Why is 'Bull' Season 5 Episode 8 not airing this week? Here's what you can expect when CBS legal drama returns
'Bull' will not be airing today but will return on February 8 at 10 pm.
The past few episodes of Season 5 are a stark difference from what we've seen before in the previous seasons; they are far more intense. As there are only 16 episodes this season, the writers doling out unusual plotlines, such as a gay pastor caught in a twisted murder plot, a case of medical malpractice and a wife being framed for her husband's extremist actions, there's a lot of character development making the hit CBS legal procedural more riveting, including incorporating Covid-19 and giving Benny Colon (Freddie Rodriguez) a new arc.
Unfortunately, there won't be any episode on February 2 on CBS, but instead, we'll see are re-runs. Although an official statement isn't issued by the network for not airing the episode, we suppose this would have to do with the production. There's no synopsis of the new episode and we just have to play guessing games with the title 'Cloak and Beaker'. The previous episode of 'Bull' became a favorite with fans, due to its gripping and grueling storylines, and of course, Benny was at the center of it.
Benny displayed his deduction skills, presence of mind and expertise as an attorney for the n-th time, as he rescued a woman from being arrested for a crime she had no idea about. Her husband had planted a car bomb for an ATF agent, killing him and his two sons. The woman's DNA was found all over the scene of the crime and an old video of her playing with her son at an explosives storage area was revealed at court. It was an impossible case to crack and even Benny was sure that there was no chance.
Nevertheless, he discovered that one of the FBI agents had gone undercover in a chatroom to speak with the terrorists. This points to the knowledge that they knew about the murder beforehand but didn't do anything about it because they thought the details were rather vague and were not sure if the man would carry it out. Twisting this knowledge to the best of his abilities, Benny saved another life. This just proved that if Benny indeed runs for DA, his loss would weigh heavily on TAC, a fact that Bull recognizes.
'Bull' airs on Mondays at 10pm on CBS.
