Episode Recap

In tonight's episode Alicia Florrick must try to save the pensions of three engineers who the company blames on leading to a deadly crash. The wives of the deceased engineers are in dire straits and desperately need the money.

Alicia and Cary Agos also interview several candidates for the position of their assistant, but they all turn out to appease just one, or none, of the two and not both.

Jackie Florrick also decides to take the kids, Zach and Grace, to see Peter Florrick in jail, expressly against Alicia's orders.

Alicia finds out that one of the widows slept with Eldridge and brings it out in the courtroom in order to win the case, but ruins the woman's wife in the process. Alicia ends the episode by visiting Peter in prison.
