Empty MC, new bench bleeding?

My first attempt to fill brake fluid in the new brake system failed. Lots of leaks because I made the double flares too flat.

I think the master cylinder drained empty. I did not pump the pedal while it was empty. Do I have to bench bleed it once more?

That's what I thought.
I've already done a new bench bleeding. It was air in it.

Thanks for the answer.
