This week’s episode of “Bull” opens on the Crawford brothers, Charlie, 13, and Theo, 17, home alone one afternoon. Charlie persuades his older brother to open their father’s locked gun safe for a little show-and-tell. Charlie wants to hold the gun, and while Theo is resistant, he acquiesces. Hearing a ruckus and fearing Mom and Dad have returned home, Theo leaves the room momentarily for a little recon. As he re-enters the room, Charlie shoots his brother point-blank.

Cut to Dr. Bull, Benny Colón, Mr. and Mrs. Crawford, and Charlie, the surviving son, are all meeting with the Assistant District Attorney and lead detective. Charlie has been charged with manslaughter, but – because Dr. Bull is miracle worker and smooth talker – the ADA reduced the charge to negligent homicide with probation. M’kay. (And the fact Glover asked the lead detective if he was “okay with that” was downright comical.)
