(CBS)

At the end of the previous episode of 'Bull', Benny Colon gets an offer to run for District Attorney. This would mean a serious change for the TAC if he does leave for the "dirty world" of politics. In the latest episode, he tells Bull (Michael Weatherly) about the offer and Bull doesn't seem entirely convinced whether he would be able to make it at all.

Fans are heartbroken that Benny just might leave the show. "While it may be selfish to keep Benny at TAC, it's also true that politics is a dirty business. Every questionable case Benny touched will be examined with a fine tooth comb and we all know how some of those cases turned out with #Bull and company," a fan wrote.

 "I would support Benny but I would hate every second of it. #BennyRocks #[email protected] @FreddyRdriguez," a fan tweeted. "I don't want to lose Benny either! Change is bad!  #Bull," another tweeted.



 

 

 



 

 

 



 

It would also mean losing Benny, which would be a tough loss for the TAC. Meanwhile, Chunk seems to be taking on cases, which means that the show is making way for him to step up. In the latest episode, Bull assists Chunk as he represents a convict from his law school’s legal aid clinic, a woman accused of killing a guard while trying to escape during a prison transport.

While the prosecution alleges the woman shot the guard as she tried to flee, Chunk argues that she is being falsely accused by a guard who attempted to sexually assault her during the transport. Chunk has a lot to learn, but he's learning fast.

In the previous episode, the TAC witnessed a conflict of interest as both Benny and Chunk were on opposite sides of the spectrum. Yet, the verdict was a wholesome one. Benny swung the court in his favor, but Chunk's client did not have to pay for excessive damages. 

Bull' follows the story of Dr Jason Bull and his firm Trial Analysis Corporation (TAC). Bull is a psychologist and is fully skilled in trial science. He is the head of TAC, a jury consulting firm.  Bull and his employees use their skills to choose the perfect jurors for their clients and helps the clients’ lawyers to form their arguments which would turn the case in their favor.

Bull is nothing less than a mastermind, as he uses his in-depth knowledge of previous data and knowledge of the human psyche to help his clients. 'Bull' airs on CBS on Mondays at 10 pm.
