“The Bullet in the Brain,” David Boreanaz‘s third directing effort in six seasons, marks the conclusion of the gravedigger arc. And from episode title, synopsis and first images, it appears as though her appearance might be brief. Needless to say, spoilers and speculation ahead:
Convicted murder and serial suffocate-r Heather Taffet (Deirdre Lovejoy) arrives at court for her appeal early in the episode, when the long-hyped sniper makes his first appearance, presumably taking her out in the process. The brain in the episode’s title is her own.
So with Taffet finally out of the way — let’s shed a tear, shall we? — the new big bad’s work is hardly over. And through some set of circumstances, he targets the Jeffersonian gang.
The effects of his pursuit won’t be revealed, obviously, until the episode happens. But we’re still banking on a certain somebody’s demise.
