Killer Sequels: The Gravedigger Returns to "Bones" (Not Jason)


First off, it has to be mentioned that the new "Friday the 13th" movie is opening next week, and I was airheaded enough to have to Google its release date. (For those of you as airheaded as I am, it opens next week - on Friday the 13th.)


But this is, of course, not why I write today. I am so excited about this week's episode of "Bones" because after two seasons of waiting (thank you, writer's strike), we will finally catch the serial killer, the Gravedigger. In Season 2's episode, "Aliens in a Spaceship," Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne) were kidnapped by an unknown killer who would put two victims in an unknown place underground, left to suffocate to death. But for Brennan's amazing staff at the Jeffersonian, two main characters would have become victims themselves, suffocating somewhere beneath the surface, hidden for good. It was an amazing episode. Despite knowing that two main characters would never fall victim to a recurring serial killer (until Zack Addy was revealed to have inexplicably joined up with their other "little problem" Gormogon at the end of Season 3 - oopsIaccidentallywroteascriptaboutit), the episode placed all of us directly in the middle of the panic, and there was no escape. Half the episode was in Brennan's car, under the ground, with Brennan and Hodgins desperately finding ways to contact the outside world and create air so they could buy minutes of nontoxic breathing. The other half took place in the lab, with the entire team not sparing seconds to find their colleagues, nearly reaching the end of their ropes several times. And no one knew who this killer could be.
