John Francis Daley’s Sweets Finds New “Bones” Love Interest

Tonight’s episode of Bones, titled “The Drama in the Queen,” has Sweets (John Francis Daley) garnering hard earned respect of Brennan (Emily Deschanel) as well as finding entering a new romance with intern Jessica Warren (Laura Spencer). In a recent interview, Daley explains why Brennan starts to appreciate Sweets’ handling of a recent case.

“She likes that I’m playing by the book a little more when I’m less focused on the psychological aspects of solving the murders and more from the strictly FBI agent perspective,” said Daley who, along with writing partner Jonathan M. Goldstein, penned  Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. “It was a lot of fun to be able to take the lead and order people around. Of course they all mock me but that is to be expected with Sweets and the Jeffersonian staff. But I definitely earned Brennan’s respect and then butt heads with their new intern, Jessica Warren, who doesn’t like to play by the rules so obviously Brennan has an issue with that, as does Sweets, who only wants to make sure that he doesn’t do anything wrong, and you know, be as diligent as possible.”

John Francis Daley also expects a bit of criticism over Sweets’ involvement with Jessica Warren, especially from diehard Bones fans who want a Sweets and Daisy (Carla Gallo) redux. “Oh, absolutely,” said Daley. “So there will be Jessica Warren haters the second Jessica Warren is introduced. It’s sort of part of the show. I mean, I remember how many Sweets haters there were after my first episode. I feel like it’s kind of a rite of passage that we all go through.”
