Episode Recap

Alicia, who is feeling more confident than ever, returns to court to defend a college student. The student who is Muslim was accused of assault on a Jewish student during a brawl that occurred on campus. The case appeared to be easy at first. There was no evidence that connected Alicia's client to the crime they were accused of. In fact this hyped up case feels like Peter is trying to make a bold statement on his triumphant return to the job.

Kalinda finds a photo that could prove that their client was not at the scene of the crime when it had happened but Lockhart and Gardner had already secured the win. Things take a turn though when the prosecution unveils their new plan. The photo that Kalinda found may have proven that their client was innocent in the case of the assault, however he is now the primary suspect in a separate murder investigation.
