  • Wow, and good job Kalinda! (spoilers)

    I loved this episode. It was interesting to see some of the characters from another point of view, like Carey. And I especially loved the way Kalinda talked when she was in the court room. I thought she can't get out of this, but she did it so smart and perfectly! I really loved it, that goes to show how smart she really is. And makes me want to know more about her and about the other characters. Having Peter back at home, how will that go? And Alicia looking at herself in the mirror just before she opened the door, and then she looked at her hands like 'what am I doing?' was so well acted! The characters are very real to me and I just love it! Great show! Can't wait to find out more about the characters and their history.moreless
  • The best eppi I have seen so far

    This eppi was great and well written. I thoroughly enjoy this eppi from the start to the end. I loved how Kalinda testified. As she gave her testimony she kept referring to Client number 12. As I looked a the judge's face when she described him, I sat on my couch shocked and waiting for him to somehow react. When Peter's objected, I know the judge was so relieved. As Kalinda spoke to the judge about her continuing to testify, I watch the tide rapidly change for Peter. Now what I liked most was Peter's arrival. Alicia opens the door. Peter has his head down. Slowly he looks up and says "Hi."

    I am so eagerly waiting for March for the return of the new eppis.moreless

    A different episode of The Good Wife tonight, but it definitely worked. You had a very creative storyline this time, but the way they went about it was unique. Instead of talking about what the case was they showed it to us from everyone's point of view except Alicia's, who was left in the lurch, so to speak.

    The episode kind of dragged toward the end, but all in all it would be hard to not call this a great episode. Plus, there are so many directions the show can take from here after the Olympics are over and they return from hiatus.moreless
  • A few spoilers ahead if you haven't seen the episode! Amazing ep, more than enough to keep viewers hanging on til the return in March.

    One of my favourite episodes so far, Hi focuses on both Alicia's case, in which a husband is suspected on murdering the family babysitter and the other, Peter Florrick's appeal. Given a 48 hour time frame, the lawyers must prove the husband is innocent, while also staying one step ahead of police. As they try to figure out if the husband actually did it, Kalinda (as always) manages to get the guy before the police do. Alicia protects Cary, who is tripping balls after assuming he has the day off, and Kalinda tries to protect Alicia from hearing too much in her husband's appeal. During Peter Florrick's appeal, Childs - the current state's attorney steps into the prosecution to question Peter, as he testifies. He also subpoenas Kalinda to testify, resulting in some outmanoeuvring and Peter being granted a retrial. This episode was brilliant. I loved the fast pace of the first half, as the lawyers try to find the real murderer and get the husband off, tempered with the slow, steady pace that Chris Noth brings to Peter Florrick. I'm also really liking Christine Baranski as Diane, she brings maturity and wit to otherwise serious issues. Kalinda is, of course, a rock for all characters and Cary, well, who doesn't like to see a bit of drug-misuse among gen-y characters every now and then? The script is well written, if a little rushed towards the end, and while slightly predictable, there are enough twists to keep you hanging until the writers choose to give bits away. A few red herrings, and a couple of teasers to keep you waiting til after the Vancouver Olympics never go astray.moreless
  • Purely amazing episode

    Wow.. first of all. The way the episode starts: something major is happening and how the case just gets more and more confusing. First it is husband, then the wife.. They are not sure who is telling who and that separation what Will and Diane had to do. That was just great. Kalinda is more and more building her char and that was just brilliant the way she used her knowledge to avoid the questions she did not wanted to answer. She is just so in on all that mess.

    So.. It was totally a major episode. That hard case, those choices Alicia had to do the whole new trial case. Brilliant. Just brilliantmoreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Peter: So, you know the offer you made?
      Glenn: What offer would that be?
      Peter: Freedom today if I don't fight the conviction. Stay disbarred, can't run again.
      Glenn: Yes, that offer. Smart move would be to take it.
      Peter: Mm.
      Glenn: So I have to imagine you're going to tell me to go to hell.
      Peter: You want the longer version?
      Glenn: Can't wait.
      Peter: I wouldn't get too comfortable in that office of yours.

    • Kalinda: (after being subpoenaed to Peter's appeal) I'm not testifying.
      Glenn: Then you're going to jail.
      Kalinda: Look, I've got nothing to offer.
      Glenn: You have everything to offer. You know you do. Peter Florrick lied on the witness stand. Tell the truth, he spends the next nine years in prison.
      Kalinda: Glenn.
      Glenn: What?
      Kalinda: Don't do this.
      Glenn: Come on, Kalinda. What do you care? You're out for yourself. You've always been out for yourself. And either way, you're going to tell the truth.
      Kalinda: You don't know that.
      Glenn: I know that the sun is coming up tomorrow, and that you are going to tell the truth on the stand. And Peter Florrick is going back to prison. End of story.

    • Alicia: (Cary is afraid Alicia told Will about his being high) Cary, I didn't tell him.
      Cary: Why didn't you? With the contest, you know, why-why didn't you tell him?
      Alicia: I... There are so many people lined up against us, I just don't want one more.
      Cary: I don't want you to lose.
      Alicia: I know. I don't want you to lose, either.
      Cary: I kind of like you.
      Alicia: I'm surprised, but I kind of like you, too.

    • Will: I don't understand marriage.
      Diane: It's a mysterious institution.
      Will: You never wanted it?
      Diane: Is that a proposal?
      Will: (ironically) Yes. I've been watching you from afar. (she chuckes)
