Bull has staged an NCIS reunion, with Sasha Alexander directing the April 28 episode of the Michael Weatherly-led drama, and while we may not see the two onscreen together, CBS has released photos of them behind-the-scenes.
“Sasha is just fantastic,” Geneva Carr (who plays Marissa Morgan) told TV Insider while discussing the episode she directed (which aired on March 31). “It’s so nice to have a friend of Michael’s on set, someone who has known him as long as anyone, and she’s super supportive and funny and really is enjoying herself and we are having the best time.”
In April 28’s “Opening Up,” Bull is sidelined with a back injury, and Marissa and Chunk Palmer (Christopher Jackson) are forced to go to court without him to defend her closest childhood friend, Kyla (Annika Boras), a tech CEO accused of wrongfully terminating an employee. Plus, Danny (Jamie Lee Kirchner) contemplates what she wants out of life after a near-death experience.
With that injury, Bull “is gonna have to rely on his team in a way that he never has before,” Carr previewed. “And so there’s really interesting things that happen between the team members, and Marissa and Chunk kind of go head to head in this one. And Danny pretty much has the test of her life. She has a really big scare in the episode and she’s fighting to find her balance again, and it’s some of the best work that she’s ever done.”
