  • Treachery afoot.....

    10
    I swear this show just gets better and better. Another outstanding rally from Alicia, against pretty much everyone in their attempts to use her as a pawn in their little games. It amazes me still how they underestimate her so. Topped off with a fantastic stand off of sorts between Alicia & Diane, the claws are most definitely out!
  • Not Quite Diane.....

    8.0
    The look on Diane's face in the final screen when Alicia was thanking everyone, that perhaps not all is as Diane originally hoped for. Perhaps Alicia may yet play her "get out of jail card" after all, not all is as it may seem to be. What's behind Alicia's patronising the partners that Diane wants to decipher?... remains to be seen I guess. Good episode overall.

    I actually enjoyed this episode, yes Diane & Will did use Alicia, but isn't that the politics off working in a Law Firm. Alicia was not impressed but you know your playing in the big league now Alicia & you have been for awhile, so suck it up. Religion plays a big deal in Politics, people do tend to vote for someone who believes in GOD rather than a Atheist. The other case about Chum Hum & the Pre-Nup wasn't that interesting, although Maddie is really getting on my nerves. I can only hope Kalinda can dig up something really dirty about her past.moreless

    Given all the recurring cast they had in this episode, I was a little bit disappointed by tonight's The Good Wife. It was interesting to finally see Diane and Will using Alicia a little bit, but a very boring case they were working on with the prenup dominated too much of the show, as did the religious debate, which did not even have a fitting conclusion.



    We have come to expect a bit more from this series.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Eli: If Jesus were to show up in your office right now, you'd believe in him, wouldn't you?
      Alicia: No
      Eli: Yes, you would. If he performed a miracle.
      Alicia: Well, if Jesus walked into my office right now and performed a miracle, then yes... I would believe in God.
      Eli: Good. See? You're a seeker.

    • Cary: Hey, you have the bar exam this week, don't you?
      Clarke: Yes, I do.
      Cary: Good luck.
      Clarke: Thank you. But I don't know, I've come to not like the law. It's not very precise.
      Cary: It can be, it just depends on the way you practice it.
      Clarke: You're right. It can be.

    • Diane: You know why I was made partner? Jonas Stern was sued for sexual harassment, and he needed to show that he had a female partner. That's all. When the door that you have been knocking at finally swings open, you don't ask why, you run through. That is the simple fact. No one is here to make it comfortable for you. No one is here to appreciate your moping, so this is my advice to you, take a minute for yourself, put on your best gracious voice, find a way to wear a smile, and then come into the conference room ready to thank the equity partners for giving you this opportunity. Because what is given can quickly be taken away.

    • Jordan: Just need a minute with the God question.
      Alicia: The God question?
      Jordan: Uh, the question of belief. What do you believe? Uh, I believe your father was politely Anglican and your mother was politely nothing. Am I being too personal?
      Alicia: You're being something.

    • Clarke: We? When did we become a we?
      Canning: You're right, I'm being presumptuous. Lockhart/Gardner is a good firm with good people who are being mismanaged. Now, if you agree with that, then we are a we.
      Clarke: I'm not here to destroy it.
      Canning: I know. You're here to make sure the firm's creditor, myself, gets paid, and to put a good firm on firmer footing. That's what I want, too.

    • David: That concession was damaging. We can't afford any more giveaways.
      Alicia: David, she's a woman in love, it's gonna be hard to motivate her.
      Kalinda: Do you need dirt?
      David: Yes. But that's the challenge about prenups, you need to throw enough dirt on the spouse to get something, but not too much to kill the wedding.
      Kalinda: I'll be delicate.
