[S1E13] You Were Only An Innocent Victim REPACK
Clint: One of the most harrowing cases during this time was the Central Park 5 case in New York in 1989, when a white woman was raped and beaten within an inch of her life while jogging in the park. Five black and brown boys were arrested, charged, and sentenced, and ended up spending between 6 and 13 years in prison. They were, of course, innocent. The boys were between 14 and 16 at the time, but the media talked about them like they were adults, calling them brutal and thugs and psychopaths. In fact, Donald Trump himself took out ads in four city papers, full page ads, calling for the boys to be executed. Here he is talking about it.
[S1E13] You were only an innocent victim
Sam and Dean investigate recent murders where the victims were hundreds of pounds lighter after their deaths. Suspecting witches, the two go undercover at a fancy day spa that all of the victims had attended for weight loss. While Sam is hired as a fitness instructor, Dean takes kitchen duty. After Dean swipes some tainted food and passes out, the guys realize someone is drugging the guests and literally sucking all of the fat out of them until they die.
Meanwhile, Maritza's husband Larry pulled her aside to reveal that he'd looked through the Impala and found clippings and identification which suggested Dean and Sam were hunters. Dean found Maritza attempting to dispose of fat stores, though she insisted the rash of killings weren't her doing. Identifying herself as a Peruvian fat-sucking parasite, Maritza insisted that she and Larry wanted only to coexist peacefully, though her brother, and Dean's boss, Alonso likely grew tired of portion control and fatally fed off the victims. Elsewhere, Larry confronted Alonzo about his behavior, before Alonzo finally killed his sister's husband. Using a special knife obtained from Maritza, Sam and Dean pursued Alonzo to the basement before the creature attacked and nearly devoured Sam. Dean saved his brother at the last moment by severing Alonzo's sucker, ending the threat. In the aftermath, Sam sympathized with Maritza for losing her family, insisting to Dean they had no reason to kill an otherwise innocent creature. Dean initially argued, but quickly agreed to let her return to Peru.
Back at the bunker, Dean, drinking again, admitted to Sam that he didn't feel wrong about saving Sam previously, as it had been the right thing to do. Sam countered that Dean makes himself out to be a savior, when in reality keeping Sam alive has cost far more lives than it has saved thus far. In fact, Sam posited that Dean only saved Sam for his own inability to be alone, as even his self-sacrifices proved equally hollow. Dean insisted his brother would do the same if the situation were reversed, but Sam, to Dean's surprise, flatly disagreed, saying in the same situation, he would not bring Dean back.
Prosecutors on Wednesday said they weren't asserting that Syed is innocent, but they lacked confidence "in the integrity of the conviction" and recommended he be released on his own recognizance or bail.
The dead body of a social worker found in a park reveals clues suggesting that the killer lived with the body for months before dumping it. The body had chipping on the teeth which suggest that they were fed porridge with a spoon by the killer after they were dead. The discovery of a set of remains in Limbo with similar anomalies on the bones as the current victim which was killed six months prior to the current victim's time of death confirms it's a serial killer who poisons their victims with a lethal dose of Propofol and Succinylcholine and uses the corpses as marionettes. Brennan hints that she and the killer are similar in many ways. Brennan blamed herself and Booth for the serial killer's rampage. She remarks that given their track record with catching killers, it would be statistically more likely that if they never quit their jobs, then Allison Monroe would still be alive. At the end of the episode, The Puppeteer is seen elsewhere in a room full of wooden dolls and mannequins hanging like puppets. The killer is on a laptop observing Brennan and Booth through the recorded video from a surveillance camera that was found in the kitchen of the house of one of the suspects. The case still remains unresolved and the serial killer is still at large.
Brennan, Hodgins, and Angela are seen in the Jeffersonian looking at a burning victim. Hodgins notices that the victim is bleeding, but Brennan stated that the dead don't bleed after death. Angela stated to her that "old wounds can cut deep." Brennan looks more closely at the victim, but he suddenly wakes up, alive and in agony. Brennan suddenly wakes up in Booth's car from that nightmare and into reality. They were on their way to a crime scene when Brennan fell asleep for 30 minutes. Brennan stated that she hasn't been sleeping since The Puppeteer missed his interval a few days prior to the current date. Booth tries to reassure Brennan that there was nothing that either of them could have done to stop The Puppeteer, however Brennan tells him that his words are having the opposite intended effect and tells Booth that she will sleep when this serial killer is caught.
Booth and Aubrey have a lead on a puppeteer. They eventually find the Puppeteer's lair in the guy's basement and they even found that the puppet that the Puppeteer was working on earlier was made to look like Brennan. They bring Graham Reynolds into custody trying to ask him who rents his basement, but he claims to have never known his name or seen his face. He mentioned that he tried to see his face once because of his curiosity and he remarks that he "shouldn't have" tried to see his face. When he and Aubrey were looking over the evidence they have regarding the victims, suspects, and the Modus Operandi of the killer, Booth then realizes that the therapist could be the killer. Meanwhile, Brennan is seen in a hypnotic state and cooperating with the therapist by telling him what or who she saw in her dreams. Booth barges in and arrests the therapist, but Brennan believed Dr. Faulk to be innocent and barged out of the interrogation room after having a heated argument with Booth.
While Booth prepares to interrogate the therapist, Brennan returns to the lab while the rest of the team is out. They were sent a message from "Brennan" telling them to shut down the lab and meet them at the Founding Fathers, but Brennan never sent any such message. She then realizes who the killer is as the killer himself walks in, hangs up the phone call, and captures her. Booth discovered that The supposed Puppeteer abducted Brennan and persuaded Dr. Faulk to give him the notes he took when he was talking with her in his office. The rest of the team joins back together and puts together the clues which could identify who the killer might be. Aubrey found out that the killer was musical and likely born sometime after 1978 in Michigan through a song book, with all the songs left in the mix tapes in order which was published in 1978 in Lansing, Michigan, that his Aunt Donna gave him. Through the killer's analysis of the people he worked with and his obsessive analysis on Brennan, Angela deduced that in terms of mathematical and computational linguistics, that the killer is off the charts. Through the way that the bodies were taxidermied and the bones re-articulated and frequently re-positioned, Cam added that he knows Human Anatomy. Hodgins deduced that the killer knows about Robotics or Applied Engineering through the way the killer made a believable counterfeit message which looked like it came from Brennan. Based on the injuries on Melissa Goodman's skeleton, Wendell deduced that the killer is physically declined since he struggled to abduct his most recent victim. Booth, after reading Brandon Faulk's notes on Brennan's nightmares, found out that she mentioned Wendell during their meeting, but she mentioned that his hands were burned as if they were in some kind of an explosion. Aubrey stated that Wendell couldn't be the killer since his hands were never crippled by an explosion. Hodgins stated that Wendell could be a symbol of the person they are looking for. Booth suddenly realizes who the killer may be through the burned hands mentioned in her most recent nightmare and realized that The Puppeteer was someone who used to work at the lab. As Booth leaves, Cam realized what he was thinking and remarks that "it can't be." He then barges into McKinley Psychiatric Hospital and heads into one of the rooms. The Head Nurse runs after Booth to stop him, but stops after Booth turns over a bed cover which was covering a big pile of hard-cover books rather than the person he is looking for. The Head Nurse leaves to call security and Booth stares up at the sky and wonders where The Puppeteer took Brennan, if she was still alive. Brennan then wakes up to a familiar face and voice in an unknown location, the man with all the clues and all the smarts. The person who abducted Bones is revealed to be Dr. Zack Addy, Brennan's original assistant.
After Booth drops Zack off at McKinley Psychiatric hospital, Brennan calls him telling Booth to go back for Zack because they discovered that Roshan is actually The Puppeteer. The team discovered that the fourth victim that they found in The Puppeteer's Lair was not a victim, but the exhumed conjoined twin brother of Mihir Roshan. Karen determined that the personality of Roshan's deceased twin was in conflict with Roshan himself after they were separated. The scene switches to the sanitarium where Zack was almost poisoned by Roshan and attacking the deranged doctor to defend himself, getting the chance to kill him in self-defense but ultimately could not do it. He stabbed Zack in the leg with his pen to disorient him. Before Roshan could kill Zack, Booth barges in and shoots him in the back of the spine, killing him and saving Zack.
