Episode Summary

Lockhart-Gardner takes on the U.S. Government for a military contractor who claims that he was tortured by the army in Afghanistan. While Diane and the team go through boxes of documents, mostly blacked out, Alicia must meet with a government monitor whose authority overrides attorney/client privilege. When counsel reveals damning evidence about the client, Alicia is asked by the monitor to reveal the evidence that would lead to his imprisonment… and if she doesn't, she may have to go to prison herself. So Alicia gets an attorney to help her with the questioning. At the State's Attorney's office, Peter decides to go after Will Gardner, who stole money from a client at his old firm in order to take care of his gambling addiction.

    I loved this episode. The acting & writing were fantastic. My favorite part was Alicia saying to Elsbeth, "I want to learn from you" and then Elsbeth's reaction. PRICELESS!
  • Very good episode!!!

    I first must say that I miss Cary at Lockhart/Gardner. Last season they toyed with us a little that he actually may be coming back, but he didn't. He is a really good lawyer and continues to be a thorn in his former firm's side. He tells a co-worker that when they fired him, he decided to fight them hard from his new job. But he still has somewhat of a soft spot for some aspects of the firm and it makes me mad because I would really just love a reason to hate him. But i don't because he is occasionally very good. I wanted to see him get with Kalinda though, not this Dana.

    Diane has more than just suspicions of Will and Alicia having a relationship and I don't really know what her endgame is, but i don't like where she Is going with this sexual harassment awareness stuff just to get a point across to the two of them. I understand that the realtionship could potentially be bad for the firm because of other players involved, but I'm a sucker for forbidden romance.

    Finally, Will has called Peter out on coming after him. That was the most exciting part of the episode. But, What is Peter getting at by removing himself from the investigation? I know he isn't done. He is just keep it from public knowledge that he Is involved. This will get bigger and I cant wait. I'm team Will!

    Oh Caitlin... Im not quite sure about her yet. She Is good, Yes. But is she going to make trouble for Alicia? It is clear that she has eyes for Will. I don't like it, so I am hoping that she changes my mind and is a good addition to the show.

    Last but not least, Alicia's lawyer in this episode, Elsbeth Tascioni, is one word: hilarious! She is quirky and funny, but smart. She talks and in mid sentence, mid thought even, she will just stop and change direction. She is crazy.moreless

    Alicia's lawyer was funny, Russell from Seinfeld was a nice little character too, and the premise for this episode was clever, I don't think any show has usedthis yet,but from a writing standpoint it was one of the goofiest episodes yet. They tried for too much humor instead of letting it come naturally like it has in the past.

    Still, a fast-moving and fun episode of The Good Wife here tonight. Definitely suggest you watch it.
