is even more deranged than usual.

“The Pelant story will reappear in January,” executive producer Stephen Nathan tells TV Line, adding that Pels “is always going to be hanging over their heads in all of the episodes, but he comes back in earnest.”

Speaking of "hanging over their heads," Bones is currently filming Pelant’s big return, so we're thinking he very well might have something to do with this photo from David Boreanaz (Agent Seeley Booth), which features a dead body suspended over a bed. Gross! No confirmation that this scene definitely has to do with Pelant, but either way we can expect big things. Big like Booth's cocky belt buckle.

“It’s one of the biggest episodes we’ve ever shot” creator Hart Hanson says. "We’re starting to talk about what our season-ender will look like. He may or may not be a part of that.”

We'd love Bones to end with an epic Pelant plot twist. Nothing keeps us going through hiatus like a nerdy murder spree!
