Grey Areas

Bull defends an old psychiatrist friend being sued after one of his patients went on a shooting spree killing his office colleagues.
  • Caught on Tape: Ultimately, the psychiatrist does himself in when Bull asks the woman he's in love with (and who didn't even know who he was) to ask what he'd do to prove his love while secretly recording him.
  • Hopeless Suitor: The psychiatrist has a completely imagined, one-sided relationship with the wife of one of his patient's victims.

  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Bull soon realizes his pyschiatrist friend knew the patient was a time bomb, and gave him the gun, as he was in love with the wife of one of the victims and wanted the husband out of the way. Bull confronts the wife only to be shocked to realize she doesn't even know the doctor and the "love" was totally on his side. He thus gets her to trick the man into confessing on tape to what he did.

How well does it match the trope?
