For a minute there, it honestly looked like much-hyped Bones Season 7 guest star Ben Savage was going to be the killer on  Season 7, Episode 4: “The Male in the Mail.”

Seriously? Cute little Cory Matthews from Boy Meets World would turn out to be the one who brutally sliced a man with a guillotine-quality postal worker equipment? For a while, we honestly thought it would be so!

It broke out hearts. Literally, we were crushed at the thought of dear Ben Savage ending up as a vicious murder. (It was almost as heartbreaking as that horrible yellow Hawaiian T-shirt his character was forced to wear. Um? Eww.)

Lucky for us, the left-handed catch was simply a red-herring, and that random stoner guy from earlier in the episode ended up being the real killer.

What do you think, Bones fans? Do you wish Ben Savage would have been the killer … just for the fun of seeing goofy little Cory Matthews go all evil on us, of course! Or are you relieved he didn’t end up being the bad guy?
