With all due respect to Lisa Edelstein, I was never a fan of her character on House and I did not like her efforts here tonight. I think the show jumped at the chance to get her after the way her exit from House lit up the internet, but they gave her the kind of role that was all wrong for her. She's not slick and devious enough, not cunning enough for the character we saw tonight.
It was not all of her fault though. The whole mediation in the hotel seemed a little bit lame. Case a little too generic for this show. She did not help, but this was a pretty mediocre effort from The Good Wife.
