Bones season 9 returns to Fox on Friday night at 8 p.m. with episode 12, “The Spark in the Park.”
In the episode, the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Lana Brewster, a girl whose remains are delivered to Brennan and Booth’s home by someone who believes her death 18 years ago was no accident.
The team discovers that Lana was murdered and her death was covered up, making people from her past key suspects, including her ex-boyfriend.
Meanwhile, Brennan starts having dreams again about evil tech genius Pelant, and about a potentially more heinous killer, whom she realizes could be involved with Lana’s death, according to the episode description.
The “Ghost Killer,” the so-called successor to Pelant’s throne of terror, will kind of be introduced in the January 10 episode.
“We will know that he or she — most probably a she — exists,” executive producer Stephen Nathan told TVLine.
Also, Wendell “is greeted with a pretty shocking health concern” that will be dealt with in the final episode as well.
And Booth and Brennan are dealing with things that newlyweds and parents face, Nathan said.
This is the episode before the season finale, which will air January 17.
