  • Great episode.

    The Good Wife delivers another thoroughly enjoyable episode on Tuesday night. The show has already achieved status of being called an upper-echelon courtroom drama after just six episodes. No longer is this a show solely about female empowerment, it's a show that takes an in-depth look at the world of trial law and how some of the most important players are the people you would least expect. I point this out every week, but the show is just so realistic in its portrayal of lawyers and how they behave. Think of this like HBO's In Treatment, but faster-paced and possibly even more exciting.

  • Great story

    I most say, the still manage to find diversity in cases and I liked this episode for it. It was not just another of those "innocent" people they have to prove. There was the multilayered doubt. They were not sure if he is innocent and when they started to get there, it always seemed more to be about the family than that one man.



    I also liked what Alicia's char had to go trough. I mean, I loved Kalinda being against it, being against helping cop killer and how she more and more started to do, bringing up really important evidence, and finally the piece that cracked the case.



    And the court hall humor was good.moreless

    • Kalinda: We'll split the interviews.
      Cary: How long you been working at Stern and Lockhart?
      Kalinda: No.
      Cary: What?
      Kalinda: Ask them about the M.O., the Bulls sweatshirt, anything that's remotely similar to Clarence.
      Cary: What did I do?
      Kalinda: Uninterested.
      Cary: You're uninterested in talking?
      Kalinda: How much would you imagine we'd have in common?
      Cary: I don't like talking to people I have a lot in common with.
      Kalinda: Okay, I have a proposition for you. Find this person, I'll tell you whatever you want to know
      Cary: Whatever I want to know?
      Kalinda: And more.
      Cary: Okay, you just saved Clarence Wilcox's life.

    • Kalinda: You know what I like about you? You're three months into a ten-year sentence, and you're plotting your political comeback.
      Peter: Politics is just a game of Chutes and Ladders. Right now, I'm at square one.

    • Alicia: I've got to get this to Will. It's enough for evidentiary appeal.
      Kalinda: Probably, but if you're going to go all the way with this, you're going to have to talk to your husband.
      Alicia: My husband? Why?
      Kalinda: He knows where the bodies are buried.

    • Cary: (he just accepted to do pro bono work) What? It's a good cause.
      Alicia: I'm just trying to fit this into the fuller Cary picture.
      Cary: Hey, there aren't that many generations left. You've taken the greatest generation, the lost generation, the Pepsi generation, so what do we have left? The surprise generation? So, surprise.

    • (running as a team to make their point to Will's office )
      Alicia: This is odd.
      Cary: Yeah, We can compete tomorrow.
