How do we love the newly Egyption serial killer known as Christopher Pelant? Let us count the ways. This nefarious nerd is the best thing that's happened on Bones since Parker made that creepy baby mobile (sigh, memories!), and we can't wait for him to come back from abroad to wreak havoc on our geek squad!

Sadly, it'll be a few months until Pelant makes his triumphant return. According to Executive Producer Stephen Nathan, B&B's biggest target won't be back in our nation's capital until January, and show creator Hart Hanson adds that Pelant will be featured in just three or four episodes.

Sigh, that's barely enough time to conduct a murder spree. Here's to hoping Pelant makes it through the season alive –– we'd love him to nab even more screen time next year!
