    So Deluca gets a sister. What about Alex’s sister or mom I would love to see them.

  2. Dominique says:

    i like how they’re giving more storyline to deluca that isn’t about romance, but if anyone should have their family introduced, it should be alex. i would love the meet his sister, last we heard she was also going to med school.

  3. Fido says:

    If they even hint at a potential Sister & Alex hockup, well I’ma gonna scream.

    • Lohan says:

      I don’t think she will hook up with her brother’s attacker. She’s clearly a new love interest for Arizona since Minnick wasn’t well received. Remember her and DeLuca live together.

  4. Kevin Tran says:

    Minka Kelly guest starring on Bull. That’s something but FNL has been her best in a TV series.

  5. grazelled says:

    Really good to hear they’re bringing back Jill Flint’s attorney character on Bull instead of Eliza Dushku’s. ED may be a good actress but there was something off about her character on the show. Jill’s seemed to have more warmth or just fit better.

  6. Phil says:

    Please let this lead to a plot away from the forced attraction to Jo. Remember when DeLuca lived with Arizona and was good friends with her? How often was that important? When she came back after DeLuca got beaten, I had actually forgotten they lived together and got along.

    • Phil says:

      And I see people asking for Alex’s family instead. Why? We just had a plot involving his estranged father, and we’ve met his brother. That’s two on-screen characters, and that’s only counting the blood relatives, cause we have also seen his father’s second wife he also abandoned. DeLuca has his mother mentioned once and that’s it.

    Is there any hospital in history more nepotistic than Seattle Grace/Grey-Sloan Memorial?

  8. Stacy says:

    Do characters on this show have brothers, lol? Meredith has all sisters. Owen’s sister is coming back, and now DeLuca’s sister is being introduced.
