As he unlocks his front door he is shot in the head.

Bull enters a restaurant to meet Marissa and her new man. He is not having a good time and hates the new guy immediately but is torn because he can tell how happy Marissa is with him. Bull gets a call from his old college roommate, Mack who is in jail. Bull heads out to meet him immediately. Mack tells Bull several witnesses heard him threaten to kill Pat but he didn’t do it. Pat was dead when he got to his house. Bull doesn’t think he can help because he doesn’t know the Native American Tribal system but Mack convinces Bull he is his only hope.

Benny arrives to help start putting together Mack’s defense. Bull tells Benny that Mack and he were great friends in college and started holding illegal card games together. They made a lot of money but when the dean found out Mack was expelled but never told about Bull’s involvement. He owes him. As Benny and Bull talk Tamia enters. Tamia is Mack’s court-appointed attorney. Tamia tells them about the rules of the court. Benny can’t be Mack’s attorney since the chief of the tribe has appointed him. The chief will act as the judge and they only need a majority rather than a unanimous verdict to convict Mack of murder.

The trial begins and the chief welcomes Bull. They will have two days to prepare for the trial to begin presenting evidence. Mack is granted bail which means Bull will have to come up with $100,000 to get Mack out of jail. Bull pulls money from IRA to pay the bail. Mack joins the team in New York to help prepare.

Bull goes to visit Mack at his house to see how he is holding up after the first day of the trial. Mack is gone and it is obvious he has packed up and run away. Bull finds Mack in a bar drinking. He tells him they are even and leaves. Bull’s team learns that there were over 100 car thefts at the casino before Pat put in cameras. Someone was making a lot of money before Pat stopped the car stealing ring. It could be the person who killed Pat. Bull learns there is only one person on the reservation that has the tools and space to take the cars apart and make money. It just happens to be the same businessman who is now on Mack’s jury. Bull jumps at the information. It is highly likely that this man, Joe is the

Bull jumps at the information. It is highly likely that this man, Joe is the actual killer. The trial resumes but Mack isn’t there.
