Bull season 3 episode 9 spoilers: William Sadler to play a priest

Bull season 2 episode 7Bull season 3 episode 9 is airing on CBS come Monday night, and we certainly have a sense already that this is far from your ordinary episode of the series. For starters, you’re going to have a priest accused of a terrible crime in a hit-and-run!

Former Roswell star William Sadler (whose other credits include stints on Power, Hawaii Five-0, and Damages) has been cast on the CBS drama as a priest who finds himself in a precarious position — accused of a crime that he did not commit. Unfortunately, the nature of his job makes it impossible for him to actually reveal who the responsible party is. For more, just take a look at the Bull season 3 episode 9 synopsis below:

“A Higher Law” – Bull agrees to have TAC represent a priest who is charged in a fatal hit-and-run after he’s found behind the wheel of the church van involved in the crash. But the case is complicated when the priest claims that the actual driver confessed to him, but he can’t reveal that person’s identity due to the confidentiality that comes with confession, on BULL, Monday, Dec. 10 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This episode, at least when you get beyond the nature of the character accused, feels very much like vintage Bull, at least in that you’ve got an almost-insurmountable case for the title character at the start of it and over the course of the hour, you are going to have to wait and see if there is a good way for them to climb themselves out of the hole. We imagine that this is going to be a rather-tough challenge for him just because a jury may not be altogether interested in buying a story like this without any sort of tangible information to back it up, regardless of whether or not Sadler’s character is telling the truth. It’s easier to have faith at church than it is being in a courtroom, a place where almost everything has a tendency to be cut and dry.

If this episode does turn out to be the final one of the year (CBS does not tend to announce “fall finales” in the same way that other networks do), at least we’ve got a pretty good sense that the show is really concluding things with the biggest bang imaginable. This is a strong case with a memorable guest star and hopefully, something that will have people talking for a rather-long time.
