There is no doubt that tonight’s season 10 premiere of “Bones” was an emotional gut-punch, especially when so many of us did not see it coming.
Even just reading the official synopsis below to next week’s episode “The Lance to the Heart,” you would probably not guess that this was an hour of TV where a character death would be taking center stage at all. John Francis Daley is even listed in the main cast, which was likely a move to ensure nobody knew about Sweets’ fate. Now, we know that this episode will focus heavily on remembering the character, while Booth and company also try to move forward and deal with the conspiracy that got him behind bars in the first place.
Since this synopsis doesn’t contain much information about Sweets, it is a good source for some other information. Take a look:
“To find out who framed Booth for murder, the Jeffersonian team, with the help Special Agent James Aubrey (guest star John Boyd), continues to investigate who is behind a conspiracy within the Federal Government that dates all the way back to J. Edgar Hoover. Then, when foreign DNA is found in a previous victim linked to the scandal, the team is able to narrow down the number of suspects, leading them closer to cracking the case.”
We assume that this is one of those episodes where tissues are necessary, and we just hope that the show slows down enough to really honor the character, who was a fan favorite over the past seven years. Sometimes, the show moves so quickly that this is difficult.
