    The opening moments of this episode had to be among the best in show history. A great, high-octane scene with the viewer wondering whether Peter would get away with it, and after a coverup that would make Sonny Corinthos proud, they were able to do such.

    The corresponding story was great as well, and very relateable in today's news with the whole new immigration law in the state of Arizona. Tonight we saw that Alicia is actually like Peter with the way she would bend the rules to get what she wants, even if she won't admit it.

    The other storyline with Will as a judge was great too. I got angry when the student had him removed for bias. Such a low thing to do.

    Great episode tonight. Among the best this season.moreless
  • Very good episode

    Loved it. Every pit of it. It had so many storylines, so many layers.. And it managed to put it all into that one episode.

    First of all it had that family storyline what brought the kids in again and asking who is Will. Loved that moment. And the moment downstairs too.. the panic on room.. That was great.

    Then the whole case with those indians. The way nothing was liked it seemed. That was just good.. And if case was interesting with unexpected turns.. then Will as a mock judge. Loved that. The irony.. I mean.. when he was talking with Diana about the case.. What a lines..moreless

      Peter: I did.

      Alicia: No.
      Gerald Kozko: Mrs. Florrick...
      Alicia: No, that's it, Mr. Kozko. I'm not your go-between. You want to give Peter a message, pick up the phone.
      Gerald Kozko: Mrs. Florrick, you don't realize...

    • Grace: Who's Will?
      Alicia: Will Gardner-- my boss.
      Grace: I heard you talking to him on the phone. A week ago. You were whispering. At night.
      Alicia: He's my boss... and we used to know each other in college. And we thought that we were attracted to each other, but it's over.
      Grace: What's over?
      Alicia: Thinking that we were attracted to each other.
      Grace: But he's still your boss?
      Alicia: Yes.
      Zach: So what happened?

    • Will: Everything is all right.
      Alicia: You sure? Because... I'm sorry.
      Will: Alicia, you don't have any reason to be sorry. I was pushing a situation that was wrong to push.
      Alicia: You weren't.
      Will: I was.
      Will: Don't worry. We're good. We're going to be good.

      Alicia: But you could find her?
      Kalinda: So you're the pushover, I'm the one who actually does the work?
