LanaSweet , it's a fictional story on a tv show. I never exepct everything to be totally possible. I find myself saying that's not possible with many different shows yet, I'm not watching to learn something scientific or new. If I wanted to do tht I old red a textbook. I want to be entertained ! There are people and groups that are able to hack ino restricted access sites ( think Anonymous ) . Of course government agencies, private groups and banks have safeguards in safe to prevent this. I think the writers have built Pelant up to be a super hacker thus he can hack into a private defense groups computer system and release a drone. I mean come on he supposedly wrote code on a skeleton ! So I look at his character as this genius and super hacker that can access anything. I just really think you are looking too hard at the plot and you have to just accept the plot holes. Please sit back ,relax and just enjoy the show instead.

Oh, gee, I'm sorry @BonesForever, I didn't realize that your opinion was the only one that counted or that you couldn't comment unless it was glowing. Just because mine and @LanaSweet's opinions don't agree with yours doesn't mean you have to be rude and insulting. Everyone has a right to their opinions and to come to an environment like this to have a lively, respectful discussion about them. Grow up.

@BonesForever, how do you figure that your view is more important than mine? Your view doesn't effect mine. Neither should mine effect yours.

Well, @LanaSweet and @Stephanie, just go watch Castle or something (although it is even less believable!). There are a heck of a lot of us who LOVE this season and still love Bones and think the show is going in a very good direction, so just take a long walk on a short pier! In TV shows, you always have to suspend belief to a certain degree--my gosh, it's TV! So of course Bones is something where you suspend disbelief to a degree. Jeez! I found this episode very nail-biting, and Pelant was creepy and snakelike as always. He's a little too omniscient, but he's supposed to be very bright and hard to figure out, and he is! It was very suspenseful, and even took a twist I was surprised by when Flynn was shot while pursuing Pelant with Booth. They've kind of implied that Flynn was tied in somehow with Pelant, so I didn't see that one coming, but we've still got a ways to go on the season. I love Hodgins too when he's into his "manic" state, but that's believable with his baby and his wife in danger. You could almost see the wheels turning in B&B when they were hearing of the dangers to Michael Vincent, Angie and Hodgins, and thinking--that could be Christine or us! Caroline made her usual zany remarks, lightening the atmosphere, but showing her caring for them all in her own irascible way. And I positively cheered to see the blood splat on Pelant's windshield and later seeing his wounds! I'm also looking forward to this next episode too, where everyone starts thinking about life and death more personally. It will be interesting to see how each one reacts, and is also a logical follow-up to this week's storyline.

My question about the money is that Hodgins made a big point of saying how his Cantilever Group is responsible for the majority of the funding for the Jeffersonian. So... if Pelant cleaned out Hodgins' accounts, all of them, including the ones for the Cantilever Group, doesn't that mean the Jeffersonian is broke too? How will they pay for their employees? And all the interns? How will they pay for their very expensive equipment or what must sure cost a lot to run that expensive high-tech equipment? How will the Jeffersonian be able to continue helping the FBI solve crimes if they have no money coming in from Hodgins anymore? That seems like a missed plot point, and it doesn't sound like they're going to deal with that. Stephen makes it sound like they're going at it more from the aspect of Hodgins having to deal with living with a lot less than what he's used to. Which is interesting, but I don't like the plot holes involved. It seems too convenient just to play 'Hodgins has no money anymore.'

Okay - first viewing ... fabulous! Be back later after I've analyzed the whole thing while watching it again! LOVED IT! Way to go, SN, HH, DB and ED!!!

Best thing on TV Monday night (or any night, for that matter!)

Horrible show this week could hardly watch it.

One of the best shows they have had for a while. I hope they finally can get rid of that psycho though. Too nerve wracking.

@Miranda, Stephen Nathan said it was about being regular and if/how Hodg will try to get his money back and to what lengths he'll go. I'm glad to hear it was a private military system but it's still not believable. Surely there would be something in place to prevent one individual from sending a drone into a group of children. Also, Angela is an artist. She is not a genius yet she's able to figure out how genius Pelant is doing what he's doing. I don't really care about that because they've taken the time to lay a foundation for her skills; they just didn't change her overnight so it's not really believable but we're willing to buy it. The writers are no longer laying the foundation they're just throwing things at us out of nowhere like Cam and Arastoo. If the writer's would just take a little care it would show they respect their audience. I know they can do it because they did it superbly seasons 1-6.

I don't think Hodgins and Angela having to live like "regular" people was ever really in question. Of course they own their possessions, but it makes for an interesting dynamic shift in their relationship if now, instead of Jack being the provider he's relying on Angela and her money. As for spreading out his investments, sure, I'm sure he would have, but even taking only his liquid assets would still be a hit.

The season has been incredibly all over the place thanks to those 4 "bonus" episodes that got dumped in our laps, one of which was the Cam/Arastoo reveal.

And he didn't break into a government system. He broke into a private military system by impersonating one of their employees. Angela had access to the drone because they gave her access.
