Sweets' love life has been noticeably missing from the season 9 landscape of Bones. However, that drought is over, at least seemingly over with the addition of a new intern named Jessica Watten ~ guest star Laura Spencer.
"Booth is very busy preparing for a Congressional hearing related to his promotion, so Sweets takes over the investigation," executive producer Stephan Nathan says. "He has a new intern to contend with, [and] there's a little bit of conflict and a touch of a power struggle." But don't rule out further exploration of this pairing down the line. "The relationship is terrific," Nathan teases.
