    Agreed! A good actress backing up an interesting character. Glad they didn't actually make her emotional at the end. If they can stay true to the anti-social aspect then it could be a great development.

    This is not my usual type of show but I like the trial psychology angle.

    In general, I think Bull has been much better this season. Can't put my finger on exactly what's different, but I've been enjoying it more.

    Less time spent on picking the jury perhaps. I don't remember them spending any time on it this episode.

    IIRC, they asked a few (3?) jurors questions and then excused one of them.

    The most idiotic part of this series is Bull sitting at the defense table giving visual signals to his attorney, for ALL to see, whether or not to accept a juror (ie, finger across throat to dismiss/cut the juror or an enthusiastic not to accpet).

    There are a lot of things about this show that bug me, but I really like it for reasons I cannot explain.

    And yes, this was a good episode!!!

    If the prosecutor has challenges left, shouldn't they automatically dismiss jurors that Bull wants? :)

    In real life, there would be a lot more deception involved than happens in the show. Bull would have a lot more signals, and they would be coded so they were not obvious. Sometimes Bull would bluff that they wanted a juror, hoping that the opposing counsel would dismiss them. But I think (in cases where the context is ambiguous) we can assume that most of the jury selection scenes we are shown occur when opposing counsel is out of challenges and Bull can choose whomever he wants.

    I don't feel any difference except the absence of Cable. Not sure I like her replacement so I hope she's not there for long. Bull is more tolerable this season but that's kind of the point. Benny continues to be my favorite character.

    I like her, but she's there often late nights on a whim, with not often a mention of what's happening with her little kid...

    Also, what was the deal with getting rid of Cable again? Something with the actress?

    oh, and I've said it before, I like this show a lot, DESPITE me thus indirectly supporting Dr. Phil, who I dislike a lot. It's one I usually watch day of, since CBS shows are no longer on Hulu (I don't remember if THIS one was at all, in the last year or so I had Hulu).

    Apparently she's directing a movie that conflicted with the filming. Which puzzles me even more why the decided to kill her character off instead of just having her MIA or something else. Then she could have returned later.

    Perhaps she told them to write her off - the movie she's directing would probably take a couple of years from concept to release, which means she'd be out for up to 3 seasons depending on the schedule. For a show that's only been around two seasons, having her return potentially in season 6 would be a "who are you?" situation, assuming Bull is even still around that long.

    It would probably be easier for her to return as a new character in season 6, assuming most would've forgotten about her. At the very worst, she could be Cable's long lost sister or something.
