Don’t get us wrong: We love Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) on Bones. He’s the perfect mesh of quirky, adorkable, and charming — sure to bring a smile to your face whenever it’s needed most.

The thing is, we never really imagined Sweets as the badass field agent type. You know: Busting down doors, making arrests, brandishing a gun … that sort of stuff. But you know what? Based on Bones Season 7, Episode 3: "The Prince in the Plastic," all of that might be about to change.

Tonight we saw Sweets do his best to earn his gun certification. Booth didn’t seem to think he could do it. For a moment there, we weren’t sure either.

The ever-cheery Daisy (Carla Gallo), though, never lost faith in her beloved Lancelot. In the end, she turned out to be correct. Lance passed the test, and Booth (semi-reluctantly) handed out the okay for mild-mannered Dr. Sweets to carry a gun with him at work.

But do you think Sweets is really competent enough to yield a weapon? We saw some of those practice shots … and we’re still not convinced. Did Booth make the right decision giving him a gun, or do you think the choice will come back and haunt him later down the road?
