'Bull' Season 5 Episode 2: Will Benny leave show with offer to run for DA? Fans say exit would 'break hearts'
'I hope Benny is not leaving the show and this is their way of transitioning Chunk to his spot,' wondered a worried fan
It was an intense episode of 'Bull', as Benny and Chunk found themselves on opposite sides of the spectrum as they chose to represent a plaintiff as well as the defendant. The case was a unique one: There were a group of people who were staying in a building where they weren’t paying rent and one day a beam came down.
They died in the accident, along with a young couple in bed together and there was nothing the police or the District Attorney’s office could do about it because this group was known as squatters, who didn't have rights in the building. The dead girl's mother Evelyn decided to sue Lily Knowles, an artist dropout, who had also moved into the building.
Lily had complained about the problems with the building and had moved away from the precarious beams, asking the couple to move there. She hadn't expected a torrential rainfall and that the beams would fall and kill anyone.
Chunk decided to be a pro-bono advocate for Lily while Benny chose to represent Evelyn. Benny swung the court in his favor as he used Lily's text messages of the previous night. However, the verdict was a wholesome one: Lily just had to pay Evelyn one dollar for damage though Evelyn had won the case.
While Chunk was busy licking his wounds over Benny's prowess at court, Benny was approached at the end by a man, who asked him if he would like to run for District Attorney. Benny has come a long way, and it would be a shame to see him go. Fans are confused about whether this means is Benny (Freddy Rodriguez) leaving the show. "Wait what does that mean? Is Benny might be leaving if he takes the job? We like Benny @BullCBSFreddyRdriguez #Bull," a fan tweeted.
"I hope... Benny is not leaving the show and this is their way of transitioning Chunk to his spot #Bull," a fan tweeted. "I'm anxious to see more Chunkalicious in the courtroom, but losing Benny would break my heart. #TeamBenny #[email protected]@ChrisisSingin @FreddyRdriguez," another wrote. "DA Benny Colon? Don’t know how to feel about that...#Bull," a fan tweeted.
