  • We follow Alicia through an eventful day where the Lockhart/Gardner lawyers end up on the bench with Hugo Chavez, dictator, against an oil company. The DA elections are finally here and Kalinda gets very worried...

    This was a superb installment. The camera follows Alicia as she meets up with her realtor to view a fine house somewhere in the suburbs. People keep on calling her. Everybody wants something from her: The new temp (the former nanny who Eli Gold took under his protective wings) has new insight in an important case. Eli Gold tries to convince her to give an interview. Diane is convinced by the Democratic Committee to give Alicia the afternoon off, so that she can give an interview that she does not want to give in the first place. The investigator from Child's office follows Alicia to ask her about the missing pages from the Blake interview. And Will follows Alicia with longing eyes throughout the episode.
    Well, where did it all lead? Alicia gave the interview. Will watches her on TV and thinks her 'fantastic'. Peter won the elections. The kids are happy. Peter's mom is happy. Eli Gold is happy until he has to say goodbye to that nanny/daytrader/translator. Alicia is mostly stressed and quite happy with everything until she realizes that it was Kalinda the investigator was referring to. Kalinda is tense and we have reason to believe that things are going to change as Alicia leaves the election party crying... Some things cannot be forgiven. Might Alicia seek revenge? Will there finally be some interaction between Alicia and Will? Alicia has taken too much crap already, she has to take her life back. But can 'The Good Wife' live on without a 'good' wife?
    Somehow they managed without the candidate, which is somewhat remarkable given that it was election night. But I'm sure he was needed somewhere else...
    Can't wait till the next episode, whenever that will be.
