BONES “The Prince in the Plastic” Season 7 Episode 3 – You know, I’ve been sort of casually wondering to myself what was going to happen when Bones (and Emily) went on maternity leave and I think I got my answer in this episode. I was a little puzzled at first when Sweets kept trying so hard toget a gun, I mean I liked the idea but I couldn’t imagine why he would really need it.
