Spoilers for 'Bull' Season 4 Episode 18 'Off the Rails'

As the season inches to a close, the legal procedural dished out another episode that fans couldn't stop talking about. 'Off the Rails' was about Astrid's baptism and the TAC defending a driver who was involved in a train accident and later has no memory of it. While fans loved the plotline, their reactions on Twitter centered around the baptism plotline. 

"What an absolutely magnificent episode!! I know I keep tweeting this but they just keep getting better and better! Dr. Bull's "BEEP, BEEP", was hysterical and then had tears when he asks Benny to be the Godfather!! Phenomenal!! Thank you for the great television!!!!" tweeted a fan. Another fan felt this episode was as good as a season finale. "Wow! Great episode. This episode made me think that this episode was the season finale, it was that good. Very good."

One fan, in particular, thought the credit should go to Taylor Rentzel (Mackenzie Meehan). "I hope you have good news Taylor #MacKenzieMeehan because you are on fire tonight girl #Bull," he tweeted. The opening encounter between Bull and Benny was loved by fans as "great opening" was tweeted a number of times. "Oh my! That was a terrifying opening! This is going to be a good one," a fan said.

'The Roadrunner Show' references that Bull provides in the final minutes of the episodes were thoroughly enjoyed by fans. "That was a good Bull summation" tweeted a fan. 

And here's a confession from one of the fans: "I've watched every episode of bull. As dumb as this might sound, I thought Danny was played by Aisha Tyler. I no longer trust my brain," she tweeted. 'The Godfather' movie references reminded fans of 'Suits' with a fan playfully asking: "Movie References! Sound familiar? Hmmm!"

For now, there is no official word on whether this will be a curtailed season, as 'Bull' usually hits the 22- episode mark. But what could be counted on is the fact that the legal procedural will most definitely be renewed for a fifth season. Earlier, a Deadline report gave an update on the list of the CBS shows that halted production amid coronavirus concerns. Several drama series, including the three 'NCIS dramas' for CBS, the mothership, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' and 'NCIS: New Orleans' as well as 'Bull' have halted filming.
