Bones: Is Time Running Out for Sweets/Daisy?

While Bones‘ Booth and Brennan continue their endless romantic tango, Sweets may want to start thinking about dancing double time before he loses his own lady love, Daisy — and for good.

When last the Fox series checked in on the quirky couple, Sweets had gone ring shopping (for a second time, mind you), only to ultimately flake out. That left his buddy Booth the only one to break away from the jeweler with bling in tow. (And we all know how that turned out.)

“Sweets was sort of scared into [realizing] that rushing into marriage so quickly might not necessarily be the best idea for a young man such as himself,” Daley told us at a Saturday evening PaleyFest event reuniting the cast of TV’s short-lived Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared. “So I think he’s taking a little bit of time…. You know, playing the field.”

Daley claims that as far as he knows, the state of the Sweets/Daisy romance is “up in the air,” yet he suggests that his alter ego “could very well” reconsider his decision and pop the question anew. “It could be in the next episode!”

More realistically, resolution for that relationship is due to come several episodes down the line. Carla Gallo (an alum of Undeclared) confirms for us that on the heels of filming roles for a Cameron Crowe movie (We Bought a Zoo) and a pilot (The CW’s Danni Lowinski), she is using a break in her busy non-Bones schedule to return as Daisy towards season’s end. But for what exact purpose?

“I would like a proposal. I’m hoping for a proposal, but I don’t know…,” Gallo says, acknowledging that after putting off Sweets’ first overture, Daisy later swallowed the engagement ring, committing it to a rather (ahem) not-so-sweet fate. Considering how that went, Gallow frowns, “I feel like maybe a girl doesn’t get a second proposal.”

What do you think the future holds for Bones‘ other unpredictable pairing? Do you suspect that Sweets and Daisy’s fate may directly correlate to that of Gallo’s CW pilot? (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)
