"Bones" Won't Be The Same Without Sweets
"The world's a lot better than you think it is..."
Dr. Lance Sweets died in a parking lot in the Season 10 premiere of Bones. John Francis Daley had played the beleaguered FBI psychologist since Season 3, where we met him as a 22-year-old with a doctorate in psychology.
In his first scene in the series, Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) insults Sweets' "meaningless exercises," Booth (David Boreanaz) insults his youth, and Brennan says, "I don't care how young you are" — which makes him smile — before she adds, "I've never believed in psychotherapy." In his final moments, the dying man comforted Booth and Brennan: "The world's a lot better than you think it is." Earlier in the episode, Brennan calls his discipline "pseudo-science," but she also calls him a friend.
