Where will the case for innocent Craddick lead after serving 12 years away for a murder he didn’t commit? Will he be free? And what more consequences are charging in. Let’s begin.
Recap For Bull Season 5
Previously on Bull Season 5, we were taken 13 years back into the past. A man carrying a baby is shot in cold blood. The blame is put upon an innocent Arthur Craddick, a father of a 10-year-old. Even though his son asks Arthur not to go, he decides to go hoping it’s a mistake. Craddick meets Dr. Jason Bull to discuss the case. Bull assures Craddick he will be let go. There is only a not-so-great eye witness with weak testimony and some circumstantial evidence built around the case, which doesn’t prove anything.
The next day in court, the trial carries on. The investigating officer Kaminsky talks about the eyewitness. The one who saw Riddick shooting the man in cold blood. Jason Bull goes on to explain how the eye witness testimony is one of the weakest ones. Plus, in this case, the witness is three stories high, in the middle of the night, and woke up from deep sleep due to two gunshots. Plus, the cops showed him six different photos altogether from which he chose Arthur Craddick to be the culprit. The next day though, Jury still decide Craddick be guilty on two counts of murder. The court ends Arthur crying out he didn’t do it.
12 Years Later
Its been 12 years since Arthur was arrested. He calls Dr. Jason Bull to meet him again. Both share greetings and their whereabouts. Arthur looks to give the case another chance. He wants Jason to be a character witness. He thinks it wasn’t Jason’s fault. It was Jury’s fault. So this time, he has the culprit sign the papers for the murder he did if a court decides to ask him about the evidence.
Jason Bull meets Ms. Morgan from Homeland Security to talk about Craddick’s case. They talk about the Jury theories and adjusting trial strategies. They both get over there. Then Arthur Craddick’s son Leo arrives to meet Jason and introduces him to the court. Jason tells Leo even though they have signed confession, saying the same loud in court is different. So he would like to meet the culprit.
The Case Begins
Leo and the lawyers meet the original murderer. He was a contract killer looking to help the mob to expand territory by killing that man. The contract killer Kiril confesses on the video. He killed Ivan and killing the baby in an accident. He is 42 years old and dying, so he intends to confess. Because he didn’t want the baby to die, and he didn’t know she was there. He feels guilty for killing god’s baby.
The trial waits for Kiril the next day, but the news comes out he is dead. On the way, Kiril started coughing up and died. Ivan’s lawyer pushes the confession video away, saying they weren’t there to see. Plus, how they are supposed to take the word of a criminal and serial killer. Thus, calling confession useless and distracting.
After The Break
Leo confronts the officer who put his father in jail for all the wrong reasons. He promises it will be a day of reckoning. Once the trial is back, the judge finds Craddick’s evidence to be full of questions than answers and evidence to be short. So, the trial is denied. If not enough, Craddick’s lawyer manages to reduce Arthur’s sentence.
A Parole hearing is called in with a new jury. But having a jury with a black man testing who has already been booked for two murders. Arthur’s chances seem low as considered by Bull’s team. The parole hearing begins. The one thing odd about the hearing which catches Jason’s eyes is that Ivan’s wife isn’t present. Jason’s team investigates her whereabouts, and they learn about the money and her big house.
The Ending moments
When Ivan’s lawyers still try to convict Arthur, Jason realizes they are trying to defend themselves. Jason confronts Ivan’s wife and threatens her with tax fraud and money laundering. The next day right away, Ivan’s wife appears at a parole hearing. She confesses Arthur can’t be the murderer of his husband. Her husband is a criminal with big names coming after him. Plus, the investigating officer Kaminsky isn’t present.
In the end, Arthur is granted parole. Jason, Arthur, and Leo won. But bad news comes knocking when officers arrive to arrest Leo on account of Kaminsky’s murder.
