In case you need a quick review, “Bull” stars Michael Weatherly and focuses on his character of Dr. Jason Bull, a psychologist who uses his smarts and experience to understand and manipulate the jury in court cases. Willa Fitzgerald made her appearance in the series in its first season, back in 2017.
In Season 1, Episode 11, “Teacher’s Pet,” Fitzgerald plays the character Susan Bryant, a high school teacher who is in a relationship with her student, Jordan (Jared Kemp). As the student is 17 years old, Bryant’s technically not doing anything illegal, but Jordan’s parents decide to go after her in a civil suit case, and they hire Bull. Of course, it quickly gets complicated when Jordan declares that he’s fully in support of Bryant and that they are in love. Add to that a pregnancy and a reveal that the student isn’t the father, and you’ve got enough drama to challenge even Bull.
The episode is filled with plenty of twists, and fans of Fitzgerald can see the actor in a role that’s a lot different from either “Scream: The TV Series” or “Reacher.” Her appearance in “Bull” came right after her run in the former series ended, so it makes sense that she might’ve wanted to try something new. Fans new and old of Fitzgerald should certainly take a look at her performance in this great “Bull” episode.
