Love is in the air on Monday's Bones.
As Booth (David Boreanaz) prepares to testify before a Congressional sub-committee related to his possible promotion, Sweets (John Francis Daley) must step in and help Brennan (Emily Deschanel) with a murder investigation.
"Booth basically assigns Sweets the role of lead FBI agent on the case," John Francis Daley tells TVGuide.com.

Which "two agents will go down" on Criminal Minds? — Jim
It will definitely be two of the regular cast members (read: not Cruz). Both victims suffer gunshot wounds in the first half of the two-part finale Wednesday. And while one team member's wound is only a temporary setback, the other is potentially fatal. The good news: You won't have to wait all summer to find out his or her fate.
I'm so glad 24 is back. What's coming up? — Casey
Though it was fun to see...
Until CBS stops going for Broke, it may be hard for Mom, one of the season's more promising and pungent new comedies, to get the break it, and the title character, deserves. What's happening to CBS on Monday with its once-dominant comedy lineup is a slow-fade version of the freefall NBC experienced with its Thursday lineup in the wake of Friends. Holding on to shows too long (How I Met Your Mother, which could have wrapped this whole thing way earlier), promoting shows too soon with too little to offer (the shrill and increasingly charmless 2 Broke Girls), making odd decisions like keeping the award-winning Mike & Molly on the shelf in favor of an insta-dud like the abysmal We Are Men, this is one of those rare nights when CBS's programming acumen has mostly crapped out. (Monday's loss is, of course, Thursday's gain, with former Monday anchors The Big Bang Theory and, to a lesser degree these days, the played-out Two and a Half Men helping get early sampling for newbies The Millers and The Crazy Ones.)
CBS has given a put-pilot commitment to a half-hour comedy project from John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the screenwriting team behind the 2011 movie Horrible Bosses, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Spoilers! Get scoop on 39 must-watch finales
Although Bones' Season 8 finale teased viewers by finally having Brennan (Emily Deschanel) ask Booth (David Boreanaz) to marry her, the smiles soon faded thanks to Christopher Pelant (guest star Andrew Leeds). While Booth & Co. were ultimately able to stop Pelant from taking out Sweets (John Francis Daley), the serial killer had the last laugh.
Once he learned of Booth and Brennan's engagement, Pelant threatened to kill more innocent people if Booth didn't call off the wedding. What's more, Booth couldn't let Brennan know the real reason behind his change of heart. Although Brennan agreed with Booth's decision, the closing shot proved that her heart has been broken.
So will Brennan revert to her hyper-rational ways of thinking? And is Booth's only way out of this mess to kill Pelant as he threatened to do? We chatted with executive producer Stephen Nathan to get the scoop on what's to come.
