Leo, a client of Nunnelly's firm who is paying his sister's legal expenses, adamantly denies involvement and asserts that the drugs belong to a warring cartel. Nunnelly reveals that if she wins this case, she can leave her firm and start her own, and also offers to make this the last case Bull is obligated to consult with her on. Shortly before voir dire begins, cartel violence sweeps the streets, forcing the judge to order an anonymous jury and rendering Bull's team virtually unable to accurately analyze the jurors. When the US government offers to drop charges against Cecilia in exchange for her turning information about her brother over to the DEA, she refuses until Bull's team discovers that the 911 call that tipped off the DEA was placed by Cecilia's 10-year-old son Peter. Bull enlists the help of the US government and the presiding judge to pull a bit of showmanship to ensure that Cecilia's life is protected for cooperating with the DEA and that Nunnelly can leave the firm without reprimand for having a client jailed.
