I can't say anything about the case because, for once, it was really secondary and it was the Bones & Booth relationship that was in the center of the episode plot.
After last season finale with Booth breaking up his engagement with Bones and all the Pelant stories, I was wondering how he would regain Bones trust without telling her why he did what he did. i really like Angela in this episode because she acted like a true friend and protected Bones whatever happened. I liked how everybody meddled in the relationship and the story between booth and brennan. the barman/ex-priest was the intermediate they needed.
I think that this season will focus on how they'll stop Pelant in order to get Bones and Booth married because we all know that is going to happen but how that is a mistery and it will be tricky!
