‘Bull’ Searches for a ‘Christmas Miracle’ in New Photo of Upcoming Episode

by Joe Rutland

If you are looking for a “Christmas Miracle,” then you can join Michael Weatherly of the CBS drama Bull in a search for one, too.

Ahead of Thursday night’s show, a photo was released on its Instagram account.

Weatherly plays Dr. Jason Bull, a psychologist and a trial-science expert. He leads the TAC, or Trial Analysis Corporation.

The show is actually inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw. He serves as an executive producer of this drama.

In Thursday’s show titled Snowed In, the synopsis reads, “Bull needs a Christmas miracle when he takes on a sports agency’s young assistant charged with providing a star client lethal drugs.”

Besides Weatherly, the show also stars Geneva Carr, Christopher Jackson, Jamie Lee Kirchner, MacKenzie Meehan, and Yara Martinez.

Bull has been a staple of CBS’ Thursday night schedule for six seasons.

Will ‘Bull’ Actress Marissa Morgan Be Departing From The CBS Drama or Not?

So, the rumor mill has been cranking up about actress Geneva Carr on Bull. She plays Marissa Morgan.

Will she be leaving? Well, rumors keep swirling.

An article from Looper indicates that this might have to do with a plot around Weatherly’s character.

He’s charged with jury tampering. And, this situation seems to make fans think there will be some changes. 

So, Bull executive producer Kathryn Price spoke to TV Line about Carr remaining a “key player.” Even though her character will be embarking on an empowerment journey, the character is re-evaluating her role at TAC.

Carr, in a 2016 interview with Parade, spoke about her character’s relationship with the main character.

“Marissa knew Dr. Bull for about 10 years,” Carr said. “They were very good friends. There’s never been any romance. Marisa was the first person he called and said, ‘How can we make this work? What can we do?’ That’s when she created the matrix and the algorithm that’ll predict how people will vote.”

Actress Talks About Working With Weatherly and Listening To His Advice

So, she also has an offscreen working connection with Weatherly.

“I call him my guru now,” Carr said. “I can’t call him my boss, I can’t even call him my colleague. He is always giving me advice.”

But Weatherly has some sound advice, the actress said.

“I was nervous and scared that they were going to replace me,” Carr said. “Or the director was not going to like me. Michael said, ‘I’m going to give you the best advice that I was ever given. Marissa Morgan is you. The more you let yourself be that person and don’t layer anything onto it, and don’t ask but find her in you, the more we will believe.'”
