On Monday’s “Bones” season 9 episode, we’re going to see a slightly different side of Sweets in what is sure to be an episode mostly about him. Fed up with having to deal with the bureaucracy and the pain that comes with working with the federal government, Sweets decides to take it upon himself to forge ahead with a new job: Helping out troubled children in need. It’s a noble job, but one that is not going to keep him away from Booth in the same way that he was probably hoping.
The video below more or less serves as a progress report for the character, just for us to see where he is at and also where he could go from here. Bones says that it has been three weeks since he has seen the guy, and Sweets explains that he feels like nobody would have understood his decision to go and try something new for a change. He enjoys the work that he is doing … but Booth still wants to be able to call on him at times if need be.
Well, suffice it to say that David Boreanaz’s character will be doing just that in this episode, and Sweets may also in turn need their help. This should be a fun story that helps forge ahead for these characters, but at the same time we imagine it will be frustrating for Booth / Brennan fans hoping that there will be some sort of actual progress with their relationship and taking down Pelant.
What do you think about this video, and how long do you think Sweets is really going to be away from Booth and Brennan? Be sure to share whatever predictions that you have below! Meanwhile, click here if you have a hankering to see another video clip highlighting the general story of this episode.
